Kids are funny. And maybe every mom feels the same way, but mine are very funny.
Lately, I've been feeling like my main purpose in life is to load and unload the dishwasher. It wasn't so long ago that I didn't HAVE a dishwasher, so I'm grateful to have one...and I'd get my kids to do it but I'm quite particular about where things go!
During prayers a few nights back, Miso says..."Thank you Jesus for all the blooming opossums".
(I'm not even sure where that came from, sounds like a cut and paste idea from a few books we'd read...and it's hard to stifle laughter during prayers!)
And this was an honest one, Bashi was under the table and I see him crouched down pointing into a bright beam of sunlight, and he just says..."Mommy look! Dust...." (Yes, thanks for reminding me.)
Earlier he'd really packed away some dinner and as he sat holding his belly he said, "Mom...I ate too many rice..." (I know what it's like...)
But the funniest one lately was just yesterday while driving to Trader Joe's, darling daughter began a verbal salad bar of strangeness, she started with...."Texas is a stinky place, I haven't smelled it but I smelled the juice that was there." (Juice? What?!!) When I started laughing, she told me that I should NOT laugh at her because it might hurt her feelings. Then I asked more about Texas, and she said that Texas and also Oklahoma, both stink, and something about alcohol ...and then she said, "But I'm not telling you about Texas!" (I apologize to everyone from Texas and Oklahoma and I assure you that her sentiments did not come from me. I can think of many other states that DO stink, but I will not point them out here!)
Ah, never a dull moment. Actually...some dull moments would be kinda nice now and then, but I'm sure I'd find some way to spice them up. I like to fill blank spots with creativity...
bulletproof coffee. Unbeknownst to me, my darling bought a 5 lb bag of Bulletproof coffee at the same time...a perfect match.
