Quotes of the week

Betsy left to spend the night with her grandma and grandpa and Joseph kept kissing and hugging her as she tried to get into the car.

Joseph: Betsy don't leave me. Who will be my girlfriend?

Me: I'll be your girlfriend. Come and play with me.

Joseph: Mom, I need a girlfriend this size (holds up his hands to measure an imaginary Betsy). Your too big.

Joseph coming down the stairs this morning groggy, rubbing his eyes, and mumbling:

"What is wrong with the sun this morning? It is still night." (We just switched to daylight savings time)

"This place is a mess. I guess I'll have to clean it up today. " (Coming from the child who acts paralyzed when asked to pick anything up off the floor)

Betsy in her bedtime prayers:

"God help us to pick up our room every day just a little bit. Then soon it will be clean. Then mom won't think we are pigs in a pig pen."

Betsy's inconsolable cries are heard from downstairs. Something must be seriously wrong!

Mom: "Elizabeth, are you okay, what happened?"

Bets: (In whiniest voice possible) "Joseph hit me with a feather."

I'm so glad to have a forum to record my children's brilliant words:) Come to Mary's to read more or join in the fun!

Your kids crack me up. His girlfriend... my favorite! :)

My children ARE like pigs living in a pigpen, but I sure don't hear anyone praying about it!

Jen said...

The things kids say. I can't wait to spend the weekend with your kids :)
They make me laugh.
Have they mentioned to you lately that I am a turkey?

Monica said...

Yes, Jen. From what I understand our Thanksgiving turkey last year was named after you. How did I miss this important detail? they are hoping this year's turkey will be a Jenny, too. You got me.

Ami said...

A feather...I love it! We have small drama like that at our house, too.

Sniz said...

Oh my goodness, these are sooo precious! I loved them all, but the prayer about Mom not thinking they are pigs in pig pen was too sweet for words, mainly because I've said many things like that to my kids! Their perception is so different from ours!

Loved the comment about the feather. But they were all precious :)

Foxy5 said...

I had to read those out loud to my husband. They were all funny! I love the feather incident.

Your kids are cracking me up - the cleaning comments are hysterical.

I love when you can hear "mom" talking in their comments..."if you clean up just a little bit at a time"...
