Since I posted last, we have had Father’s Day, church camp, and a day at the library. We have also started reading a new book (Grandpa’s Box by Starr Meade), and I have been searching for curriculum to use with the kids this fall. There have been a lot of posts that have been going through my mind, but I just haven’t taken the time to take them from my head to the computer screen. But, instead of writing about any of the above topics, today, I am going to do a short post on some laughable conversations that I have had with the kids over the past few weeks.
** The kids and I will play fast fact games while we are in the car. Here is a laughable conversation between Jaden and me during one of those games.
Me: What type of clouds are those Jaden?
Jaden: Umm..white ones!
Me: Jaden what type of tree is a Christmas tree?
Jaden: A pineapple one?
(She was trying to think of pine cone).
**Another funny moment in the kitchen:
Jaden: Chocolate is not really that good for you.
Me: It’s not?
Jaden: That’s why I only eat one piece a day.
**Jaden and James are always bringing me flowers that they have picked. Here is a laughable conversation that I had with Jaden yesterday.
Jaden: Mommy, look I picked you some pretty flowers. And, I even left the roots on them, so they won’t die.
Me: Oh, those are beautiful because those are the Marigolds Daddy planted! 🙂
Jaden: Well, I found them over near the woods.
** I always like to strike up conversations with James just to see what he will come up with. He is too cute not to talk to.
Me: What do you want to be when you grow up?
James: You have to be big to do that. I don’t want to be big like Daddy.
**One day last week when the older two and Daddy were at camp:
Me: What do you want to do tomorrow James?
James: Ummm…I want to have my birthday.
**And one from last night before going to sleep:
Me: I love you, Jamesy.
James: I’m James!
Me: I love you, James!
**Here is one more funny moment that happened on Father’s Day between Jacob and James as we were frantically trying to visit all of the grandpa’s.
Jacob: When I am sixteen, I will be a teenager.
James: And, I will be a Power Ranger.
(I am glad that Jacob has not realized that he will actually be a teenager when he is 13. Shhh…don’t tell him!)
Thank you Lord for these precious moments that I have had with my sweet blessings. They are so precious to me. Amen!
What are some cute things your kids have said to you lately?
