Life with the kidlets

Some of the hilarity that comes with four small littles...

***  Sadie came home with a form for 4-H camp.  She handed me the form and said, "I think that I wanna go to this, but I'm just not sure yet."  I glanced at the form and handed it back with the advice, "If you aren't 100% sure than the best thing to do is to sleep on it."  Noah, horrified, exclaimed, "But if you sleep on it it will get all wrinkled up!"  (Thinking I literally meant to sleep on the actually piece of paper)

*** We celebrated Kamron's birthday last week.  Scarlett was so proud of this card she made him.  Most bizarre birthday compliment ever.



*** Noah:  Mom, When I grow up I wanna be a marine biologist.  But if I change my mind I want to own a restaurant.  At my restaurant people are going to be able to watch a play! That would be awesome!  People will love that!
Me:  They have those!  It's called dinner theatre.
Noah:  I gotta get one of those.

***Miles:Mom, I need to go to my friend Christian's house cause he said I could come.

Me: I don't know Christian's mom and dad, so it's not gonna happen. What is his mom's name? Maybe we could call them.

Miles: I don't know. It's probably Megan Terry.

Me: I doubt that's it. Do you know where he lives?

Miles: No, but you just need to take me there.

Me: Well, how will I know where to take you if you don't know where his house is?

Miles: Ugh. I'll just call the bus driver and get him to take me.


*** Scarlett does not understand sarcasm at all which is super unfortunate since it is my primary language.  One day when she was getting exceptionally rowdy I looked her way and I said, "Hey.  You better slow your roll."  I saw her try to work through this. She then moved her body a little slow and robot like and looked so confused.  She said, "But I'm not rolling anything."

*** I took my boys to Toys R Us for the first time in their poor, depraved lives.  They will never be the same.  Minds. Blown.

*** Our kids don't sleep with us.  I'm not sure they even know this is a thing that some other kids do.  The other night, though, Miles came racing down the stairs and jumped right on top of me in bed in the middle of the night.  "I'm scared!  I'm scared!  I'm soooooo scared! I'm just gonna sleep right here."

I asked him why he was scared and he said, "Well, I'm pretty sure I'm getting ready to have a bad dream about a bear."  In my sleepy frame of mind I said, "Wait a minute.  You haven't had that dream yet, you just think you are going to dream about it?"

"Yes!" he said, "I just feel it coming on. I better sleep right here just in case."

*** I think my muscle has gotten bigger since I came to this family because you let me eat more candy. (nice try, honey)

*** Sadie and I were trying to come up with a new book series for her to start.  I said, "You know, I wished you liked the Little House books.  Those were some of my favorites."  "Yeah," she said, "I just can't get into them.  Maybe if they were set in modern times, I'd like them."  Then the point of the books would be???

*** You know you've seen Frozen one too many times when your kid picks up the guinea pig and the first words out of his mouth are "Hey Phil, do you wanna build a snowman?"
