Since I don't have any kids, I have to be overly proud of my nieces. And I'm feeling a little homesick today and am tired of working on my paper.

Fortunately, they are aspiring Geeks, are smart beyond their years, and love Harry Potter, Star Wars, Princesses and being right all the time.

Rachel turned four at the end of July.
Miriam turned two in November.

Hope you enjoy the list.


Quotes come directly from my sister's facebook statuses that she updates daily.

Re: Proud Uncle of Aspiring Geeks
"Hey! You're supposed to be the dead man! You can't move or talk! You're not following the rules!"

"Rachel! Leave your sister alone! You're being too bossy—how can she play if she can't move or talk?"

"Not me wanna be a dead man."

"Well, Meme, you can be a dead girl..."

Right. This sounds like a wonderful game. Not.

Miriam: Voldemort! Voldemort! Voldemort!
Rachel: Don't say that!
Miriam: Voldemort! Voldemort! Voldemort!
Rachel: Please, stop saying that!
Miriam: Voldemort! Voldemort! Voldemort!
Rachel: Stop saying his name!
Miriam: Voldemort!
Rachel: Why can't you just say You-Know-Who?

Me: Okay, we'll read this story one more time and then we'll clean up the blocks.
Miriam: No! Is it Hogwarts! Don't clean up it!

Re: Proud Uncle of Aspiring Geeks
Rachel: I want to watch a movie.

Me: Sorry; not today. You have dishes to do, you just threw a big fit, and I don't know that we have time for that today. Come on, Miriam. It's nap time.

Miriam: I want to watch a movie.

Me: I already said no to that request.

Miriam: Ummm...I want to watch *two* movies...

Me: Nice try. Still nap time.

"Know what, Mom? James and the 'mazing, the 'mazing, the 'mazing...peach. That's a movie. And it has James and a peach and a spider and some scary aunts. But the spider's not scary. But the aunts are. You ever seen that move be'a'fore?" -Miriam

"Sing me a baby song and say 'I'm love you,'" Miriam requested when I went in to see why she hadn't fallen asleep for her nap yet.

Re: Proud Uncle of Aspiring Geeks
So, Andrew gave me a pink blanket for our anniversary—it's soft and warm and his theory is that it will keep my cold toes away from his warm ones at night (ha!).

After that we told the kids that we were going to have another baby.

"This is awesome!" Rachel exclaimed.

We beamed at her.

"Now we *both* have pink blankets!" she finished.

Sometimes she's a little slow at picking up what we're putting down...

Re: Proud Uncle of Aspiring Geeks
The girls are in the living room, in costume, with all the Christmas lights and music on. I walked into the room.

"A Christmas ball! A Christmas ball! Would you like to join us?" Rachel asked.

"What's a Christmas ball?" I asked.

"Ummmm...like a dance..." Miriam said.

Oh, like a dance. Perfect. I love it when my TWO-year-old has to clarify things for me...

Re: Proud Uncle of Aspiring Geeks
While waving her "magic wand," Rachel said,

"Miriam, close your eyes, suck your thumb, cut and die!"

"Excuse me, what was that last part?"

"Oh, the part about dying? Well, I'm just trying to make her fall asleep. I don't really want her to die, I just want her to pretend to go to sleep. Sometimes when you're asleep it looks like you're dead."

Uhhhhhh...new game!

Re: Proud Uncle of Aspiring Geeks
Miriam got her toy dolphin from the bathroom.

"Look, Mom! I found a whale!" she told me, excitedly. "Now Jesus has a whale!"

I was confused until she walked away singing.

"No whale! No whale! No whale! No whale! Born is the king..."

Re: Proud Uncle of Aspiring Geeks
Playing memory with Rachel.

R: I got six!
Me: Good—but how many pairs did you get?
R: I don't know.
Me: What's a pair?
R: A fruit.
Me: Also...it's another word for a match. So how many matches, or pairs, did you get?
R: Oh. Three.

Silly homophones.

Re: Proud Uncle of Aspiring Geeks
Colouring with Rachel:

R: Mom, you know what? The boys in my class don't really colour right.
Me: Well, sometimes boys...
R: Are a little bit scribbly?
Me: Well...yeah. But I was actually going to say that boys take a little longer to develop fine motor skills than girls do.
R: Oh.

*sounds of fighting and crying*
Me: What's going on?!
Rachel: Well! She was poking me!
Miriam: I was poking her *softly!*

Miriam: I'm Princess Leia.
Rachel: No, I'm Princess Leia!
Miriam: No, I'm Princess Leia!
Rachel: Fine. You can be the *other* Princess Leia. But I am the *ordinary* Princess Leia.

Miriam: Does Princess Leia have shoes?
Rachel: No! She has boots! She's too busy fighting to have shoes!

Miriam: Hee, hee! I found Darth Vader's ball!
Rachel: Darth Vader doesn't have a ball! He has a Death Star!

Re: Proud Uncle of Aspiring Geeks
After declaring "I'm going to beat you home," Rachel got distracted in the front yard which meant that Miriam beat her to the door and, once I'd unlocked that, into the house.

"Hee, hee! Ha, ha!" she said. "I'm beated you, Rachie!"

(She really said "hee hee" and "ha ha." Silly girl.)

Re: Proud Uncle of Aspiring Geeks
Rachel brought an empty kleenex box upstairs.

"Hey, Mom, maybe if Dad starts earning lots of money and we need a place to keep all the money we can put it in here!"

Hey, yeah!

"Or I can make it be a house for some of my toys."

Decisions, decisions...

Re: Proud Uncle of Aspiring Geeks
Rachel: I like school except for when my friends are mean. Like, when we play hot lava I made up a rule that I can't die if I step off. But then Luke pushed me off and said that I died and that was mean.
Miriam: Silly Luke.
Rachel: Ummm...have you ever even *seen* Luke?
Miriam: Yes.
Rachel: Well, if you have seen him then he would have pushed you. So did he push you?
Miriam: No.
Rachel: Then you haven't seen him.

Re: Proud Uncle of Aspiring Geeks
Grandpa: Two-year-olds don't suck their thumbs.
Miriam: Jesus sucks his thumb.

Good point, Grandpa. WWJD?

Miriam (chewing): Mom, I found a good, yummy thing on the floor.
Me: Oh, really? What is it?
Miriam: Something like a yummy candy, I think.

I hope so.

Re: Proud Uncle of Aspiring Geeks
We just took Rachel's braids out so her hair is all poofy.

"You look like 'Mione!" Miriam said.

"I do! I do!" said Rachel. "Will you braid my hair before Halloween so that I can be Hermione?"

Like...next year? Yeah. I can probably do that.

Miriam then said, "Mommy braid mine hair! Me be 'Mione, too!"

My kids are...nerds. :)

Re: Proud Uncle of Aspiring Geeks
We went to the Riverwoods to look at the Christmas lights and ran into the primary music chorister. He said hello to Rachel.

"And I have a kleenex," she said, showing him.

"Uh-oh! Do you have a runny nose?" he asked.

"Yeah," she said, "And I have diarrhea!"

Oh, children...

Last night I went into the girls' room to get Miriam up to go potty before I went to bed.

"Too tired-a-go potty!" she complained in a sleepy, feverish stupor. "Put me back-a-bed!"
