I've been posting a lot to Facebook this week, but have neglected to post much here because we've been busy trying to sell our old house that has served us as a rental income home for the past 2 years but is now serving to drive me into the ground with worry and workload both. Life hasn't stopped, but I've only had time for compiling and writing little blurbs. That being said, I don't want to forget some of the sparkling jewels that have come out of my children's mouths this week, so I'm going to stick them here quickly for later reference.
For example, earlier this week Caleb was walking through our neighbor's home while we were visiting and while exploring took a moment to look through her hutch at some collectibles. After looking at it a few mins. he told our neighbor, "I really like your dynamite!" My neighbor and I looked quizzically at each other and then at Caleb, and she asked him, "what dynamite?" Caleb replied, "Oh you know... your dynamite. You know, like when you see something that's really neat you say 'it's dynamite!'" That boy cracks me up, and now I keep hearing his comment in JJ's voice from "Good Times"- "DY-NO-MITE!"
Then, just the next day, Caleb found me in the kitchen to tell me, "Mommy, I feel like it's yesterday!"
Me: "What do you mean?"
Caleb: "You know, Mom (rolls eyes) The day before this one."
Ryan: "Way to keep your Momma straight, Boy.
And then my final gem for this week:
Hannah's been bobbing about the pool all afternoon like this...
and so I asked her what she was up to when she floats in this position. Her answer: "It's my new swimming move, Mommy. I invented it. I call it [Mel's note: I swear I did not make this up, people] 'the Graceful Buttcrack'."
And then I died laughing. The end.
