From the Mouths of Babes

Mom and BoyIt’s been a pretty mild couple of days around here but I had to share this conversation.  Keep in mind that this morning, I have already “thrown away” Brighton’s tinker toys because he wouldn’t pick them up off the floor, vaccummed the house, yada yada yada and have done my best to *attempt* to get him to help clean up his things.  So after I finish tucking him into bed, I start picking up his rabbit stuff.

Here is the conversation:

“Good night buddy.  You want Feebee in here?”

“Yeah mom.  And Jerry too..”

“yep, and Jerry too.”

*picking up and rearranging totes so they look more organized*

“Mom, what are you doing?”

“I’m just picking up Jerry’s stuff so it looks better”


“Mom, you make my eye twitch.”



“You are making my eye twitch.”

“good night Brighton”

’nuff said.

    Kids say the darndest things!
    Jackie started a Luthern preschool this week and is now asking us to sing a prayer before and during all our meals together. It goes, “Thank you Jesus for bringing this food”. And you have to do it with your eyes closed and hands clasped together.
