Things That Make Me Smile 2/1/13

Jake 7yr, Alyssa 4½ yr, Zac 3 yr, Tyler 10 m

Happy Friday! Right after I posted my Smiles last week, the nurse came and removed Tyler's PICC line! It was so wonderful kissing on his little arm. He was thrilled to be able to take a bath again and enjoyed 2 of them on Saturday. So fun! This was the first week where things have been back to "normal."  And normal is good.

Here are a few other things that made me smile this week:

1. Jake, giving Tyler a kiss: "Mmm, you taste delicious."

2. Jake: "Want to come see how much I weigh?"
Me: "Can't you just tell me?"
Jake: "Can you please just come see?"
{heading to the bathroom, Jake steps on scale}
Me: "190 pounds?!? Hmm, I think you may have changed the balance lever, like 150 pounds."
Jake, laughing: "How did you know?"

3. Zac, talking about a picture of Tyler with red eyes: "What! He's a monster?"

4. Zac: "I win!"
Uncle Gary: "Oh yeah? And how did you win?"
Zac: "I hiya-ed you!"


6. Alyssa: "Zac did something to Tyler, but I don't know what."
Zac: "I don't know either."

7. Zac, while putting together a train set: "Mommy, this track won't listen to me!"

8. Jake: "Cavendish? That's a silly name. It sounds like Kevin Dish."

9. Zac: "May I have ice cream, please?"
Me: "Yes."
Zac, runs into the kitchen and returns whining: "There's no ice cream in the pantry."
Me: "There's no ice cream in the pantry??? Aw, man!"
Alyssa, opens the freezer and comes running over: "Mom! Everything in the freezer is about to die! There's no light in the freezer!"

10. Me: "That's not a word."
Jake: "Anything you say can be a word. You said it and you say words, so it's a word."

What made you smile this week?

  1. These made me smile...LOVE reading "Things that made me smile".

  2. What a fun post idea!!

    This week my 4yr old that sufferes with chronic acid reflux was getting ready for bed. I asked her if she needed any Mylanta before bed. To which she replied, "I don't want your lanta I was MY lanta!!" Apparently she thinks the name of the medicince is "lanta" and when she says "mylanta" she is actually referring to it as hers. Their little minds are sooo funny.

  3. These are adorable :) I love the things that my girls up with - so fun!!
