More Things that Warm a Mother's Heart (NOT!)

As if it wasn't enough to see my then three-year-old loving riding a motorcycle, now I've got machine guns to contend with!

Hair today, gone tomorrow

At nine months old, Brawny Baby's hair was getting out of hand. I think his new "do" suits him well, not to mention it highlights how much he looks like his brothers.

Resident Gardeners

Again, I ask myself ... why do I buy toys and things like sandboxes, when real (cheap) things like dirt are so much more fun?!?

I like birds

This evening our four-year-old and I were outside. There was a bird up on the phone wire and he pensively said, "I like birds."

I put my hand on his head and lovingly said, "aw, you do?"

He said, "yeah...I like to scare them."

Now he is a very sweet-natured boy, so this comes across particularly funny to me. And by scare them, I now understand what he and his brother are doing when they're "screaming" at the birds on the wires. I always thought he was "talking" to them - you know, in bird-language. Live and learn.

A ceiling eatin' snake

Four-year-old to Mom: "What would happen if a snake ate a ceiling?"
Mom: "Snakes don't eat ceilings."
4YO: "It would if it was a ceiling eatin' snake."
