Things That Make Me Smile 11/2/12

Happy Friday! We have a long list this week, so I won't babble much. I will say that we had a great week - a big praise at work for Leighton, good learning activities for school, and all-around good attitudes from the kids. I hope you had a great week, too. Don't forget to share a memory from this week so we can smile with you!

1. Zac, to Tyler: "Didn't I tell you not to eat my Legos?"

2. Jake: "Green is my third favorite color."

3. Me: "Who loves you so, so much?"
Zac: "Mommy!"
Me: "That's right."
Zac: "Who loves you very so much?"
Me: "Zachy?"
Zac: "No. Daddy!"
Me: "How much does Zachy love me?"
Zac: "Four six."
Me: "Four six? That's a lot."
Zac: "Yeah!" 

4. Zac, after I handed him a sandwich: "Aww, you gave me triangles. How nice!" 

5. Zac: "You're my best friend, Mommy."

6. Alyssa, coming in from outside: "Can you get me some water for Daddy?"
Me: "Did Daddy ask you to get some water or did you think of that all on your own?"
Alyssa: "I thought of it all by myself. He needs water 'cause raking is hard work. I love my daddy."

7. Zac: "Mommy, you have green eyes!"
Me: "I do? I thought I had blue eyes."
Zac: "Yeah, you have one blue eye and one green eye! Sometimes I have one green eye."

8. Alyssa, depressed: "My life changed."
Me: "Your life changed?" How?"
Alyssa: "I don't know. It just changed."
Me: "Well, what's different about it."
Alyssa: "Something's wrong. It's just that now I'm coloring like a 3-year-old or maybe a 2-year-old. It's weird."

9. Jake, while eating a pack of Whoppers: "There are 3 in this one. Hey, it's like Jesus, 3-in-1!"

10. Me: "When was the last time you had it?"
Alyssa: "Well, I didn't have it the day after yesterday."

11. Alyssa: "Do mommy cats lay eggs?"
Me: "No."
Alyssa: "Oh, they just lay babies?"

12. Zac: "I don't like water. It's fake."

13. Zac was sitting on my lap while I was looking at things on the computer. As I closed one tab to go to another, he said, "Hey! I was 'bout to read dat!"

14. Alyssa: "I am the queen of dumping toys out."
Zac: "No, I am the queen."

15. Zac, during breakfast: "You ate yours all?"
Me: "Yes."
Zac: "Goody goody!"

16. Alyssa was helping me give Tyler a bath in his tub in the sink when he started peeing. It shot up in the air and across the room like a fountain. Alyssa's eyes got big and she said, "Whoa! That was awesome!"
