TSW?T: Farts and Orphaned Caterpillars

They Said What? Tuesday:  Volume 8

My 3-year-old daughter...
"Morgan's lovey fart?"
...her very puzzled reaction after my prayer of being thankful for "Morgan's loving heart."  I don't know if she was surprised by the fact that I said 'fart' or the fact that I was thankful for it.

My almost 5-year-old son...
"Your bedroom just hits the spot.  Your bedroom is where I should be because it feels just fine."
...his argument for why he should be in my room instead of his room at bedtime 

"Goodbye little caterpillar!  I hope you find your Mom! I love you!"
...the emotional goodbye to the caterpillar we had been checking out for a grand total of 2 minutes on our walk

"We did not take a nap and we still have a good attitude.  Isn't this a funny day?"
...if by 'funny' you mean completely out of character and only true for the 3 minutes before that sentence came out of your mouth, then yes, yes it is.  The funniest day ever.

No matter what they say, You Are a Good Mom.

  1. No Matter is Right, cuz, my dear, they will say some stuff that will knock you to your knees with emotions heretofore not experienced In Public. Love you and thanks for this affirming blog.

    1. They sure keep us on our toes, huh?! :) Thanks for your encouraging words!!

  2. The caterpillar comment...total sweetness!

    1. I always love it when they bring 'relational' things (Moms, Dads, brothers, sisters, etc.) into the conversation when they are playing or talking.

  3. Love this. I so wish I would have written down the things my kids said. Some of them we remember, but not all, this blog is a great place to remember and share...these made me giggle!

    1. Glad they provided a few laughs. :) I'm always amazed how many things I even forget within a day! Never a dull moment as a Mom, huh?! :)
