Twin Tales.....

* I asked Jalen the other day how many eggs he wanted for breakfast. His response? "Um....just 5."

* I asked the twins what they wanted for their upcoming birthday, and they replied, "Cake, French fries, candy, cheeseburgers and chicken nuggets." Can you tell what one of their favorite activities is?

* Jalen: "Mom, I have chicken legs and you have elephant legs." Thanks, buddy! I think it's time to get back on the diet....

* Jordan's prayer one day: "Please Jesus, to help me get better and not to cry and please shoot the tiger. Amen!" Not sure what that was about since he was perfectly happy all day.....

* Jalen scolded his eggs one day at breakfast: "Stop making a mess, eggies!"

* One morning, the twins decided to give me a back rub. Jalen started to get a little rough, and Jordan said, "Jalen, do you remember how Jesus died on the cross? Do you want mommy to die on the cross? Then don't be rough!" I assured them that I would most likely not die on a cross. However, I let them continue massaging me, and after I remained still for awhile with my eyes closed, they assumed I was dead and went merrily off to play. It's nice to know that they would get along fine without me! :-)

* While Jordan was making the bed, he yelled at Jalen for getting it all "sperkly." I think he meant "wrinkly."

* Sometimes when I'm getting ready in the mornings, especially if I'm dressing for church, Jalen will look at me and say, "Mommy, you're prettyful!" I think that's a mix of pretty and beautiful, and I think he needs his eyes checked, but hey! I'll take the compliment!

* We were driving down the highway one day when Jordan said, "Mommy, I really want to hit a deer!" thank you!!!

* We were driving through a city when Jordan noticed a peculiar smell. "What is that smell?" he asked. "It smells like a stinky stoplight!" When I asked what a stinky stoplight smells like, he replied, "Chicken nuggets." Oh, really? I'll take your word for it.
