My 13-year-old

My 13-year-old to me about her younger sister, “Mom, Nat’s room has a doll infestation!”

Can we spray for those?

THOUGHTS OF A SIX-YEAR-OLD

Standard

My six-year-old: “Mom, how come you have parents when you and Dad already are parents?”
Me: “Well, we were your age once. And parents are still parents, even after their kids grow up.” And then I started to go into how he also had aunts and uncles. And cousins.
Nathan just shakes his head. “Mom, you’re really starting to freak me out.”

TALES FROM A WEEK OF SNOW DAYS

Standard

My six-year-old just wrapped his bedspread around him and took over running through the house yelling, “i’M BATMAN!”

… time for a little reflection …

Standard

My daughters decided to teach my six-year-old to meditate.

From the side room, I heard “Ohm! Ohm! Ohm!”

I don’t think the six-year-old quite got it.  Because I also heard, “Gnome! Gnome! Gnome!”

Those tender parenting moments

Standard

I was grouchy this morning.  Had a rough night’s sleep.  But I always try to not take it out on my kids.  My six-year-old son and I were sitting on the couch together and I was praising him for how good a reader he has become.  He’s come a long way with reading and with speech.

In that touching moment, I lean over and kiss him on the cheek and tell him that I love him and am very proud of him.

He just wipes off his face, wrinkles up his nose and says, “Ewwwww!  Mom spit!”
