So are the days....

Oh, the blog has once again fallen by the wayside to family time and work commitments and summer days and reading books and enjoying the porch swing and exercising and facebook.....
and so is life for now.

But I can't go another week without joining in Tiny Talk Tuesday. So many of the kid's antics I forget, but here are some recent gems that keep me smiling.

Rebekah scared the wits out of me the other day when she pulled back the shower curtain and shined a flashlight in my face.

"Rebekah, WHAT are you doing?"

"Mommy, I know that light and rain make a rainbow. I want to make your shower full of rainbows because I love you."

Elizabeth came home reporting that our neighbor dog, Jack, jumped on her back. I overheard this conversation.
Lydia (12): Betsy, I think Jack was trying to mate with you.

Elizabeth (9): What does 'mate' mean?

Lydia: It means that Jack wants to marry you.

Elizabeth: But Jack's already married to the other neighbor's dog.

Lydia: Oh.

John was using his fork as a catapult for peas at the dinner table.

Hannah: John stop using your fork as a first class lever!

(You can only imagine how that made Sean smile:)

OH my goodness. The dog conversation CRACKED me up! And you gotta love the simple machines knowledge.

My blog is sorely neglected as well...but the children ain't :)
