“Mom, look what I made!” He holds up a play dough creation from a play dough mold.

“Oh, a fire hydrant.”

“Fire hydrant?”

“See, a fireman hooks up his hose here and then points it at the house and puts the fire out with the water.”

“But the house will burn all down.”

“Well hopefully he puts the fire out before that happens.”

“Yeah, but then we will have to clean up our house because it will be all wet and I don’t want to do that.”

“well then, lets not set our house on fire.”

“Yeah, let’s not,” he says shaking his head.

Son#1: “Mommy, I learned in school that your skin has little, tiny holes in it.”

Me: “Mhmm”

Son #1: “Did you know that?”

Me: “Yes I did.”

Son#1: “It kinda freaked me out. Actually, half the science freaks me out!”

Son #1: “Dad, some girls were being mean to me and called me names at school.”

Daddy: “Oh?”

Son#1: “Yeah! They called me sugarbuns! And G called me cupcake! I’m not going to be her friend anymore because she called me cupcake!”

Poem by a Five Year Old

This poem was written by my five year old son for Mother’s Day. It was just so precious I had to share.

 

Oh mommy, Oh mommy,
I love you so much.
I will kiss you and love you
All day and night

Oh mommy, Oh mommy,
I like you to tuck me in bed
Oh mommy, Oh mommy,
I love you all day.

Mommy Olympics

This morning I was asking Monkey Boy how he was feeling. He had spilled his water cup all over his crib last night and was crying because he was all wet. (Mommy’s fault. I gave him the wrong cup.) Spunky Boy over heard me.

Spunky Boy: “When?”

Me: “Last night while you were sleeping. Monkey Boy was all wet so I took him out and undressed him and put him in your bed to rest while I changed his bedding. Then I dressed him and put him back in his crib. ”

Spunky Boy: Wow! You deserve a medal next time you do that!

Sometimes my kids do show their appreciation. They are just so darn cute!
