day-to-day pregnancy

Kate, noticing a band-aid on my thumb: "I am TIRED of you hurting yourself, Mommy!".

Conversation with Kate at the dinner table:
Me: If you're finished with dinner, let's go upstairs and take a bath.
Kate: Mommy, why don't we have bird baths?
Me: Because we are not birds.
Kate: No, Mommy! A bird bath in the yard.
Me: I don't know. We don't have that many birds.
Kate: We should give them washcloths.
Me: What?
Kate: We should take washcloths outside, so the birds can pick them up and wash themselves.
Jeff: But then they will take our washcloths. Would they give them back?
Kate: Yes, after they are done.
Jeff: How long would that take?
Kate: Four and a half minutes.
