Things kids say.

The kids have been cracking us up lately with what their little brains come up with. Thought I'd share a few. :)

David was eating his favorite candy Hot Tamales, candy of the gods he says. Skyler who hates them pipes in; no they're hot so they are candy from hell. Olivia immediately interrupts - Dear God, please punish Skyler, he hates the candy you made but I like it.

As I was brushing Olivia's hair one morning she asked me if I remembered being pregnant with her. Of course I do crazy girl I replied. Not missing a beat she said that she remembers too and what it was like being inside me. Trying not to bust a gut I asked her what she remembered. I didn't expect what I heard next. "Well mom, it was scary!" Oh, it was, how come? "Well mom when you ate food I would see it coming down and I was afraid it would fall on me." I tried to contain it but it wasn't happening. Kept in the full on belly laugh but the giggles weren't. I'm so glad she has such a lovely memory of her womb experience.

Silas told me yesterday I was his "best girl". Love that boy. :)

An afternoon at the park as a family, David was helping Silas on the jungle gym. This conversation ensued.

Boy on the playground: Is that your son?

David: Yes, he is!

Boy: He is?

David: He sure is!

Silas: And I'm his dad.

Boy: Oh.

I hope you don't mind that I've put a link to your blog on ours. I'd love our adopting families to have access to as many families as possible who've also adopted from Ethiopia. Your story is beautiful!!
