Recently Overheard, April 26, 2015

I love to laugh!
Laughing is my favorite!

My kids do a great job of cracking’ me up.
And if you’d been around our house recently you
may have overheard the following:
——————————————
“Whoever invented pizza needs a hug!”

“Mom I like it when your hair has the gray showing.
It just proves that you can look young and still be old;
it lets the beauty out, and the cuteness. Because old people are cute.”

“Mom can we please please have lunch?? I’m so hungry that
I feel like my stomach is punching me from the inside!”

“Nutty Bars are just over weight Kit Kats!”

“My teacher has one of those old fashion projector
things w/the clear paper on it that shines in the wall.”

“I only want two or three kids when I grow up. Probably only 2 cuz
if they’re like I was when I was little I’ll only be able to handle two!”

“I don’t like waitresses because they are not supposed to do
that kind of work. It’s for gentleman.
They’re clearing off the tables, but Boys are supposed
to clear the table.”
(my heart melted!)

“What do you call a shoe that won’t stay tied? A shoeNanigan”

“What if Google goes off the internet like Groove Shark did?
The world would end!”

“Did you see those hot dog plants growing by our pond?”
(Cat tails)

“After watching a science Video about earth-
Earth is not home to everyone. Our home is heaven and
we’re just visiting earth.”

“Look at the announcer in this sports show-
he looks like a picnic blanket threw up on his shirt.”

“Mom, you’re nice and you’re full of hospitality!”

“I’m the Easter Chicken”

Recently Overheard, Feb. 12, 2014

Years ago my friend told me it would probably be hilarious
to hear the stuff that was said at our house. I agreed.
Here’s a few of them…

(While driving two hours out of Detroit:)
“Look! There’s CORN! Mom, are we in Iowa now?”

“Mom, I’ll just come over here and sit by you.
Cuz at church they teach us to sit by the unpopular people. ha!”

“I’m so glad they invented something called LEGOS”

“Wow! Look at all that nice toilet paper!
Our bums are gunna be happy and dance!”

“Did you hear what I gave Courtney for her bday? I gave her 18 dimes in a raisin box.
Well actually it was 16 dimes and four nickels cuz I didn’t have enough dimes.”
(Where did you get the raisin box?)
“It was in one of my drawers. and who doesn’t like their money smelling like raisins.”

“If Science had a face it would be a serious one.
If Social Studies had a face it would a smirk.
If Language had a face it would be happy one.
If Math had a face it would be a mad face.
If Ed Tech had a face it would be sobbing.”

If you’d been around our family in recent weeks you would’ve
heard the following statements (along with many, many others)
that my have cracked you up, amazed you or left you wondering.

“I do NOT wanna eat at that restaurant.
It’s like having someone punch you in the stomach for a hour!”

“God gave me 3-D polka dot on my shoulder.”

“Oh… I have to get up really early for work tmrrw.
Being an adult is hard! I just wanna be a dog!”

(We’ve always been a MAC computer family, but this
fall we added some PCs to our family, too.)
“These PC computers look like the old play Barbie
computers we used to have.”

“My stomach is full of those terds.”
(“Curds honey. Cheese curds.”)

ICK! There’s a spider near your shoulder!!!
OH, well, let’s just put it
on that giant zit on Mom’s face,
cuz it’s babies are probably inside!

(While listening to a Muppet Movie (but not being able to SEE it):
“Mom, these annoying voices are exactly what Middle School
boys sound like!”

“No matter how sweet takin’ or romantic a boy is, at the end of
the day he’s gunna home and make fart noices. ugh”

That’s What He Said

If you read my post yesterday you know that our garage
was broken into and our daughter’s awesome bike was stolen.
That happened on Monday.

Fast forward a couple of nights…
It’s bedtime.
I’m praying with our boys as I tuck them into bed.
We prayed for all the usual needs and safety…
just like any other night.

Then my 6-year-old prayed, “Jesus, help the person
who took Zoe’s bike to know that they should ask You
to forgive them and ask you into their heart.”

 

Psalm 8:2
“You have taught children & infants
to tell of Your strength,
Silencing Your enemies
and all who oppose You.”

Uhhh, it looks like alien poop!

 

Can we run through the sprinkler? Can we run through the sprinkler? Can we run through the sprinkler?

 

Wait? This is homemade ice cream? It seems more like a … um… milkshake or something.

Me:  “OK, seriously!  Who left their candy wrapper just laying on middle of the floor?”

Child #1: “Not me. My wrapper is right here.”

Child #2: “Mine is on the coffee table.”

Child #3: “I chucked mine on the floor.”

If only we were that honest with God about our own sin.
True Meekness means to live without defensiveness.
