I was heading out to the pub on Friday for a leaving do for a coworker... I don't head out often (as proven by how my head felt yesterday morning)... anyway as all Moms know, getting ready to go out and being a parent is like juggling. I got home from work at 6, had to get kids/hubby fed, get showered and ready and was meant to be out in the pub for 7:30. So I got dinner started and kiddie walks into me and said "are you wearing THAT!?!?" at my hoody and jeans. Of course I responsed with yes just to annoy her, which results in the response of "you can't.. you have to look sexy to go to the pub and you just dont". Did my 5yo just say sexy??

I also joined the gym last Sunday, so after an hour long workout I get home to "why did you join the gym" and I explained to her that Mommy wants to be fitter, healthier and skinnier. Her response was "well you better go back because it didnt work".

~Hmmm business idea brewing~

Haha also when he was 4 I was babysitting him. I left the room for a few mins(2-3 at the most) to go print out my senior essay draft and I noticed a little bit after I left it got real quiet (bad news when it comes to the little ones) I came back and this is what I found. Apparently he thought the marker that smelled like blueberries(one of those scented permanent markers) that it must also taste like blueberries. It doesn't explain the blue all over his hands but I'm guessing I'll never know the true reason haha. My mom was such a good sport about it. Although it took a week or so to come off. I'm still shocked as to how fast he did that!

This weekend our oldest was showing the 3 year old pictures of weather from one of her school books before we all got up for the day.

Shane comes in our room carrying (or trying to, since blankie was with him) Jamie's book. He quietly walke to my side of the bed and looking VERY serious says, "Mommy, I need to tell you something."

I asked what it was. Shane opens the book very cautiously, and points to a picture of a tornadoe and says, " This is a toMatoe, they are very dangerous. Tomatoes spin and suck things up." He closed the book, turned around, and went back upstairs. I manged to hold it in until he got upstairs, but then hubby and I both almost wet the bed from laughing.

This morning I had to leave early, so hubby had to drop Shane off at daycare. He did not like this idea at all. His reason...Daddy's stinky (Hubby had ice cream last night, lol)

My sister called me yesterday. She's laughing her guts out. So... I asked her what happened. Here's the story:

My 6 yr old nephew (the same one from my previous post) was in the tub. So..his mom (my sister) enters the bathroom to check on him. Sure enough...he's sitting in the tub singing to himself while pulling on his 'ying-yang'.
She goes "Howie...why are you pulling on that?"
He goes " Mom.....I'm tired of it being short.....I want to make it longer."
My sister silently closes the door and heads to her bedroom because she couldn't contain herself.

When my triplets were 4yrs old I had one that went through the "why" phase.
Anyways...were taking a two week camping trip up north and after a week we had to run into nearby town fill up with food and gas and go back to our camping spot. During our trip down, Neshay was asking her dad a whole bunch of questions that started with "Why....why...why".
Anyways.... she had asked a question ( I forgot what the question was) and her dad's responce was " I don't know...Neshay."
THere was a pause....then she asked "Dad....why don't you know anything?"
I had to turn my head away....and giggle. Let the dad debate that one out.

My 5 year old is going through a "What do _______ eat?" phase. Everyday it's a new one, and some I really don't know.

Today an ad for voltoral came on the telly, which is a cream for muscle pain. The ad shows a dad lifting his child up in the air and they are both having what seems to be the best time of their lives. My daughter turned to me and said "we should get that for Daddy for Christmas so that he can lift me up like that!".

And on the school run one of the parents who helps in the reading group told me she told her that "my Mommy can do EVERYTHING". Go me! Hahaha

How about a cute instead of a funny? I snapped this pic last week on vacation and I just love her expression. She was sitting in the surf waiting for the waves to crash over her head.

"Wait for it....wait for it..."

This thread is delightfully funny. Hehe, I've got many stories about my brother from his younger years!

When he was first beginning to talk regularly he started to call everyone by their name with 'soccer' in-front of it. My Dad was 'soccer daddy', my mother was 'soccer Mommy', and a friend was 'soccer Teena,' et cetera. I had been going to a lot of kiddie soccer games at the time so we knew where he had gotten the word from but we hadn't the faintest idea of what he meant. It took weeks before we realized that he really meant Doctor, as in 'Doctor Daddy,' which was my Mom's nickname for my father at the time (he has a doctorate in Biology). It still makes me laugh!

When he was young (maybe three?) we once left him alone for a few minutes while he was finger painting. That was a lesson we learned the hard way! I was the first to come back into the room only to find that the floor, a chair, and the piano were all very thoroughly covered in blue finger paint! When asked, my brother explained that he thought the piano would look better if it was blue. Fortunately everything was laquered wood and easily cleaned with water, with the exception of the piano keys. They are wood with a sort of plastic/enamel covering on the outer surfaces, but when one is depressed you can see exposed wood on the sides of its neighbors. My brother had been very thorough and painted these untreated wooden areas as well. The blue paint remains there to this day! I play the piano so I see it constantly. It used to bother me but now it makes me smile.

He's still up to all sorts of shenanigans but they are of a more useful variety. As I was typing this he knocked on my door to tell me that he has made a pizza for dinner. Mmm mm
