Hannah just prayed, "God, please help everyone to know that You are there, so that they don't have to be afraid of life."
Lamont just told Bethany that his coffee has a restraining order against her! *laughing hysterically*
Bethany: "I'm getting big and growing so much, so I'm changing into a mama!"
From Bethany along with her tight goodnight hug: "Do you know why God made you? I do. So that you could be my special Mummy."
The wind is picking up and I hear Ashley whispering to her sisters, "We better watch out, because I think our house is going to blow away in a potato!" *long confused pause* "I mean, we're going to blow away in an alfredo!" *even longer pause* "Hey Mummy, what's it called when the wind goes in a circle and it can pick up a house??"
Just out of curiousity, if your three year old tells you that you are a duckling...is that a good thing?
From Hannah's sunshiny face this morning: "Mummy, happiness that lasts is called JOY!"
Note to self: telling Hannah to just ignore her sisters' attempts to distract her from the job I've given her results in her loudly proclaiming, "Hey guys, I'm ignoring you! Just so you know, I'm ignoring you! Ok? I'm just ignoring you!"
Hannah: "I really need to get a job and start making some money!" Me, startled: "Oh really? Why do you need money?" Hannah: "So that I can give it to kids who don't have enough food, of course." *heart...melting...*
Bethany: "Can we please have cookies for breakfast?" Me: "Nice try, sweetie, but--" Bethany, quickly: "Why don't you just think about it for a while, Mummy!"
Our littlest baby girl kicked her daddy's hand for the first time tonight for his birthday - yay!
Bethany: "Mummy, I'm going to grow up and be a mom with kids, but if you want I can still be your little girl, too!" Oh, yes please.
Hannah just came out of the playroom for a drink of water and I asked her what she and her sisters are doing in there. The eyes start shifting back and forth and she says politely, "Um...I don't think you...really need to know that right now, Mummy...."
Hannah, with a fierce goodnight hug, "I'm so glad you're not a vegetable or a llama!"
From a very indignant Bethany: "Mummy, Ashley is being SO mean to me. She's treating me like a carrot!"
