Out of the mouth of my babe

Story #1
Today while trying to negotiate for something Caleb wanted and nagging over and over I finally said, "Your BIG MEAN MOMMY says no!"

He looked at me shocked and said, "you're not my big mean mommy, you're my big NICE mommy."

Im smiling inside that my 4 yr old thinks I'm nice even when all I say all day is NO (or so it seems).

Story #2
We were in the car listening to President Uchtdorfs talk and he was talking about Hope. I didn't think Caleb was really listening and so when we were almost home he said, "Mom do you know what the ultimate power is?"

I was expecting some answer like He-man since he uses his sword and says, "I HAVE THE POWER!" I just said, "no what it is Caleb." He beaming looked at me and said, "Its Hope!"

Story #3
At dinner tonight John asked Caleb how old he thought Daddy was and Caleb said, "15"
Then he asked how old he thought Mommy was and Caleb said "40!"

Story #4
I couldn't help myself because I found this to be SO funny! I got Caleb all ready to go get his flu shot today and he was ready and brave. When we went in the nurse asked for who was going to go first to sit on my lap. Caleb said "I will!" I'm not sure he was registering at this point what a shot was. He has siked himself up so much that he was not prepared in the least bit. So she jabbed it in and he just crumpled to tears. I gave him a big hug and told him he was brave and he looked at me with anger in his eyes and said, "Yea, but Mom SHE (glaring at the nurse with disdain in his voice) hurt me!" He then got down and shot nasty looks at the nurse the rest of the time we were there. She was kind of a raunchy nurse but his shock and indignation just killed me!

Lastly here is a cute picture of the kiddos. I made these when I was like 6 or 7 and I totally remember loving this art project in school. My mom laminated them and kept them of course. I got them out this year and the kids love to hide behind them and chase each other around the house "scaring" each other!
