Happy Tuesday! I hope you’ve gotten out there to vote! If not, there are a few hours left. The kids were really sad that I didn’t take them along with me, because they were very curious. But I also could not see waiting in a long line with a couple of rambunctious toddlers. Next year, maybe.
Anyway, here are the funnies! Enjoy a little lift in an otherwise serious day.
Me, waking J up from a long nap: *snuggle*kiss*cuddle*
J: *big yawns*
Me: You’re the cutest.
J, whispering: Get out of my bed.
On a walk with the kids in two strollers…
Me: Slow down! This is not a race.
EK: Yes it is! Run, Daddy! Run!
On the same walk, passing a family of six…
EK: That was a big family!
Me: They only had one more person than us!
EK, randomly: I texted Samuel from your phone.
Me: Oh, uh, okay…
EK: For dinner, I want a hamburger and French fries and ketchup.
J: I want a hamburger and French fries and butter and ANOTHER HAMBURGER!
EK, randomly: Can I take a boat ride and get pregnant?
Me: Wait, what?
We are often trying to make D walk nowadays (he’s stubbornly crawling still) and every time we do it, J follows up with: Hey! Let’s see if J could walk!!

After J was singing his own mash-up of “Twinkle Twinkle” and “ABC” and semi-playing it on the piano…
Me: That was great, bud! You’re so talented!
J: I’m so tired of songs. (Gets up and walks away.)
J, just before his nap: I can’t wait for Christmas, Mommy.
Me: Why is that, sweetie?
J: I can’t wait for Christmas and when the snow comes while the sun is down.
(Poor kid doesn’t realize we don’t really have white Christmases in this state.)
Things my kids pretended a large cardboard box was: house, boat, closet, and the ultimate hiding place. For DAYS.
Me: I was thinking we could have Italian for dinner.
J: That sounds ablicious!
Every single morning… Already…
J: IS IT CHRISTMAS?!
Me: Is the tree up?
Me: Then not yet.
Well, there are the funnies. Are your kiddos excited about Christmas? Are they already begging to do all the Christmas things?
