While playing with Thomas toys...

Maggie kept repeating this phrase - "Spress commin froo!"

I started a kids worship CD to help the kids get going one morning.  Maggie usually wakes up very well - happy and cooperative.  In her sleep-drunk waking stupor, she blurted out; "It's God's birthday." and carried on with that for a bit.  As I was leaving their room to allow them some wake-up time, she informed me; "We can't see God 'cause he's invisible right now."

It seems that at least every month or so, I go through a time where I'm just completely overwhelmed by my "to do" list and wish for nothing less than a day without children where I can concentrate on getting stuff done  without the distraction of motherhood.  At these times, I do recognize that a day is coming where I will miss the busy-ness of motherhood while simultaneously recognizing that today is not that day.
So, I was complaining again to my mom about this and wishing we could afford a day of daycare so I could have a day to myself.  Jack piped up; "I want to go back to Deb's house." (Deb has a nearby daycare I've used on occasion) I explained to Jack that he would likely be bored as most of the kids his age would be in school, and he'd end up spending a day with a bunch of little kids.  His response; "No I wouldn't.  Maggie would be there and she's my best sister."  Sometimes, they say the sweetest things .....

Just this side of Christmas

After explaining to Jack that he would have to eat breakfast by himself if he didn't get started on his morning duties, he appropriately asked; "Mom, what's stalling?"

Playing with the Dr. kit, Maggie insists to Jeffry that the blood pressure cuff is a bandage.  He insists it is not. So she comes to ask me.  I inform her that it is a blood pressure cuff.  Not bothering with minor pronunciation details, she goes to Jeffry and informs him it is a "blood catcher".

Maggie was on the potty one evening.  Jack really had to go, so he went ahead.  He peed on her.  (Ick!)  We gave him a time out.  Not too long after that, she declared; "Jack din"t pee on me!" then she jogged to the bathroom where she told Jack; "Jack, you din"t pee on me.  Good job! (clapping)

The Little People Nativity scene is out.  I was arranging it while the Littles were having lunch.  I put the animals in the pen and set up the people.  Maggie got out of her seat, took the donkey out of the pen and informed me; "Da donkey hav'ta stay out 'cause Mary rode this one."
