Madi (to us): Oh, wow, you guys should go to Taco Bell!!
Me: No, you need to put on a new pair.
Trevor: But why???
Me: Because clean underwear is always a good thing.
Trevor (with furrowed brow): Hmmm...
Us: Yeah, that's right.
Madi: And there are statues of him and George Washington in Russia.
Madi: In Russia.
Jimmy: Russia? Do you mean Washington D.C.? (Because they sound so much alike...?)
Madi: Hmm, maybe it's in another state...
Jimmy: Are you talking about Mount Rushmore?
Madi Yeah, that's it!! I saw it on a movie at school!
Me: Don't be a tattletale.
(Repeat similar conversation several times.)
Trevor: Mom, Jacob called me a tattletale. I'm a tattletale! (Bursts into tears.)
Me (who had told him not to be a tattletale at least five times at this point): Trevor, do you know what a tattletale is?
Trevor (crying): Someone who is bad to their mother?!?!
(At which point I explain to him what a tattletale is feeling like an idiot that I never considered the fact that he may not fully understand what one was when I told him over and over not to be one. And then told him again not to be one. Unless it's an emergency.)
Madi: Why did the chicken cross the park?
Me: I don't know, why?
Madi: To get to the other slide!
Madi: What did the pig say to the other pig on Valentine's Day?
Me: I don't know, what?
Madi: Happy "Valenswine's" Day!!
Madi: What did the the peanut butter say to the jelly when he told it a secret?
Madi: Don't spread it!!
Me: Are you learning these in kindergarten? Or from your GG? (Because my grandma has her fair share of joke books, that is one thing I know...)
Madi (to Jimmy and me): I want a flamillion.
Us: A what?
Madi: A flamillion.
Us: What is a flamillion?
Madi (looking shocked we don't know): A pet. That changes colors.
Us: Ohhh, a chameleon!
Madi: Yeah, I want one of those!
All I know is this...Jimmy and I will not be going to Taco Bell, and as far as the "flamillion" goes, I think Madi better just dream on...
