Tuesday Tidbits

It's been a while since I've done a Tuesday Tidbits post!  Tuesday Tidbits is my way of remembering all the cute and funny things my kids say and do!



-He asked me, "Does Lexie have white tights?  I need them to be Peter Pan!"

-He had to get an infected blister drained.  After the doctor finished, he said, "I can't wait to tell my dad what a brave boy I was!"


-While running a timed race, Lexie ran past a patch of blue flowers.  She stopped, backed up a few steps, squatted down to pick the flowers, sniffed them, then stood up and continued her race!

-She insisted that a slug fell off of her hamster, and had to take it outside to let it go. Later, she told me the hamster pooped it out. I had to explain to her that it wasn't a slug that she carried outside!

-She told us, "Excuse me, Miss Mommy? I love you.  Excuse me, Mr. Dylan. I love you."

-She calls an ambulance an ambylance.

-We improvised with the candles on Grant's cake, and used a #3 candle and 3 single candles next to it.  Lexie looked at it, and said, "Daddy?!?  Are you THREE today???"

-One of Lexie's favorite flip-flops broke, so she threw it away.  However, she insisted on keeping the other one, and wearing a mismatched pair of flip-flops.

-Lily pooped.  Lexie told her, "Ewww!  You stink like dead pepper!"


-We are trying to teach Lily animal sounds.  She woofs as soon as she sees or hears a dog.    She also woofs at every animal, except birds.  When she sees a bird in the sky, she looks up, and attempts to tweet at it.  It sounds more like a hiss than a tweet!

-She calls her siblings "Da" and "La." I think it's so cute!

-Lily has the cutest "cheese" face.  She scrunches up her nose, grins hugely to show her hippo teeth, and tilts back her head!

-Lily recently started to give kisses.  She leans in, says "Ahhhh" and touches her lips to your cheek.

-I asked Lily if she was pooping.  She looked at me, grabbed her diaper, and said, "Yeah."


  1. Oh my gosh that last one is absolutely my favorite - she is too funny! Thanks for the laugh :)

  2. Buster calls ambulances "am-ee-blance". It's hilarious. I hope he never learns the right way to say it.

    I can't believe Lily already knows when she's pooping. Smartie pants.

  3. Love the mismatched flip flops...that's something Rylie would do. And what the heck is a dead pepper? LOL Cute post!
