This and That

This will be pretty random but hopefully you'll enjoy it anyway.



We were riding in the car the other day and Eliza Claire piped up, in her very serious voice, with "Mommy, this is a dirty song! I burst out laughing. We were listening to Veggie Tales Campfire Songs. Why was it dirty? Well because it was skipping, of course and we have talked about about that if there is dirt, like fingerprints, on them they don't play correctly. I just hope she isn't going to school and telling her teacher that she is listening to dirty songs with her Mommy.



Ruby was playing some kind of pretend game yesterday where her Daddy was dead and because of that her sister was giving her a kidney. Huh? Where did that come from?


Eliza Claire informed me yesterday that bears eat parrots, apples and pears? No clue where she gleaned that information. I'm sure a bear would eat a parrot if it saw one but found it humorous that in her world that was the bear's main diet.


While playing in the back yard this week, Ruby decided to strip. I don't know what this girl's deal is but when she goes outside it isn't long before she feels the need to be naked. I'm so glad we have a six foot privacy fence because I don't want to know what the neighbors would think if they looked out and saw my daughter running around in her birthday suit.

It still shocks me when I open the door and find her naked. I asked her to put her clothes on. She could not locate her underwear. We looked all over the yard and never found them. I wonder where they are and if we will find them or if the dog has eaten them.


One night recently Eliza Claire woke up at 4:30 am screaming. What did she need? Well, she wanted to flush the potty! Yep, you read that correctly she was screaming like she was in pain an all she wanted was to flush the potty. No, we haven't started potty training so she isn't stressed about that.

I convinced her that the potty was sleeping and that she could flush the potty when it was light outside.

Earlier in the week she has woken up at 6:00am wanting to go potty. When she is awake I can not get her interested in sitting on the potty, but if Mommy is asleep, well then, the potty is much more alluring.


Ruby has developed a band aid addiction. I'm not sure why or how, but she must have at least two band aids at all times. When it is time to take them off, to keep from developing a rash from them, she insists on new ones in new spots. I used to be very strict about No Blood, No Band Aid, but somehow it has become easier to just give the girl a band aid than deal with a 30 minute fit.

And by band aid, I mean NexCare bandages - they are in my mind the best band aid ever made. They stay on much better than the regular ones and are truly water proof.


Self Portrait

As I type Charlotte has snatched my camera and is taking pictures of herself.


Have I mentioned that I have already decided that Charlotte and Ruby will never be allowed to go anywhere alone once any of them hit the age of 16? And they will never be allowed to live together once they leave home? OK, maybe if Eliza Claire goes along to talk sense into them but otherwise no way! I can only begin to imagine the trouble they would talk each other into.


I'm sure I can think of more funny things the children have done this week but I'll stop for now.

I love the randomness. I can only imagine the number of occurrences that happen per week in your house simply by having such an interactive group.

Haven't tried Nexcare, but I swear by Coverlet for when they get bigger. The best butterfly (fingers) and 4 wing (kneecaps) bandaids around. One thing athletic training taught me was to be a bandaid snob.

Well I am off to put a very tired guy off to bed. He has his head down on the coffee table.

I have to ditto Jill about loving the randomness.

Brenna went through a stage of "bandaid" MUST HAVE. I think Cameron did too, but that's a little fuzzier.
