...the mouths of babes!

Lincoln has baffled us by choosing to speak, after 28 months of nothing but our names, star, and moon.  Here are some of my favorites from his grinning little face:

"Rockabye baby in the tree top, when the wind blows the cradle will rock" (I kid you not - from no words to this! He loves songs!)

"Kraut" (he loves saurkraut)
"Beet Kuh Vahs" (he loves beet kvass too)
"Baff" (bath)
"JayJay ant RaeRae" (J and R's names)
"Moo meat pleasssse" (More meat please)
"Read uh book?" (My fave!)
"Dom nose?"  (Dominoes)
Adam (4yo): "They're gonna make a baby!  They're gonna make a baby!"
(He loves the making of the baby 'robot' put together by parts from box in the movie "Robots")

But here's the MacDaddy of the week that I must journal for her sake when she calls me about her mischievous children:
Reagan was caught in the nursery of the church we visited last weekend, stealing mini animal crackers.  These are NOT allowed on our food plan and she also taught Adam how to steal in the process.  She was reprimanded and seemed to take her punishment rather well.  When we returned home, she quickly ran for the bathroom and insisted that she didn't need any help with her long dress.  She was impatient with how long it was taking me to wash my hands and leave so I was thusly clued into some form of deceit.  Her usual m.o. is to try oi hide an 'accident' so I asked to see her underwear (which she was trying to hide from me as she sat).
And low and behold - what do I find?  Not wet underwear but a large handful of mini-animal crackersIN her underwear!!!  Stashed away from the church nursery since she didn't have any pockets (and clearly we are starving her in our disallowing of such tempting treats).  I literally had to duck my head out of the door so she wouldn't see  me choke down a laugh as I called dh to come witness the scene.

Have mercy - I don't know if I will survive this child!  Goodness gracious and deary me oh my!
