From The Mouth Of.....

I use to do a regular from the mouth of post since my 6 year old is forever saying the darnedest things. And my 2 year old is right on his tail with the wittiness these days. Maybe I'll start posting more of these again but for now here are a few:

Husband: "Welcome to my world."
2 year old: "Welcome my world. I here all the time."

Husband: "I'm sorry, I don't want to go either but it's my job and I have to go."
6 year old: "Well doesn't the captain care that your kid is crying."

And here's one more retold to me from my mom when she was here watching the kids:

My mom: “Come on, [2 year old], Let’s get your PJs on and get you ready for bed"
2 year old: “My want shower"
My mom: “No, Mommy said you don’t need a shower tonight. Let’s get your PJs on.”
2 year old: “No. My want shower.”
My mom: “Mommy said no shower tonight, buddy.”
2 year old: “No Mommy NOT. My. Want. SHOWER.”

I'm glad that they are able to keep me laughing through all of this. I don't know what I would do without them!

Here's one from the 9-yr-old I didn't tell you (note to other readers, Amy is only about 5'1")...

When Dad was there a couple of weeks ago, she wanted to play Apples to Apples. Of course, it's the game on the highest shelf at the very top of a huge pile of games. Dad said it was a stretch, but he got it. When I was there the other night, she wanted to play the same game. It hadn't gotten any lower. She asked if I needed a step-stool/ladder. "Mommy always has to use a ladder," she said. "Nope, I can reach," I said. So I stretched, grabbed the game and handed it to her. She looked at me in amazement and said, "Man. You people are tall!" (I knew she was thinking of Dad, too.)

What do you have to say?


This Blog is my outlet. It's where I share my thoughts and feelings. It's a place where I can vent. Not everyone thinks alike. People don't always share the same religious or political views. Some people (like me!) occasionally think in more “colorful” terms than others. Sorry, but I'm a big girl and can use cuss words and talk about not-so-mainstream stuff if I want to. If you find that sort of language offensive / shocking / annoying, you may want to stop reading now. Life as a military wife ain't always pretty. It's my life, though, so don't say I didn't warn you.
