Happy Tuesday! Thanks for all the love on my poem about kindergarten. Y’all are really too sweet… it was easier to get my feelings out in poetry than prose (and add that to the list of things I never thought I’d say). I must say, this week was a slow one for the funnies, but it was a lot of preparing for school and really soaking up time with all five of us. I hope your kids have had a great first couple of days at school – and that all the parents had a nice first couple of days without them! Here are the quotations of the week!
Overheard at the breakfast table…
J: I’m Mr. Boil, the popcorn chef!
(We then kept the Mr. Boil ruse going for another two hours that day.)
EK: Can we catch fireflies sometime? We’re gonna do it like this: I’m gonna flick the lights, and the real fireflies will think it’s their family, and you guys will catch them!
Hubby: Come on, let’s get in the car!
Hubby: But we need to take EK to school on her first day!
J: I don’t wanna go to school!
Hubby: We’re just walking EK in and then coming back home.
J: *relieved giggle* Ooohhh…
At bedtime, EK’s prayer song: I pray that I would one day be an adult and I’d find a man to dance with who is also an adult (still singing, mind you). I’ll say “truth” and you say “Jesus”. Now stomp your feet for hooray!
*almost literally 20 minutes later*
EK: How did you like my song?
Me: It was great!
EK: It was called “My Bright King Lord”.
J, randomly this morning: Hey! Listen to this! Davy the baby and Katie the lady!
Hubby: Um, good rhyming.
Well there it is, short and sweet. What things have your kids said recently?
