'Til My Sides Hurt: From the Girls

Hazel telling me her plan for the day:

"We should take 'Biah's jumping rope and tie it to a tree with Jackson...with his shoes on. And we'll tie him to a tree."


I made cookies one day and told the kids they could have one after dinner. A little while later the girls snuck into something and I told them that they lost the privilege of  having a cookie after dinner. Of course they were disappointed.

During dinner the kids kept telling me how good the food was and how I'm a good cook. Hazel took that moment to tell me, "Good cooks make cookies for good kids and bad kids."

She was so cute about it that I told her, "Hazel you are right. But I don't have any bad kids." I changed my mind and let the girls have a cookie and they paid me back for sneaking by working for me.


A land surveyor was walking by our house and Hazel exclaimed, "WOW! What a HONK!"


When I asked Hazel if she had a mess to clean up she responded, "No complendo!"


Hazel was sick and Amelia wanted in on the attention. She said, "Mom, my froat hewts!"

When I asked her where her throat was she said, "Wite hew" and pointed to her tummy.

TOO cute!! Ali gets us on the cuteness (and shrewdness) factor on things like the cookie story, too. It's a tough world out there for parents...
