Interesting Conversations

When I got home from work and picking up the kids last night, Aydan wanted to watch Shrek the 3rd (as usual). So I put the DVD in for him and sat down in the chair with him to watch it for a few minutes before starting supper. I love getting Aydan talking because he says some of the funniest things.

Me: Princess Fiona is going to have a baby. Shrek is going to be a daddy. She has a baby in her belly, Aydan.

Aydan (pointing at the tv): She has a butt.

Me: What? You mean she has a belly?

Aydan: She has a butt.

Me: Umm, yes, I guess she does.

Aydan: I'm gonna shake my booty with Fiona!!

Me: (pause...then dying laughing!!!) What!!

Aydan: I'm gonna shake my booty with Fiona!

Me: No, Fiona only shakes her booty with Shrek.

Aydan: I am too big? (raising his hand up toward the ceiling)

Me: Yes, you are too big. She only likes Shrek.


A little later, Kenzie joined me in talking to Aydan. She tells me she thinks Aydan has a girlfriend in daycare. I think there is only 1 girl in his class; the rest are boys.

Me: Aydan, who is the little girl in your daycare class?

Aydan: Legacy

Me: Legacy? Do you like her? Is she nice?

Aydan: (smiling) Yes.

Kenzie: Is she your girlfriend?

Aydan: Yes.

Kenzie: Do you kiss her?

Aydan: (making a grossed-out face) No! Thats yucky!! I don't kiss friends in my class!!

Things my 3 yr old son can do in 3 minutes (or less!)

Anytime Aydan is being quiet, I know he is up to no-good. He is the complete opposite of his sister. She was (and still is) so good; we didn't have to worry about her getting into anything. Here's a few examples of what Aydan can accomplish when I turn my back:

  • unpack all of the boxes in his room that I had just finished packing.
  • go into my bathroom, climb onto the sink, get into the cabinet and find my favorite lotion, and have it rubbed all over his entire body.
  • sneak into the kitchen in the middle of the night, climb onto the counter, and eat a whole bundle of bananas.
  • find where we hid the crayons/pens/pencils, dig them out, and color on the walls.
  • have his toy box completely emptied out and be hiding in it.
  • eat the whole pack of gum that was in my purse.

I wonder if he has super powers? I wish I could get as much done in 3 minutes as he can...my house would be super clean!! :)

CrAzY 8!!

Friday, April 30th was Mackenzie's 8th birthday!! I know, I can't believe she's already 8 years old!! She's not a baby anymore. We are half way to 16!! OMG!!
On Saturday, we had her birthday party at the park across the street from our apartment. We were hoping for no rain and we were blessed with a nice day! It was a little cloudy and overcast but that worked out well because it was already hot enough.
Danny had a great idea to surprise her with a moonwalk (bounce-house) so we got one for the day. We invited our family and she invited some friends from school/daycare. Well, I had sent a few invitations with her to school and told her to pass them out to a couple of her friends. Well she ends up asking her teacher to make copies and she gives one to every girl in her class!!
She was thrilled to see the bounce-house set up at the park. At first, she didn't think it was for her. Once she figured it out, she ran up to it and jumped in. Aydan was pretty excited too!
After everyone showed up, the kids played and then we did cake, ice cream, and gifts. She had a really good time. It had been a long time since Kenzie had a BIG birthday party with people other than us so we were glad that she had a good time with her friends and family! :)
This is the bounce-house we got for the day. We thought the space rocket was appropriate since we live so close to NASA.
Here's the birthday girl riding the new bike we got her for her birthday! She loves being able to ride a bike again.
