Go to bed....

Me:  Heidi Go to Bed!

Heidi: But Mom, you don't know where I am?  Where am I? 
Me: You're in your room by the heater vent (I was in the kitchen washing some dishes)
talking into the vent. Now get in your bed!!
Heidi:  DARN IT!!  

I think she was quite surprised that without seeing her, I knew exactly where and and what she was doing.  Besides, I could hear her voice echoing through the heater ducts.

Random things I've overheard my kids say:

While in the dollar store this evening Ethan was picking out a treat.  He said to Thomas, " I'll share with everyone, except you."

Then a little later Thomas said this to Chris, " Dad, can I have all the pennies you get back?"  .....
After Chris paid for the stuff, he got back his change.  He split up the pennies and handed Thomas two, and then gave Ethan one.    Thomas held his hand open right by Ethan and said, "Here, Ethan, give it to me. Because I'm older"       (What a little weasel)
