So let's take a break from all of the… hardness, for lack of a better word, and have a little smile. My kids have been cracking me up today, and I thought I would share some our laughs with you…
Monkey: "Mommy, this cucumber tastes funny. Do I have to eat it?"
Me: "That's a potato."
Monkey: "Oh, OK then." (Eats said "cucumber")
In the backyard this afternoon
Lamb: "Mommy, GUESS WHAT! I just saw a REAL LIVE SQUIRREL!!!! Or maybe it was a skunk. I don't know. But I didn't smell anything."
Leaving a friend's house this evening (The kids stayed in the van while I ran in.)
Lamb: "What did you bring out with you?"
Me: "A birthday present that Miss Stacy got for me. Wasn't that nice?"
Lamb: "What is it?"
Me: "An angel."
Lamb: "Can I have it?"
Lamb (holding a mushroom from a piece of pizza): "This tastes like a lightning bug."
I don't even want to know why she knows how a lightning bug tastes.
Also at dinner
Me: "Monkey, please quit using your fingers and use your fork."
Monkey (looking all over the table): "Where is my fork?"
Me: "In your other hand."
Just a few minutes ago
Me: "I need a few minutes to myself, please."
Lamb: "Why? Are you going to pray about your attitude?"
Yes, they drive me to the brink of insanity and then bring me back with laughter.
