Our Five Ring Circus: Tuesday Tidbits

Tuesday Tidbits

 Tuesday Tidbits is my way of remember all the cute and funny things my kids say and do!


*Dylan is growing up quickly!  I was going through his closet and noticed there were quite a few shirts that he hasn't worn in a while.  I mentioned it to him, and he shrugged and said, "Mom, those aren't really my style."

*Dylan was putting away dishes after school. I walked into the kitchen and found him reading from his Percy Jackson book while drying a dish.  He looked up, smiled, and told me, "I'm really into mythology right now!"

*Dylan is so helpful around the house and with his siblings.  Despite the occasional sighs and eye rolls, he is a REALLY good kid!



*Her newest saying is "That's a beaut!" 

*At a recent party, my friend Steph and I wrote our names on our cups.  I underlined the f in my name and she underlined the ph in her name.  A few days later, I found a list of Lily's friends, written by Lexie.  On it, was the name Sphf.  Sure enough, it was Steph!

*I call Lexie the baby whisperer. She is simply amazing with Liam.



*We taught Lily her full name: Liliana Kathryn.  She likes to remind everyone that her name is "Lily-awna Fafrin."

*Her word for popsicles is popcoocoos.

*Her word for chocolate is chalkit.

*She runs through the house singing "Let It Go" from Frozen, and mimics everything Elsa does while she sings it.

*She loves to play Just Dance.  Her favorite dances are "Time Warp" and "The Final Countdown."

*While visiting some friends, we asked her to say each person's name.  Lily usually calls my friend, Amber,  "Am-brrrrr" or just "Brrrr."  I guess she got embarrassed, because when I pointed at Amber again and asked what her name was, Lily just pointed at her and said, "That."

*At dinner tonight, she picked up a red grape and said, "Mama, look! Baby apples!!!"

*At the end of every book we read, Lily says "Amen" and shuts the book.  I always remind her that it's "The End" but she continues to say Amen.  I love it!

*Bandaids fix everything.  Here's proof:



*Ah, sweet Liam.  His newest sound is to grumble, "Ma ma ma ma ma ma ma" when he gets tired or frustrated.  I like to brag to Grant that he said Mama first!

*He loves his crochet blanket, and loves to poke his fingers through the holes.  I think it's absolutely adorable!


*I kiss him approximately 5 million times a day.  I can't resist that sweet face and blue eyes.
