Cora tonight on the way home from dance class:
Cora: Mom, you know what would be really gross?
Me: No, what?
Cora: If Summit threw up, and dad *licked it*
Me: Yup.. that'd be pretty gross (ew)

Cora: You know what would be even grosser?
Me: I don't dare imagine
Cora: If Summit threw up all over a slide and dad slid down it on his shirt and his tummy!

Seriously - who is this child?

It's time!  It's time for Milly's first official entry:

Ryan wanted Milly to come downstairs.  She was disinclined to acquiesce to his request (for all you POTC fans).  So, he started the "countdown".

Ryan:  ONE!
Milly: {appearing around the corner} Two, Free!  Ta-dah!

So Grown Up...

Cora:  I'm almost FIVE.  And when I marry Tyler, I'm going to kiss him on the LIPS.
Me: I think your dad wants to have a talk with Tyler's parents.

--and later, while watching TV--

Cora:  I'm gonna be a mom when I grow up.
Me: I think you'll be a very good mom.
Cora: But I'm not having any babies! They're a lot of work.
Me:  Well to be a mommy, you have to have babies.  You can't be a mommy without kids.  That's how it works.
Cora: {without looking away from the TV - in an annoyed voice}:  Ok. I'll have babies then.
