Doorknobs and kittens

June 25, 2008

Jacob was in the laundry room waiting to leave for the store. He was holding the doorknob on the door out to the garage. Charlotte, the new kitten we got, was in the laundry room too. Jacob said, "Man, I'm getting used to a lot of new stuff: Charlotte, this doorknob..." (I (Daddy) had recently replaced the doorknob). He tried to think of more stuff, but couldn't, and just walked out to the van.

It's like a whole other language

June 16, 2008

At the Grizzlies baseball game Jacob got one of the opposing teams autographs. Micah was asking on the way home what the players name was. Tyler and I told him we didn't know. I said that autographes were sometimes hard to read. Jacob said, "Yeah, like they speak our language but they write different."

I think I'll take that spot now.

June 14, 2008

Benjamin was taking a nap on the playroom couch and then I saw him asleep on the playroom floor. I asked Micah if Ben had gotten off the couch and layed down on the floor. He said, "No, I put him there so I could lay on the couch." He said this very matter of fact.

Mmmm, tator totters

June 4, 2008

Tyler had just taken part of a teeter totter out of the shed and Jacob asked what it was. Tyler told them it was part of a teeter totter that he was going to make for them. Jacob ran inside and came back out with Micah and said, "Look at the tator totter Daddy's going to make for us!"

Arm wrestling

June 4, 2008

Jacob and I (Daddy) were arm wrestling. He beat me a few times and then I started beating him. After beating him the second time, he said, "Ok, only one more time, you're knocking the wind out of my arm."

Number blind?

June 1, 2008

Ben, Jake, and I (Daddy) were playing Barrell O' Monkeys and it was Ben's turn. He picked up some monkeys and started counting how long his string of monkeys was. He counted them wrong to which Jacob said, "I heard someone say Ben might be colorblind, well, I think he's number blind too."
