Oh My Quotable Friday: Life's good


Bryn and Jace asked to soak their feet in the kitchen sink yesterday while I was cleaning the kitchen.  I agreed but only if they promised “feet -- ONLY FEET!’”

They promised.

No more than ten seconds later I had two naked babes bathing in my kitchen sink.

Kids are so weird.  And unsanitary.

Jace called me ‘Kim’ all morning.  Kim, can I have a yogurt?  Kim, hold me.  Sissy, where’s Kim?  He’s got such a fun little personality.  He called me Kim a few days ago and we all laughed so now it has become his go to joke.

Well that and “gummy bears”.  Strange, right?

I’ll ask him a question.  Any question really.  Say like “Hey Jace. Where are your shoes?”  His response, “Gummy bears.”  Or “Jace, do you need to go potty?”  Again, “gummy bears.”   And then he and Brynlee laugh until their eyes water.  Because if it’s funny the first time, it’s sure to be funny the seven THOUSANDTH time.

We packed a lunch in hopes of picnicking at the park today, but it was so dang cold.  So instead we parked in front of the park, folded down the seats, laid out our picnic blanket and lunched – picnic style - in the back of the band.  White trash?  Absolutely.  But the kids thought it was as cool as Disneyland and I wasn’t about to tell them otherwise.

I love how easily pleased little kids are. They think the simplest things are the best. My kids are starting to out grow that. A picnic in the back of the van would probably just annoy them now. Sigh!

We totally had a picnic in the car this week because when we got to where we were going it was too dang cold and windy. But, like you said, just about anything thrills the little ones, which is what makes them so great. :)
