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!

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.

Davi “I love you Finney. You so funny. I’m happy I picked you for my brother.”
Finn “What? You didn’t pick ME… I was born first!”
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.
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.”

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?

I was carrying a cooler and a few other items to the house when Finnley ran to my aid.
Finnley – “Mom, I can carry that for you… I’m as strong as an ox!”
Me – “Thanks buddy, so an Ox is pretty strong?”
Finnley – “Yeah, I’ve heard people say that.”
*as I hand him what I’m sure he can carry*
Me – “Are you sure everything people say is true?”
Finnley *thinks for a second* “Well, no… but I can’t think of any reason someone would lie about an ox.”
Haha. Oh, how I love this kid’s logic.

Kaydenc – “Mommy, can I go upstairs and watch TV in your room?”
Me – “The TV is on downstairs.”
Kaydenc – “Yeah, but the ‘kids’ won’t let me watch the Travel Channel.”
Me – *stunned silence*
*From the living room*
Finnley – “Hey look, I’m sitting on my face like Bork!”
Kaydenc – *sighs* “LIKE MORK!”, “My brain needs a break, I’m going to go watch the caterpillars in my room.”
I think this rainy Friday needs to be a silly, creative, play day! It’s time to channel our family FUN!
