Setting the stage here... me loading the dish washer after dinner, Molly is supposed to be brushing her teeth for bedtime, but walks into the kitchen holding her toothbrush...
Molly: "Mom, I think I need a new toothbrush."
Me: "Oh yeah, why's that?"
Molly: "Mine's getting old, look it's all hard."
Me: "Just get it wet, it will soften up."
(She's jealous because her sister has a new one, her's is not that old)
Me: "Besides, maybe if you finally get that front tooth out- the tooth fairy will bring you a new one."
Molly: "Really? You really think she'll bring me a new toothbrush? Will she still leave money?"
Me: "I'm sure." *pause*
Me: "What makes you think the tooth fairy is a girl?"
Molly: "Because it's a fairy and fairies are girls. *pause* Well maybe it's mixed- maybe the boys have boy fairies and the girls have girl fairies, cuz that's how fairies like it."
Me: "Molly- go brush your teeth"...so I can pee my pants laughing. Ok, I am sorry- but this was funny and she didn't even know it. Hubby went to the store so he missed this- I am here chuckling, giggling, trying to control myself and I am the only one who heard this fairy conversation. Gotta love those words with the double meaning.
Molly brings home her Friday folder from school and is showing off all of her hard work from the week. She is learning sight words and they did a booklet for the word- WE.
On the cover is WE WE WE WE-
Molly: "This is our reading sight word book this week, I want to read it to you. "
Molly: "WE WE WE WE"
Me: "Do you have to go to the bathroom?"
Molly: "Huh? No Mom- I went at school- I promise"
(she has a habit of holding it ALL day and has been called out on this a lot lately)
*pause* *longer pause*
Molly: "Mo-o-o-m!! Oh oh oh that's funny- I get it," *snickering to herself* "Ha- like Wee Wee."
Me: " What are you talking about Molly, it doesn't say wee wee, it just says We."
*winking and giggling* (what am I teaching her?!!)
