This ain't no house of straw

Addy built a house out of Mega Blocks this morning.  The following conversation ensued:

Addy: Nana, the house is ready!  You can be the Big Bad Wolf and I will be the 3 little pigs.

Miss C: Okay!  Little pig, little pig, let me come in!  Now you say, "Not by the hair on my chinny chin chin!"

Addy: Not by the hair on my chinny chin chin!

Miss C: Then I'll huff and I'll puff and I'll blow your house down!  [Miss C blows on the house].  Addy, you're supposed to knock down the house, remember?

Addy: Nuh-uh!  This is a house bricks!

More kid-isms

All separate occasions.  All pretty hilarious:

Nora: I want sammich!  And cheese!  And butter!
Nora (who has gone from having zero patience for books to an insatiable need to hear stories, or at least look at all the pictures): I want... moggers [monsters] book.  And dinos.  And monkeys.  And piats [pirates].  And egg.  And pincess [princess].  And George.  And...
Addy: Excuse me, Mom and Dad, but Sister and I need to have a private conversation over here, so please stay over there so we can have some privacy.
Addy: I would like some orange juice please.  Do we have all the ingredients to make that? [She specifically wanted orange flavored Kool-Aid.]
Addy (upon finding that the hamburger stew that I made for dinner had carrots, celery, mushrooms, and bell peppers, but not peas): Mom, why did you forget to put peas in the pot so they could cook?  Those are my favorite!
