Keepsakes: a sense of humor, mommy humor

A smattering of the things I find funny at our house lately....

Annette: Charlie only has one E in his name.
Me: That's right, and you have two E's in yours.
Annette: Will Charlie get two E's when he grows up to be a big boy?

I want to bottle up those sweet moments when I can see her or Charlie's little brain working and making connections.(Here they are watching the next door construction. Who knew it took so many rocks to build up a lot??)

Isaac put a hot dish under what he thought was warm water. Not too fun to clean out of the garbage disposal, but made me laugh. AND taught our kids a little lesson in science:)


Charlie will now randomly smile and say 'eeeese' when he thinks he's being cute and photogenic. I can't help but comply and get my camera out.
Here at Jason's Deli....

He also posed when he was half way up one of the jumpy things at jump zone and said 'eeeese'!

He went up and down several of the big ones--including this one--to my surprise. Little sam was doing well too:)

Annette loves babies. She keeps saying she will have a baby sister one day that she can be the boss of. Ha.

She would only do the small ones last time, but loved doing all of them on Friday. Yay for a fun, successful, wore-the-kids-out, play-date!

Charlie says no-no to annette now, when she goes to time out or something. We laugh. But not so much Annette:)
Some other new words he says: shoe, water, mess (his favorite word), pool, nigh-night, and truck and car. I love when they hit this lightning fast language learning phase!

Isaac's mom had a date with Annette the other day, and I got to spend some one on one time with my boy. Barnes and Noble....we both love:)


I found this bit of creativity on my shower wall.'s just pencil. Or it wouln't be nearly as funny.

My cute boy loves to get inside things and climb things. Like the dryer. And the top of the table. Scary. And he really, really loves to crawl under things now. He gets under his crib, our bed, my hanging clothes, the coffee table. But then gets mad when he can't fit under the couch.

This next one can be sooo frustrating it's funny. Almost funny. Annette can throw a fit. Big fit. BIG time. Most of you have witnessed one. Sorry. We are a constant work in progress.

I can't even remember what this was about. Maybe having to leave her paci in her bed. Or not getting the sippy cup she wanted. Or because she wanted to paint her toe nails purple that exact second. Oh my she can be a handful.

But to be fair, I'll show her being her sweet self. Reading, Cooking, and crafting seem to be her three favorite things lately.

I haven't been sharing my craft ideas lately on purpose. I'm storing them away for BLOOM(Building a Legacy Out Of Motherhood), aka Moms N  More.  It's a Bible Study that will start up again this fall. Comment if you're interested in joining, and I'll help you get signed up:)

While playing in the sprinklers and water spout my children are as happy as ever. We've ended up doing this during that tough hour before Daddy pulls up into the driveway. It truly is the simple things in life!! 

I saw this cute poem in a vintage-ish baby book at Savers. I love the sweet words.

...Begin with simple lessons,
On which they love to look,
Flowers and pebbles, and birds on wings....
Wouldn't thou a skillful teacher be,
Learn then, this alphabet.
Seeing the world through the eyes of my children is a humbling and wonderful experience. Makes me think of a verse:
Matthew 18:3
And he said: "I tell you the truth, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.

That would be great name inspiration for a blog. Maybe if I ever rename this one, it could be 'growingyounger' or 'ourchildishways' or something like that.

I just love that verse. You know, one of those verses that you really connect with on a deep level??  It reminds me that it's okay that I am always a work in progress.
