“I love you more than all the planets in the solar system, and more than all the planets that lead to the sun.” -Joshua
“Mom, I love you FOREVER.” –Kaylee (she randomly tells me this all day long…..and I love it each time.

“When I grow up, I’m going to be a Mommy. And when you grow down, you’ll be a little girl! Then I’ll cut your toenails for you.” -Kaylee, while I was grooming her tiny little toes.
“I hope it’s going to snow more.” Brian said after finally getting an awesome snow blower.
(Grace is yelling “mama” and reaching under the bathroom door for me. It’s hard to get a moment of privacy!!)
Brian: That was a good game!
Me: Oh! Did the Cubs win today?
Brian: Do you know which teams represent Chicago?
Me: Yup. The Cubs and the Bears. ohhhh….Did I say the wrong one again?
“I love Sonic, mommy, daddy, Joshua and Gracie.” Kaylee.
(Kids are playing Kinnect Sports together. There has been a lot of positive affirmation; they are each other’s best cheerleaders! I also hear them say back and forth, “It doesn’t matter if you win, and it doesn’t matter if you lose. JUST HAVE FUN!)
Joshua: Do you love me, K?
Kaylee: No. I love Mommy and Gracie.
Joshua: That hurts my feelings! You should love me too!
Kaylee: When I’m 5 I’ll love you.
(I make the kids paint/ glue shirtless. Am I the only one who does that?)
Me: Why are you wearing your hat over your eyes and face like that?
Joshua: Because Julia wants to sit with new friends on the bus. Maybe she’ll think I’m a new person and want to sit with me today!
Kaylee: How old am I mom?
Me: Three and a half.
Kaylee: Ugh! Why am I always 3?
Me: How old would you like to be?
Me: (surprised) How did you know that?
Joshua: I saw you sign it. I know a little bit of sign language.
And I can hear a little bit too.
