Last week I mentioned I had found my lost notebook of ‘Kid Quotes’ in my quest to do my 40-days of organizing. I thought I’d share a few words of wisdom from the mouth of these cute babes (which was YEARS ago!) That way, if I lose the notebook again, I won’t sweat it so much! You’ll notice the quotes that I recorded dwindled and dwindled and dwindled. By son #4, I obviously was burned out…or had heard it all….or was just plain too lazy to record his ‘quotes’. Yes, I feel the guilt! :o)
Son #1 was obviously accustomed to seeing only crescent, half-moons etc. One night as we were driving home, he commented on the moon being in the shape of a circle. I responded, “That’s what we call a full-moon”. Son #1: “Why? Because it ate too much?”
While watching fireworks at our city’s annual celebration, son #1 say “They go up and then drip down!”
After hearing his parents comment about his younger brother’s “cat naps”, a few days later he asked his younger brother, “Did you have a nice kitty nap?”
When doing a puppet play when son #1 was 3 years old, he said, “This is a big, bad wolf, and he is a nice big bad wolf.”
When son #1 was asked whether after playing with his friend, if he could nicely come out to the car when it was time to go, son #1 answered, “Probably”.
One day, son #2 pushed son #3’s hair back off his forehead and said, “Him Daddy”. (Dad was balding :o)
Another day, son #2 cleared some shoes out of his Dad’s closet and said “Look what I’m doing for our husband, mom!”
In September 1996, our church put on a children’s program during the Sunday Sacrament service. His primary class of 3-year old’s sang “I am a Child of God”. Son #2 sang at the very top of his lungs, while the rest of the class either didn’t sing at all, or sang very quietly! The congregation members talked about it for weeks and even months afterward!
For quite a few days on son #2’s way out the door to school, he’d yell “too-da-loo” (tout a` l’heure), so I started saying it back to him. One day he said, “You don’t always have to say it in Spanish”.
Son #3 saw son #4 sucking on his fingers and yells, “Daddy, Daddy! Dallin’s eating himself!”
Son #3 often heard his older brothers say “Scout’s Honor”, or “Pinky Swear” when they were promising to do something. Son #3 wanted to promise something but said “Pinky Scouts” instead.
That’s it for today’s miscellany! Have a great day. Do something NEW!
This peach-colored iris wowed me! I see variations of purple iris all the time, but not many of this hue.
And other miscellany: I use the notes app on my phone A LOT!…just for random stuff. I recently cleaned out my notes (and stuck a few of them here :o)…so did i really ‘clean’ them out, or is this the equivalent of paper shuffling?
- Quote from the book, The Caliph’s House…page 257: “…seek out what is not immediately seen. On the surface, the carrot is a mere tuft of green, but under the ground there’s a root waiting to be found.”
- A question I heard (or read) somewhere: “When was the last time you had a defining spiritual experience?”
- GOALS (Gaining Opportunities And Life Skills)
- “Think to Thank” and “Observe Then Serve”
- “It’s better to be at the bottom of the ladder you want to climb than the top of the one you don’t”.
- “Most successful people start with dominant talent and then add skills, knowledge and practice to the mix”.
- “All truly great thoughts are conceived while walking”
Have a great day! Do or learn something NEW!
