Out of the mouths of babes--October

So there aren't a whole lot of entries this month. I don't know if it's because I spent way too many hours lying on the couch half asleep or because I just forgot a lot of the funny things. (Pregnancy brain!) Anyway, enjoy these tidbits.

10/7--Andrew is leaving on a work trip EARLY in the morning tomorrow and he was telling Brandon that he has to wake up at like 4 a.m. Brandon's sage advice: "Well, then you better get to bed, Dad. You only have like six hours. And six hours goes by fast....at night."

10/7--Whitney's got it all figured out. She just told me, "If we have a baby girl, we're going to name her Puffy. That's my favorite name for a baby girl." I didn't know she had a thing for Sean Combs.

10/8--Andrew is back from his trip and Whitney just informed us, "I went on a business trip to the backyard. My friends were there. It was hard. My back hurts." You're too young for this, girl!

Thumbs up for business trips!

10/10--When Whitney woke up this morning, the first thing she said was, "Mom. Mom. I just heard my stomach growl!" I don't know if she has ever heard that before. Maybe because she's always eating. It cracked me up.

10/21--For dinner tonight I tried a new recipe (courtesy of Kelly) for some herb biscuits. They were a big hit. After Whitney took her first bite, she told me, "Mom, you're almost like Nicolle now." It cracked me up and I took it as a HUGE compliment that she thinks my cooking skills are nearing Nicolle's, the gourmet chef.

10/21--After enjoying our "gourmet" dinner, Andrew was wrestling around with the kids on the floor. Whitney discovered something new: "Daddy, YOU have a baby in your belly!"

10/22--Whitney walked up to Brandon and sadly said, "I lost my bubbles again." Taking the father figure role, B said, "Again? You need to be more responsible and keep track of them."

Yay for responsibility!

10/25--It has been raining ALL DAY here today. It is a huge blessing for our drought-stricken state. Whitney and Brandon were sitting at the table doing a puzzle and Whit started singing, "Rain, rain, go away. Come again another day."
B: Stop singing that song.
W: Why?
B: Don't you want to live?
W: What?
B: We need the rain for the crops to grow, so if you tell it to go away, we can't live.
W: What are crops?
B: That's a fancy word for....corn and stuff.
W: Corn is delicious!

10/29--At dinner tonight Brandon was telling me all about Boy's Club at school.
Me: What's Boy's Club?
B: Just some of my friends.
Me: What do you do?
B: We pick our favorite Pokemon guy and our favorite Star Wars guy. I think we need to start handing out flyers. Maybe we could put them on light poles. They could say, "Boys club. No girls allowed! Call Brandon's phone number to join."

Boys rule!

10/31--We just got back from trick-or-treating and Andrew asked Whit, "How was it?"
She answered, "It was REALLY scary and a little bit fun." Probably how a lot of 3 year old girls feel about it.

Puffy Sweat does have a nice ring to it! Those were really funny. And Brandon sounds like a parent already! Tell him to slow down and just be a kid again!

Will Brandon let Jack join boys club? At playgroup yesterday there were 10 girls and 2 boys. Have Brandon leave some fliers on our door.

Shelley said...

Corn is delicious and my back hurts after business trips, too. Too bad I can't join Brandon's boys club. Sounds like fun, even though I don't know anything about Pokemon.

Oh, that exchange about rainfall and crops and delicious corn is priceless! I think Jonas would love to join B's "boys' club!"

Destiny said...

I love your kids comments. I keep meaning to jot down what my kids say and forget. They are priceless.

I've been rehearsing that line with Whitney every time she has come over for the last year... I'm glad she finally performed. I guess I'll have to pony up the 10 bucks I promised her... :)
