Kenley: "I love you."
Me: "I love you too, but can you not come within three feet of me?"
Kenley: "But I only have one foot!"

Kenley: "I'm so hungry."
Aunty Debbie: "Hang on, I need coffee. I don't even know what's goin' on yet."
Kenley: "You don't know what's going on, cause you're not doing it right. My mom does it right."


Kenley: "Dad, what's an antique?"
Daddy: "It's something old, kinda like your dad."
Kenley: "And like Aunty Shannon?"

watchin' you.

Following a third request to put her jacket on...

Kenley: *jabs finger at her Elf on the Shelf* "You're bein' mean, and he's watchin' you!"


Kenley: "Mommy, I got a surprise for you!"
*I hold my hands out and Kenley pulls her hands out from behind her back, revealing a giant booger on her finger*
Me: "That's not a surprise, that's a booger."
Kenley: "Oh."
Me: "But thank you for bringing it to me."


After getting a talking to about being mean to her sister...

"If I didn't have ears, I'm not gonna listen to ANYTHING!"

pajama drawer.

Me: "Do any of the other kids in your class have an Elf on the Shelf?"
Kenley: "No. I wonder if he has a pajama drawer."
Me: "A pajama drawer?"
Kenley: "Yeah, because when the sun goes down, the moon comes up, and he puts his pajamas on and goes to bed."
