This past weekend, my parents were up here from Georgia. Because of the renovations, there isn’t exactly a guest room, so we blew up a queen-sized air mattress, and they slept in the kitchen floor. I know – crazy. Anyway, the air mattress in the kitchen was a lovely plaything for the kiddos, and EK was making us laugh by calling all the pillows “puddles”. I’m not sure where the disconnect was, but no matter how many times I tried to correct her, it wouldn’t take. That may or may not have been because I was laughing so hard about her saying “puddles”.
We did have a little moment on Saturday when J and EK were playing on the air mattress – like we frequently do on Hubby’s and my bed, which is king-sized – where J was rolling and rolling, and rolled right off onto the floor. Now, this thing is sitting on the ground, so the floor was less than a foot away, so he wasn’t falling from several feet or anything. But, he must’ve hit his face first, before anything else took the weight off, because he ended up with a giant bruise (and scratch, somehow) on his cheek. I noticed today (four days later) that the lovely green and purple have spread up to his eye. I think it’s appropriate to do this: #motheroftheyear
My other favorite thing EK said was when she had woken up from her nap on Sunday, and my parents had left to go home. She knew they would leave while she was asleep, and she got a goodbye hug and kiss and everything, but this was the first thing she said when she woke up:
“Necie and G-Daddy gone to Georgia! I can’t find them! I need to chase them!”
Necie and G-Daddy are obviously what we call my parents. Once again, I will reiterate that she knew they were leaving. And also, I’m not sure we’ve really used the word “chase” before, so I’m not sure when she decided chasing them to Georgia would work, but she definitely wanted to go for it.
An aside: My kids love my parents. They don’t see them as much as Hubby’s family members, so it’s a special treat when they’re here. They also get pretty spoiled, which as long as I’m not doing it, I don’t really mind. But there are definitely times that they get to do silly things (see picture above) that I’d not normally be okay with.
Anyone have a hilarious thing your toddler said this week that you’d like to share?!

Haha. My little guy has learned “fork” and as you can imagine…it does not sound like it should. Why does everything have to sound like a swear word? Having a very loud running commentary in the grocery about forks and spoons is getting old, but the alternative might have people giving me the #motheroftheyear award! Ps, I can’t stop staring at your table. I love it!
Haha, my daughter mispronounced fork for a long time, too! That’s a easily misconstrued one, haha! The table was actually found at a consignment store – and in that space, long and narrow, it is perfect. The leaves come out the ends instead of the sides to make it wider. #winning
Great post! I don’t know what it is about those air beds, when my parents visit my daughter considers it an indoor trampoline. haha!
