A Day in the Life

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…

At lunch
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?"

At dinner
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.

Since I just read your last post I am glad you put this funny, light hearted one in the mix. Thank you for sharing this part of your life with us. I can see how strong you are as a woman and a mom. I look forward to reading your posts, you are great at putting your thought and feelings down in writing.

Thanks for the laughs. Don't know what made me laugh before we had our kids.
