These wilds, I tell you true- they are funny! They are sensitive and wise and say the absolute best stuff. While I may have a terrible memory and am pretty quick to forget, I've been trying to write down a few- to hopefully remember someday.
So here goes. . .
Zain was quizzing my Mom about why she has a christmas tree still up, and she was trying to explain that it's not just a christmas tree, She said- "it's uh, well it's a," confused and yet so badly wanting to help he says "What is it, an oak?"
Isaac- "Everybody thinks I'm a girl." True story, he's just so stinkin beautiful! Even if we shaved all his hair off I think people would still ask.
Aussie was reading a supposed inspirational poster about parenting hanging on the wall at her piano lessons- the list had all sorts of rules- take them to the movies in their pajamas, laugh often, bake cookies, you know the type. She finished reading it and said, " that's crazy! You do what you can the best you can." Amen sister, Amen.
While watching Andy Griffith (or Andy Giffins as they say) Zain mentioned how pretty one of the girls was "but not as pretty as you mama, you have that long blonde hair." Ha, that sweet boy, never wanting me to feel less.
Eleanor "Yeah" Ok, I get it, that doesn't seem like a big deal to you, but trust me, after months of only hearing "MO" its a welcome reprieve!
When telling a story to the kiddos one night, I said "When the moon is full I turn into a special kind of Mom-" I was getting ready to describe how I get flying powers or how I can spit snot balls, when Isaac said "you're always a special kind of mama." and I melt.
Aussie telling her friends that she was excited because I was cooking "toe food" Ummmm, well, it's tofu.
