Kids Say the Darndest Things - Mother's Day Edition


I honestly can't remember the last time I went a whole week without blogging. 

And I've just spent the last five minutes trying to think of something terribly clever and funny to say about that. But I couldn't even manage to pull a smile from myself, so clearly nothing was working.

Can I just blame that on pregnancy brain? Am I allowed to do that yet?

(Please say yes. I have lots of things I need to start blaming on that.)



Last week started out with me being so dang sick I hardly did anything at all, mostly because I really just couldn't work up the motivation while feeling to lousy. Then by the time I was starting to feel a bit better on Thursday, I was so dad-gum far behind on everything it was time to play catch-up. 

I do believe I managed to cross one whole item off my to-do list.

I'm on a roll!

I think I deserve a cupcake for that. Hang on a sec while I go grab one....


*slurp* Ahh, much better.  (yes,  really did eat one)


Anyhow, now it's time to play catch-up on the ole' blog so, let's start with Mother's Day.



The older kids were super excited to show me all the fun Mother's Day things they created. And boy oh boy, was I in for a treat!

I was laughing so hard by the time I was done reading through everything. 

I do believe I'm going to REALLY miss when my kids start making sense and become all logical. This stage is much for fun.

From Savannah: The Girl With A Dramatic Flair



I especially love that I have "shining eyes". LOL!

Does that make me part feline? Or part Disney princess?


The whole "one of five" thing is a riddle her daddy taught her, and she LOVES a good riddle. Can you figure it out?


I was especially stumped on the part where she says, "Thanks for nursing me when I was a baby." 

I mean, what the... haha! I'm going to give her the benefit of the doubt and assume she just means, "taking care of".

Oh, and she thought she was particularly clever with, "You're lion in my heart and I'm not kitten."

And I can honestly say I've never been accused of being "delicate" before.

That girl, what can ya do.


From Joseph: The Boy Who Stumps Me With His Many Personalities


This was on the back of his card.


Wow, I never knew he thinks I'm "cute, good looking, and caring." I guess I should take comfort in the fact that another guy besides my husband thinks I'm cute. LOL!

And to be honest I'm surprised the whole school part was on there. Getting that boy ready for school is like pulling teeth from a crocodile.


From Jacob: The Kid Who Cracks Me Up

So, this is me.. apparently.


No wonder Joseph thinks I'm cute!


Okay, allow me to translate. *clearing throat*


I love it when my mom cooks rolls with butter. This is how she makes it. With dough and bread in the oven, 1 hour.

My mom's favorite t.v. show is exercising.  (not really)




My mom's favorite song is random songs. She sings like a cole flower. (I have no idea what that means)

It bugs my mom when I do not brush my teeth.



To relax my mom likes to sit on the couch. (in my defense, it's called morning sickness, not relaxation)

I wish I could buy my mom a flower.



My mom is special because she cooks for me.

I love it when my mom bakes cupcakes. (for the record, I love that too)



When my mom is driving she texts my dad.


What the... this last one really threw me for a loop! LOL! I will only text at a stop light or if I'm in a line. But I guess I better break that habit. The last thing I want is for my kids to think it's okay to text and drive.

*sigh* The things you learn about yourself.  


So there you have it. 

Now we both know what my children think of me.

Should I be worried?

You are so allowed to blame everything on pregnancy brain! I do, and I'm only eight weeks along. ;)

They all express themselves so well, and their penmanship is much better than my kids' ever was!

(Better than now, and the youngest just turned 31!)
