still at dinner. 7yo lies down on her bench seat, then pops up saying “stick to the script” about 15 times.
me: is there an off button for your mouth?
7yo: no, there isn’t. [points to one side of mouth] this is the louder button. [points to bottom of mouth] this is the speed up button. [points to top left of mouth] this is the off button. [points to other side of mouth] this is the talk really fast button. so i’m going to cover up the off button so you can’t press it. actually i’m going to rip it off so you can’t press it. [proceeds to practically pull her lips off making horrible sound] there!
got home today and before i could even put down my purse and bag, 6yo runs up to me with a bloody top lip. apparently she was trying to do a handstand and somehow kneed herself in the mouth. *sigh*
the upside is that she made one of her slightly loose front teeth looser.
8yo: I’m taking pictures with my photographic memory. and my mouth is printing them out. [making buh buh buh noises]
4yo [with wide ribbon over her mouth]: [moves ribbon] what am i? [puts ribbon back]
me: i don’t know. what are you?
4yo: [moves ribbon] i can’t tell you with this over my mouth.
me: ok, so what are you?
4yo: i don’t know.
4yo to 6yo: my mouth opens wider than yours.
