One mom's attempt at finding good in every day of this chaotic world.

There are always emails going around that have cute quotes from little kids.  I think I got one today about “butt dust” or something.  Anyway…  you know what I’m talking about.  Just like Bill Cosby’s “Kids Say the Darndest Things,” we get such joy out of a child’s misunderstanding of the world.  

We’ve been trying hard to teach Mason how to tell time.  Well, that might be a little lofty.  Mostly we’ve been trying to teach her that she cannot get out of bed in the morning until she sees a 6 in the first spot on her clock.  I thought that she would try to get around this rule by saying she saw a 6 at 5:56 or getting other numbers confused.  But she quickly learned this rule, and like clockwork, she has been coming up to our room at 6:01 on the dot for the past few days. 

I was really proud of her this morning because I was up with Cooper at 5am, and she still did not get out of bed.  She finally came out of her room after 6am.  When I told her how proud I was, she said “The 6 took a long time today, Mommy.”  It cracked me up.   I can just imagine her lying in bed watching the clock and waiting for the 6.  So that’s my “kid-ism” for the day.

She's so mature these days.

She's so mature these days.

On a similar note, Cooper has learned a new phrase.  “Uh oh.”  He loves to say this so much, he has started the dropping game just so he can say “Uh oh” every time.  Drop a sippy cup – “Uh oh.”  Drop a piece of waffle – “Uh oh.”  Drop a princess – “Uh oh.”  It’s pretty darn cute.  (Except for the fact that my back is aching with all the picking up I’ve been doing!)

How about I drop this notebook?  Uh oh!

    Great pic of Mason! Can’t wait to see them both (and you and Jeremy!) soon…

    It’s funny that we are trying to get the same lesson across to Colin. “You may not leave your room until you see 7-0-0.” Some days it works, but more often than not, he decides that he is sick of waiting. We even found him in Christopher’s room at 6:30 am after having built himself a very elaborate train track around the crib and rocking chair. We were not pleased, but the track looked really cool. I am wondering if I just need to give in and say 6-3-0 is ok. Man, why can’t he be a sleeper inner like me?
