This week I have to say I have found much joy in my children. I wasn't going to blog about them, because yes, there is a part of me that is embarassed, but at the same time it's super funny and Ryan and I were dying when the words came out of Finn's mouth.
First Setup: I was telling Ryan how my visit with my new visiting teachers went and I mentioned that Finley was a little bit rude during their long 1 1/2 hr visit (I mean when is it ok for me to kick them out?).
Ryan: Finley, were you rude during moms visit with her visiting teachers?
Finley: Because I didn't like them.
Ryan: Why didn't you like them?
Finley: Because they were ugly!
Ryan: What? Because they're ugly?
Finley: Yeah, they were so UGLY and I don't like them!
Ryan: Would if make you sad if someone said you were ugly?
Finley: Mmm. Noooo! (then he looks at Ryan as if to say, "Yeah, like that would ever happen.").
I don't know where he learned the word ugly. I don't even know if he knows what it means. I swear I don't go around pointing out the ugly people to my kids. Thus the slight mortification on my part. But, still pretty funny.
Second Setup: We are upstairs and Ryan is changing Finn's pull-up. Bentley was upstairs with us and he was sniffing at everything. I have about 20 tutus all finished and hanging on the stair railing. Bentley has been know to eat chiffon/tulle (remember this blog: Dear Life) and I said:
Cynthia: Uh-oh, Bentley is getting all curious and sniffy. Let's hope he doesn't go nuts.
Finley: I got nuts huh!
We've never used that word in that context with him. It's always "peepers." I honestly think he meant to say, "I go nuts." But it was super funny.
So these are just a few of the things that I am grateful for. My hubby & kids who give me much to smile about :)
