Out of the Mouths of Babes

There are two little girls who I've been watching since they were 6mo and 2yrs old...they're now 5 and 7yrs old!  I recently got the chance to stay with them for a weekend and again this week, and it was a blast!  They are two of the funniest girls I know.

When I got them from their aunt, they were covered in tats, and couldn't stop drawing on themselves and me! (It was a stamp and marker tattoo set they had) 

When we were at McDonald's there was one point where we were all cracking up, and they said to me, "You're a fun mom!" (Let's hope when I have kids they think the same (: ) 

We went to Applebee's one night, and the 5yr old held up a spoonful of melted ice cream and said, "Look! When ice cream melts, it turns into milk!" (If only that were true!) 

When I put on my makeup in the morning, they told me that I finally looked like "real Barbara" and when I didn't have it on that I looked like "fake Barbara." 

And of course, we played a lot of school, the 7yr old just finished first grade, and she made a pretty awesome schedule for our day. 
As a teacher-ed major, all the classrooms I've been in have a schedule posted (great idea, by the way) and it's interesting to see how well the kids actually pay attention to it!

Here's one of my favorite games to play while waiting for food in a restaurant.  Tic-Tac-Toe, but use forks/knives/spoons as the grid, and different sugars as your easy, all the materials are there! 
(I don't recommended using knives unless you feel your children will be safe enough around them)

Have you heard anything funny from a young one lately?

  1. Love your new blog header. And I really enjoyed this post. Smart and funny girls. What a great relationship they have with you and great memories too.

    My daughter (who's 3) saw me go outside barefoot and she said "Mommy we can't go outside with just our feets on!" And when we were putting on her pajamas she said she didn't want a shirt. She wanted to sleep with just her tummy.
    Have a great Sunday!


I love comments...and I try to reply to all by e-mail, so be watching for me (: (unless you're a no-reply blogger, then I'll comment back here!)
