Getting your way

When I ask the girls during car-rides "Do you want to listen to music?" I can pretty much guarantee that Anya and Bree will give their usual responses to every question: "YeAAaaaah!" and "NOOoooooooo" respectively, and that a little three-year-old request will inevitably pop up from the very back seat: "I want Hootie and da Bwowingfish!"

I'm not a fan of Hootie, but I've heard "only wanna be wid yeeeoouuuuww" about three times per car ride for the last two months. I'm sure by the time this phase is over, added up, I will have been listening in relative agony for about a week of my life. Thanks a lot, Zach.

Even though I'm not sure why they each learned the exact opposite, I'm hoping the twins keep their all-purpose "yes" and "no" answers. It makes for an exciting Dora watching experience-

"Do YOU see the purple mongolian pygmie striped marmaset?"

And, I can see this working to my advantage. Just ask the appropriate twin for the desired answer.

"You guys want to finish all your dinner, Anya?"

"Do you want your face to freeze that way, Bree?"

"Hey, Anya- do you guys want to clean your room?"

"Bree, are you guys going to keep pestering each other?"

"Anya, do you think mommy is having a good hair day?"

"Do these pants make my rear look big, Bree?"

Oh, that reminds me. My cousin posted this and I thought it was hilareous.

How cute. Miles' answer to everything is to scream right now. that's how he expresses his excitement, anger, desire to have yet another cup of crushed ice that he will promptly spill, etc. Girls are truly verbal much sooner than boys.

Way too funny! i love how you can make it work for you.

Hard to have them never agree though. Good luck! And I guess too much Hootie could drive anyone nuts, so why am I trying to find that song on itunes now to listen to. just wondering.

Have a great day!

Ok that Snl mom jeans skit was FUNNY! Strange how they can make women who are in pretty good shape look like they have butts that are a two feet long and appear wider than they really are!!

I love the twin question funny!
