Conversation(s) With My Kids

It's no secret that I like to blog about the funny things that my kids say and do.  I don't capture these funnies to embarrass them later in life or even to embarrass them now; these are the sweet things that I want to remember many years from now when they are grown and gone.  These are the moments that make all the hard stuff worthwhile.  I'm not being dramatic; I'm serious.  In this house, we are either laughing or crying. And, as you can imagine, the laughing is much better.

A couple of weeks ago during bathtime, I had both twins in the tub.  Girl Twin was just singing her little heart out, as she has been doing a lot lately.  Sometimes, I can identify a song from her daycare or from the radio.  But either way, she has really started to sing to us a lot.  It's sweet.

So, as they were bathing--

Me:  Sissy, you are my good singer!  

Boy Twin:  Yeah, and I'm your good pooper! 

Boys will be boys.  (And, he's right.)

We had another funny going to school last week.  When we are captive in the car, I often feel like I'm in front of a firing squad, with each kid peppering me with "Hey, Mom!" or "Mom, Mom, Mom?", each fighting for my attention.  I've gotten to where I actually call on them when it's their turn to talk.  Otherwise, they are talking on top of the other and I can't field any questions.  And, of course, they always have such important things to say.

Boy Twin:  Is that Katy Perry on the radio?

Girl Twin:  Hey mom!  I saw a red ball in the grass!
Big Sis:  Mom!  Justin Bieber's IN JAIL!!!


  1. I had an idea last year that I would start recording our 'home from school' conversations a la Taxi Cab Confessions -- and do a whole series about the intellectual brilliance that goes on in those precious minutes. I love your soundbites! And it makes me wanna dust off that idea and let his little voice tell the story!

  2. Love, love, LOVE these conversations! Thank you so much for sharing them. I know I miss so much and I hate it! Looking forward to seeing all of you soon!!!

    Love to all...

  3. I love the wild things kids come up with. I suppose their minds are just as random as ours, but with no filter!
