Funny Ha Ha Friday

I forgot to add the funnies to my previous post about getting busted. πŸ˜‰

Here are a few funnies from the last week with the kids:

McKenna was running to the boys’ room and she said “Lets go Dylan! You’re tagging me!” and squeeled and ran off. hahaha!!! Kind of like a few weeks ago when she was running/hopping and I said “McKenna I said no running” and she said “I’m not, I’m hopping hip” (skipping) heehee Oh the things kids say. πŸ˜‰

I was putting the kiddos down for a nap and Aidan lost his paci one day. This is what happens….he has it and tries to hide from me (b/c he’s not supposed to have it) and then he loses it somewhere in the house. Normally I take it from them and put them up, but this morning he left it in his bed like he’s supposed to so I didn’t think about it again. Anyway, I’m looking for this paci and getting IRRITATED b/c he can’t sleep without it and I can’t find it. I said “This is so stupid!” while I was looking through toys and stuffed animals. Then, from his crib, he says, “mommy, we don’t say soopid. Soopid is a mean.” hahaha!! I love when they correct me.Honest. I do. It means they know it. πŸ˜‰

Today the boys were taking their bikes to the backyard from the garage and Aidan was pushing his bike and said “I have BIIIIIIIG muscles!”

Earlier this week I caught Dylan and McKenna playing “baby.” She was trying to nurse him. That was a fun game to walk in on! I had to explain how only mommies and babies do that sort of thing. πŸ˜‰ haha!!

Also this week, Aidan found “cat poop” under the kitchen table one morning. We don’t have a cat. Upon further examination I realized HE had pooped under the table. The night before. After bath. When we let them run naked for a few minutes. How this went unnoticed you ask? It was late, the lights were off, and we had already had dinner with no reason to go back to the table. I can’t believe I didn’t notice it. I did however SMELL it that night, but thought they just were tooting. Next time I think I’ll follow my nose. πŸ˜‰

Dylan to McKenna: “Do you know what gooerish means? It means when I don’t like something”

Dylan: “Mommy! Aidan says HE is Uncle Nate and he’s not!”
Me: “Well it’s okay if he wants to pretend to be Uncle Nate”
Dylan: “But IIIIIIIIIIIII want to be Uncle Nate!!”
Me: “You can be Uncle Nate too”
Dylan: “NO! I want Aidan to be Aunt Teresa!”
He was literally in tears over this. Hysterically crying. haha!


Funny Ha Ha Friday

So as I lurk through blogland (or blogosphere, whatever) I notice that a lot of people do a “wordless wednesday” or a “thankful thursday” or like my friend Tam at InProgress does, a “Fill In Friday” (which is really fun!) and I really like that they do this. Kind of simplifies things for when you can’t think of something to blog about, or for when you are thinking of too much to blog about, which happens to be the case for me most of the time. I have been told more than once that some of my blog posts are little novelas. πŸ˜‰ So today I was thinking about my blog and I thought I wanted to revamp a few things, and having a point to each day kind of strikes my fancy. πŸ˜‰ Yes I said “strikes my fancy” just like I also say “draw the boys a bath” to Jake, to which he says “seriously? did you seriously just say DRAW them a bath?” Yes. Yes I did.

Anyway, I came up with a Monday through Friday theme and I have to say I am kind of excited about it. Plus, I think in the next few weeks (2 months about) when our lives will SO extremely chaotic with moving and everything that entails, it will be good to still post a blog w/o thinking much about it. I’ll save the weekends for my outpours. Jake is home then and that will give me quiet time. πŸ˜€

So this is what I came up with:

Mouthwatering Monday: For all of my easy family recipes that we love. They are so great I am always passing them on to friends. In fact several of my cookbooks are loaned out right now. I must get those back. πŸ˜‰

Talk To Me Tuesday: I’ll post a question that has been on my mind that I wonder what everyone else thinks about. I often wonder what others think about things, or if others think about the same things. Tuesday though could also be Top Ten Tuesday, just depends on my mood. I haven’t decided yet. haha! πŸ˜‰

Wordless Wednesday: I like the idea of this one and enjoy looking at others’ wordless wednesdays. πŸ˜€ I see it all over blogland.

Thankful Thursday: This one really blesses me to read on other blogs. It reminds me to be thankful for the little things, not just the big things. One that I read said “tiny hands patting my cheek” and I instantly felt all warm and fuzzy thinking of when Owen pats my cheek or when Dylan rubs my arm or when Aidan runs his fingers through my hair. Lots to be thankful for! πŸ˜€

Funny Ha Ha Friday: The boys are CONSTANTLY saying funny stuff. I am sure that I can find something to add every friday here. πŸ˜‰

So to start it off today Dylan said the most hilarious thing to me. I couldn’t stop laughing. I was talking to him about moving to North Dakota, b/c he seems very nervous about it. He is always asking to see pics of where we are going and lately he has been very clingy and even climbing into our bed several times at night, just since we found out. He even asked once if we were going to leave him behind! 😦 This is how our conversation went today:

M: Dylan how do you feel about us moving to North Dakota? (after we had talked about it a bit)

D: I don’t like it.

M: you don’t?

D: No, I don’t.

M: Why not? Does it made you sad?

D: It makes me feel gooerish.

M: Gooberish?

D: no, gooerish

M: GOOerish??

D: yeah, gooerish, not gooberish. (B/c there is clearly a difference)

M: Oh. Well what does gooerish mean?

D: Gooerish is when I don’t like something.

M: Oh, so you feel gooerish about moving? You don’t like it?

D: yeah, it’s gooerish.

Okay then. πŸ˜‰ hahahahaha! I love my kids! heehee

Hungry Dylan

Posted on


“Mommy, I am still hungry, just like the little catapiwer” (b/c of the book The Hungry Caterpillar)

“Mommy, I fink I’m about to get hungry” (he whispers to me EARLY in the mornings while I am still in bed)

I am sitting here going through GOBS of clothes and thinking about when Dylan and Aidan were babies. I am setting aside my favorites that all three have now grown out of. I want Jake’s mom to eventually make me a quilt with scraps from all of them. As I was examining a Hungry Caterpillar pajama set to see if it was “worthy” πŸ˜‰ I remembered the “catapiwar” comment from Dylan. It is SO cute that he says it. I love it.

Quote of the day….

Dylan to Jake tonight while they were playing:

“Daddy! If YOU jump you will break the whole house!!!”

hahahaha!!! That’s awesome.

Dylan’s Alphabet

Posted on


I’m a little pee


This was Dylan’s version of the alphabet tonight at bedtime! hahahahaha!!!! How cute is that?

Just thought I’d share……

Dylan and Aidan are playing with the cardboard tubing from a paper towel role and Dylan held it up to his eye and said “ARRR Matey!” and I said “buddy you crack me up!” and that reminded me of something…..
A few weeks ago he kept saying to us “You crack! You crack me!” and that was all. We couldn’t figure out why he was saying that until one day I said “You crack me up!” and then I realized….. “YOU CRACK” is his “you crack me up” hahaha! So funny the way their little brains work.
Oh my gosh, right now they are playing “baseball” with the tubing and a squishy ball and Dylan is telling Aidan “throw it on the bat! ON THE BAT! You gotta throw it ON the bat!” hahahaha! Oh my gosh. I said “no bud, I think you are supposed to hit it with the bat” heehee
Okay that’s all. I need to do this more often b/c I have a feeling once we get to Minot, the grandparents might start reading the blog to catch up on the kiddos. πŸ˜‰

Okay I am really bad at remembering what the boys say, and they say some pretty hilarious stuff. So, I’m taking a few minutes to think of a few….prompted by what Dylan just now said. LOL
He brought over a banana to me and said “Mommy, is this banana right?” I said “You mean RIPE?” and he said “yeah ripe. Is this banana right?” hahaha!
One night we had lasagna for dinner here about two weeks ago. He kept calling it “desagna” I don’t know why he just did. He can say his L’s pretty okay most of the time now, but for some reason lasagna starts with a “D” to him. He said “Hey MOMMY! Desagna starts with DOG!!” hahaha!
“Hey Mommy! (everything starts with HEY MOMMY) Fourty starts with FOUR!”
“Hey Mommy! Twenty starts with twenty!” Oh man that one made me roll. LOL
Or this one was HILARIOUS. “W starts with walrus!” hahahaha!!!
In school that is how they learn letters. Words that start with a certain letter they focus on for that day. So he is always saying that other words start with other words. So funny.
Like “Hey mommy! Aidan starts with Apple!”
“Dog starts with Dylan!”
Aidan likes to talk about monsters a lot. He likes to SHOOT monsters a lot. He comes up to me and WHISPERS that there are monsters and he is going to shoot them. Have you ever heard a two year old whisper? It is the funniest thing ever. It makes me laugh so hard! I love it.
One thing that DOESN’T make me laugh so hard…..when he is mad he says “shut your mouth!” Okay I MUST CLARIFY HERE: He did NOT learn that from us. 100% did not. Couldn’t have. When Jake and I went to Lincoln City back in November the boys were shuffled around between my mom, grandma, and my sister….and when we came back, that was the first thing we heard him say. WONDERFUL. πŸ˜‰ We are working on that. BUT, Jake and I secretly giggle at it sometimes. Bad I know.
Aidan is also the lover. He loves to hug and say “I wuv you mommy” I love how he says love. WUV.
He loves Owen too. He gets really close to his face and whispers “hey baby hey baby hey baby it’s okay it’s okay it’s okay shhh shhh shhh” heehee Then he pats his head, kisses his cheek and said “I wuv you baby Oweeeeen”
Ahhhhh, I love to hear my kids talk….SOMETIMES.
