Thoughts on Kyra and Maeve.

So how do you decide who to marry?

"I think that they should be if someone likes math and the other person doesn't, then they can help each other out. Some people also look for if they are 20 years apart, then that's bad....." ----Kyra, age 8.5.

"I go to them and I ask them and marry them when I'm still a kid." ----Maeve, age 4.5.

What is the right age to get married?

"Probably about when you are 21-25....." ----Kyra

"10 years old....." ----Maeve

How can a stranger tell if two people are married?

"They are walking around in the store together and if you see two people walking around a house gardening or something, then they have to be married..." ----Kyra

"They got married this year...." ----Maeve

What do you think your mom and dad have in common?

"They both use the same soap...." ----Maeve

"They both share a room and that's really nice....." ----Kyra

What do most people do on a date?

"They eat for sure....and sometimes they go to a movie or go dancing...." ----Kyra

"They kiss...." ----Maeve

When is it ok to kiss someone?

"When someone tells you to....." ----Maeve

"When they are on a date or when you are married...." ----Kyra

Is it better to be single or married?

"It's better to be married....because then you can kiss." ----Maeve

"It's better to be married....because then you are able to share sad moments and you're able to have someone look out for you." ----Kyra

How would the world be different if people didn't get married?

"Sad....because there wouldn't be any kids." ----Maeve

"Sad....because we wouldn't even be alive because nobody was able to make us be born." ----Kyra

How would you make a marriage work?

"If your husband doesn't look pretty, tell him that he still looks pretty...." ----Maeve

"I would go on a date and ask him if he wants to marry me without the ring. If he says 'yes', then I would go out and pay for the ring after he said 'yes' and then we would get married...." ----Kyra

She's a funny bunny, but this one takes the cake....

Kyra was in San Antonio all day with a friend, so I took just Maeve with me to the gym this afternoon. I love having just Maeve in the car because she notices so much when she's not sitting there bickering with Kyra.

I notice some Army vehicles in front of us. She's in the back and there's no way she can see them. But as luck would have it, we exited off of the interstate and they were now on the left of us.

She points and starts hollering, "Sloppy joes! Sloppy joes!"


I ask her what the heck she's talking about.

Again, she yells, "Sloppy joes! You know the guys in those vehicles....they're sloppy joes!"

Um, no Maeve.

I think she meant to say, "G.I. Joe" lmao!

Funniest.thing.ever. Love.her.

Maeve's PINK room....

Things that only Maeve would say.....

Yesterday, Bri, Kyra, Maeve and I were sitting and eating at Subway. Maeve sees a man sitting and eating alone. He has on one of those flourescent vests.

Maeve: "That man is eating all by himself."

Me: "I know."

Maeve: "And he works at Walmart."

Me: "No Maeve, I think that particular vest means that he's a construction worker."



Then today, we are in Hobby Lobby and all had to use the restroom. Maeve comes in the stall with me. To my horror, she says, "Hey mommy, how come when you wipe sometimes there's red stuff, but right now there's not any?"


Luckily, there was nobody else in there at the time.

That kid.
