More Laughs



Just a few more funny things that I want to remember about the kids. I know I'll be glad I wrote these down.

Today I was pulling Natalie in the wagon and she told me she wanted to get out. I stopped as she climbed over the side. She came to the front of the wagon, grabbed the handle from me and said, "Get in mom." Seriously. This girl cracks me up.


Yesterday Nate was talking to Jansen on the phone and asking him about his day. Nate asked him who he had gone swimming with earlier that day and Jansen said, "My wise friend James. Which is funny, because that's the name of an engine."


Also yesterday. Jansen is on the floor doing something strange with his feet. He says, "Mom, guess what I'm doing?"

Me: "I don't know. What are you doing?"

Him: "I'm exercising myself. To make myself 5. So that I can climb a tree like Booker."

Me: "You're making yourself 5?"

Him: "Without birthdays."

You are so smart to write these moments down. You think you will never forget them...but you do. It's always fun to read them and remember!

Hah! So Jansen's found the magic way to make yourself older without birthdays... if he could figure out a way to make himself *younger,* he'd be a millionaire. :)

And "wise?" I love hearing words like that coming from small people.

I would like Jansen to figure out how to reverse the process of aging instead of enhancing it. If any child can do it, he can. Would you mind asking him for me?

Annie said...

Yay your sister comes today! I hope you guys have so much fun. And you know that your two kiddos are just the cutest.

I wish I could exercise myself to be younger! That'd be AWESOME! I think Jansen is on to something here!
