Best Day Ever

Today was one of my favorite days of being a parent since I started.  These kids could not stop saying hilarious things.  B has started to laugh whenever anyone else laughs.  I want to laugh all day.  
 We were at the playground, and I showed Jared how I could get across a bridge in two steps.  His response: "I wish I was you!"
 Last night, Eloise had one of her infamous midnight tantrums.  Instead of just screaming to be left alone, she kept saying, "Hey now! Get outta here! Hey! Hey now! Hey now! Leave my room!"
 After breakfast this morning, Eloise helped me load the dishwasher.  When we were done, I closed it.  "You forgot to add the sugar!" Dishwasher detergent. . . sugar. . .
 And then there was this:
Eloise fell asleep outside the bathroom with her pants down during quiet time.  I don't know how this happened.  I was sitting on the couch ten feet away.  Jared came thundering out of his room after quiet time and offhandedly informed me that Eloise was lying on the floor with her pants down, but he wasn't sure if she was asleep.  Based on his description, this is not what I was expecting to find.  I'm not sure how she managed to sleep through him stepping over her on his way out of his room.

This evening we had a play date with some boys, and I left for a few minutes to run an errand.  When I got back, Jared informed me that they were playing "war," and that they had to get ready so that the war didn't get them.  I asked him what a war is, and he said it is something that makes people want to fight each other.   I sort of love his description.  It makes me want to give him a hug.
