What Is Making Me Smile Today

Allie (talking to Olivia):  Look at you, cutie!  And you're sooooo fat!
Me:  Allie, honey, maybe we shouldn't call Olivia fat.
Allie:  Oh, ok.  So we can just call her fatty then, right?
Zach:  Mom, when I grow up I'm going to be a super hero!
Me:  I know, Zach.  Either that or a Daddy, right?
Zach:  Yep.  But, the reason I want to be a super hero is because then I can fly up to the clouds and meet Jesus!

During church on Easter Sunday, the pastor praying said something to the effect of "Thank you, Lord, for your presence here with us..."
Zach's response, in a very loud whisper:  MOM!  Did he say presents?  I don't see the presents.  Where are the presents?  I didn't know we got presents for Easter!
Allie:  Mom...I'm not sure I want to be a mom any more when I grow up. 
Me:  Really, Allie?  Why is that?
Allie:  Because you have to do a lot of work...like make all our food and clean the house and do laundry and take care of all of us.  I think that would just make me too tired. 
Zach:  But I still want to be a Daddy!
Allie:  I don't think so Zach!  That is a lot of work too.  Because you have to go to work and then you'd have to come home and help your wife with lots of stuff too.
Zach:  But I could grill!
