"Get dressed honey!" I call out from my bedroom to the kids' rooms (intending the words more for the 4.5 yo than the 7yo).
"I am naked!!!" she cries, streaking into, then quickly out of my room.
"Yes, I see that... go get your clothes."
[Robot voice] "I cannot wear clothes.  I am a robot. I can only carry clothes."  She comes into my room mechanically, with her clothes in her hands. "Beep!  Beep! Boop!" She drops the clothes on my bed, still moving her hands up and down at the forearms like a robot.

Suddenly, her arms stop moving, she touches the middle of her chest and slumps down, making a "powering down" sound.

I tried to keep in the laughter to see how long she'd hold that pose, but I couldn't hold it back for more than a few seconds.

A friend told me this the other day. Her niece was interviewing her grandmother about what life was like when she was growing up. Upon being told that there was no TV and they only had a wireless (radio), her niece paused and said "but you still had your ipad, right?"

Well, you had the wireless to connect it to, right?  >:D

In the past week I've had to field questions about various matchups between animals, superheroes, and animals vs. superheroes.  Mostly from DS (3.5 yrs) and some from DD (7.5 yrs).
For example, who wins?
Shark vs Tiger
Shark vs Lion
Lion vs Tiger

Spiderman vs Superman
Spiderman vs Batman
Spiderman vs a shark

And so forth.  I blew both kids' minds when I told them that a lion-tiger hybrid exists, called a "liger." Ligers promptly became the winner of all matchups.

One of the children at the daycare as her mommy came to pick her up, and she was ready to leave:

Child: *impatiently* Come *on*!

Mom and I share an amused look.

Mom: Okay then.

I present: my son, 5 year old Budgie, versus the telemarketer.
Phone: *ring ring*

Budgie: "Hello, Budgie speaking."

Telemarketer, inaudible to me: "...."

Budgie: "No."
Budgie: "No! This is a house, not a shop!"
Budgie: "No you may not speak to my mother! She is busy!"*
Budgie: "GOOD BYE."

Disgusted Budgie, to me: "That was so silly! She wanted to buy solar petals! There is no such thing! SO silly!"

He is now in charge of answering the phone, because I am SO DARN SICK of the solar panel telemarketers that have been infesting our area of late. :)
* I was indeed busy, stickytaping yards of paper and cardboard and an empty Milo tin together to make a Hot Wheels track for him. No way was he handing the phone over.

I have an 8 year old nephew, Wade, who stays with me a lot. The other day, I heard him threatening one of his toys, that if they fought, he would beat him like "Donkey Kong." He loves the Walking Dead as much as I do, and always wants to pretend that one of us is a zombie and the other is fighting the zombie, and I tell him that it is on like Donkey Kong. I also told him that kids have to respect their elders and should never talk back to their parents. I about died laughing the other night when he informed my 12 year old sister, his aunt, when she was being a smart-alec (jokingly, Mom was laughing) to our mother, "you gotta respect your olders, Ella. You can't talk back to my nana. She is your older. Ella, you gotta respect your olders!"

So funny! Little monkey is listening to us more than we realize!

Another Budgie moment; he's in fine form. He's discovered that insulting people is fun (THIS WILL END) but he hasn't quite cottoned on to what an insult actually is (ALAS, THIS TOO WILL END). I've been called "Mother Poo-Bum", "Mother Alarm Clock", "you grown-up party pooper" (I'm your mother! It's my job description!) and all sorts of other names, none of which actually insult. The biggest challenge has been keeping our faces straight while we tell him not to do it.
And, then, the other night at dinner, he lost his temper with his father, for some reason, and we had this:
Budgie, spluttering with rage, :" You... you... you Grand Final!!!!!!"

Princess Parrot, age 9: "Grand Final?!

Me, to King Parrot: "I always did think you were Premiership quality!"

King Parrot: ".... which Grand Final?"

Budgie was even more furious with us after that.

My niece had dolls named Crunchy and Flowerpot. We're still not sure where those names came from.

Edited to add:  have I already posted that? I can't remember and can't find it. If it's a double-post, please disregard.
