Chex Mix

[ Laura had just made a large bag of Chex Mix (with M&Ms, honey roasted peanuts, dried fruit, and other yummy goodies) for a cross-country car trip with my parents and my sister's family.]

Laura: "Do you think that's too much Chex Mix?"
Jack: "I could finish that in 2 days."
Laura: "You have to share this among three cars."
Jack: "Or you could make three of those bags."
Laura [crunching slowly on some Chex Mix and glaring at me]: "Pretend you're the Chex Mix."

No snacks for Jack

Jack: "I have council tonight."
Laura: "Good, bring me home a snack."
Jack: "We don't have snacks tonight. That's only on the first council meeting each month."
Laura: "No snacks? Poor Jack. And they still expect you to show up?"

Ring around the rosie, Laura's version

[Early one morning when Laura was still groggy and the kids wanted to play "Ring around the rosie" in the kitchen, Laura obliged with her own version of the song.]

Laura: "Ring around the rosie,
Pocket full of posie,
Ashes, ashes,
Everybody but me fall down."

[Both kids fell down still holding onto Laura and pulling her down with them.]
