Snatches of Conversation, Part 2

I love that I never know what is going to come out of children's mouths! Every day is an adventure.

(Yesterday, after dealing with four grumpy kids the majority of the day, Shawn gave them a talking-to about their behavior and Mother's Day. Then they came up to me one-by-one.)

Simon: Sorry, Mommy. Happy Mother's Day! I love my new dinosaur bucket in my bedroom.
Jamie: I'm sorry, Mom. Happy Mother's Day! I love you. (with a big hug)
Clare: I'm sorry you are mad at me.

(This morning as I am trying to do something with the rat's nest of Clare's morning hair.)

Me: Clare, how about if I do your hair half-up?
Clare: (Now getting upset) I don't want happy hair! I want angry hair!

Your kids say the funniest things - I love hearing their conversations. And I agree with Clare - some days your hair just needs to be angry.

Clare's morning hair is a good candidate for "angry hair" - how astute of her!

We cannot wait until we hear silly little conversations in my house... and in the meantime, please keep posting yours!

Your blog/facebook statuses never fail to crack me up!!!! Glad to hear that I am not the only one who had grumpy kids on Mother's Day!
