A Pair of Quotes

First, from the Pillowfight Fairy (age 5), from last Tuesday: as she was greeted by one of her teachers from church, who said, "Hello, [Fairy], how are you doing today?" she mystically responded:

I pronounce myself the Kiwi Princess.

Anyway, this particular teacher loves the odd things that come out of the Fairy's mouth. She liked this one so much she is apparently now using this as her tagline on her Facebook page.

(Incidentally, the Fairy knows about kiwis because a certain uncle introduced her to this youtube clip, which she and her sister both love. )


Second, from the Adrenaline Junkie (age not-quite-three), from earlier today: she was pretending to be a rabbit, as she and her sister have been greatly impressed by the stories in the Beatrix Potter DVD collection (Peter Rabbit, plus several other stories), which I blogged about a few days ago. The Fairy was pretending to be Tom Kitten. Mommy asked the Adrenaline Junkie which rabbit she was playing: Peter? Floppsy? Cousin Benjamin? No. She enthusiastically declared, in her cute little two-year-old voice:

I'm Killda Wabbit!

Who says that homeschoolers' kids are culturally deprived? ;-)
