After a two-year hiatus (during which two new members joined our family, which has much to do with my long absence), I am happy to announce that...I'm back! :) This blog is back on my priority list (it has been there in the past, believe it or not), so I will be updating it a lot more often.
I will be posting about some highlights from the past couple of years, but in the meantime I wanted to make note of some recent conversations we've had 'round these parts...
During breakfast one morning recently
Hannah: Mommy, what do bears eat?
Me: Hmm, they eat berries, and fish, and--
After Hannah's bath one night
Me: Oh Hannah, you smell so good!
Hannah: What?? I not food!
After giving me a big hug yesterday
Hannah: Mommy, you so pretty.
Me: Oh thank you, Hannah! That's so sweet to say!
Hannah: Yes. And I so pretty, too.
While laughing their heads off about something while in the playroom
Adam (catching his breath): What are we laughing about?
Hannah: I don't know...
Adam and Hannah (throwing back their heads): Hahahahahahahahahaha!
Coming into my room after having a bad dream
Adam: I had a really bad dream!
Me: I'm sorry buddy! What happened?
Adam: There was a big M&M, and he was a pirate, and he stepped on me and then stabbed me with his sword, and then he killed me! And then I killed him and ate a piece of him.
Me (trying not to laugh): Oh...
Tommy (without cracking a smile): So, was he a peanut M&M or a plain one?
Adam: He was a pretzel one. I ripped out the pretzel and ate it.
After hearing Hannah quote the bad king from "Night at the Museum 2"
Adam: Hannah, you shouldn't copy that guy! He doesn't follow God's commandments!
Here a few of my favorite words/phrases from Hannah's vocabulary:
What you funny to for? = What are you laughing about?
Toweyeduh = Cinderella or gorilla
I pardemood. = I tooted.
glapes = grapes
I cake a ___? = Can I have a ___?
Yadies and Gemmamin! = Ladies and Gentlemen!
These kids definitely keep us laughing... :)
