Things I've Heard Lately : Part 2

Just a quick list this time of some of the funny and sweet things I've heard the girls say lately...


Ella has become quite the model of manners lately. The other day I offered her a bagel with cream cheese sandwich for lunch. She took off the top to the sandwich, twitched a little bit like she was going to start screaming at any second, and then apparently had some sort of epiphany. She then calmly handed me the top and said, "Thank you, but no thank you, mom. I prefer to eat mine as open faced sandwiches." Oh, the good it does my heart when they actually use the manners we've taught them.....


Maggie also has the very sweetest way of saying "No sank you" to anyone assisting her lately. Yesterday she got choked on an apple peel and ended up getting sick all over the kitchen floor. I scooped her up to be sure she was okay. She said, "I think I might choke again." So I carried her into the bathroom assuming she meant she might throw up again. I asked if she thought she was going to be sick, and she said, "Oh, no sank you, mom" draging out every word as much as she thought possible.


The phrase Maggie uses most often these days is, "Oh shoot!" Everything she says requires an exclamation point... if she bumps into one of her sisters, oh shoot, if she drops her apple, oh shoot, just about everything can elicit an oh shoot from Maggie. It is too funny!

More from the mouths of Sarah and Kate soon....

Oh they are soo cute!! I love it :) The other day I asked Caleb for a hug and he informed me that we can't hug when we have shoes on. I had to laugh!! Fortunately he did clarify by telling me it's because we don't want to get each other dirty with our shoes. I love when kids talk! (most of the time)

Those precious "kid-isms," you'll be so glad you documented these all someday! Extra Mommy Gold Stars for it when you have such full hands!

I love the new family picture on your header...it's great. It makes me miss North Carolina.
