Jacob was getting dressed for church with his Luv Cub (toy bear that whines for hugs and food, etc.) next to him. I (Tyler) walked in the room and he said, "This Luv Cub keeps bothering me!" He keeps on asking for hugs and stuff while I'm trying to get dressed." I quickly pointed out that he should now know how a parent feels.
We were driving to Nana Byn and Papa Ron's house for Sunday dinner and the boys were watching the Book of Mormon DVD in the van. The story about the Nephites escaping the Drunken Lamanites was on and Micah asked what "drunk" meant. I told him that when people drink alcohol they can get drunk and it makes them act stupid and do weird things. He was quiet for a while and then asked if Adam (Aunt Lindsay's boyfriend at the time) drank alcohol. I said, "Yes." and Micah asked, " Is that why Adam did all those big splashes in the pool." Jacob then asked why Aunt Lindsay brings Adam with her evrywhere. Micah said, "She doesn't." That was the end of that conversation.
My kids are always making me laugh. I don't want to forget the funny and sometimes insightful things they've said, so a few years ago I started keeping a book of these things. I wish I would have started it earlier, but better late than never! I hope they can make you laugh too.
I am a happily married mother of 4 beautiful children, 3 boys and then a girl. My husband Tyler and I were married in November 1999, we had our 1st child November 2000, then another November 2002, and yet another June 2005, and then one more in January 2008. Life is pretty good.
