Davi – “Mommy! It’s my lucky day! I found a lucky penny.”
*reveals a shiny nickel*

Me – “That’s a nickel, buddy. That’s like five pennies.”

*examining it closely*
Davi – “How did they all get in there?! WOW! It IS my lucky day. I found the biggest penny EVER in the world.”

Hahaaa… can I just keep this one little forever?

Davionn loves to challenge and question my knowledge…

Davi “Mommy, I’m hungry… I want broccoli and I want it cooked.”

ME (trying to avoid cooking broccoli at the moment) “Can you just eat some fruit loops?’Davi “NO way.”

ME “Why? Don’t samurai’s eat fruit loops?”

Davi “Some do. Just Power Rangers.”

ME “How do you know Power Rangers eat fruit loops?”

Davi ” EVERYONE knows THAT!”

He may have a point. Ha.

…While I’m cooking broccoli…

Davi “Mommy, do turtles fart?”

ME “I don’t know.”

Davi *sighs* “You don’t know anything.”

Ouch.

Davi “I know, that’s why I picked you.”

Finn “No no… you were in mommy’s belly when I was a baby. You didn’t know you was being borned.”

Davi “Don’t be silly…” *laughing hysterically* *then straight faced* “I’m a samurai.”

Finn *face palm* “Oh brother.”

Bahahaaa… It’s not easy being the mama of ninjas… but it certainly can be entertaining.

Born a Man

November 1, 2011

And so it begins. Sweet, innocent, 2-year-old, Finnley ‘told’ me to go make some hot dogs for lunch.

I jokingly asked him, “Why do I always have to make lunch?”

He said, “because that’s what you do.”

I asked, “Why because I’m the mom?” expecting a cute innocent response.

He said… “No, because you’re a woman.”

I really wanted to correct him for ‘ordering’ me to do something… but all I could do was laugh. Where does he come up with this stuff??? Tsk tsk, my son.

It’s a Musical Life

September 15, 2010 OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

4 year old, Lorelei, came up to me and said “Momma, can we move to Baltimore?”

I told her that we already lived there once before and didn’t plan to move back, but asked her why she wanted to move to Baltimore of all places.

She revealed a copy of the movie Hair Spray and said “The kids in Baltimore really know how to dance… I think I want to be friends with the kids in Baltimore when I grow up.”

A child after my own heart. If only life was a musical!
