Kids are hilarious and I'm lucky enough to have them cracking me up every single day, so how can I not share them with you! These are just some of the funny things they say.
Izzy, referring to her doll who was apparently very fashionable."She's very stashinal."
Connor had drooled on Izzy's doctor kit, daycare boy told her, "you should put your dr. kit in your room." Izzy replies very casually,"That's ok, I don't care if he throws up on it."
Izzy told me today, "I'm 4 now."me: "Oh really, when did you turn 4?" Izzy: "I don't know, I just learned my ABC's."
While cleaning up the Elefun game after deciding she didn't want to play anymore, and while Connor was starting to get into the butterflies, Izzy tells him, "Consadurations Connor but you can't play this anymore. I can teach you how to play baseball though!"
Conversation between Izzy and daycare boy. Izzy, "Your froggy umbrella has big eyes!"daycare boy,"I know that Izzy, that's because I love him!"
While visiting my sister-in-law's new house, Mikayla started screaming bloody murder. Nana asked, "Do you have a sliver?" Mikayla while still screaming and sobbing, "No, I have a stick under my skin!!"
We had wild rice casserole for dinner, and Izzy decided to play with it for some reason, making a huge mess and getting it all over her hands. This was her prayer at the end of dinner,"Dear God, thank you for my food, thank you for my family, thank you for my friends, and thank you for being messy! Amen"
Mikayla was writing a story on the computer, and we had just talked about semicolons, when she announced to me that, "I think if I have a boy when I grow up I'll name him Colon, that sounds like a good name." Upon further discussion she decided that perhaps Collin was a better name for a little boy.
Izzy, while playing with little Beauty and the Beast figures:"I can show you the ways of being a normal person. Pick berries, read, wash your hands a lot... "all said with a British accent.
I asked the kids what they like to dream about, Izzy answered,"Princesses.... Meat.... My family....."
Last night we were at my cousins' house and they had a very large family picture framed and hung on the wall. Mikayla looked at it and casually said, "They must have taken that picture with a really big camera."
Daycare Boy after ghost hunting: "I wish I had a pet dinosaur made out of mud!" Because clearly only mud dinosaurs would protect him.
Connor trying to say the word "helicopter":"Bobbicocker"
Izzy randomly asks,"Why did God give us a head?"
Connor heard the outer door getting blown open by the wind and, startled, asks "Who's coming?". Like the good mom I am I say very surprised like, "Monsters are coming" and continues to stare. So I say, "Robots are coming!" Very seriously Connor tells me,"How about Care bears are coming!"
On the way to gymnastics we played a game, here's an excerpt:
Me - "Something I want you to do, it starts with an F, ends with an S, and has a C in the middle"
Mikayla - "Frapaccinos!!!" (intended word was Focus)
Me - "Something I want you to have... I want you to have__"
This fall Mikayla wanted to give volleyball a try. Spencer and I agreed that volleyball would be a really good sport for her because she's tall for her age and crazy strong, so if she could get the coordination part in there she'd be a pretty awesome player!
This past Tuesday night was Youth Night for the High School Volleyball teams. This meant that all the youth volleyball players got a free ticket to the varsity game. Mikayla and I went to the game while Spencer finagled Izzy and Connor for the night driving them around for Izzy's gymnastics class. The game was awesome! We didn't win, but it was really exciting to watch! The pep band was there, lots of people in the stands cheering, and although it was a little chilly in the gym - I loved that it was indoors and the seats were fairly comfortable. I thought, "This is a sport I could really get into sitting in the stands to watch!" I couldn't play it, but I really liked watching! :o) She played soccer years ago and that was fine, but being outdoors made it less than comfortable quite often. I love being outside when it's nice out, but I don't like being stuck outside for extended time when it's too hot/cold/windy/rainy.
Mikayla loved the game too, she was doing lots of shouting and cheering her hometown team on. It was the first volleyball game she'd ever seen, so it was good for her to see what a real game (wait... match? I don't know) looks like.
Then last night she had her first games, and I finally got a chance to really see her play! She is a great server! It was funny how excited everyone in the gym got any time there was more than one volley over the net! Ha! For first year players these girls were great! Mikayla's team won both of their games against the neighboring town. To be fair, the ages are different. Our town groups 3rd and 4th grade together and the other town groups 2nd and 3rd together, so the teams we played against had some 2nd graders, and we have some really tall 4th graders. But it was still so fun and such an encouragement to the girls to get a couple wins in them right away!
They only played games last night and then will play a couple next week and then they are done with games. It is so fun! Even Izzy and Connor got into it. Izzy was anxious to catch anything that came her way in the side lines and throw the ball back in, and Connor was all about the cheering and fist pumping! :o)
After watching a varsity game, and now Mikayla's game, I can definitely say that once I figure out how the scoring and rules work I will definitely enjoy going to volleyball games in the future!
