How is raising the family going so far, mom?

shellibean- your new name reminded me of a cute story.

Our son's name is Julian and sometimes I call him "Juju-bean." (Silly pet name). A little girl in his preschool class has a sister named Penelope.

He pointed her out and said "That's banilla. They call her 'bean' too."

I asked him what he meant...As it turned out he was hearing her name as "Vanilla Bean" instead of "Penelope."

One day I was B & moaning about it, as usual. She interrupts and says I know mom. Don't worry about me dropping out. I realized, I must have been rich in a previous life. I'm not meant for this poor girl life.

I laughed, but honestly, I don't care what her motivation for getting an education is as long as she's motivated.

I was shopping with my boyfriend's daughter, who was 6 at the time. She just HAD to go to the grocery store with me. It was football season, and my boyfriend had requested beer. M had the grocery list in her hand and was reading as I pushed the cart. Suddenly, she jumps out of the cart and says, "This kind, Sarah. My dad likes Buzz Light! I can get it!" I quickly told her no and was quite embarrassed. I must have had 10 people staring at me disapprovingly.
With all the constant chatter about Christmas toy lists and such, I had asked my kids to refrain from talking about presents until after Thanksgiving. My 4 year-old (not one to follow rules very well), began whispering to her big brother about what she's asking for. My son turns to her and says in an exasperated voice, "Catherine, stop whispering to me, you're getting carbon dioxide all over me!"

The little one comes up to me & says, my leg hurts.
I think I've got growing pains...
My youngest has had the misfortune of already experiencing a few headaches. He has the cutest way of saying what's wrong, that I didn't figure out at first. "Mommy, my head is squished!"
I was trying to give my daughter a snack the other day, and she kept turning up her nose at it. She was being a little booger, so I told her, "Don't be snooty." She looked at me like I was crazy and said, "What snooty? What you talkin' about?"

Still half asleep, he got mad about the conversation DH and I were having and told us: "Quiet time! You're making noise! You be quiet! I'm making music!" Us: "Your making music?" Korbie then replies by blowing us the biggest loudest rasberry I've ever heard, then "You be quiet! I need to practice." Then he rolls over on the couch.
My daughter helps me fold laundry and she looks at her dad's undies and says these are daddys panties. She thinks all underwear are panties.

I don't have kids but I've been a nanny and a teacher so I have had lots of cute kid moments.

These are some of my favorites from working as a toddler teacher:
Me: Will, what do you want to drink?
Will: All I need is some moo juice in my hand.

Gavin: I pooped. You need gloves!

Katie: You're pretty. Do you know Cinderella?

I could go on and on...

More recent ones--
We had chili for dinner, which my daughter doesn't like. My husband said:
"Eat your chili or go to time out."

"I'll go to time out." (gets up and goes to sit in the living room)

Yesterday we had Indian food, and my husbands order was Chicken Saag. He was urging her to eat it by putting the serving bowl in front of her face.

"Here, smell it. It's chicken."

DD: "I don't want it."

"It's good. Smell it."

DD: "Get it out of my face!"

I went to the children's Christmas play at my church Sunday night. At the end, they brought out a birthday cake for Jesus. One of the little boys asked, "How old is he?" It was pretty darn cute.

Okay, I've got 2:

Daugther #1 lets out a big old burp, something not usually heard from a little girl; daughter #2 says,
"Good one, Madaline." I am sooo proud!

I have a very old naturallycurly.com sweatshirt. Daughter #2, who oddly enough looks just like the logo, points to it and says, "Mom, that's scarey looking."
LOL@ ruralcurls...my daughter laughs at burps, too.

My anniversary was this past weekend and DH bought me some roses. Danae really likes flowers, so I gave her one. She started running around saying, "I married!" I asked her, "Who did you marry?" She replied, "Mama and Daddo. For keeps!"

This morning, as I was bending over organizing some laundry, my 4 year-old tried to get around me and said, "mom, move your butt out of the way." I responded, "is that any way to speak to your mother?" She said, "mom, move your butt out of the way, please."
LOL! At least she said please...

Danae has taken to pulling up my shirt and asking, "Baby in there?" Now, I know I gained some weight over the holidays, but not that much!

Hey, I'm ready for her to have one, too. If only I could get my ovaries to cooperate...
