7yo: i feel like…..lemonade.
7yo: yes, that means i feel cold.
me:…..so of all the ways to describe your being cold, you chose lemonade??
7yo: actually, it means that i feel refreshing.
me [worried what this new turn might bring]: refreshing…..
7yo: which means that i’m sleepy.
me: *gives up and proceeds to ignore child”
i’m brushing out 9yo’s hair to ensure no tangles since they wake up with monster rat’s nests in their hair every night. i brush her hair forward.
9yo: i feel like i’m wearing a hair net at a cat’s funeral.
oh geez. i was just asked how to spell “feel” which means one of the girls’ famous notes is coming. this one is by 6yo who is going to tell us she is upset that she cannot sleep in our bed for like the 2,000th time. *sigh*
