Cute kid conversations!

I was in the bathroom getting ready to brush my teeth and Red had just finished peeing in the potty he looks up at me and says, "One day when I was a baby I had milk when you feed me with your nurse." I smiled at him and said, "Yes." When I feed the baby I tell him I am nursing her, so he thinks that a breast is called a nurse.

Last night we were sitting on the couch and I turned the television (first I had to hook the cable back up) on to see if there was anything worth watching on. I found a channel talking about the presidential candidates. GG started asking me questions about who the next president was going to be, to which I told her honestly that I didn't know. She just did a report on George Washington in school so it is of interest to her. The cute part in all of this was Monkey. After she had stopped asking her questions he looks at me and says very seriously, "I want to be the president one day." I must of looked shocked because he then followed it with, "What?" I smiled at him and told him to go for it. Such a big thinker that one is!

This one cracks me up but I can only laugh at it now! Saturday I gave GG and Monkey some Valentine's candy called fun dip, while Red was sleeping. They started to get rowdy and I looked to see what they were doing. They were feeding Peanut the candy. I immediately grabbed her and wiped as much of it out of her mouth as I could. Then came the conversation of why we don't give babies sugar and so on. I took their candy away and told them they couldn't play on the computer, which was what they were going to do after they finished their candy, as well as tell their daddy what they did when he came home. For some reason they were more upset about telling him then the other punishments. Anyways, after a few minutes GG comes out with her Bible in hand and says, "The Bible says it's not right for you to punish us more than one time for the same thing." Shocked at how bold she was I told her, "Well you take your Bible and find where it says that and then I will change your punishment." At first she was happy about this and went to go look it up. About 5 minutes later she comes to me sad, "Mom if I'm going to find it I will have to read the whole Bible and that will take forever." At this point I am trying not to laugh. I explain to her about a conversation that her dad and her had a few weeks ago which made her say that about punishment. In the end they got to play the computer just not as long as they would have gotten to and telling their dad didn't kill them. I think they thought he was going to punish them too. But I had already taken care of it, we don't do the whole wait til your dad comes home.

You're right...kids say the funniest things! Thanks for your words of wisdom about the lipstick. You're right. If we put it on our lips, it has to be safe, huh? Oh what a day. I just found him a few minutes ago, right after lunch, in my studio. He had gotten into my markers, pens, and pencils and had drawn all over my dry erase board (I have a small one near my desk) with Permanent marker! All while I was tryihg to clean up from lunch. AMAZING.

I can't believe they fed her candy!!! I will have to remember that Carlie, Sam, and Harry are capable of that when our new baby arrives!

I guess I should really write down in her baby book her first food being candy, thanks to her siblings! At least it will make a good story to tell her one day.

That's funny about the candy, sounds like something my boys would do. Drew is always asking me if Selah can have all kinds of food. As it is, I have to worry about grandparents feeding her sugar!
