Life with kids is ALWAYS an adventure. And I have 3 who are only 3 years apart. (yes, we're crazy.) This is my place to capture the craziness in all it's glory, because childhood only happens once. (thank goodness!)

When you get tired of reading about my kids visit my other blog all about ME!

Don't let your kids hear you say that!

I sing a lot at our house. Because I think life is a musical, just ask my husband. He'll tell you all about how I break out into random song and dance. He still giggles about my rendition of the dance of the plump sugar fairy, and no that isn't a typo.

Anyway, today I was telling Zoey to go get a diaper because she was stinky. She was sitting on the stairs refusing to obey. So I started sining to her "When my mother calls me, quickly I'll obey."

Well, I got to the end of the verse and she was still sitting there so I just started making up words to the tune. I wasn't really thinking about what I was saying and the words just started coming out and I guess my subconscious was trying to rhyme, because this is what came out.

"Go get a diaper quickly, go and get it fast. Because you are a stinky girl and I need to wipe your a**"

OOPS!!! Did I just say that in front of my kids? Oh yes I did. Wow!

Okay, now that you really know what kind of mom I am you may move on with your regularly scheduled lives.

Sounds like my house....when I say a mock, "Oh my!" and Jonah fills in the heck (at _least_ it was _just_ "heck") and then he tells the dog to knock it off all the time and slaps her face (not that we do that, but he's learned that the dog is just annoying so therefore be mean to her--ALL Justin's fault!!!!)
Anyway, those kids sure are sponges, we keep noticing what Jonah figures out on his own (sort of like your post about Adam!)

That's funny stuff. Of course, you said ASK. Right?

Man! I hope they weren't paying enough attention to repeat it later! They are little sponges, Saturday Moira kept saying gosh because she had heard someone say it.

I just glad you didn't rhyme something with "heck"...freakin' Utahns.

You're my hero. As the cousin-who's-not-like-the-rest-of-'em, I cheer for your rhyming-out-of-the-box talents.
You're just like aunt Shari. And shouldn't we all be.

Love you.

At least you're helping your children to learn to read by rhyming with them. It's not Mother Goose, but, beep, she's boring!

Is that like, "Do as I say, not as I do"?

Love it! Now I am just wondering what songs you sang to yourself when we were mission companions in Oroville...or maybe I don't want to know! ;)
