Out of the Mouths of Babes--October

10/14--I came downstairs wearing a purple shirt and hat.  Caroline looked at me and said, "Mom, you're purplicious!"

10/14--Part of Brandon's prayer tonight was, "Thank thee that we have such an awesome mom and dad."  Awwww...I think that was one of the biggest compliments I've ever received.

 I love this wheelie-riding boy.

10/15--This morning Caroline told me that in her dream last night she was a lollipop princess in Candyland.  Doesn't get much better than that.

 Princess Lolly

10/16--Whit, Andrew and I were playing "Apples to Apples."  For those of you unfamiliar with the game, there are cards with adjectives on them and you try to match a noun in your hand to that descriptive word.  Whit was the judge and the word was "Gigantic" and as a quick description underneath it said "huge, large."  Whit immediately said, 'Like Dad's head!"

10/17--Caroline's random observation of the day, "Sometime boys wear tannish-white."

 I think it's called "khaki."

10/17--When we asked Whit about recess at school today, she told us she played "Justin Bieber's Dog."  What's that?  Exactly what it sounds like--she and her friends would take turns pretending to be Justin Bieber's dog.  Interesting.

But she SWEARS she is NOT a JB fan.  Anymore.

10/20--When I was telling the kids that I was going to Time Out for Women this weekend, C asked, "How long do you have to be in the corner?"  Brandon, Whit, and I started laughing.  C waited a minute and then asked again, "No, really.  How long do you have to be in the corner?"

 Not THAT kind of time out.

10/21--I was patting Caroline's head and jokingly said, "Good doggy!"  She snapped back, "I'm not your doggy, I'm your husband.  Husbands are children.  And children are darlings.  And darlings are women.  And then they turn into animals.  And then baby dinosaurs."  Whoa.

 She lost me.

10/29--After the trunk-or-treat, Whit was eating a piece of candy and couldn't decide what flavor it was.  Caroline had a suggestion, "I think it's lemon fresh peanut doom."  

10/30--Whit has a deck of cards with questions about America.  On the drive to church, she was asking us some.  One asked, "Who said, 'Give me liberty or give me death?'"  C guessed, "Frankenstein!" 

Think she had Halloween on the brain?

 One elaborate balloon hat

How the girls would spend their time during B's soccer games.
Whit does NOT look comfortable.

Whit made herself a tree swing!
The cardboard only survived for a few minutes.
But the rope is still hanging in there.
And she uses it almost every day.


  1. oh my heck, caroline's story about the husbands and children and dinos... so funny!

  2. Your kids are great. They are so cute and funny!

  3. I think somebody should submit the flavor "Lemon Fresh Peanut Doom" to the Ben & Jerry's guys. They might run with it.

  4. OH YAY! Thanks for the great treat on an early November morning. My favorites were Justin Beiber's dog and Frankenstein. Where do they come up with these things? Oh the interesting life of kids - thanks for sharing it with us.
