How is raising the family going so far, mom?

Davin was being fussier than normal today, and I guess it was bugging Danae. She said, "Hey, Mama, can you turn him down?"

The contractor working on our bathroom happens to be a very good-looking guy. Just 5 minutes ago, he was in the kitchen getting some cold water to drink. After he left, my 6 year-old daughter said, "mom, I was hoping you would tell him how fashionable I was." I asked her, "do you think he's cute?" and she got all coy, smiled, and said yes. LOL!!!!! No wonder she's always right behind me when he's talking to me.

I'm fuzzy, what can I say. I don't have hairless arms or anything. My nephew touches my back a week ago (I had on a sarong) and says, "You're hairy. Like a man. You're like a big hairy man."

And skipped/ran away into the den. I laughed so hard I wasn't even mad. He has no filter on his mouth.

The radio station I listen to at work was having a pledge drive for the Aflac Cancer at Children's Healthcare of Atlanta the other day. The talkshow host was broadcasting live from there, so there were lots of sick kids and their parents milling around.
Host to 4-year-old boy: Do you have a dog?
Boy: Yeth, sir (very shyly)
Host: What kind of dog is it?
Boy: A laboratory (gales of laughter in the background)
Host: What kind of laboratory is it?
Boy: A yewoh laboratory (very proudly)
So cute!

Bryan made a delicious southwestern chicken salad for dinner tonight. Danae was eating all her veggies, but wouldn't touch her meat. My husband said, "Try some chicken; it's really good!" Danae said, "Ew! I can't eat that; it's a chicken's body!"

Some of J's over the past few months:

Me to J after a birthday party at which he acted up like crazy: So, J, were you a good boy or a bad boy today? (yeah, I know that was a value judgment on my part - I was frustrated)

J: (thinks) A HAPPY boy!

Another time he said:

Mama, I need a rocket to go up up up to the sky to see why the moon is so tiny.

Me: J, what do you want to be when you grow up?

J: A SUPER-HERO!

Police siren is heard on our street

J: Mama, the police are coming to catch you and hit you and kick you but I'll save you!

In the car

J: Mama, I want to drive the car!

Me: You can't yet, sweetie pie. You have to be a grown-up to drive a car.

J: I'll eat lots of food and get big like a tree and then can I drive the car?

A lot of the men that work for me live in the town we work in. So the other day I was talking to a customer at her home and a little girl ran up to me.

Her: do you know so-and-so??

Me: I do. Do you know so-andso?

Her: That's my Dad.

Me: Oh, wow! Really? Well, you can tell your Dad you met his boss today.

Her: You're his boss! My Dad's boss is a girl!!!

Her (to her mother): Mom! Dad's boss, at work, is a girl.

Mom: His boss at home is a girl.

She came up to me later and said "I like that. I like that my Dad's boss is a girl."

I never laughed so hard.
Danae told me a little boy in her class is "so in love with me!" I asked her what she thought being in love meant, and she replied, "Love is hugs, kisses, and doing chores together."

My sister just told me about this conversation she had with her 4 year old daughter:

B: Mom, I think I need to start wearing a bra
J: No, not yet honey
B: Yes mom I really think I do, I need to wear a bra.

Cracked me up when she told me.

I notice my 6 year old is shoving a pair of her socks she had left out under the entertainment center.


Me: Don't shove your socks under there!
G: I was just stretching.

Me: LOL!

"I will never be the woman with perfect hair, who can wear white and not spill on it."

BK's doctor asked her what foods she likes to eat for breakfast.
BK: "Crunchy bacon, applesauce, cheerios and milk."

She got a shot, and afterward told the nurse "I just LOVE shots!"

My nephew's teacher told my sister that while he is generally well behaved, he's also very social and inquisitive to the point that he interrupts the teacher constantly to ask questions and likes to talk to his classmates about what the teacher is saying, while she's still talking. My sister talked to him in the car about it, telling him he should listen while his teacher is talking and not interrupt or talk to his friends. And she told him that when she asked his teacher next time she didn't want to hear that he was still doing that.

His response?

"Well then don't ask her anything."

I was watching The Good Wife today while Danae was playing. One of the characters said someone went to the bathroom to do coke. Danae looked up and said, "Well, that's just weird. Nobody cooks in the bathroom!"

BK watched Forrest Gump with me a few days ago, and proceeded to run around in circles yelling, "I'm Forrest from the TV!" She also told me "mommy, this is a GREAT movie."

Fast forward to this morning, she said "that Forrest "cump" movie is so great. He runs so fast. Those boys are not nice. They throw rocks and he runs away. They should say sorry! That little girl Jenny is so nice, but her dad is not nice."

Ha, I got a synopsis from my three year old!

We've had some bees somehow getting in the house & clustering at the very top of the great room window.
The little one asked me about them & I said that it looked like they were having a meeting.
Hubby comes home & the little one proceeds to tell him...daddy, how can we kill the bees when they are always having a meeting?!
When my neice was 3 or 4 she was riding with me out in the country, and we passed a pasture with about a dozen horses standing in a circle - there must've been a salt lick, feed trough or something there from the way they were standing, but I couldn't see it.

I didn't think she was paying them any mind, but about that time Kendall piped up "Look, Auntnett, those horsies are having a meeting!".

It's amazing how observant they can be.

This afternoon Lilly took a really long nap, so I decided to wake her up an hour and a half after she typically wakes up. She put her finger on my lips and told me to "shhhhh" and then pulled the blanket over her head. It's getting really hard to keep a straight face when she does stuff.
