Things heard around my house: august 2012

“Did you get hurt?”  I asked Joshua.
“No.  I’m  99% ok and only 1% hurt.” was his reply.

“What kind of party do you want for your birthday mom?”  Kaylee asked, 2 months in advance.  We brainstormed some of the things I like:  daisies, penguins, chocolate, scissors, blankets and cupcakes.  She wrote down a plan, just like I did for her party.   It never crossed my mind that my daughter could plan a party for me….sweet!

“You have the best mommy.  I love Grammy.”  Grace told me one day. 
Grace:  (Screeching) There’s a spider on the pink hooker!  

Kaylee:  Where?

Grace:  On the pink HOOKER!!

Turns out the “hooker” is a pink plastic hanger.

A text to Brian during one of my (unusual) 10 hour work days:

Me:   Busy day, everything is running late.  Can’t get home.

Brian:  It’s ok. I took kids to Strong Museum.

Me:  There’s nothing like listening to HIV and STD presentation to make me appreciate being in a monogamous relationship. 

Brian:  LOL


“Mom, I’ve got good news and I’ve got bad news for you.”  Kaylee announced out of the blue.  “The bad news is that I haven’t been able to change Gracie’s diapers until today.  The good news is that now I can!  I will change all her wet diapers and you can change all the poopy ones.”   (Kaylee is 5, Grace will be 3 in a few months and hopefully potty trained soon.  And *THAT* will be good news!)IMG_3186

"I made you some carbs and coffee." I said, throwing a plate full of French toast on the table.  In one month, Brian lost 13 unwanted pounds while *I* lost none on a low carb diet.


“I think it’s funny we have four bedrooms, but the entire family is sleeping in our bedroom”  I commented one morning when I woke up to find one kid in our bed and the other two sprawled on the floor.


“I don’t like when he waggs me!”  Gracie wailed about my mom’s dog.
