Wish Grandma never died...

As we were eating lunch today my 4 year old says he wishes Grandma never died. I tell him me too. Then he says "Mom when we die we come back alive in heaven, thats cool huh."   "I would hate being dead so I'm glad we come back alive..."   "Grandma is alive but not here...."   Yep Bry you are right!

Oh man why me?

We were at the store the other day waiting in line when my 4 year old looks at the lady in front of us and asks me ( in a very loud voice) " Mom do you like that ladies hair?"   I quietly tell him to hush and then he says "Man how did she get her hair so high, it looks like a tangled birds nest!"    Ummm what do you say to that....   I was so embarrassed, for one she heard him, two her hair looked exactly as he described it and three the people standing in back of us were laughing.   How do you teach a 4 year old to bite his tongue???

Who was that?

As we were down in the basement doing crafts my 4 year old suddenly says "Mom, someone is calling my name......(pause)   never mind it's just my mind."    Hehehe

You're nice.....kind of

My 4 year old brought a card to his friend who later brought him a card. My 4 year old says "Mom she is so nice, I'm lucky huh."   Then he says " Mom, brothers and sisters are not nice all the time huh." Then he adds "Moms and Dads are nice......well sort of, huh."      Hmmmm   :)

When I get a car...

We were in the car driving doing errands and the kids were talking about what they hope to get for their first cars. My 14 year old was talking about the car she's getting from her grandma and my 11 year old was talking about getting my hubbys old truck. Then my 4 year old pipes up and says "Mom I'd be happy with a Corvette."   Serious as ever too! Man keep on dreamin kid :)

Not a good idea

My hubby took our 4 year old with him to teach his class in church yesterday. (He teaches the 17 year olds)   They were talking about having good influences on them and about good friends. My hubby asked the kids if they had lots of good friends and our 4 year old speaks up and says "Dad you didn't have any friends when you were young...."  Which got the kids in the class laughing. Then my hubby was talking about using good language and our 4 year old says "Dad you say bad words when you're mad!"  The kids were rolling at this one. Lesson learned-Never bring our 4 year old to class cause he tells all your secrets! Hehehe

I can't hear....

Yesterday at Church my 4 year old and I were sitting in front of our neighbor who is in her 60's and is awesome. My 4 year old went and sat by her and saw something in her ear and asked her what it was. She told him it was a hearing aid. He asked her what it is for, and she told him so she can hear better. About 5 minutes later he came back up by me and said "Mom I can't hear." "I think I really need a hearing aid." Then he turns around and asks our neighbor "What store did you buy your hearing aid at, cause I really need to go buy one!" She started laughing and told him you get them from the Dr. and they are really expensive.   

 Well we get home and he won't stop talking about getting a hearing aid. So I made him a pretend one and he is thrilled. He wore it the rest of the day yesterday and put it back in this morning.    Man I love my little 'old' man. lol!

Me too!

My 14 year old was dying my hair yesterday and my 4 year old asks us what we're doing. I tell him I'm making sure to cover any grey hairs I have ;)  and he says "Yeah I hate it when my hair gets grey too!"

Underwear anyone?

On our way to float the river my 4 year old says "Is anyone in here wearing any underwear?"    We all say no cause we're in our swimsuits and then he says "phew I thought I was the only one not wearing any!"     Good Times!

Applause please....

After Church yesterday my 4 year old came up to me and said "Mom I really was hoping people were going to clap for me after I gave my talk....but all they did was say Amen!"   He he he   love it!


We watched fireworks the other night. During the grand finale they started lighting a whole bunch of fireworks at once. My 4 year old said " Mom they are wasting all those fireworks....I can't enjoy each one of them when they go off all at the same time!"    

Hard Core Skater

My 4 year old looked so cute the other day. He was wearing his skater shoes, tony hawk shorts and his Volcolm shirt. He came up to me and said "Mom I'm a hard core skater."  Then he said "Mom do you know what hard core means?"   I asked him what. He said " Hard core means cool!"   Is he really only 4?    He makes me smile!

Worms love to swim

While we were fishing I asked my 4 year old to put the worm on my hook for me. He said "Mom you love worms to much to hurt them with your hook huh, Don't worry worms love going swimming with the fishies!"

Silly boy!

Here are the laws

We were eating and visiting over at my Brothers house the other day. I went downstairs and saw my nephew hit his sister then tell my 9 year old how mean girls are. My 9 year old tells my nephew "Here are the laws, #1 No hitting girls, even sisters count #2 Girls always go first...girls are lucky huh!"      Oh I love kids!

Baby's awake....

So this morning as I was blow drying my hair, my 9 year old came into the bathroom holding my
baby. I could tell he had just got woken up since his eyes were barely awake. I said to my 9 year old "Did you just wake him up and get him out of bed?" My 9 year old replied "Mom I just had to wake him up, I missed him so much during the night!"

 How do I get mad to that response? I don't. I instead tell him that he gets to babysit him all morning! Oh the joys of big brothers loving their baby brothers too much!

While I was out gardening this morning my 7 year old came out and said "Mom, I had the coolest dream, I can't wait to finish it tonight!"     Wow I didn't know we could Tivo our dreams and watch the rest later on! I would totally love that, since I always get woke up in the best part of the dream!

What kind of fruit?

Somebody in my family came into the kitchen holding a grapefruit and said "I'm going to eat this greatfruit, because it must be great and it's a fruit!"     I started to giggle and said "don't you mean grapefruit?"  And a certain person said "What I thought they were greatfruit, Are you sure they are called grapefruit?"     Yes I'm sure!     Then while they were eating it a few of my kiddos tried a piece and man the look on their faces were priceless, not to mention them spitting out the piece and getting chills!

I love grapefruit but I guess it's not for everyone!  :)

Thought I would share

I thought I 'd share this post from our family blog, it was back in Feb. It just is so funny!

Today as I drove around with Coleson and Bryton, Bryton talked nonstop. I think I answered about 50 questions, listened to lots of statements and laughed alot. Here are a few.

 "Mom don't eat the wrapper, it doesn't taste good."

"Mom sometimes cops run but not fast cause they eat too many dounuts huh."

"Mom girls don't fart huh...only boys do." (that one had me in tears laughing.)

 "Mom you know what your doing huh."

 "Mom we need to have lots more kids in our family huh."

"Moms are the bosses, not Dads huh."

 "Mom, you don't have a cookie huh, only I do, if you were a little boy you could have one huh."

 "Mom, Coleson was in your tummy huh, was I in your tummy or Dads?"

 "Mom girls can't stand to pee huh, they don't know how to aim like boys." (giggling again)

 "Mom my shoes are gangsta huh?" (obviosly from Tay...)

 "Mom, Kailee gets home first cause she runs the fastest huh." (her School gets out earlier than the other kids)

 "Mom santa needs to come live with us, then he can tell you when we are good or bad and if we really are sleeping huh."

The questions and statements were all so funny, I wish I could remember them all. He says things like this daily. He's such a silly kid.

Did you hear that?

My 9 year old came running into our room last night and told us he had heard someone whistling but when he looked around no one was by him. My 4 year old looked at him and said "Your just hearing things in your mind.....It happens to me all the time!"      he he he  Oh the joys!

Don't vandalize your temple

My 14 year old drew all over her legs over the weekend. My 7 year old came in gasped and said "You just vandalized your temple!!!"   Man my kids keep me laughing!

Does your brain make sounds?

I overheard my 4 year old this morning while he was playing dr say " I need to hear what my brain is saying" as he held the stethoscope to his head.   Lol! I wonder what he heard?

Bar of soap anyone.....

My kiddos love going to the skatepark. One problem though, the dang teenagers over there have such potty mouths. I told the teens to watch their language, which I'm sure they thought was hilarious. One kid in particular said a few choice words in front of us and I pounced on him and shoved a bar of soap in his mouth and made him say uncle.......well I should have! I pulled out the video camera and pretended to video tape them, and told my kids in a very loud voice "man these kids moms are sure going to be surprised to hear what their kids have been saying..."   Well lets just say the language cleaned up dramatically! He he he I'm so dang sneaky! :)

Popcorn tree?

Yesterday we were out on the deck eating some popcorn and one of my kids says, "I really want to plant a popcorn tree" he takes the kernels that are left in the bag and throws them over the deck onto the grass and says "plant yourselves my little seeds, plant yourselves."     Ummmm don't even know how to respond to that one! I'll just let him believe that 1. There are popcorn trees, 2. cooked kernels are seeds, 3. planting themselves will work!  wink wink.    Funny kid!

Who is your boss?

My hubby was telling my 4 year old to eat his veggies at lunch today. My 4 year old says "I don't want to eat them." My hubby says "well you have to at least take a bite of each one".
My 4 year old asks why and my hubby tells him because he said so and he's the boss.

Well my 4 year old thinks about it and says "well you didn't take any of the yellow vegetables (squash) so you didn't eat all your veggies."
My hubby says "I ate a bunch of different ones and that is good enough for the boss".

My 4 year old says "well Jesus is the boss of you and if he were at the table right now he'd make you eat some yellow vegetables so you know how gross they are and then you wouldn't make me eat them!" lol! I guess my hubby shouldn't make my 4 year old eat things that he doesn't even like!

Don't you wish you were a little boy....

My 4 year old had on some really cute Etnies. I told him "Man I love your shoes, I wish I had some like it."  My 4 year old looks at his shoes then at me and says "mom you wish you could have been a little boy when you were younger huh."     "Boys always have so much cooler stuff than little girl stuff huh."    Well I like his shoes but I am quite happy I am a girl! lol

Have you seen my mommy?

Man I'm still laughing at this one and it's been 2 hours!

So we were at a store looking around and 2 little boys come up to the cash register and ask the cashier if she has seen their mom. The cashier tells them she doesn't know who their mom is. One of the little boys spreads out both arms as far as he can and says "she's this fat and her name is Marie." The cashier tried to hold in the laughter as she calls over the intercom for her.

We were laughing so hard and felt bad for the mom who came up to the front since everyone who had saw what the boy did was staring at the mom.   Kids sure are funny!

Yesterday I had to run to a cell phone store to get some new phones. We ended up being there a looooong time. My 4 year old was really good. He walked around the store and watched everyone and I guess he was listening a lot too. There were a lot of people in there. When we got in the car to leave he said to me "Mom we call people strangers because they are really strange huh."    I just had to laugh....

A bit too clean

I guess I need to stop doing such a good job of cleaning! Within the last week two of my sons ran into my glass sliding door thinking it was open. It was pretty dang funny to watch but oh so sad for my munchkins.
Reminds me of the birds on the windex commercial.

The first time it happened my son was crying and looked at me and said "mom we really need to paint that door red so we can see it."  lol  I guess if I stop cleaning it the kids will see their dirty little fingerprints all over it and know that the door is closed....

We have a monster.....

We have a monster in our house, I've never seen him yet but I do know that he only likes to wear one shoe and loves to use my kids socks to make friends for himself. He makes lots of messes and I think his name is somebodyelsedidit.   I'm going to be keeping my eyes wide open for this monster. I was thinking if he's going to take one sock out of each pair  he mine as well use both so I don't have to search the house for the matching socks...

 I imagine his friends look a lot like this

My kids will soon end up looking like this when they go to school

Mother of 7 I guess

My 4 year old said to me today, "Mom when dad was in your tummy he was a baby, then he came out and grew bigger than you, thats funny huh mom."   Me-" Ummmmm Bry, Dad wasn't in my tummy. I'm dads wife not his mom."  Then Bry says " But dad sometimes calls you mom." Me- "Well yeah but he says that cause I'm the mom in the house."  Bry-"Hmmm Mom I know dad was in your tummy, you probally just forgot!"    Well I guess I have 7 kids instead of 6.......
