Tuesday Tidbits

Tuesday Tidbits is my way to remember all the cute and funny things my kidlets say and do!

Dylan called me in to his room to tell my something. When I got there, all he said, was, "Mommy, I'm already half asleep."

Lexie is now addicted to lip balm (it's in the genes). She likes to smear it on her face and neck at times. One day I tried to wipe it off, and she began crying. "But, Mommy, you have lipstick on your cheeks!"

Lexie was writing up a shopping list. She asked, "Mommy, how do you spell cow milk?" I spelled it out for her. After I finished, she asked, "Mommy, how do you spell M?"

At the end of Dylan's day at school, he tells both of his teachers "I love you" before he leaves. No wonder they're smitten with him!

Lexie was going potty the other day. She yelled out from the bathroom, "There's a coconut in the toilet!!!"

Last week, we picked my mom up from work. We passed a cemetery on the way to my parent's house. Dylan asked, "Is that where your mom is buried?" My mom turned around, looked at him, and said, "I'm her mom! And I'm not buried anywhere!" Dylan looked really embarrassed, then whispered, "I meant your Grandma."

My sister watched the kids last week while we went to a viewing. As we were talking in the entryway before leaving, Lexie ran upstairs, chasing after the cat. Five minutes later, I went upstairs to get her. I found her asleep on the bathroom floor! When Lexie is tired, she doesn't hesitate to go to bed!

Lexie has been having vivid dreams lately. She always tells us about them. Two recent ones were of Santa melting and Nina stealing her hot dog. She was very sad about the Santa one, but really angry about the hot dog!

When I attempt to take a picture of Dylan, he either runs away, hides under something, or hams it up. Today, he emerged from his hiding spot to give me a big smile!

Lexie told me she was thirsty today. "How thirsty?" I asked her. Her response was, "Kind of old." I think she misunderstood my question!

Lexie loves animals. Dylan has been learning all about dogs at school, and told Lexie that when dogs lick you it means they love you. Lexie walked over to me today, and leaned in for a kiss. Imagine my surprise when she licked my forehead. I was in for a bigger surprise when she licked our dog.
