Kids Say

Like I’ve said a million times before (and will keep reminding you,) the Kids Say posts are some of my favorites. This one will probably be a little more special to me down the road because I questioned Liam and Kai on some things about me. 
I had seen some people posting a questionnaire that kids had answered about their Moms. But when my friend, Rose, posted her daughter’s answers on Facebook, I knew I had to join in. It was so sweet to me that the answers reveal in a childlike way how much they love and are being loved.  I asked Liam (age 6) and Kai (age 5) the questions separately so they wouldn’t base their answers off what the other said. So if you’re interested in reading, those are posted at the end of this regularly scheduled Kids Say post 😉
(plus a few extra iphone shots that didn’t make the cut in the last post—because I take too many pictures and I don’t like to blog without pictures!!)

Kai was trying to determine the source of a bad smell…

Me–“well, what does it smell like?”
Kai–“kind of like…..a bad duck.”
Me–“Kingston, what do you want to be when you grow up?”
Kingston–“A firefighter….with brown skin.”
(Sorry buddy, just like your parents, you will probably never exceed “extremely pale.”) 
After asking Kingston if he was excited about Chris and Rachel’s wedding..
“Yes! I love hotdogs!”
Because she has older brothers who always run to the window to watch the ice cream truck drive by and yell out which characters they see on the side of the truck (Sonic and Batman), every time Evangeline hears the ice cream truck coming, she shouts “BATMAN!” and runs to the window to watch it drive by.
As he was slurping out the last bit of gogurt from the tube, Kingston heard all the (obnoxious) sounds he was making and said, very seriously, “This is a beautiful song.”
Kai–“No, I didn’t say that out loud. I said it out quiet. 
Me–“Evangeline, were you testing your limits?”‘
Liam–“She was making her own limits.”
Liam–“It smells like Doritos in here. I guess it’s just Kingston’s feet.”
