The World's Youngest Teenagers!

Although I know in my brain that Orion is 3 years old and Gigi is 5, I still feel like I'm raising the world's youngest teenagers.


Here's the latest from the peanut gallery.


Orion: When I turn 4, I'm going to do whatever I want to do.


During a moment of intense frustration at Marcos and me...

Gigi: You... FOOLS!!!!


Gigi: (mumbles something inaudible)
Me: What was that?
Gigi: Nevermind.  What I said wasn't true.  I'm glad you didn't hear me.
Me: ...Okay...


At bath time when we reminded him not to do something dangerous...

Orion: It's my choice!  You can't control me!


Having a mommy daughter heart to heart about priorities and decisions that adults have to make...

Gigi: I want a nice house when I grow up and I want to keep it really clean and I want to make nice food and never eat...  What are those things we had on the airplane?  (This is half a year after our trip)
Metta: Uhhh... lunchables?
Gigi: Yes, lunchables!


Orion: Mom!  I'm going to be the new John Lennon in the Beatles!
