The mind of a 3 year old

Tonight the girls were asking about how daddy and I met, and how he proposed, etc....  Genna thought it was neat, but Bella thought it was too mushy for her taste.  As she walked away, Isaac said "Hey guys, wanna talk about married, and kissing, and dancing stuff?!?"  To which Nahshon responded, "NOT ME, I'M A CHRISTIAN!"

What can I say, the kid's got values.

kidney stones

Painful. Inconvenient. Painful. Time Consuming. Oh, and painful. How can something so small be so agonizing?  And, since they won't come out on their own, I have to go in to have them broken up on Monday morning. (the same day I start college again)  This sucks.  There is no nicer way to describe it. It sucks. (oh yeah, and hurts)

She's a firecracker

Recently at dinner, Isaac announced that when he grows up he plans to have 6 daughters and 6 sons.  Here's the conversation the following day:

Isaac- Actually, I'm going to have 12 daughters and 12 sons!  How many kids is that?  (yes, the entire conversation started with the word "actually", as if we were still in the middle of last night's dinner talk)

Mom- That's 24 kids.

Bella- (popping her head in from the next room) Ha!  Good luck with that! You're gonna need 2 wives!

Mom- A man can't have 2 wives, it's against the law.

Bella- Yes they can, I saw it on cable.

*for the record, please note we do not have cable, and have not had any TV service for a while, so...... you have some explaining to do grandma!

budding romantic?

This morning when I got out of the shower, Isaac said, "You take showers every day.  Why do you take showers everyday?"  I told him, "I liked to be clean and smell nice, that way daddy will kiss me!"  Isaac gave me a silly grin and said, "I like kissing stuff and married stuff.  When I grow up I'm going to have my own car, my own house, get married, and go to COLLEGE!" (he was really excited about college)  Suddenly Elijah piped up from behind (very casually, but very seriously), "Isaac, you want to meet a wonderful girl, and have all your dreams come true?"  Isaac answered with a very enthusiastic yes and they started discussing their future plans with their wives.  At that point I had to go take care of Noah, but oh how I would have loved to hear the rest of that conversation!
