Soaking in a tub full of bubbles:

"Aaaaah, this is so relaxing... Abi! Come in here and sing me a lullaby!"

Abi passes by the bathroom door, dragging bobby (her blankie) and sucking her thumb and gives him a look that says, "in your dreams", then walks away.

"AAAAAABIIIIII, come and sing for me NOW!"

"NO Naynay"

"Abi, if you don't sing me a lullaby right now I'm gonna beat you up!"


The other day, I was getting the kids their lunch while they sat at the table, discussing whether they thought our next baby was going to be a boy or a girl (and I'm not even pregnant but not a day goes by when they don't ask). Abi said that she'd like a girl to which, Nate emphatically replied that he'd rather have another brother.

I asked Nate what he would do if God gave us a girl. He said God wouldn't because he'd pray for a boy. I asked again, what he would do if God still gave us a girl and he said, "Then we'd know it was the devil's work!"

Oh my! I love kids' comments, sometimes. My middle daughter (3) admitted the other day that her misbehavior was due to her "trying to be like Lucifer"! (not the devil one, thankfully!)
