Tidbits...Not on a Tuesday

I used to call this Tuesday Tidbits, but it seems like I'm always a day-or week-or month behind at this point!

So here are a few cute and funny things my kids are saying and doing:


*Dylan is turning 9 on Friday.  NINE!!!  It feels like time is flying by too quickly.  Dylan caught on to my feelings, and reminded me, "Don't be sad!  Even though it's going to be the last single number, I'll still be your baby!"

*Dylan loves his baby brother so much.  Every night he holds him and reads to him.  One night I overheard him telling Liam, "We're going to be brothers even when we're really old!"


*I put on a new pair of fuzzy pajama pants.  Lexie looked at me funny and asked, "Are your pants made out of a sheep or something?!?"

*One night for dinner, I made stuffed peppers and mashed potatoes.  Lexie refused to eat the potatoes with tomato sauce poured over them.  The next time I made mashed potatoes, she asked, "It's not going to be that fruit gravy, is it?"

*She calls Fritos "Foritos" and I will never correct her!

*One day we were practicing her spelling words.  One of her words was don't.  She spelled it, "D-O-N-thingy-T."

*She had a sleepover at my parent's house and left her beloved BunBun there when she came home.  My dad called and offered to bring it to her.  While we were waiting, Lexie wrote him a thank you card.  When my dad opened it, he started to laugh.  It turned out to be the most offensive thank you card ever!!! 


(She knew how to spell thank, but was making it while watching TV, so I think she got distracted and wrote it wrong!)


*We were leaving a restaurant.  We had to go around the corner to get to our car, but Lily kept going straight.  I said, "Turn, Lily!"  Lily did just that.  She stopped and began to turn in a circle!

*She asks for Ah Boob.  What is that?  Youtube!!!


*Sweet little Liam is a Mama's Boy!  If he is near me, but not touching me, he will roll over and scoot around until he reaches my side and is touching me!  It is the sweetest!


Well, three out of four looking and smiling is good enough!
