Things Said

Here are a few things said and/or overheard around the house lately that have made me smile.


I was watching Planet Earth with the kids and there was a shark that ate a seal and it was really fast. Isaac says, "Mom, if you want to be fast you have to be like a motorcycle." Really? Not sure where that came from.

While watching this show a commercial came on for Head and Shoulders where there was a man interviewing a football player after a game and the player had this long, flowing, curly hair. Alex says, "That's a boy with girl hair, right mommy?" That most definitely was a boy with girl hair! If you've seen this commercial you know what we are talking about!


Last week I was baking a cake and Isaac was in the bathroom....on the toilet. Apparently he likes to think while sitting on the toilet. He called me over once to ask me a question and I answered and then went back into the kitchen. Then he starts calling me again, over and over and over. Finally, I head to the bathroom where I got this thought provoking question, "Who painted the walls in the bathroom?" Seriously????


One day I was doing devotions with the kids and the devotional was about how God made the ocean. Afterward one kid had a comment and in our house once one says something, everyone has something to say. So we started with Isaac.

Isaac - "We can make sandcastles at the ocean."

Next was Joshua - "God made everything."

Next Amanda - "We love everything that God made."

Then came Alex - "I only like soccer practice."

Hmmmmm? Wonder where that came from.


Last Friday my nephew Carter spent the night. I overheard Joshua to say him, "So Morgan is always bossy at you?"

Carter replied, "Of course she is, she's a girl!"


I was using the bathroom when my lovely daughter Amanda walked in and told me, "Mommy, I think your buns are too big for the toilet."

Ummmm, Thank you?!

Oh the honesty of children! I've been meaning to tell you about your buns, but she beat me to it- just kidding :) Glad you got to use Carter's quote! They all made me laugh!
