Kid Conversation

I was at Lowe's with Peach and The Frog and despite losing sight of The Frog many times while shopping, we all managed to end up at the check-out line together.  Being distracted by trying to decide if another line would move faster, I suddenly realized I didn't know where The Frog was.  I assumed he was probably looking at something nearby, but when he didn't show up after the transaction was  complete, I started getting nervous.  I started walking up and down the main aisle, looking down each one, trying to find him.  Nowhere!  By this time I'm convinced he's been kidnapped and I was trying to figure out how to break the news to Jay when a thought occurred to me to check the car.  Turns out, he was playing on the flat-bed carts people had abandoned in between the two sets of doors leading to the outside.

Me: The Frog!!!  You scared the heck out of me!!!
The Frog: (laughing) I scared the hiccups out of you?

When I got home from Lowe's, I proceeded to make use of the screws we just bought, and had the drill and bits and lots of other tools out.

Peach: I like these drill bits.
Me: (sensing she wanted to take them all out) Please just look at them, ok?
Peach: I wish I could get drill bits like these when I'm a mommy...
Me: (not giving in to the cuteness) You do, huh?
Peach: These drill bits are my favorite color...

now you see what I'm up against!!

How scary! Those moments are so terrifying but it's hard to get upset when they are so innocent about it and with a response like that. The drill bits story is so adorable.
