Funny Kid Quotes

I have many Lexi quotes, but not much from Kenny (yet). Here are a few recently ones:

1. "I want too much." (Telling me he wants more Season Salt on his potatoes :) )

2. "I *pause to think* will not!" (when told he can't do whatever because he will do something naughty)

3. "I want a boyfriend and a girlfriend." (Lexi was talking about how she has friends that are boys and girls.)

Lexi has given us some great quotes from the sleeptalking she occasionally does. I love the entertainment sleeptalking provides, that's for sure!

1. "I want to float on the pretend Jellyfish!" (Don't ask, I have no idea.)

2. "Some more FOOOOD!" (I feed her, I promise! . .)

3. "I want another Graham cracker." (I really do!)

4. "No, it's mine!!! Mine!" (Sharing? What's that?)

:) Funny kids.

Honey Bear

Tonight as I was making french toast with Barrett in the sling, I opened the honey, not expecting the seal to already be off. So I opened it with more force than necessary and spilled some on the stove and on Barrets head! As soon as the spilled landed on his head, he turned and looked at me with open mouthed surprise. But the best part? His chin quivered! *chuckle* It completed the funny, precious and sweet moment. I didn't mind licking the honey off him either. :)

In other news, Barrett just started crawling on Mother's Day, pulled up to a standing position for the first time yesterday and his second tooth came in today! So much is happening with my little Bear lately. It is really exciting and fun.

An Oldie, but a Goodie!

Happy Mother's Day!

I am so happy I chose to be a Mother. :)

And, keeping with the theme, here is an old, but good(!) poem I wrote and posted on the blog almost 3 years ago about Motherhood. I like it quite a lot and I hope you do to. It is a little odd. Just remember there are two voices. To see the original posting, click here.

Who Likes It?

Who likes cleaning up messes?

Not me.


. . .

Who like doing dishes?

Not me!

oh, . . .

. . .

Who likes enforcing discipline?

Not ME!

oh . . .

hmm . . .
. . . . . . . . . . .

Who likes sweet snuggles?

I do


Who likes playing and puzzles?

I do!


Who likes hugs and kisses and Dandelion wishes and

smiles just because you came in the room?

I do!!


Who loves being a Mother?

We do.

Oh yeah . . .


And to finish off, a quote or two that I love about Motherhood.

I've got more children than I can rightly take care of, but I ain't got more than I can love.

~Ossie Guffy

I looked on child rearing not only as a work of love and duty but as a profession that was fully as interesting and challenging as any honorable profession in the world and one that demanded the best that I could bring to it.

~Rose Kennedy

P.S. I don't know why the spacing is so BIG, but I don't know how to make it have normal spacing. If anybody know how to correct this problem, please let me know!!!
