Kids say the funniest things

Stella  threw a bowl of dry cheerios on the ground.  This is the conversation that we had

"Stella could you please get off the chair and pick up those cheerios."

"Mom, I can't I am busy."

"Oh, you're busy are you." 

"Yes I am busy."
In the mean time she climbs off the chair and is looking at the cheerios.

"Well I think you should be busy cleaning up those cheerios."

"I can't pick them up because my body hurts."

"That is interesting your body hurts?"

"Huh, huh"

"Well I still think you should pick up the cheerios."
She picks one up and looks at it.
"Mom my hands are dirty, I can't pick them up."
Stella truly is a diva, she is too good to pick up her own messes!  Not to mention using some pretty good excuses not to help.  I think she has picked up those excuses from someone in our household.

that is too funny. it reminds me of how many times kennedy has told me that she has a headache or her stomach hurts when asked to do things.

I love it. Ellie says the funniest things too. I wish I had a recorder.
Funny pictures above too, of the kids all morphed up. I bet they had fun with that. Love you.

Stella is a girl from my own heart. It's pathetic sometimes but I pull the same game with Chad!

I should try some of those excuses next time - do you think that they will work the same for me???
