So we were grocery shopping this morning and everything was totally scattered. First I forgot to bring out my reusable bags until they'd already started bagging. (They didn't seem too mad.) Then about halfway through my check-out, I realized that my wallet was still in my glove compartment. CRAP! So Punk and I had to run back to the car and then run back to the store. But she was being pokey on the way back, saying she was "too tired to run." (Whatever kid, you're 3, you could run all day.) So of course I challenged her to a "race" and she promptly ran herself back to the store. When we got to the door, she jubilantly exclaimed, "I WIN! YOU LOSE!!"

I explained to her that it isn't friendly to say, "You lose," and that it could make someone feel sad, etc. blah blah.

So a few minutes later, she said, "I WIN! You..." paused a moment and said, "And you didn't!"

Haha that is a riot.

Zach and Izzy do that with eating ... it is "I am going to beat you" the whole way through a meal. Then who ever finishes first pronounces themselves the winner.

What's really funny is that we were at a birthday party yesterday and there was going to be a "race" (basically, let the preschoolers run from one end of a field to the other). Punk, who is still pretty behind in the gross motor department, was always, always last. And every time she finished, she would yell, "I WON THE RACE!!" She was so pleased with herself.

I guess they're just starting to "get" all that competitive stuff.

Here's Javi's semi-offensive quote of the day:

Sarah: We are going to share this oatmeal cookie.

Javi: Why?

Sarah: Because it's really big.

Javi: I don't want to share.

Sarah: Well, you have to. That's what people do when they love each other.

Javi: I don't want to love each other.

This reminds me very much of our current unfriendly problem. No explanation has reached him yet:
Bedtime. He only wants Wes. He says to me, "Go away, Mommy."
We explain that isn't nice and makes me feel sad.
"Go away, please, Mommy."
Polite AND unfriendly. Awesome.

Bleh - that was me, which may be obvious unless you know lots of people with husbands named Wes.

Of course I knew it was you. :)

I know the roles are reversed but I would love it if one day my kid said she didn't want me at bedtime. I am a little nervous about this "second kid" business.
