"How do YOU think?"
"I think moms do it."
"But how can a Mom be a Tooth Fairy?"

Things I Said This Weekend

I would NEVER suggest you use the bathroom! I know how much joy wetting your pants brings you, and I do not want to take away any of that joy.

It's not really considered kind OR friendly to pe.e on your sister's bed. So yes. You have to fix it.

You are trying REALLY hard to trick me into arguing with you. We can argue about jello. Jello is acceptable to argue about. I'll go first. "Red jello is the best!" Ok, now you go. You say, "no it's not," and then you tell me what flavor you think is best.

I wonder why you waited for me to sit down before asking me to get you a fruit bar. Maybe someday you'll tell me why hid around the corner watching everyone else get one instead.

What did Daddy say when you asked him for an apple? You don't know? Oh. Let's go ask him together.

Don't worry about wasting so much of my time by repeatedly asking me to check a job that's not done. You can always pay it back with strong-sitting.

Red jello!

Red jello!

Red jello is the best!

Please put your bottom back into your pants.

It's spells "as.s," it means "but.t," and I'd really prefer you didn't use that particular word.

Josh's contributions:
Take the step stool off your head and go sit down!

If it's easier to sit with the blanket over your head, then go ahead and do it.

And finally,
That math was hard, and you tried, and you did it. That was some good family girl stuff right there.


  1. I absolutely LOVE your blog! However, you know why it won't update in my Blogger dashboard?

  2. Hmmmm. Sadly, I'm pretty computer illiterate. I know a couple of people have had trouble with the Google Reader. I'll put my husband on it and see what he comes up with. And I'm glad you think it. Thanks!

  3. Like it. I'm glad you like it. Daylight savings. Sheesh.

  4. Daylight savings...hee hee hee --

    I'm inspired by you! My husband and I have wanted to adopt a sibling group for quite awhile now. We just haven't been able to because we've been moving back and forth across the country for the past five years (five interstate moves total). We're finally in a place where we've got enough "legal" room and we know we're going to be here long enough. But, last month, I couldn't find a single soul to babysit my kids at home so we could go to the foster parent training. We keep praying though and hopefully we'll get licensed soon enough and then we'll go from there as God leads.

  5. Lynn, found this in the help section:

    I have the answer!!! A dear friend of mine gave me these tips.....Go to your friend's blog. Scroll all the way to the bottom where it says "Subscribe To" and click on it. It will open up another window and at the top of the page it will say "Subscribe to this feed." Click on it and then click on Subscribe. The page will open again and on the right side, click on "View Feed Properties" which will pop open a small window. Click on OK and you're good to go!

    Good luck with your licensure. It's a hard road; keep an open mind. And get ready.

  6. Thank you for your help. I suppose I could switch to Google Reader. Right now though, I simply go to my Blogger:Dashboard and any new posts on the blogs I "follow" are listed in the large window on the right. For some reason, your blog is stuck on the post you titled "Onion Layers" and no new posts after that show up in the window. No worries though. I'll figure something out or I'll just keep clicking through to your blog manually to see if you've got any new posts. :)
    Thanks for your help and for sharing the stories about your family.
