K: I think I am not going to get married when I grow up. Because I don't want to get pregnant.

Me: Um... (deciding not to get into birth control just yet with the 5-year-old) That's okay, you don't have to do either.

K: Because I want to be a bear hunter. And when I am climbing mountains hunting bears, I might fall down and then my baby might die.

Me: Well, sometimes pregnant women fall down and the baby is okay. But yes, it is a risk. You know, sometimes when women get pregnant they keep working their job until it gets too uncomfortable and then they take a break for a while.

K: Yes, but I don't want to. I want to keep being a bear hunter.

About 10 minutes later, she told me that if she ever sees her best friend from preschool again, she is going to marry him, because she loves him. I decided not to ask about the bear hunting career.

Conversation with I had with K a few nights ago after brushing teeth:

K: When I grow up, I am going to change my name to K--- Lollipop. Okay?
Me: Okay, honey. It's your name. You can change it when you grow up.
K: And I am going to be a policewoman.
Me: ...A policewoman named K--- Lollipop?
K: Yes.

Conversation that K had with The Man at swim class*:

K: So, I am a baby monster in the dungeon. And you are the dungeon keeper, okay?
TM: Okay.
K: And, can it be 10 years later now? Because I am going to have a baby.
TM: Okay.
K: I married one of the salamanders. His name is George. We got married in that place -- what is that place where you get married?
TM: The chapel?
K: Yes, we got married in the chapel. On the hill.
TM: What are you talking about? The chapel is right net to the Dark Temple.
K: Oh yeah. I forgot. Anyway, we got married and I am going to have a baby. We had the sex and now I am going to have a baby. But not in here. Not until we get out of the changing room.

*: The kids are fascinated with the game Dungeonkeeper II, which explains at least the salamander part of it. Kind of.

"Mommy, I think I do not really have monsters. I've just been pretending, all my life!"

"Vampires don't drink that much blood. It's only a spoonful, and that's not enough to kill us. I know I'm right."

Me, reading Elfquest: "These elves hiding in the bushes look pretty scared, right? But what do these elves down here look like?"

K.: "They look ready to kick some ass."

The kids love wintergreen lifesavers, and Nick got one after dinner. Having
had it for a few minutes, he met up in the kitchen with The Man, where he showed that
it was still in your mouth.

"Wow! You've still got that, huh?" The Man asked.
"Yep. Because I don't chew on it. I only suck on it," he declared.
"Oh. Well, that's cool."

With absolute seriousness, he then declared "I let it dissolve in spit,
until it's all gone. Because that's the way I roll."

Kira recently gave The Man a long explanation of the different monsters she has, all in one sentence:

"I have my lava monsters, and my lava monsters sleep in my bones, and when they do that, they don't have their fire going because I use my magic to keep their fire from burning me up, but when they come out, then I let my magic turn their fire back on, and when they come out of me I use my magic to make sure they don't burn me and then basically I use my magic to make sure they set fire to only the things they're supposed to set fire to, so they don't set fire to our house; but I think you're picking up what I am putting down."

Last night I put K. to bed. I saw that she had two sippy cups in her bed so I took the old one out with me, leaving her with her favorite (pink) one with fresh water and ice in it. About half a minute later I hear her wailing hysterically. I go back in and ask what is going on. She sobs, "You took away the green sippy cup, and that one had all my niceness in it!" I bring it back and give it to her and she says, "Oh, thank you! Now I have my niceness back!" And goes to sleep happily.

Wednesday night, I was giving the kids a bath. N. got upset about shampoo getting in his eye but then wouldn't let me wash it out. Then K. got upset about the possibility that shampoo might get in her eye. While she was crying and wiggling around over this, she apparently trespassed on N.'s side of the tub, so he tried to tell her to get off his side. But she couldn't hear him through her tears, so he started screaming because she wasn't listening to him. This all happened in less than 5 minutes. We pulled them out of the tub and sent them straight to bed; didn't seem to be anything else to do.
