What a wonderfully sunny Sunday we had! It was chilly, but we had no basketball games or work, so we got in some good quality family time with a side of Vitamin D. I just wanted to remember these days before the next Nor'easter/Blizzard/Winter Storm from Hades hits us tonight.
Maggie got in trouble for her tendency to fight back when we ask her to do something...
Maggie: Sorry, Mom, I just went to Confession and now I ruined it because of my anger problems.
Me: Maggie, you don't have anger problems, you just have to learn to control your temper.
Maggie: Well I wish I wasn't Irish so I didn't have such a quick temper!
Dad: Alexander, come here and get your shoes on.
Xander: I wish I was Rapunzel and you would have to come to me.
Declan: We are doing the Letter P in school! P-P-P-Penguin!
Me: That's right!
Me: Close! Plane starts with a P.
Declan: No, my teacher said AIRplane starts with a P.
The boys have been asking Alexa to fart, and then the little ones do it, and so I reminded everyone at dinner that we don't say "fart"...
Xander: So we can never say the F word??!!
Maggie, riding her new (to us) womens bike for the first time...
"I just feel like such a woman!"
Upon hearing Lent was halfway over...
Xander: I just want to say the A word sooooo bad! (Alleluia)
I was reminiscing about being pregnant with Brendan...
Me: Declan, remember when Brendan was in my belly?
Declan: Wait...did you swallow Brendan with your mouth?
Xander spilled some of the water he was drinking:
Xander: Sorry, I have drinking issues. I don't know why I said that. I meant that I have a drinking problem.
In big news...Xander, at the ripe old age of 6.5, has gotten over his fear of bike riding and is "a superhero bike rider" now :)
