Maia wants corn sticks for dinner. (corn on the cob)
and recently asked if we could have peas on the cob. she meant pees in the pod.

yesterday she asked her dadddy this question "When Danielle, our big sister, was little was she your age?" huh?

and an Ethan funny, I heard him singing in the bathroom. what was he singing? I'll say hillshire! You say Farms! HILLSHIRE! FARMS! GO MEAT!

at lunch she couldnt understand why I dont like the cheese puffs. I said I just dont like them. I am sure there are some things you dont like. Can you think of something you dont like? she sat thoughtfully and quietly for a moment and then said softly "I don't like owls very much." I laughed and said I meant FOOD you dont like then she said oh you mean like mustard? I said yes. she said she didnt like mustard, but she still doesnt like owls very much.

no owls were harmed in this interaction.

a word from Maia

Maia hates to leave her playing to come in and potty and has on occasion just gone outside if she thought she wouldnt get caught but you can bet with two brothers and a sister SOMEONE is going to tell on you. Grandma has an outhouse outside for just that reason as they spend a lot of time outside. the difference being, we live in town and she on 70 or 80 acres. Fast forward to today
Maia comes running in to use the bathroom and said Mama? I want to build an outhouse!
No amount of explaining on my part seems to be able to make her understand we cant DO that here where we live. what a kid.

funny Maia again

out of nowhere she wants to know if it hurts when people take out utensils.
WHAT? you mean your tonsils?
yeah utensils.
you go to sleep and when you wake up it hurts a little.
well then I dont want to take out utensils.

background: there has been no talk of anyone having out their tonsils and she is hardley ever even sick so I dont know where she got the idea she was getting her tonsils out. do they even DO that anymore?

funny things from Ethan

"wow! I feel like a new woman!"
then after sounding out the word whip he said "whip YOUR wallet into shape!"
sometimes he cracks us up

Maia is very astute these days as well. after driving to the vet for flea stuff she announced mom? Fleas make dogs SCRATCH!!
