He Said, She Said

Maggie: I just cracked my Foot Thumb.
Me: Your what?
Maggie: My Thumb Toe!


Every time we get into the car, Alexander tries to slip out of our death grip and make his way into the front seat, saying "NO! Xander drive!"

And this is why we can't let him drive yet...


Maggie: Dad, lift me up on your soldiers!
Phil: I think you're saying the wrong word.
Maggie: Oh yeah, it's not''s...shouldiers?...solders?....what is it called?
Phil: Sing the song to help you remember.
Maggie: (singing) Head, soldiers, knees and toes.


After I took this picture of Andrew sleeping on the long car ride home, he woke up and said "I couldn't fall asleep at all". 


Eamon (rubbing my belly like he has every morning since he found out the news):
I think it's getting a little bigger!
John-Paul (who is wise to the idea that Mom doesn't really want to acknowledge her bigness quite yet):
No!  She still looks normal!
Maggie: Nope, it's definitely getting waaaaaay bigger.


Phil: So do you think this baby is a girl?
Me: What do you think?
Phil: Well, they say girls steal your beauty, so I can never answer that question without getting in trouble.
Me: You could just tell me it looks like a boy.
Phil: Oh, yeah, it DEFINITELY looks like a boy.


  1. Awwww, thanks for the laughs this morning!

  2. So if girls steal your beauty, do you get it back after they are born?

  3. I just finished a very long blogging break and wrote my first post last night. In it I mentioned how I haven't been able to keep up with blogs I used to read regularly and I said "half of you are probably pregnant... and I wouldn't know it!" I wrote that with you in mind and I come here and turns out my inkling was right! So happy to start reading you again!

  4. Ummmmmmm, excuse me, where have I been? I was all set to comment on the thumb-toe {Kam calls it the "mama toe"}, and I was cracking up at the sleepy "drivers" {Tay hates the car seat too, it's always a struggle}. And then I came to the part about tummy bigness . . . CONGRATULATIONS!!!! You don't know how badly I wish I had similar news to announce :( Wouldn't it be fun to be pregnant at the same time again? I mentioned baby to Jeremy tonight, and he laughed out loud, and then a firm "NO!" Sigh.

  5. I love the things your kids say!!!

  6. Phil is one smart man! Sounds like he's been down this block a few times!


Talk to me...
