Carlyle, the drama:
C: I wish I was You mommy....
C: If I were you Mommy. I would do everything my children want.
Me: "When I became a mommy, I had to learn that my job as a Mommy is to keep you safe, happy and healthy."
"I don't want to go to school. It's just boring for my life."
"Baby Lyla is so cute. I just can't stop thinking about her."
C: Mom, do you know Ilene's sister has... A boyfriend?
Me: "Wowee, really?"
C: Mom, why did you say wowee?
Me: "Because just big girls have boyfriends."
C: (A sly smile)
Me: "Why? Do you know younger girls that have boyfriends?"
C: pause... Yes, mommy! Me? Will?
C: And guess what?.... He is Irene's boyfriend too!!
Me: "Ha! Really. So you have the same boyfriend?"
C: And Madeline too.
Me: "And what is a boyfriend? Like what does that mean?"
C: Mom (like duh?), he's just a boy. And my friend. So you put the words together... Boy--friend.
Me: "Ah! Good."
Me: "Why don't I make you some soup?"
C: Actually, you can make that for me when I'm sixty-five. But I won't like that when I'm four.

I need my Moozma-jock shoes. My Moozma-jock.
