2/6--Whitney's question of the day: Why do they have a saying "cute as a button"? I think buttons are dumb and dull.
Much cuter than a dumb ol' button.
2/7--We were reading one of W's books today about winter animals. I was questioning the information and said, "Polar bears can eat whales???" Whitney said, "Yea. Well, they have to have leftovers."
2/11--Caroline's compliments to me today included, "That shirt is cute. You look adorable. Just like me."
Thanks, sweetie, but I am nowhere near THAT adorable.
2/13--As church was ending, there were just two kids left in the nursery with me--Rachelle and my own sweet little Caroline. I asked them to help me clean up before we left. Rachelle listened and started picking up toys. But Caroline just sat there watching. To encourage her, I said, "Look at what a good helper Rachelle is!" She responded by clapping her hands and cheering, "Good job, Rachelle! Keep going, Rachelle!"
Can also dance while eating an apple.
2/17--I was up in the bonus room with Caroline and we heard some strange noises outside. She said, "That sounds like a coyote...or a dump truck." I didn't know those two sounded anything alike.
2/17--Out of the blue, Care Bear told me today, "When I grow up, I want to be Viva Las Vegas." Interesting.
Maybe Cirque de Soleil will take her?
2/17--Now that we've had our little glimpses of warm weather, when we have even a semi-cold day, Caroline thinks she needs to get all bundled up, including a scarf and hat. When she was done wearing them today, instead of cleaning them up in the closet, she hung them from doorknobs. When I asked her later to clean them up, she told me, "No. I'm decorating."
2/18--Instead of asking to play Hide-and-go-seek, lately Caroline has been asking us to play "Hide-and-go-eat" with her. Sounds like a game for girls with eating disorders. Or maybe just hungry toddlers.
I bet she wanted to hide-and-go-eat some of these
kisses when she was helping me make cookies.2/23--I was changing Care Bear's diaper after her nap and she told me, "When I grow up, I'll change diapers."
I said, "You'll change your baby's diapers?"
She said, "No, I'll change YOUR diapers."
Thanks for volunteering, sweetie. When incontinence hits, I know who I'm calling!
And since the big kids are outgrowing their funny sayings, I'm including bonus pics of their last week doing cheerleading and basketball at school.
Wooo--look at that jump!
Her cute little cheer squad.
She loves her medal.
Worst team picture ever.
Still working out the quirks as I figure out how to use my camera. :)
Finding an open teammate.
Check out the coach in the background.
Diving for loose balls.
Trying for the fast break.
Sportin his medal.
I was glad that Andrew could help coach this year.
He hasn't coached since he's been bishop.
But we realize our days of parent-coaching with Brandon are numbered.
Just one more year of elementary school after this.
