Leah's at it again!

(Picture from Sarah's valentine party at preschool)

Leah is very tall for her age. She is not even 22 months old and is 2 full inches taller than what her sisters where at this age. Because of this, she has no problem opening doors. Very frustrating!
Lately she has taken to opening the ballroom door, standing on the toilet, and turning on the water in the sink. Sometimes she just holds her hands under, but other times she finds things to get wet in the water. Two times it has been our Ken doll now.

Mooshu, our cat!

Mooshu has done so many silly things since we got her in early January, but lately she has been climbing the drying rack while I'm in the laundry room. It is so cute! Sometimes she gets stuck and starts to fall. She just wants to be close to me!

A girl and her "desk"

Next to Sarah's side of the bed she shares with Rebekah, there is a wood end table that she is able to pull a small plastic chair up to. Because Bekah has a full-sized desk in the room to do her homework at, Sarah calls this end table her desk.

Tonight, as the girls were cleaning up their stuff, Bobby instructed Sarah to take a clipboard she has with paper on it and put it on her "desk."

This was her response: "But what about my homework?"

She is always so particular about keeping her "desk" clean. She doesn't want to put anything on it so that she won't be able to do her homework, which she never really has. :~)

Rebekah, daughter #1, 6.5 years old

Rebekah (who is in 1st grade, will not turn 7 until almost 2 months into 2nd, and who is reading at almost a 3rd grade level) still insists to me that Winnie the Pooh's name is not Winnie, but Linnie.

Silly Leah (21.5 months old!)

Mooshu was sitting in the box to our new toaster oven, (old one died after almost 9 years), and Leah decided to join her. Such a silly girl!

I'm Back!!!

After a very long break, I am back at blogging. I have decided to use this blog to share funny stories about my kiddos and a few pictures.

Today, Sarah walked into the kitchen while I was making lunch (with Leah following close behind.) She was carrying a baby doll.

She somberly asked, "Mommy, when are we going to have real babies?"

"Well, Sarah, we already had one, it's Leah. She just grew up!"

Sarah, "No, when am I GOING TO HAVE BABIES?"

Me, "Well, when you grow up, find a husband, and get married."

She leaned against the refrigerator and looked really nervous. "That's scary!" (with a quiver in her voice)

"Which part?"

"The getting married part!"

"Believe it or not, having babies is almost as scary as getting married!"
