Waiting on the Stars



Ricky : “Caesars Palace is hosting CinemaCon this week and they’re having a red carpet event tonight! Do you see any stars yet, Rainie?? Mom saw John Cena and Johnny Knoxville yesterday..”
Rainie : “I don’t see any yet… Wait. Am I just looking for stars named John or can they have any name??”
Ricky : “OMG! They can have any name!! If you see someone famous, yell!”
Rainie : “I don’t think yelling is very polite. If I see a famous person, I will roll my eyes to where they are and raise my right foot into the air and point at them with my big toe…”
Ricky : **facepalm**

Shopping in Vegas

Ricky : “Do you think any of these shops carry a satchel? I’m pretty sure I need a satchel to carry all my things…”
Me : “Do you mean a purse??”
Ricky : “NO!! Not a purse.. A satchel! Satchels are much cooler… Indiana Jones has one..”
Me : “Oh he does, does he?!”
Ricky : “Yes. He’s a dashing adventurer with a manly satchel!!

Moppet in the Spotlight

Moppet : “Excuse me? You don’t take a picture of me in FOREVER… Everything is my sister, RICKY, RICKY, RICKY!!! But NOW you want me to pose for you??!! Is it because I have a new body??!! Sure I can do all sorts of cool poses now but my joints are a little squeaky… Was my old body not good enough??! How come you gave me a new one??! I’m glad you did, but why?? Is it because I’m special??!! More specialer than Ricky, for once?!!”
Me : “Uhhhh… It’s because the body was super pale and you were the only one whose head matched….”
Moppet : “I should be mad, but I’m the one getting my picture taken, so whatever..”

Model Moppet

Moppet : “I’ve never been able to do much with my hands…. I’m not sure where they’re supposed to go??”
Me : “Just cross your arms, I guess..?”
Moppet : “Like this??”
Me : “It sort of looks like you’re holding a tiny creature…”
Moppet : “Let’s pretend I’ve caught a fairy and I’m trying not to squish it!”
Me : “Okay…”

No Genies in Our Genealogy



Ricky : “Mom is obsessed with Ancestry.com and making our family tree..”
Me : “It’s really interesting! So far I’ve found relatives from as far back as the late 16th century!”
Ricky : “I don’t know what that means but YOU sound excited sooooo… woot. Hey? Question? I don’t see me or Dallas on the family tree.. Are you adding us last because we’re the youngest?? I’m guessing you’ve gotta get all the old people on there first..??”
Me : “…uhhh… sure.. yeah.. I’m adding you and Dallas, our dog, last because you’re the youngest..”
Ricky : “I thought so. You can keep working.. I’m gonna go grab some candy for dinner..”
Me : “..okay..” **keeps typing & researching**

Ballooning Lilliputians

Ricky : “Uhhhhhmmmmm… Is that hot air balloon super tiny or very far away??!!”
Me : “It must be super tiny because it’s in front of those trees and they’re only about 20 feet away…”
Ricky : “Mom…. There’s people in the basket!!!”
Me : “That’s weird…”
Ricky : “WEIRD??!! We’re seeing tiny people flying a tiny hot air balloon and all you say is that’s weird??!!”
Me : “Well… I guess it’s not really weird because, of course, a hot air balloon would have to have people flying it… Right??”
Ricky : “OMG MOM.”
