Me: Kenzie love, you need to wake up.
Me: Lovey, why are you in my bed again? Did you have another bad dream?
Kenzie: Yes, someone frew a coconut on my head and it hurt vewe badly. Did Daddy make my birfday cake?
Me: No, sweetie, it's Mason's birthday party today, not yours. Daddy made him a Dragon Ball Z ball cake. You want to see it?
Kenzie: NOOO! I want my Wonderwoman cake! Can I inbite Jack to my birfday party? Pwease? He has to be there. And Olivia. And Bren. And Odin. Who else is coming to my party tonight?
Me: Kenzie, honey, again, it is your brother's party tonight, not yours. Mason's, OK.
Kenzie: How old am I going to be on my birfday?
Me: Your birthday is September 26, remember. And you will be 4.
Kenzie: How old is Evan going to be on his birfday?
Me: Evan will be 5. And Mason will be 9 in a few days. But today is for Mason, not you.
Kenzie: Can I bring Jack to the party tonight? I need my friends at the birfday party, Mommy.
Me: No, lovey, you can't.....
Kenzie: Is Daddy making my Wonderwoman cake? And who is going to get the candles for my birfday cake? And bring the fire?
Me: What fire? Oh, who will light the candles? Well, Mommy or Daddy will light the candles for you because....
Kenzie: Are you going to make the imbitations? Jack needs an imbatation. And Bren. And Olivia. And Odin. And Nanna and Poppa. And Nanna and Poppa Great. And..
Me: Kenzie, can we just get through Mason's party tonight and then we will focus on yours, but Mommy cannot think about it right now, OK?
Kenzie: Are you going to love me forever? You won't get rid of your only daughter?
Me: Oh, honey, you know I'm going to love you forever and I would never get rid of you.
--------------For all you people thinking this has something to do with Mason, it doesn't. She's been doing this for a couple of months now. I have NO idea where it came from.-----------------
Kenzie: OK, so when can we get my party hats?
Me: Kenzie, listen to me, please. No look at me, I will give you huggies in a minute. It is Mason's party to...
Kenzie: What is that smell, Mommy?
Me: Mommy is making spaghetti sauce. Mason asked for it for his birthday dinner, remember. That is the tomatoes, garlic, and onions roasting.
Kenzie: I don't like onions or garwic or tomatoes. They are icky.
Me: I don't put them in your sauce, honey, just the grown-up sauce.
----------I am a liar. I roast the veggies, throw them in the food processor until they are pureed, then I thrown them in with the meat sauce. They have no idea, and always have a couple of helpings. Suckers!---------------------------------------------------------------------
Kenzie: I want hot dogs and macawoni and cheese for my birfday dinner. Can I have a chocowet cake and purple frosting?
Me: Honey, again, we are not discussing your birthday right now. But, your Wonderwoman cake will have red and yellow frosting just like the Wonderwoman symbol. OK, out of bed, lazybones. Hey, where are your panties? I know I put you to bed with panties on.
Kenzie: I don't know? I took them off.
Me: Well, where are they. They need to be in the dirty clothes so I can wash them.
Kenzie: I love you, Mommy. Can I have breakfast now. I want cake, please. Then I'll have cereal.
Me: The cake is for dessert. And so is the ice cream so don't ask. Go pick your cereal. But first, put some panties on, no one needs to see your stinky baby booty.
Kenzie: Can we send my imbatations today?
-----This is a very typical 5 minute conversation with Kenzie. It goes all over the place and always gets back to what is mostly on her mind. Like, today, is birthday parties. She could care less that today is Mason's, she just knows that hers is next in the chain. Tomorrow, she will remember that I said once we get past Mason's party, we'll start planning hers. She will bombard me with questions and people to add to her guest list until her party. -----------------
