Pain Killers

Dustin with a little too many pain killers in his system, "Hey it's kind of hard to open my mouth."

"Open"  little laugh

"Close"  more laughing

"Open"  harder laughing

"Close"  no more talking, just laughing

5 year old boy to me, "Do you know why I'm tired?"

Me, "No - why are you tired?"

5 year old, "Cause I always have to stay awake."

Tooth Fairy

Letter my daughter wrote:

Dear Tooth Fairy,

Plase spare me the tooth container.  (She put it in a little white tooth container and wanted to keep it.)  And please give me extra money.  Thank you!

Please don't throw away my tooth I will look in the garbage in the morning.
Thank you

Sharing the Fun

I look out my window and what do I see? 

My son swinging holding a chicken on his lap!

Something tells me this isn't such a great idea.

I'm still on both sides

You can shed tears that she is gone, or you can smile because she has lived.
You can close your eyes and wish that she'll come back, or you can open your eyes and see all she's left.
You can remember her only that she is gone,or you can cherish her memory and let it live on.
You can cry and close your mind, be empty and turn your back.
Or you can do what she'd want:  Smile.  Laugh.  Love.  And live.

My note:  remember to cheer loud for those you love and eat cookies!!!

Radio Spot

My daughter is in a radio commercial!

Couldn't figure out how to embed the mp3 file into the blog, sorry, here's the link to download if you want to hear. (If you know how to put the mp3 file into the blog, please let me know! All the info I found on it didn't work very well ... user error probably.)

From the Mouth of Babes

Every now and then a gem is dropped into your heart.  I think it's more often than we realize or even pay attention.  Here's one that I paid attention to:

I have the joy of watching two 3 year olds here, a boy and a girl.  They play great together.  Their style is joking and teasing and chasing, all that fun stuff.  I also watch this adorable 4 year old boy.  Who really wants to engage but just is more sensitive and at times doesn't appreciate the teasing so much.  While playing, the 3 year old girl tells the 4 year old boy, "Just laugh!"

Gotta remember that, "just laugh!"

Gotta love streaming on Netflix.  It's so great!

Today for nap time, or quiet time / tv time for the older kids who are bound to fall asleep in 1/2 hour, we're looking through the kid shows on netflix.  A Rainbow Bright show is there just in case you didn't know that - a 3 year old girl yells out, "Wait!  That's my favorite show!  Even though I've never seen it ..."
