miscommunication

Wanna pop in here and share a quick little exchange I had with the girls the other day. It's probably only funny to me, but so what. I like it :)

Me (and the end of a phone call): "hey bro? I gotta run! love you!"
Kate: me wanna run!
Me: what???
Kate: Me wanna go run too.
Me: You want to go on a what? a run??? what? OH! no....Mommy isn't going on a run"
Kate: ME WANT TO RUN!
Kate: Honey, I. am. not. running. anywhere. I was just telling Uncle Mike goodbye.
Sarah (walking in): You guys are going on a run?! I WANT TO GO TOO!

Me: ***thinking*** SERIOUSLY GIRLS, WHEN HAVE YOU EVER SEEN MOMMY RUN ANYWHERE!!!???

Me: yeah okay girls. no running right now. let's go to school, you can run there!
girls: OKAY MOMMY!

PHEW. close one. I was this close to taking a jog. And everyone knows...I own a car.

Um yeah, megan volunteered me to be her partner in that 5k she ran. I got a call from one of the coaches saying they needed some info from me. My first bit of 'info' was that "mamma don't run." So I totally hear you on the not running thing. The last time I think I RAN was to the back of target when the halloween stuff went on clearance.

Kate is talking? Isn't she still an infant??!? Why is she getting so big SO fast?!?!?

Kerry. Kate is THREE AND A HALF. the fact that she NEVER talks about herself in the first person is utterly frightening.

so yah, she talks, barely! LOL

ok--i thought that was funny. i love it when kids interpret things literally. like when things get hectic around here i always say i'm going to mexico. one day i was frazzled and carson just looks at me and says--i know, you're going to mexico. ha ha

RUN???? My idea of running is someone chasing me and i am in mortal danger--and who knows--if they were cute enough i just might let them catch me...I am with ya sista on that running thing....
but i have to agree that interpretation if toooo funny!
