The things they say and do

Posted on

More kid stuff. Better than me blabbing on and on, huh!


At supper one night Daddy rolled up Caleb’s sleeves on his Spiderman shirt.

Caleb: Why you rolling up my sleeves Daddy?

Pat: Cause Spiderman is awesome and we don’t want to get him dirty.

Caleb: No, he’s cute.

Pat: He’s cute?

Caleb: Ya, he’s cute.

Angel: No, Caleb. He’s the awesomest.

Caleb: No! He’s cute everyone!


I was laying in bed with Angel and Daddy and Joey were playing in the family room.

Angel: What is Daddy doing out there?

Me: Working with Joey.

Angel: Is he teaching him a lesson?

Me: Ya, I guess so.

Angel: (in a low voice) I’m gonna teach you a lesson!

We both laugh.

Angel: (laughing) Mommy I can’t do that! I don’t even know how to teach you a lesson!


We laugh about something we taught the kids. Quite awhile back Pat said to one of the kids, “I’m watching you,” and he used his index and middle finger to point to his eyes and then point back to the kids.  I did it one day to them too and now they’ve started doing it to us.

“I’m watching you Mama!”

Caleb can’t quite hold up just his two fingers – poor kids has the chubbiest fingers! – so he does it with three fingers. He’s really watching us I guess!


I mentioned awhile back how Caleb likes the movie Barbie Princess Charm School. Ok, he doesn’t just like it, it’s probably one of his top three. Anyway, after watching the movie he started kneeling down to give me stuff and saying, “Here you are sir.” Pat finally got it on video the other night.


Caleb’s middle name is Richard. He seems to think that it’s everyone’s middle name. Or he’s just a big stinker.

“Mommy Richard!”

“Daddy Richard!”

“Angel Richard!”

“Joey Richard!”


We were eating out at a Mexican restaurant and Angel saw a cactus across the room. She asked if she could touch it when we left. I said yes.




My parents were here last weekend and one morning Caleb went into the room where my mom was and said, “How you doing today, Grama?”


And a little dancing.

    The way Caleb said it was actually, “….and how is YOUR day going today, Grama?” (It was 7:00 o’clock in the morning!)
