Dirty Work

Wednesday, April 30th, 2014

We were sitting in the car in our driveway, getting ready to leave. My daughter saw our neighbor doing yard work, so she rolled down the window and yelled, “Hey Sherry, why does your husband make you do all the work?”

Loud and Clear

Friday, April 25th, 2014

While at a family picnic, my son was trying to get his aunt’s attention. I suggested we yell for her in our outside voices, so we both shouted, “Aunt Susan!” When she didn’t hear us, I told him to yell louder. So he proceeded to call out, “Louder!”

Winter Exploration

Monday, December 30th, 2013

I went outside with my three boys after a snowstorm to look for animal footprints. I pointed out some kitty tracks to my 2-year-old, and then some bunny tracks. Next, he pointed to the prints my snow boots had left and said, “Look Mommy, hippo tracks!”

Fishing Buddies

Thursday, December 12th, 2013

When my husband picked up our daughter from daycare, he mentioned that he was going to take her fishing. The next morning, her teacher asked my daughter if she had caught anything. Eleia responded, “No, but my dad has crabs!”

Winter Wonderland

Monday, December 2nd, 2013

My son was excited about the first snow of the year and immediately wanted to go sledding. I told him that I didn’t think the snow was going to stick to the ground. He responded, “That’s OK, Mom. I’ll just put tape down.”
