|My highly amusing kids

Amy was watching X-Men 2 this evening, and shortly after it finished she and Erin engaged in their favorite sport - bickering. I can't even remember what it was about, but at some point Erin flounced into the kitchen and tossed, "You are a mutant!" over her shoulder.
"Yeah that's right, and here's my mutant power!" Amy shouted, then extended a middle finger. "I can flip you off through walls!"
I know I shouldn't laugh....

Your kids are funny bastards.
Bastards meant in a nice Australian way of course.
I ADORE your children. :) One of the kid stories I've never forgotten was your "Lock the door" "And hope they don't have blasters" from years and years ago. Glad to see they're still good little geek girls. *g*

Erin reminded me of that just the other day. She was, what, 7 when she said that?
I love my kids.
Well, maybe you shouldn't, but I would have too... ;)
I wish I had that power. It would be handy at work.
LOL...I gotta meet this kid :)
We might try to come by Game Night on Friday for a while. She plays a mean Apples to Apples.
This is what I am missing by having had my kids seven years apart, huh?
Oh, well, I guess I'll just have to enjoy the tales told by others... Thanks for sharing! :)

Oh, no. Mine are six years apart. You just have to wait until one is a teen and the other is on the cusp of it.
Erin always had a wicked sense of humor. Amy's was a little slower in developing, but she has really blossomed in the last couple years.
Oh, dear God, that's funny!!!!!!!!!
And what' wrong with laughing? Just make sure that it's where Amy won't hear or see it, that's all.
Our little one wound up cursing so adorably once that after we sent him to the corner for saying words he knew he shouldn't say, starbrow
and I shut my door and we had a gigglefit into the pillows.
I think he said, "This was a bad word: Ass!"
I am so jealous...I wish I lived in your house.
Someone told me once that the toughest thing about being a parent was NOT laughing...
There have been more than a few times that that was true. And for more than a few reasons. Erin's vocabulary at three far outstripped expectations for children her age. (When Erin two, her auntie was pointing at a stained glass window and naming the colors. She pointed to one spot and said, "and that's yellow." Erin looked up at her with pity-filled eyes and gently responded, "Actually, it's amber.") It used to drive her crazy when she would make a statement and people would laugh in surprise at her word usage, but sometimes it was hard not to because she was so little and it seemed so incongruous.
Okay, that's amusing.
I'm actually pretty casual about these things.
Oh my goodness! That's too funny! :)
Did I mention lately that I love your kids?
*laughing out loud at that one*
I'm not a 12 year old stuck in a 31 year old body, not me! Oh, no! I didn't find that amusing in the least! *still snickering quietly*
Heeeeeeeeeheheheheh, now that is an awesome super power :)
I'm looking forward to you guys getting to spend more time with her.
