i walk past 10yo and she makes this horrible growling scratchy noise.

me:  WTH was that??

10yo:  i was just clearing my throat in a loud and unfriendly way.


way to make an exit

me [to 7yo]: it’s bedtime.

7yo:  I WILL NOW LEAVE THE ROOM IN AN EXTREMELY WEIRD WAY.  [wiggles, hops, jumps, spins, dances, tumbles out the door with a bizarre look on her face]

whereupon daddy and i look at each other, shake our heads and start laughing.
