What in the world?

A few nights ago I was making dinner and when I called Bennett to the table she asked me for some juice. Being the good Mom that I am, I poured her some orange juice.

The problem was that she didn't want orange juice. She wanted strawberry juice. I told her she was getting orange juice.

She burst into tears and said, "STOP CRITICIZING ME!"

Okay. Let's get beyond the fact that this made no sense whatsoever in the context of what was going on, but where in the world did she hear that phrase? It's not like it's bad. In fact, Rob and I are still laughing about it three days later. But we don't say that to each other.

Did Minnie have it out with Mickey in one episode and let him know how she truly felt? Because other than the that cartoon, I have no idea where she got that. On the playground at school? Who knows?

And at dinner last night this was all we heard. I am writing it in the stream of consciousness form that it was delivered.

Bennett: Ooohhhh, you had better watch out because the killer crabs are coming. They're going to get you, Mommy. Killer crabs are not nice. They eat horsies. You better behave, Will-men or killer crabs will get you. You a killer crab, Daddy?

I have no idea where this child came from. I just hope the killer crabs stop criticizing her.

I think she is just plain awesome! My kids have been running around for months saying, "I cheated you!!" and totally in the wrong context. I've even tried to explain to them what that means and tried to show them, but it's not working. Oh well!

They say the funniest things!! Noah says stuff that stops me in my tracks. I wish I could trace where he heard it.
