Maybe it's just me, but I think it's rather strange that I can't find 1 of the 3 phones we own but have found 2 hammers.

Gotta love it

So I actually sit down for a few mintues and soon there are 2 little ones my lap.  (Glad I have 2 legs.)  So the little girl cuddles into me and her hand goes onto my tummy.  Instantly her head springs up and she looks at my tummy while she lifts her hand off.  Oh yeah, her mom's about 8 months along and I know exactly what this little girl is thinking.  Sure enough, she looks up at me and says, "Tamra - do you have a baby in your tummy?"

OOHHHH, there it is.  I knew it was coming yet still to hear them ...

How long?

A four year old little guy asked me today, "How long ago did you marry Dustin?"

So I tell him.

And he tells me, "That's a lot of years!"

When I Was Little ...

Three year old little guy tells me today, "When I was little, I was in my mom's tummy.  (pause)  Then she pushed me out.  (pause)  Then I peed on her."

In our backroom there is a soft older couch that is free for the kids to climb on, jump on, nap on, - use as a jungle gym in general.  Well a little girl right now likes it for her nap spot.  Today when my husband put something on it, she glares and yells at him, "Hey!  That's my bed!"

Confidence is a good thing

One of my piano students is passing off a song today when he goofs.  He stops, grins & shruggs, and tells me,
"I messed up.  But we know I'm gonna be great."

Delivery Man

The delivery man comes to the door and instantly there are several little people of varying heights surrounding me, including the baby I'm carrying, and his eyes just go bigger and bigger while it sinks in what he's seeing.  Ha ha ha, he wouldn't come right out and ask if they were all mine - the heights are just off enough that it could be possible.  I never did answer the unasked question that was written all over his face.  When I closed the door, I couldn't hold the laughter in any longer.

It has literally been 5 years since I've ordered checks, and alas, the time to reorder has come.  The quality of the pictures aren't so great because I blew them up a bit so you can see them better.  Check these out:

Caption:  FOCUS - You may be closer to your goals than you think.

Caption:  MOTIVATION - Nothing unlocks your true potential like an 800 lb. killing machine.

AMBITION - Dream big... Just not while you are hunting.

CREATIVITY - Do whatever it takes to be outstanding in your field

With little ones, one thing that's guaranteed is a lot of questions.  What... why... how... all a part of learning.  Today I got asked one that I don't think I've been asked before.

"Where did I get my butt?"

Rock, paper, scissors

After loosing a few rounds of rock paper scissors, one little guy says to the other little guy,
"This time you be paper and I'll be scissors."

Tick Tock

For Christmas, my in-law's gave us a beautiful wall clock.  It's almost 2 feet in diameter and, I think, very classy.  Today during lunch, a little one points to the wall and exclaims, "Look!  Someone left their watch on the wall!"

Ice Cream

Four year old little boy, "Ice cream is yummy!"

Me, "Yes it is!  What is your favorite kind?"

After a few humms, I ask him, "Do you like a whole lot of different kinds?"

His response, "Vegetable.  Ya, I like the vegetable one."
