Where's the real Jessica?

Today at dinner, I almost fell off my chair. Jessica actually ate something green and liked it!

Unplugged with Lindsay and Jessica Bott

While we were having breakfast this morning, Linsday, my 6 year old looks at me and says:
"Why are you wearing that t-shirt mom?...When you wear that t-shirt you look like a real chinese person who doesn't know how to speak english!"

This gets me laughing with shock and bewilderment.

Then Jess pipes up and says:
"I wish I was californian. Californians just take off all their clothes and jump in the water."

Little Engineers

Step 1: Lindsay sketches out her design on her napkin at dinner time
Step 2: After dinner the girls get to work and start the foundation

Step 3: The frame is up... and it kind of resembles the original design :-)
Step 4: Fort Rocket is open!

The Manipulator

Tonight after dinner, Dave let Lindsay and Jessica pick out their "treat" for the evening. "The girls have had their treat!" he calls out to me. So I make a note to self - do not let the girls have any more treats tonight.

Shortly thereafter, Jess comes up to me,

"Mom, I haven't had my treat yet"

I quickly respond "Take it up with your Father Jess. He said you already had one."

So Jess dissappears to the basement to talk to Dave. She comes back to me and says

"Daddy said yes!"

"If I go downstairs and ask Daddy if he let you have a treat will he say yes?" I say

"Nooo don't ask him - he already knows!" she pleads

"Nice try Jess" I say.

Later that evening I asked Dave, "Did Jess come downstairs and ask you if she could have another treat? Because she told me you said yes." He laughs and says, "She came downstairs and asked me "Did I have my treat already dad?" and I responded "Yes!" so then she went back to you and said "Daddy said yes! What a smart girl!"

That little sneak!

Back Seat Driver

Today as Dave was driving our 3 year old daughter Jessica home from Daycare-

While growing impatient idling at a red light, Jess yells to the driver in front of us, "Move pinhead!"

I cocked my eyebrow at Dave and responded "Gee, I wonder where she got that one from?"

Time's up Grandma

This past weekend when Brenda (Grandma) was having lunch with us, I mentioned to her about how I need to discipline the girls on how to be more helpful around the house. Things like making their own bed in the morning, clearing the table after meals, making me coffee...

So Brenda says to the girls, "Did you hear that girls? It's time for you to start helping mommy around the house."

Jess looks up and says, "It's time to go home Grandma!"
