Quotes From the Daily Life of a Mommy Writer

In case it hasn’t been made abundantly clear, I have kids. Five of them to be specific:

Kids1Considering their pictures are already all over my Steampunk Wedding page, I’m not too concerned with posting this pic. Though, as it is on that page, here they will be going by nicknames for their protection.

Zigzgging down from the top row from the left we have Hippie Chick (age 16), Drama Queen (age 15), Bratz Princess (age 12), Doctor Boy (age 9), and Baby Girl (age 6). Now that you can put faces to the “names”, I would like to submit for your approval (and some giggles), a few choice quotes that float around the air here at Casa Rising on a daily basis as Mom sits at her computer trying to work…

Doctor Boy: “Can The Doctor fly? (AKA Dr. Who) I bet I can! I need a normal screwdriver, though, cuz my window’s really hard to open.”

Baby Girl: “When I grow up, I’m going to be a spy at night and a teacher during the day!”
Bratz Princess: “When will you sleep?”
Baby Girl: “Duh. When I’m 36!”

Drama Queen: “Excuse me while I go find my dignity.”

Me: “Hi. How was your day?”
Bratz Princess: “I’m bloating and I gotta go potty. How was your day?”

Drama Queen: “Why is there PANCAKE BATTER in my COMBAT BOOTS?”

Baby Girl: “I already swept (a-tiny-toilet-paper-square area). It’s Doctor Boy’s turn!”
Doctor Boy: “Mom told YOU to sweep, not me!”
Baby Girl: “Nu-uh. You sweep (this tiny area) and I sweep (this other tiny area). Mom said!”
Doctor Boy and Baby Girl: “MOOOOOOOOOM!”

Hippie Chick: “I’ll be in high school until I’m OOOOLD!”

Bratz Princess: “I’m going to blow up… then explode.”

Doctor Boy: “That’s some bukly, BULGY baby!”

Baby Girl: “Since poop is stuff you already ate, you can eat it again, right?”

… and my personal favorite:
