Dear friends - I have been busy! Busy but at the same time lazy for me. At home I'm constantly working on something, but definitely too lazy to take a picture of it and to post a blog. What can I say - I'm pregnant & that's how I roll - at a much less productive pace :)
So instead...I thought I'd share some funny stories from my kids. You haven't heard a lot of these & I have TONS more. I just can't remember them. They are wrote in journals at home - thanks Mom!
(Before tumbling - Aubrie had a band aid to cover her stitches so Everett required one too!)
Aubrie's Greatest Sayings:
One day she thought my Mom was sick & she wanted to take Mom's temperature. So she said "Hey, Grandma, open up your butt!" She had no idea adults don't take rectal temperatures (at this point Everett was a baby & we still did his rectally - both kids have an ear thermometer now - thankfully!)
One day I told Aubrie her Dad was ridiculous - I can't remember what the situation was, but trust me he was. So she told him while I was out of the room "Daddy you are a dickless man". The ridiculous part is - he thought I really told her that! Talk about ridiculous and the perfect mispronunciation all in one!
When Aubrie was a newborn she was difficult to say the least. We wore her around in a sling often because she would stay calm in it and sleep. One day I took her from Jade to change her diaper & on her changing pad it looked like smeared blood came off the back of her head. I started freaking out thinking Jade whacked her head on something while he was slinging her around the house. Then I smelled her head & uh huh - he ate chocolate chip cookies above her head & one chocolate chip went into the sling & got mushed in her ultra thick black hair. Nice Daddy.
Aubrie is a animal Wikopedia & needs to know every detail about everything. One time she was having an argument with my Mom about the importance of seat belts. She was probably 2 1/2 or 3. Mom explained that it's illegal to not wear a seat belt. Aubrie couldn't get over it - she didn't understand how the seat belts were Eagles! Every time Mom said "No, it is Illegal" Aubrie would say "Eagles?!?"
Everett is just starting to say funny things - his moments are growing. Aubrie still has a good zinger about daily! I'm one of those Moms too that can't help but laugh so I have to turn my head or leave the room.
My kids are all about the animals - and "aminal" facts as Aubrie says. Just recently a flock of geese flew over at dusk while we were watching for bats - again Aubrie Aminal Wikopedia - and Everett pointed & said "Eagles!" Jade said no those are geese & he stubbornly argued - "NO, Eagles!" My kids apparently love some eagle talk.
Last week Everett snuck outside naked after his bath. We live in the middle of nowhere far from the road. So I found him by the front porch - pooping no less in the yard. I said Everett what are you doing, we poop on the potty. He goes "Sorry Ma, I gots the poops." Enough said - he was right.
