kids say the

It's just been one of those weeks, you know? I'm distracted, and my kids have noticed. By this morning, nerves are a little thin.

But the sun is shining for the first time in a week, the trees are budding, and today is a new day. So I thought I would share a few funny comments made by the boys recently.

For example -

(For the record, a good portion of what we eat here is homemade. Simply because dairy free, low-acid, natural, less-sugar foods are hard to find in a box, you know? So we cook from scratch a lot of what we eat. Which is what made the following comment even more random) - Yesterday I told the boys we were going to make a chocolate pie during quiet time, and after dinner we would eat it. Asher said, "Mom, we can't make a pie today. We don't have the box for it."

Then -

We've been listening to Nickel Creek a lot in the car recently. This morning, instead of The Lighthouse Song, Silas kept talking about The Crackhouse Song. The more I tried to correct him, the more insisted it really was The Crackhouse Song. And of course since we laughed about it, it has now been christened with a new name.

And -

This morning at breakfast Asher was singing Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer (naturally), and he stopped to ask me about Rudolph's friend Olive. "Olive?" I asked. "Yeah," he said. "Olive the other reindeer." Of course.

Happy Saturday, friends. Hope there is sunshine out of your window today, too.
