What you do in your house is worth as much as if you did it up in heaven for our Lord God. We should accustom ourselves to think of our position and work as sacred and well-pleasing to God, not on account of the position and work, but on account of the word and faith from which the obedience and the work flow. ~ Martin Luther

Out of the mouths of babes

I have forgotten many a story I wanted to share, and write down for posterity. But here are a measley few, before I forget.

Some Funnies:

The other day Andrew walked into the bathroom while Matt was doing something and asked what the bottle was on the side of the tub. Matt replied, "It's shampoo."

"OOOOOHHHHhhhhhh. I know! Wike what Pandas eat!"

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Today Andrew was complaining about his leg hurting and I said, "Well. How come?"

"I dink cuz dere's too much food in my beyey."

~ ~ ~ ~ ~
Corynn has been begging to get her bangs cut, who knows why. I secretly didn't want to so I tried to dissuade her, but she wouldn't budge. I couldn't see why she would want bangs! She said her hair was always in her face. "But" said I, "if I cut your bangs hair will ALWAYS be on your forehead."
To this she got this strange look on her face and said "HUH?"
She meant for me to cut them all the way off!
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Corynn was reading a book in the backseat and was struggling with this one word.

Mama: "How do you spell it?"

Corynn: "A-N-I-M-A-L-S"

Mama: "Sound it out....A.n.i.m.a.l.s. ANIMALS"

Corynn: "Ugh! Mama! They spelled it wrong in here! You PRONOUNCE it aMInals!"

(This, my friends, is a case of not correcting your daughters ONE babytalk word because it is so cute that she actually uses it and she is, after all, already growing up too fast.)

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Some Sweets:

Yesterday, for the first time since having children I think (even after giving birth!), I stayed home from church because I was not feeling well.

When everyone got home, one of the first things that Corynn said was, "Mama-are you feeling better?"

I said, "Yes, I am. I am feeling much better."

Then she got this huge smile on her face and with beaming eyes said:

"Well! That is because of ME because when we were at church I asked to pray that you would feel better! And we did! And now you do! So that means that God answered my prayers!"

Those are so cute. And you are right on with that baby word thing... my 7 and 5 year old have been correcting ME lately when I use my two year old twins baby words with them. They say, "Mama, use the right word. They need to learn the word correctly." Of course, this is what I told them, but then these words are so cute... nope, they catch me and won't let me use them with the twins...and they're right, we need to teach them the right way. (But appey is so cute instead of apple don't you think?)

Ahhhhhhh yes! The Issue Of Bangs. Or rather, The Issue Of How To Be Rid Of Bangs. ,-)

Just be glad she didn't try to take matters into her own hands and cut them off, at the scalp. No, not done in my family, and I doubt it would be tried in your family either. But I have read of someone older than Corynn, doing it. Yikes! ,-)
