An Explanation

I waited until a few minutes ago, when Claire was in a different state of mind and the twins were napping, and then asked THE question: "why did you pee on the floor?".

First answer: "because I forgot where the toilet was."

Second answer: "because the Wonder Pets did it."

Third answer: "because I was mad at Dad because he wouldn't let me have more milk, and I was hoping he'd slip in it."

If her act of vengeance weren't so gross, I'd find her (real) answer quite funny.

On a different note, I took the kids to HyVee this morning to pick up some dinner items and fruit, and Molly threw a world-class fit in the store because I wouldn't let her have a banana until after we paid for them. She screamed at the top of her lungs (and she's got a fantastic set of lungs) and everyone was staring and wishing I could calm her down. The only amusing part is that once they realized she was screaming for .... a banana (and not candy) ... I had six people in the store laughing at us whereas minutes before they were scowling our way.

Sheesh. Kids.

Oh my, Kate! The 3rd answer is absolutely hysterical! Did you laugh when she told you that? I just laughed out loud reading it!
