Things to Remember: Comedy Edition

Addison and Mackenzie are absolutely hilarious lately.  They say or do something amusing every single day, and try as I might, it's hard to keep up with all the stories I want to remember.

I have started a running list on my phone where I try to make note of funny sayings, etc. as they happen, but so many things still slip by before I record them.  If I stopped to dwell on this thought too long (I'm forgetting things they will only do ONCE...they are only little for such a short time!), I could easily get a bit sad.

Instead, I will record a sampling of some of my favorite funnies...guaranteed to make me smile every single time.

Awhile back, Addison was eating a bit more than normal for her.  Jeremy made a comment along the lines of  "You must have a hollow leg to store all that food. "  So, a few days later...

Addison, pushing back her plate at the dinner table:  "My leg hurts"
Me:  "What's wrong with your leg?  Did you fall?"
A:  "I ate too much."

 I have no idea where it comes from, but when someone knocks or rings our doorbell, the girls hit the floor, hiding their faces, and pretending to be asleep.  They are "hiding" from our visitor, waiting to be found.

The girls come through the kitchen at my mom's, holding hands and squinching their eyes shut and calling out, "Where are Addison and Mackenzie?  Anybody seen them?"...which is exactly what we say when they are "hiding."
My cousin Lindsey was coming to babysit one night and the girls were in serious "hiding" mode, laying face-down in the corner of the living room.  They were doing well, not making a peep, until Lindsey said she would have to find someone to go get ice cream with her since A & M weren't home.  Mackenzie scrambles up as quickly as she can, saying, "Where's my ice cream at?"

As I think I've mentioned, Addison has trouble pronouncing the letter "f" at the beginning of a word.  She makes a "p" sound instead, resulting in some of my favorite Addison sayings, such as "poot snacks" and "pip pops" (meaning "fruit snacks" and "flip flops", of course)Well, apparently, she also makes the "p" sound for any letter that just won't come out right.

We went out for breakfast Saturday morning, to a place that has a breakfast buffet, complete with a soft-serve ice cream machine (they have a lunch buffet later on, so the ice cream isn't just for breakfast).  I grabbed a few bites of candy corn from the selection of ice cream toppings and was sharing with the girls.  After we had eaten it all, Addison announced that she wanted some more candy corn....except she had trouble with that second word, so she substituted a "P"...meaning my child was loudly requesting candy p*rn in the middle of the restaurant!

Two of my favorite misunderstandings/mispronunciations lately:
Addison spent all afternoon last Wednesday asking her NiNi for a "lollipop from the refrigerator".  NiNi looked and looked, but couldn't find any kind of lollipop in there, so she gave them a regular sucker...but that didn't do the trick.  When I got home and they told me about it, I was confused, especially because we don't even use the term "lollipop".  After a few minutes of thought, it hit me.  I asked Addison, "Do you want a popsicle from the refrigerator?"  Yep, that was it!

Lindsey drinks Gatorade all the time, and occasionally she shares with the girls.  One day at our house, the girls surrounded her, saying, "I want some of your alligator."  We were quite confused, thinking they were playing some kind of new game, until it finally dawned...  Alligator=Gatorade.

The other day, I came out of the bathroom to find the girls waiting at the door. 
"Did you pee pee in the potty, Mommy?" Mackenzie asks.
When I affirm that I did, she cheers, "Yay!  You get a treat!"

I love these silly girls!
