Heard in our House….

As both of the boys get older, the funnier the things they say seem to be!  I love listening to them and finding out how their minds work.  But most of all, I keep getting blown away…sometime by the amazing joy in their hearts, sometimes by the shocking bluntness children have, sometimes out of horror when I realize they are being tacky, but mostly I get buckled over with laughter at the funny things they say!  But that laughter has to stay inside usually, as neither of our kids like to be laughed at…I cannot blame them there!


When Noah was so sick recently he kept waking up in the nighttime with really high fevers.  When the fever would get close to 105 the poor thing would start throwing up.  One of the nights I was in there rubbing his back and I was just so sad he was feeling so ill.  I guess Noah could read that on my face.  The sweet child said after getting sick again “Mama, I’m so sorry.  You are working so hard to make me feel better.”  Wow.

While Noah was napping that next day I had Andy color Noah a get well picture.  Andy was so proud of it and took it to give Noah when he woke up.  Noah said to Andy “You are my most special boy.  You made me a beautiful picture.”  It was so sweet and I could see the pride just beaming off of Andy!

Tonight while making dinner and setting it up, Noah was getting very excited.  I had some gluten free fish sticks, corn, tator tots and apple juice…you know, seriously epicurean stuff here:)  Anyways, I put candles on the table and turned the lights off.  Noah was so happy, he ran over, hugged my legs and said “Mama, you are the prettiest girl I ever seen.”  A girl can seriously handle those kind of comments daily:)

We have a couple of words that are not necessarily BAD words, but we just do not think they are too nice coming out of little boys mouths.  Two of them being stupid and shut up.  It seems that ALL the rated G movies have them somewhere in them.  Noah recently has been through a faze where he would grab the remote and shut the movie off it he heard one of those words.  Saying ‘that is not a nice movie.  I just do not want to watch it!’  I so appreciated that, but when it ended up we had only Super Why left to watch, he and I sat and visited about the meanings of those words/phrases and how tone and context are why they are not good.  Anyways, he now stands very firmly in front of his shows when those words are said and shakes his little pointer finger and says ‘that’s just not nice at all!’  He also understands the rules we have placed on only wanting them to watch G rated movies.  I guess he has seen us at Red Box or looking on Netflix enough searching for appropriate G rated movies.  Anyways, recently Josh was looking for something on Netflix and Noah said “Daddy, can I watch that?  Is it rated G or POG?” :)



Can say “Allie!”  Instead of Awwie  :)

We watched the Polar Express recently and were talking about our upcoming trip and ride on the Polar Express and our recently past trip to ride Thomas the Train.  Andy is so excited and runs around saying “I ride Thomas.  I ride Po Express!”

My sweet little Andy.  He really has this unbelievable gentle personality.  Mainly when his big brother is not around, but it is just so contagious and endearing.  Whenever he is getting tired he comes running at me saying “uddle me, Mama, uddle me”  (uddle =cuddle) ….ME=a big melted heap upon the floor:)

Today I was asking Andy…’What does a dog say?’ he said ‘ruff ruff’…’what does a cat say?’ he said ‘meow meow meow’…’what does a pig say?’ he said ’Boink Boink!’…’what does a horse say?’ he said ‘giddyup!’ and ‘what does a goat say?’ he said ‘don know?!’  It was so cute, his answer to the pig, his seriously funny one to the horse and the fact that he tried so hard and came so close to saying ‘don’t know!’

I have a tendency to say “Oh my gosh” a lot.  Andy has now started saying “O dosh, O dosh” when he is surprised or startled!

Recently Andy had a little runny nose, he was laying in bed with Josh and very clearly said “Daddy, my nose RUNNIN” 

e-ooooo = pick me up!

e-up =cover me up with a blanket!
