Funny Things

Joel ate two stuffed shells at dinner last night. Elias also ate two whole stuffed shells! This little guys gonna eat us out of house and home :)

Cosette: Mommy, who are my parents? Are Mima Rhoda and Pappy Dale my parents?
Mommy: No, Cosette, they are your grandparents. Me and Daddy are your parents.
Cosette: Oh, then who are my grandsons? Lisa and Tori?
Mommy: (chuckling to herself) No, Cosette, you don't have any grandsons. Lisa and Tori are your Aunt and cousin.
Cosette: (Looking a little confused) Oh. (Why in the world did she think she had grandsons??!)

The sermon had just started this morning. I hear a little voice saying, rather frantically "Mommy, have to use the potty!" So, we went back and used the potty, washed our hands, got a treat, etc, and sat back down. I kid you not, 30 seconds later, "Mommy, I have to use the potty...." And she wasn't just kidding, either! As we got back to our seats again, she announces pretty loudly, for the whole quiet church to hear: "Daddy, I had to use the potty again!"

Eli knows how to say please by rubbing his belly(baby sign language). Now, if he wants a banana, he goes over to the counter, points, says 'Ugh, ugh!', and rubs his belly. But, if he's really hungry, he beats on his belly instead, like tarzan :)

Cosette has been reading a book lately about a little pig who is very active and wears her poor Mama out. At the end of the book, the Mama gives the little pig a hug and says "Olivia, I love you very much anyway!" So, Cosette has taken to giving me hugs and saying "Mama, I love you anyway! " **smile** (Hey, it's the thought that counts, right??)

I love kids like that in church

I guess if we grown-ups just said more often, what we really think, we'd be just as funny...

Hi - visiting via Helen's site. Too cute! I'm a stay-at-home piano playing mom too who loves to read stories to her kids. And about the potty thing? I hear you Momma. The best times are when they're strapped into a car-seat on a major highway. At least I have boys who can walk down into the weeds on the side of the road... in fact I'm submitting a story to a publication about that soon. LOL!

Also, as for family association confusion, my five-year-old gets it somewhat, but he still says with love in his voice, "Mommy, you're my neice." (I guess he hears me talk lovingly to my sister's daughters?)

Hope to be back to visit some more. Blessings today!

Your kiddies are so precious! Along the same line, I gasped with pleasure as I clicked on your blog and saw the stunning picture on your header!! Adorable.

Ok, I just love the stories! Don't kids just say the darndest things? Your kiddos are just adorable!

Side note: My uncle's wife and 18-month-old daughter were just visiting and Devyn picked up some sign-language signs while they were here. Yet, she never learned them while I was trying to teach her. Go figure!!

Girl, you need to start a blog just for the funny things your kids say! It's a daily occurence, isn't it? :)

My boys used to beat on their bellies too, for "please"! It's a desperate motion!
