...the mouths of babes!

I made dh a special treat (special because we aren't eating any sugar or white flour right now) for his birthday last week. A chocolate chip cookie pie - his favorite! The kids were excited about giving him something he loves.

Reagan (4): "Ohhhh, Daddy!! Mommy made you a pie! You are going to give Mommy tooooo much love!"
(Yes - dh hubby was pleased with THAT idea for sure! Hubba, hubba!)

Reagan - praying b4 eating her unattractive lunch options: "Dear Jesus, please get me out of this scratching so I don't have to be on this special diet anymore. AAAAmen!"
(I wish she weren't allergic to so many foods either! Strange to hear her use the word 'diet' at this age. I think that her friends at pre-k got to have ice cream today.)

And Jefferson (6) wants to know what everything means these days!

J:" What does 'gel' mean?"
Me: "It's stuff that you put in your hair to hold the shape."
J:"No, I mean what does the word 'gel' mean? Daddy says that a trashcan is called "trashcan" because it is a can that holds trash. So what does 'gel' mean?"
Me: "Uhhhh...."

(Okay - we're only in 1st grade and he's already asking me things I can't answer!)

Oh the laughs that they bring with just a few innocent words! Join Not Before 7 for more!

I think that last one earned a "go ask your father" - Ha!

You should tell him to go ask Daddy why it's called trash and a can. Must get to the root of it. :)

Yes, we will pray she will get out of scratching! So funny.

Love the prayer about the diet! Poor thing. Gotta love those "why" questions... I especially love it when they ask, "Mom, why is that big truck turning left?" ??? Did the strange trucker file a flight plan with us that I don't know about?? ;-)
