The Birds and the Bees

Today I had an interesting conversation with my 4 year old. She was playing with her brothers and all of a sudden she laid dawn and said.. "ohhhhh my tummy hurts, someone cut open my tummy and get my babies out".
Nathaniel in his wise 9 year old way told her "that's not how babies come out!"
Brianna having watched to many baby shows with me answered "Yes they doooo!"
So I had to interrupt I said "Some mommies need help getting their babies out but I didn't"
So Brianna asked "well then how did you get your babies out?"
I answered, "Well I pushed them out"
Brianna looked at me for a second, then her eyes got big and very innocently she asked "Did they come out of your mouth??"

It was so hard not to laugh, but I did explain to her just where babies come from... and then she ran and told her sister.... Kindergarten should be fun next year.... :)

An open letter to the writers of Dinosaur Train

Here is a letter from my 7 year old to the writers of the coolest PBS kids show ever!

Dear people who write Dinosaur Train,
It is my favorite show ever! I want you make it into a movie, with bonus features. My favorite character is Buddy

Because he has hypotheses.
Thank you for making my favorite show ever!

Here is a conversation I had with my just turned three year old...
To set the scene she was sitting on my lap while I was sitting at the computer desk..

Caitlynn : "Mama why there 2 O's on this?"

Me : "on what?"

Caitlynn: " On this" (she points to the keyboard)

Me: "where are the 2 O's?"

Caitlynn then pointed to the O and the zero right above it.

Wow I had to try to explain that the zero was a number and the O was a letter....
To my little girl who just turned 3 two days ago...
She is such a little smarty :).

I wasn't able to get the words on... But I can't even describe how much she loved it :) and that is really all that matters.Ahh her stash of goodies :)
Cute doggy huh? Check at walmart for clearance valentines day toys ;) That is one of the really good things about having a little girl that close to valentines day. They love the hearts and cute girlie things :)

She was so happy

Happy Valentines Day!

I hope everyone had a fun and love filled, Happy valentines day yesterday. I know I did, But mine started at 6 am with my 2 year old running into my room yelling Happy Valtines Day!!!!! I LOVES YOU!!!!!! very sweet but mommy isn't a morning person.Well since we had a week off of school instead of buying valentines we mad them for the boy's classmates :)

I could NOT get Alex to be serious
And yes I know he spelled from "frum".... he kept insisting it "sounded right that way"
Nathaniel was all business picking out what shapes went to each classmate.
They can't wait to pass them out :)
And Brianna spent a very long time working on hers. She made it all by herself!
Happy Valentines day!!!

Conversations from the couch

Ok so we have been snowed in for a little over a week and while the kids are doing good I think they are getting a little to "close". Here was the conversation yesterday that made me laugh so hard I couldn't breath.


Me: "what happened now"

Alex: " Brianna bit me!"

Me: "Brianna why did you bite Alex?"

Brianna: " I was trying to talk...... But his elbow was in my mouth."

Alex: " Well don't you know better than to talk with someone's elbow in your mouth"
(as I ran out of the room laughing I hear)
Brianna: "oh yeah ... sorry"
Alex: "It's ok just don't do it again"

We finally saw a plow!!!

And we can see the road again! Which means hubby was able to run out for groceries today and for the first time in a week he will be able to go to work tomorrow. Yayy :)
Look at how much the plow piled up!
Enjoying being able to run again :)
Checking out the backyard for the first time in a while
Caitlynn wanted to but then decided she would rather get down
I like this picture of her on top of the snow :)
Alex being crazy

I missed the picture of her at the top sliding down and the batteries in my camera died.

We got snow..

Lots and lots of snow...

a little over 2 feet of snow
I'm tired of shoveling
hehehe Brianna got stuck :)
Really stuck.. she had to reach down in the snow and hold her boots on while trying to walk... :)

Caitlynn wouldn't go near the big drifts of snow but she would help me :)

busy girl

They also tried to clean off daddy's car.. It didn't go so well LOL
The boys found the perfect snow fort made by the plow!
They stayed over there for quite a while
He told me he was making a hibernation hole...


and our path.... it doesn't look like much but it is a start LOL.

oh and they are calling for more snow Tues. Wednesday and Thursday... and again next weekend. School is canceled Mon. and Tues. I'm pretty sure that they won't be going back for the rest of the week!
