Tuesday Tidbits

Tuesday Tidbits is my day to record all the cute and funny things my kids say and do.

Most of my Tuesday Tidbits have been about Lexie. She is just in such a funny stage right now!

She loves to mimic me. When I put in my contacts, she puts in her contacts. This involves licking her finger, and then putting her finger in her eye. Not very sanitary!

She calls granola bars "Noli Bars." Dylan used to call them that at her age, and now she does it!

I witnessed Lexie's first eye roll this week. We were in the car, and Grant was talking to her. I happened to catch her reaction in the rearview mirror. Yes, a very distinct eye roll. The first of many, I'm sure!

Lately, when Lexie wakes up, she's ready to get out of bed immediately. She woke up before dawn this morning, and thought it was time to get up. She kept calling me, and I ignored her. This usually works, and she goes back to bed. But this morning, she was mad. She tried a new tactic: "Mommy, Dyl hit me!!!" Riiight. He woke up, walked to her room, hit her, and promptly feel back asleep. Gotta hand it to her for trying!

Lexie has been super sweet lately. She loves to give me a smooch, and say, "Mommy, I am your best girl," as she leans her cheek against mine. This makes my heart melt! She is my best girl!

And one for Dylan, my healthy eater:

I asked him on Friday what his snack was at school. He told me that he had cookies. I asked him what kind, to which he replied, "Black ones."
"Oh, you mean Oreos?" I asked.
"I don't know. They were black with white stuff in the middle!"
My little man doesn't even know what Oreos are! He hardly ever eats cookies, or any baked good for that matter!


  1. The eye rolling is too much! Aidyn does the same thing and I laugh every time. It's so funny (and sometimes not) when your kids mimic you. Keeps you on your best behavior haha.

  2. Oh my goodness. He didn't know what Oreos were? That kid is MISSING out. Oreos are a fav in our house.

    LOL at Lexie trying to get your attention by saying Dylan hit her. That's hilarious.

  3. I love her attempt at getting out of bed early! So funny! My kiddos know what Oreos are, but only because they always want me to buy them and I don't!

  4. I WISH I didn't know what Oreo's are...sinful little jokers!!

    how funny about Lexie's eye rolling..happens constantly at my house too

  5. funny about the oreos. They bring really healthy stuff into Patrick's preschool too but of course he never eats it.

  6. Tom asked Tyler to share with Braden and he rolled his eyes, it was the funniest thing ever.

  7. I wish I never knew what Oreo's were I cannot buy them or I will eat too many! lol I try to stay clear of them.

  8. At least she stays in her bed! Nate does too, but he'll wake up the whole hose yelling for us. It's kind of funny!


I love hearing from you! Let's chat!!!
