Max and Maya have been spending A LOT of time pretending to be Diego and Alicia from the Go Diego Go!  series.
Max, running into the room,"Rescue Mom, me and Alicia need batteries!"
Pulling out the pretend batteries from behind my back, "Here you go."
"No Mom, we need real batteries!"
"Well, if you can pretend to be Diego and Alicia then you can pretend to have batteries"
Amazed look on his face, "OK!"grabbing the pretend batteries from my hand.

Score one for mom, I beat kid logic with their very own logic.

where are your people?

This afternoon as Max and Maya were getting out of the car Maya asked "Mom, where do the Max people come from".

I had to stop and think about what she was saying.  Maya got her name from the Mayan people in Guatemala.  She takes a lot of pride in knowing that about herself and if she hears anyone talking about Guatemala she will say"That is where the Maya people are from" or "That is where my people live".

It was actually a pretty good question.  The Maya people are from Guatemala so where are the Max people from.  I told her I just didn't know, then Max spoke up and said "The Maya people are from Guatemala, the Max people are from Texas".

Pretty clever kids.
