I love writing down what I hear the kids say. Here are some tidbits from their life.
When Heath wrestles with Kolby, Heath likes to act like he's a wild animal scavenging for food. So he tells Kolby he wants some fresh meat, and he goes for his neck. I was in the other room and I heard Kolby say "Go get Kamyren! She has lots of fresh neck for you!"
Keaton wanted Kolby to do something for Heath, and after Keaton told Kolby what to do, Kolby replied "I'm not Daddy's Butler!"
I made Kolby stand in the corner the other day (it happens frequently...) and Kolby's frustratred reply was: "Well how long do I have to stand here this time? 13 years?"
I told all the kids to put their shoes on, when we were going out somewhere, and Keaton said " I do! I've been wearing my shoes since I put them on!"
Keaton spends a lot of time in the bathroom doing his hair. He likes to try to comb it over like Clark Kent. After he was done, he came to me and said "Mom, after I do my hair, I like to wet my finger and smooth it over my eyebrows to make them look handsome.
Kamy has been really interested in brushing her teeth lately. So now she comes to me and says "Mom. I really like when my teeth are white." Me too.
Since Christmas, Kamy's been writing in her journal that she got. She loves to read me what she wrote too. Last week, she wrote down that she had a great family. Then she wrote down all the names of her siblings, just in case she forgot later.
(Thank you for the sweet comments from yesterday! It really meant a lot to me. There are a lot of new faces out there. I look forward to getting to know you.)
