All these are from the last few weeks. And this is just what I can remember off the top of my head!
V: Mom, you know when I was only this big (pointer and thumb less than an inch apart) in your belly.
V: Did I pop out of your mouth... or something like that?
M: Something like that.
Conversation quickly switched.
C: Why you put broccoli on the windows?
C: (pointing to the window clings on the kitchen windows) See right there! Broccoli!
M: Those are shamrocks honey.
I just walked in from getting my hair cut and colored.
C: Mommy, you soooo pretty!
M: Sigh - That's my boy!
Christian had only been awake for about five minutes when he comes to me holding a Bam Bam costume.
C: Mommy, put his on me.
M: You need to take off your jammies, throw away your diaper and go potty, then I will help you put that on.
He took off his jammies, threw away his diaper, went potty and returned.
C: What gonna hold my penis now?!?
M: How about some underwear!?!
C: OH! with a huge smile
M: What did you learn about in chapel today? (at preschool)
V: The same old thing.
M: What does that mean?
V: Jesus fed 5,000 men AGAIN! Just like he did on Sunday. (from Sunday School)
M: Did you say you already knew that lesson? (hoping she is the kind of polite child who just sat there and listened anyway)
V: Oh yeah I told him! He said since I am so smart I got to eat snack all by myself while the other kids listened to the story.
M: Really?! How did that make you feel?
Christian has recently gotten some new fireman galloshes. He was running around the living room with them and a fireman helmet in his jammies.
C: If there's a fire you can call 119 for me. Ok mommy?
M: Sounds like a plan buddy.
While bathing together last night:
M: It's a double wash night because tomorrow is Victoria's picture day.
Wash those wrists. Wash those ankles. Scrub those toes. etc.
C: I wash my penis. (standing up - all smiles)
He's slapping soap all around it.
M: Ok buddy it's clean.
V: No it's not! He forgot to wash his acorn!
V: Do you know what will be the best part about going to kindergarten?
M: There's so many good things. What will be the best?
V: Being with you all day.
