Twin Things

Gorgeous Boy and Evil Sparkle Overheard three-year-old twins in lounge room this morning: Him: "It's a ant" Her: "It's a cwockwoach" Him: "No, Chloe, it's A Ant." Her: "It's a cwockwoach." Him: "NO -it's A ANT!" (pause, I imagine there was a closer physical examination, then calmly:) Her: "No. It's a cwockwoach." Him: "NO CHLOE!!! IIIIT'S AAAAA AAAA-AAAAANT!!!" Her: "-" Him:(desperate for reaction) "IIIIT'S AAAAAAAAAAAAAA AAAAAAAAA-AAAAA-AAAANT" Her: (like it was always obvious) "Oh, yes, dat's a ant." Case closed. God help their future spouses, they're well past the old married couple thing. mtc Bec PS - In the interlude brought on by Kim's brief but understandable absence in the maternity ward, and my frequent and unexplainable (as opposed to inexplicable) absences in work overload mode, expect more quick and easy domestic moments like this...sorry!

Michele sent me to visit in on your domestic bliss, Bec.

So did you ever investigate to see which one it was? The two bugs don't look alike at all so the confusion is difficult to understand--unless it's just a thing with 3 year olds--or trying to annoy her brother.

Hi Utenzi, I'm betting a smidgin of under-sofa fluff is the winner and no, didn't investigate myself! The rest of the house was in half-hour-to-school/work time mode so any amusement the littlest ones could find for themselves was a bonus!

here from micheles! I have a 2 and 3yr old, I often wonder what they're going to be like when they're married too. Probably call each other and complain about each others spouses in their own little language.

They have cockroaches in Australia? Did you know cockroaches can live ten days without heads? They eventually die from a lack of water- nothing else! Eww. I learned that from children's television today!

When's Kim getting home? I want to hear more news!!!

Kids argue about the funniest things when they are little! Always good for a smile.

Hi Bec! Michele sent me. This conversation could have easily occurred at my house amongst any of the three kids. Cracks me up!!

Congrats on the new baby. I'm sure he is lovely and deliciously kissable!!
