Oh, Children...

Kids are funny. We all know it. There have even been TV shows dedicated to the wacky things that come out of their mouths.

I admit, one of my favorite things about spending time with my godchildren is that you never know what they're going to say - or ask. (Asking can be difficult - sometimes those questions have to be put off for mommies to handle - but I digress.)

So, if you're like me and enjoy watching kiddos learn and grow and spout things that we find funny but they are totally earnest about, you have to check out this post from BooMama. It's sweet and will make you smile, and for some reason, reminds me of my "oldest kid", Ian (who, btw, will be a teenager this year! Where oh where did the time go?!) Oh, and don't skip the comments, friends - some of those are just as priceless.

I may be aking Alex to add our current "children" to his list...Lord knows they need help. Seriously. They're all cute until 3 am, then I'm pretty sure they hate us. And like any good brother-sister-all-night-tag-team, they share their bad habits, so that when one is tired of yowling (or scratching the carpet at the door, or opening/slamming the bathroom cabinet), the other will pick up and run with it. It's a delight, really. I've never considered throwing one of my high heeled shoes out the door...ever. A Doc Marten boot, maybe, but never a heel - they're too nice, and I'm sure once the threat was over the beasties would commence chewing. 'Cause, ya know, they want to show their appreciation.

And I just want to mention, "Just As I Am" is my favoritest hymn ever. Hubby ~ if that elusive record is ever made, will you please cover that? I will love you long time if you do :)
