Well, I think they are quite humorous.
And so do they, quite frankly.
In fact, I'm fairly sure they consider themselves up-and-coming comedians.
Practicing their every move on one another and especially their Mama.
Here are a few recent happenings...
Kieran felt Declan kick for the first time this past week.
"Uh Mama...I think he wants to get out."
Yesterday Kieran drew with marker on his face. He drew three straight lines down his cheek.
Then he looked at me, with a mischievous smile, and said, "Look, Mama! I'm Mrs. Head-mark!"
In case I didn't get his brilliant humor, he added, "Get it? Marks on my HEAD?!?! Isn't that funny?!"
Kieran's pre-school teacher's name is Mrs. Hedmark.
I tried not to laugh...can you imagine him teaching all the little 3 and 4 year olds this new trick?
Yeah, it was hilarious.
The first prize winner goes to Hazel, though, this round.
For those of you who don't know, I use cloth diapers. Washing these babies is quite a process....one cold wash, one hot wash, one extra rinse, then hang dry the liners and throw the inserts in the tumble dry cycle. Needless to say, it take a while.
Well, two nights ago, I decided that I would start the wash before bath time. So, Hazel had to lose the diaper before going upstairs.
I took off her diaper, and she had an immediate response:
She actually squatted, smirked, and said, "pee pee?"
When I said no, not on the carpet..she upped the ante.
Hazel then squatted over Kieran's new notepad of paper, smirked an even bigger smirk, and repeated:
"pee pee now?"
Well, I was not about to clean the carpet AND hear screaming from Kieran, so I marched her over to the bathroom and sat her on the little potty.
As she has done a few times before, she immediately got up.
I encouraged her to sit down again. I mean, I did need another 30 seconds to put the diapers in the laundry!
Kieran then felt the need to check on Hazel's progress.
"No pee pee!" he declared.
But when I looked, he was actually wrong.
Hazel checked too, just to be sure...and was so proud.
My court jesters are growing up so fast!! Watch out, Comedy Central.
