Our Five Ring Circus: Tuesday Tidbits

Tuesday Tidbits

Tuesday is my day to remember all the cute and funny things my kids say and do!

-Lexie was looking at a treasure box she made for me. She told me, "I made that...with a lot of love!"

-Lexie and Dylan were playing.  Out of the blue, Lexie asked, "Dylan?  Are we still best friends?"  To which Dylan replied with an enthusiastic "Yes!"

-We were driving somewhere, listening to Christmas music on the radio.  During the commercial break, Lexie started complaining.  "Shut up, commercials, and put the songs back on!"

-Dylan walked through the living room while Grant was watching a football game.  Just as he was walking back through, Grant yelled at the screen, "Run you A-hole, run!!!"  Dylan looked back and said, "Oh.  Sorry." 

-While driving home from school, Lexie asked me how the Thanksgiving feast was at Dylan's school.  I told her what we ate, which included turkey. She said, "Eww, yuck!  If something is killed, I WON'T EAT IT!  If something is dead, I WON'T EAT IT!" 

-All last week and this week, Lexie's class has been working on writing their full names.  First, middle, and last.  Lexie kept bringing home papers with the name Rachel under her name.  She brought home another paper that said Alexandria Rachel.  Rachel is NOT her middle name! She finally told me that her teacher had Rachel written as her middle name, so she just wrote that name instead of telling him her real middle name!

-Dylan is such a sweet boy.  At the Thanksgiving Feast, he came over to where I was sitting, gave me a hug, and asked if he could get me more food. 

-We went to Long John Silver's for Dylan's birthday dinner.  It was his choice.  Lexie wanted hush puppies.  She asked, "Where are my chicken balls?"  A few minutes later, Dylan asked, "Are you ordering those mini-balls?"  Grant corrected him and told him they were hush puppies.  Dylan said, "Oh, yeah, horse puppies!"

-Lexie found my hand sanitizer on the floor.  She ran into the living room, and asked, "Whose hanitizer is this?!?" 

-I had the remainder of Dylan's birthday cake stored on the kitchen counter.  I walked out to find Lily standing on a chair, on her tiptoes, digging her finger into the icing, and eating it.  Later, the second cake was placed on the opposite side of the counter.  I found her standing on the chair with a finger in each cake!!!  Needless to say, the cakes were moved!

-Lily is obsessed with vaseline.  She likes to eat it...and even better, style her hair with it.  No matter where I move the container, she finds it!!!


  1. Love this post! Such a great idea to remember!

  2. My kids call it "hanitizer" too! :)

  3. I love that Lily found the cake - too cute! And it's so sweet that your kids like each other so much!!!

  4. So precious to write all this down! Chicken balls cracked me up!!

  5. That cracks me up about the cake. I love Lexie's middle name story too!!

  6. I'm laughing so hard about Grant yelling at the TV and Dylan thinking he meant him. So, so funny!!!

  7. I am still laughing about Lexie and her middle name! I bet Lily was in heaven eating that birthday cake:)

  8. I wish i had done this when mine were younger! They always ask about what they said/did when they were little, and it is so easy to forget!

    Now, I am with Lexie...end the stupid commercials!

    My friend's daughter found a huge jar of vaseline and COVERED herself with it...took her hours to get it all clean!

  9. Thank you for such a good laugh this morning!! I loved them all!!! You have hilarious children! :)

  10. Run a-hole...ha! That's for the giggle :)

  11. Oh my goodness... I could not stop laughing at the pseudo conversation between Grant & Dylan... poor kid!

    And I happen to like Lexi's fake middle name, ha ha :)

    Lily - too cute with the cakes!


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