Overheard From My Children

My girls say things that cause me to go into hysterics or clench my teeth and sigh. I'm going to start keeping track. The first is a little anecdote:

A couple of months ago, I loaded all the girls up and took them to meet Brian. They were all heading away for the weekend, but I didn't want to tell them they were visiting their grandparents. So I told them I was taking them to the gypsies. Lily was absolutely horrified. Not that she knows what the gypsies are, but she was nearly hysterical. I, on the other hand, thought it was hysterically funny. (Don't start.) Another time on the road somewhere else, Lily asked where we were going. I heard Darcy's sweet, little voice barely above a whisper telling Lily, "Gypsies! We're going to the gypsies...Gypsies!" Again with the hysteria, Lily's and mine. It's now a semi-funny joke to everyone when we saying "We're going to the gypsies" and Lily stands there with her hands on her hips demanding to know, "Are you kidding with me?"


"Mama, your kitchen is a mess. Do you want me to clean it up for you?" Apparently, the health department lives here in the form of a mouthy four-year old.

"Why don't you take a shower?" And the hygiene police.

"Mama, you look like Mr. Snee from Peter Pan."

See? That's why God makes 'em so cute. So we won't kill 'em.

Gotta love this one. Daniel looked at me a couple weeks ago and asked if we were going to have another baby. He said it right after he looked at my almost-40-had-5-babies belly. His daddy proceeded to teach him what you are never allowed to say to a woman!
