I’m hungry

Z got really mad at me tonight.

Z: Mommy, I’m hungry. (she had already eaten dinner)
Me: Ok, you can go get some fruit.
Z: I DON’T WANTfruit!!!
Me: Ok. You can have some veggies. There are some cherry tomatoes in the fridge.
Z: You ALWAYS want me to eat HEALTHY FOOD!!! (she’s starting to get angry with me…)
Me: Well, yeah. Why do you think I want you to eat healthy food?
Z: (in her angriest 5 yr old voice, accompanied by tears) BECAUSE YOU WANT ME TO BE HEALTHY!!!!! (and then falls to the ground crying)



Me:  Z, how was school today?

Z:  It was great!  I learned lots of stuff!

Me:  What did you learn?

Z:  I can’t remember.

Skinny Jeans

Z – Mommy, I want skinny jeans.
Me – Skinny jeans?  WHERE did you learn about skinny jeans? 

Z – My friend “D” has some

Me – Do you even know what skinny jeans are?

Z – Yeah.  They’re like this.  (and proceeded to pull the jeans tight around her leg)

Me –  YOU’RE FIVE!  You should NOT be concerning yourself with SKINNY jeans.

Darn it!!!

Mommy, is “darn it” a bad word?

Well, it’s not really a nice thing to say, but it’s not bad either.

What if I have a hole in my sock?  I have to “darn it”, right?

Well, yeah, I guess so.  (as I’m laughing)

One. Two. Three times….

Z, how many times have I asked you to pick that up?


Then why have you not done it?

Because, you have to ask me THREE times!!!!


I asked Z if she liked the dinner I cooked.  Her response?  “It’s not as good as I expected it to be, but it is good.”.

Me – Z, why are you naked?

Z – Well, I have this naked butt concept where all the kids are naked.
