Owen was playing hide and seek outside with our neighborhood boys and being his usual bossy self. I said "Owen...stop being so bossy! Your friends aren't going to want to play with you anymore if you keep yelling orders at them."

He said "But he isn't counting right" and I said "Maybe that's as high as he can count!" and Owen said "But that's not the right way. I'm the one who thought up this game."

I said " didn't make up hide and seek."

and, with his hands on his hips, he said in his most annoyed and challenging tone "Then who did?!"

Don't you just love how he thinks he is the master of the universe?!

I guess Hazel has heard us say "When I was a kid...." a few times. Now she thinks that she gets to tell stories about when she was a grown-up. She will say "Mom....a long time ago when me and Owen were grown-ups and you and Daddy were little kids....." and then she will make up some random story. So funny.

Also- here's a Mortified Mommy Moment involving Hazel. Those of you who know me and are aware of my paranoia about my man arms will get a kick out of this.

Hazel was rubbing my arm yesterday and said "Get all this Daddy hair off your arm!"
