A few things overheard in our house over the last few months...

Calder, age 5
"I like your necklace, Mommy.  And I like your whole body."
"I just got a foreheadache."
"I just learned something from my brain."
"Tessa loves daddy a billion and she loves you a million."
"I hope this house is as clean as possible when I get home!"

Mommy: "How was your day?"
Calder: "11% good."

And...I hope I never forget that at age 5, he calls handcuffs "handcoppers".  I love that! 

"Oh my mackeral!"
"Mommy, take your baby off your milk."
"One day, Christian put carrots on my plate.  That not nice!"
"Grrrrrrr!"  (When giving bear hugs.)

Tessa:  "Mommy, I want to see your booboo."
Mommy:  "I can't show it to you because its inside my head."
Tessa: "Oh.  Maybe one day you'll take off your hair and I'll see your booboo."

"I don't want to go home!  I don't like our home!  I don't like my room!  I want to go to the White House!  I want to sleep there with the Easter Bunny!"

"Eeny meeny miney mo,
catch a tiger by his toe
If you holler, by his toe
Eeny meeny miney mo. "

At age 3, she calls McDonalds "Old McDonalds" and breakfast "breaksist".  She calls a lock a "locker" and a hook a "hooker". :)

And, my most favorite recent Tessa story requires a little bit of back story.  Calder is a super deep sleeper, so he still has trouble staying dry at night.  We recently figured out that we should just wake him up before we go to bed to have him go to the bathroom one more time.  Before that, we were changing A LOT of sheets. So, one day I was changing the sheets on OUR bed.  Tessa walks in and says "Oh. You guys peed?"

The Three Piggy Opera

Kindergarten teachers really know how to appeal to parents. Case in point: The Three Piggy Opera. Near the end of the school year, Calder's class performed this play, and we totally dug it.  It was beyond cute, and really funny too.  He was a little nervous, but so proud and excited to perform with his friends.  We can't wait for more productions like this!

Here's Calder with the first book he ever read completely by himself.

We love the Mo Willems books. The kids think they are absolutely hysterical!

Little Miss Curious

These days, Little Miss Curious is getting into everything.  The pantry, dishwasher, stairs, dresser drawers...

But her favorite of all is most definitely the refrigerator! You can't take your eye off of her for a second in the kitchen, or she'll be scrambling over there, pulling open the door, and grabbing everything off the lowest shelf.

Welcome Summer!

It's hard to believe the hot summer days are already upon us. We welcomed summer with a trip to the pool on opening weekend. All three of my water bugs loved it!
