Heard in my back seat today...

The twins are founts of endless amusement.  And frustration.  Here are but three things I heard from them this morning, as they rode with me to and from Rachel's piano lesson.

1)  (Celtic Woman is playing in the background.)  David:  "But Kuh (his nickname for his twin), Chloe doesn't have a voice!"  That would be my 4-year-old son criticizing one of the women in the group.  Yeah.

2)  Keziah:  "Mom, do you know how to make pancakes?" (As we're passing our local IHOP.)
     Me:  "Sure, Keziah."
     Keziah:  "Then, will you make them for me?"
     Me:  "Not today."
     Keziah:  "Why not?  You don't ever leave the house and you don't go to work.  Why can't you make me pancakes?"

Ouch!

3)  (Sounds of twins rocking out in their car seats, a song they've been singing a lot which sounds to me like, I Want My Mama Back.) 
      Me:  "Rachel, what is that song they're singing back there?  They've been wanting me to sing it at bedtime."
      Rachel, cracking up:  "They're singing a song from Hannah Montana."
      Me:  "I know that, but it sounds so sad--I Want My Mama Back."
      Rachel:  "No, Mom, it's I Want My Mullet Back."
      Me:  "Oh."
      Twins in the background:  "I Want My Mullet Back!  I Want My Mullet Back!"

Great stories for a dreary morning! I always thought 4 was a great age-old enough to give you great material but young enough that they still do silly things.

Okay, I haven't tried it, but my mom said they are good. You can buy pancake mix in an aerosol can... I suspect it would be right next to whipped topping.

I would rather go to IHOP than eat pancakes at home. There isn't one close by, but when I lived in Washington, I would treat myself to Strawberry Blintzes every once in awhile.
