Kid Quotes

This morning we were going over our address during school.  I asked Acadia, who still can’t say the “r” sound, if she knows our town.  I told her it starts with “W”.

“Wuh…wuh….Wussia??” she asked hopefully.

Cute and funny, but no.  🙂


I asked Gannon if he knew where his sister was.  “She’s at the leutenant’s house,” he told me.

This was disturbing to me, since I had no idea whose house he was talking about.  I asked him again.

“She went over to show Audrey how empty the leutenant’s side is.”

OH.  He meant the other side of the duplex, which would house our TENANT if we had one.


In our grammar class, we memorize little poems.  One is called “Work.”  Acadia is fine with it till we get to the last two lines, which she recites as:

Things done by calves

Are never done right.

Those of you who are familiar with First Language Lessons will know that it’s supposed to be “halves”, not baby cows!


Edit: Here’s another one that just occurred.  The kids have started talking kinda goofy, like starting all words of a phrase with the same letter, or replacing one or two first letters with a different one.  Thus, television becomes bel-bah-bision, for instance.  This reached a new level of weirdness as Acadia washed up in the bathroom singing,

“Hallelu, Hallelu, Hallelu, Hallelujah, tasing the Lord!”

Just what we need, a five year-old with a taser, tasing the Lord.  Now, if she’d ever heard of a taser, I’d be seriously worried.

    LOL, they are so cute — and you are good to write these things down. It’s one thing I HAVEN’T done as a Mommy. Sniff! (My 9-yo still can’t say her “R’s” right!)

My blog. Herein read entries related to who and what is important to me. Feel free to leave comments. I feel free to delete them if I don't like them. So there. By reading about my life, readers should expect to begin to see their own lives as increasingly more organized and sophisticated, their homes cleaner and neater.

Why This Blog?

Well, mostly this is for my family to see pictures and read anecdotes about the kids. It's also a venue for telling the story of my struggles and victories in my life as a Christian, a wife, a mother, and a teacher. Occasionally I toss in some weird or touching item that I've found.

What’s Christianity All About?

The Gospel is the news that Jesus Christ, the Righteous One, died for our sins and rose again, eternally triumphant over all his enemies, so that there is now no condemnation for those who believe, but only everlasting joy. [as said by John Piper]
