Overheard this week.

After I told Skyler that I miss her and Reed whenever I'm not with them, she says:
"Then why are you always saying:  'Sam, could you please take the kids?'"

After I told Reed that if he didn't brush every night, his teeth would fall out:
"Then I'll just eat ice cream."

Reed, flipping through the hymnal at church:
"Now, which one is the Spiderman song?"

Skyler's good question:  "Mom... if the earth is round, how do you explain cliffs?"

Skyler to Me:  "I wish we believed in Barbie."  (we don't)

Skyler to Jackson (our dog):  "I'll let you out of your kennel as soon as you say sorry. Say it!"

Me to Reed:  "We do not pee in our boots!"

Sam to Reed:  "Manharts do not put their hands down their pants in the middle of the road."

Me to Reed:  "Do you feel bad about breaking my bowl?"
Reed:  "No. Actually I feel good."

Is it really only Tuesday?

Thanks for the morning laugh!!!!

I LOVE the honest and literal view of life for these amazing years.
I imagine when we are 90, we'll also be saying "I'll just eat ice cream." And maybe Reed will be telling Sam his same bit about middle of the road antics.

I love the first one. The answer, Skyler, is one of life's greatest mysteries only understood by those who have crossed over to the parenting side. AND then we don't really understand it we just GET it!!

Thanks for those! I'm still laughing over here!!

These are laugh out loud funny. I heard myself say to the girls today, "Maya! Stop putting your hands in your sister's bum cheeks!"

i love that i'm not the only person in the world who grew up in a family that doesn't believe in Barbie. I really didn't miss having her except on rare occasions. Now that i'm not so youngish anymore i'm SUPERGLAD that we didn't (and don't) believe in Barbie!

The hands-in-the-pants thing is so funny. The other day my four year old was doing the same thing.

Me: "What are you doing?"
Him: "I'm playing with my pride and joy."

PRIDE AND JOY??? I have absolutely no idea where that came from.
