From what I can remember...

I think I need to re-boot my brain. I can't seem to remember where I put the peanut butter lately, let alone keep track of my kids. So before I forget I wanted to write down some of the funnies my kids have said lately.


While I was combing her hair after her bath, she scratched her ear then looked at her finger and said, "Dangit! I got cheese in my ear!"

She asked if she could watch some t.v. before going to bed. I told her, "No, it is after midnight!" (Hey, it was the weekend.) She looked at me a moment then said, "Nuh-uh, Mom. I'm three and he's a guy." I don't know what she meant, but I took it as a sign she was too tired to make sense.

This afternoon she was sitting at the counter eating lunch while I did the dishes. Suddenly she looked at me and said:
"Knock knock"
M: "Who's there?"
E: "Me!"
M: "Me who?"
E: "Hi there! Can I come in and play?"
I don't think she quite grasped the concept...

She does have a good grasp of language though. Last week she and Jake were goofing around and knocked over a stack of DVDs in the living room. Evie looked at the mess and then announced, "Well, that's unfortunate."

And my personal favorite is that she has become a backseat driver. (Which Brian insists she gets from me...) We'll be driving down the street and a light will turn red more than an hundred yards away, she will start screaming from the back for Brian to, "Stop! STOP! Red means STOP, Dad!" She will also point out every car parked on the side of the road by telling Brian not to crash into them. "Look out Daddy! Don't crash into that gray car!" She is also on the look out for any stop signs and telephone poles so she can give her Dad a heads up. The funniest part is that she only does this when Brian is driving. Coincidence? I think not.

The sad part is that I know there have been more from Evie and some from Jake, but I cannot recall what they've said to make me laugh so hard. I even had one that I thought, "Oooh. I need to blog that!" But I didn't do it right then and now it is gone. Ah well, I am off to find that peanut butter... maybe I should check the freezer.

*I just remembered one from Jake! Tonight Josh asked if he was looking forward to summer break or if he'd miss school. Jake's response? "Well, I'm not looking forward to first grade. I'm worried about the time commitment."

Perhaps the cheese in her ears has been causing the lack of "hearing" mom's directions.
