TSW?T: Mr. Rooster and Grand Valley

They Said What? Tuesday:  Volume 11

My 3-year-old daughter...

"Don't give up, Mom.  You can do it!"
...her encouragement to me while playing Cootie.  Alas, I finished with ONLY my Cootie body, not even a head, while both my kids totally waxed me.

My now 5-year-old son...
"Look!  It's the Grand Valley!"
...while watching fireworks on the 4th of July.  In some circles, this may also be known as the "grand finale," but apparently not in ours.

"When I grow up, I wanna be a Daddy so I can help take care of kids."
...while my husband was helping my daughter get ready for bed.  Per my husband's request, I am not typing the sentence that came directly after that.  Unless enough of you are curious enough and comment about it on this post.  Then I may just have to let it slip...

"It's a whirling pool!"
...while stirring the water in his sand bucket with his water blaster.  Personally, I kinda like whirling pool better than the traditional "whirl pool" it sounds somehow much more fun.

"Mom, my skin is getting tan.  It's tan just like yours!"
...maybe the sweetest thing he's ever said to me.  Or anyone has ever said to me.  Those of you who know me can stop laughing right now.  Those of you who don't me, you should know the only thing close to a "tan" I get is when my millions of freckles decide to join sides.  

"My hair is sticking up.  I look like a rooster!"
...upon looking at himself in the mirror and seeing his cowlick before church on Sunday.  He proceeded to tell the greeter at church to call him "Mr. Rooster."  

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

  1. "the grand valley" hahaha - I love kid quotes!

    1. They definitely add a little humor to our days, don't they?! :)

  2. I like that he told the greeter to call him Mr. Rooster. My nephew was absolutely obsessed with Michael Scott from The Office for awhile, and he introduced himself to strangers as Michael Scott. My sister would always have to say, "Um, no, actually, his name is..."

    1. Hahahaha!! The best part of that being Michael Scott as a real name. At least I didn't have to explain anything with the whole "Mr. Rooster" thing!

      That sounds like material for an episode of The Office. I am now having a little moment of sadness now while I think about The Office being officially done now. :(
