This past weekend was no exception. Here are a few snippets of things seen and overheard at our house:
While reading a book, I let the kids play in our room. After a few minutes, I decided to see what they were up to.
While playing the Wii with some friends, Addi asked if we could play the swimming game. Justin said, “Addi, do you like swimming?” Addi looked at him like he was nuts and said, “It’s not real swimming. You don’t wear goggles.” [insert eye roll here]
“Addi, don’t stand on the kitchen table.”
“Sam, don’t stand on the kitchen table.”
“Christmas ornaments are NOT baseballs!”
While I was doing dishes, the kids kept themselves busy. Building another house. IIn the living room. Lucky us.
“Who stuffed these six toys inside our speaker?”
“Addi, Santa’s watching you!”
Addi: “Oh no Mommy, he wasn’t watching me do THAT.”
Jay: “What’s Sam eating?”
Me: “Oh, gum.”
[long pause while I played my game]
Me: “Oh crap, she can’t chew gum!”
Me: “What’s Sam eating?”
Jay: “Oh, toothpaste.”
Me: “Um, that’s not toothpaste.”
Jay: “It’s not?”
Me: “Nope. Diaper rash cream.”
Is it any wonder why napping is one of my top three activities?
