The frogs have been discovered!
Two frogs. Can you see them?
Frog with a bug on it's head. Classy.
Are we in October? Nope. Just having fun with the cousins in June! Lilija is the white Power Ranger and Kale is Spiderman. And little Miss Calah is about ready to rip Kale's mask off. She apparently didn't like the idea of dress up time - or maybe she just doesn't have a thing for Spiderman...

Place: In the car
Setting: Carl and I were bantering back and forth about something (nicely…not arguing)
Lilija: “Daddy, be nice. Mama, be nice. Okay? You need to be nice, because you’re being rude.”
Place: In the “formal” living room
Setting: Carl and Lilija are on the love seat and Lilija is using the Tag Reader with her special books. I am chasing Calah around the living room and through the kitchen.
Lilija: “Sssh, Mama. Try to be more quiet. I’m trying to concentrate on my book, okay?”
Place: Our bedroom
Setting: Carl and I are folding laundry and are talking. Lilija and Calah enter the room…
Lilija: (grabs Calah’s hand) “Come on Calah, lets’ go. Mama and Daddy are talking.” (escorts Calah out of our room)
Place: Lilija's bedroom
Setting: I'm in the bedroom with Lilija and Calah and Lilija has just referred to Calah as "he" instead of "she" for about the millionth time.
Me: "Calah is not a he! She is a she! She! She! She! Why do you keep calling her a "he?!"
Lilija: "Because you make me nervous."
Me: "What did you just say?"
Lilija: (quietly) "You make me nervous."
Setting: I had gotten a play tea set at a garage sale and Lil and Cal are playing with it in the tub. Lilija is pretending that her ducks are coming to the tea party. Note: The role of "Duck" is played by Lilija in a higher squeaky voice.
Lilija: "Do you want some tea?"
Duck: "No, I want some chocolate coffee."
Lilija: "You need to be patient."
Duck: "I want some chocolate coffee!"
Lilija: "I don't have chocolate coffee. I just have the real kind."
Duck: "Ok. I'll have that."
