I've been trying to write down some of the sweet things that have been said around the Martin House lately (you know, to make up for all the other things said I would never want recorded).  Here's what I've heard:

Sometimes when I have all the kids at a playground or store, I feel like there's someone missing...I keep looking around for Baby #5.

(As I'm putting on mascara) Mom, why do you always have to get so beautiful for work?  I mean, you're beautiful anyway, but why do you have to put on makeup for work?

When I become a lady and have big "chesteses", I'm going to marry Eamon.

Mom, when you come to see my Kindergarten Graduation, you might need to bring a tissue for the last song.

From our Anniversary Date:
Me: Phil, why do you always order chicken fingers when we go to a restaurant?
Phil: Because I like chicken fingers.
Me: I know, but there are so many other things to choose from, and how will you ever know if you like anything else unless you try it?
Phil:  I know what I like and I don't want to try anything else.  That should make you feel good.  I'm a loyal guy...when it comes to girls, you are my chicken fingers.



  1. I have to say the chicken fingers one was my favorite and how hysterical! There's a fine line though when your hubby compares you to a greasy piece of meat! LOL That was great.

  2. Awwww, these were the sweetest! I don't know which I love the most :)

  3. I love Maggie's statement. So cute. The one from Phil is cute too. =)

  4. HAAAAHAAAAA!!!! Those are all too cute. Especially Maggie and Phil.

  5. I LOVE that you are his chicken fingers! Every girl should be someone's chicken fingers in life. ;)

  6. Hilarious! I am laughing so hard at Maggie's! Too funny. You just made my last blog check for the day SO worth it. Thanks for the smile :) hubby ALWAYS orders Taco Salad. If the place we're at has it, he'll order it. It's his 'stand by', then he doesn't have to broaden his horizons. I ALWAYS make fun of him for it ;)

  7. i always think there is someone missing too but i attribute it to when things are quiet...if its quiet and everyone's good i just have to keep counting the chickens. sometimes having so many kids is too easy. really it is :)

  8. aaaaaaaaaaaaw over that last one!
    too too sweet!!

  9. Those are some of the sweetest things I've ever heard :) Jason is under the impression that when you kiss someone a certain way (on the lips? I'm not sure what the criteria is) you're married. We've 'married' a few times now :)
