Things That Make Me Smile 11/22/13

Jake (7½), Alyssa (5½), Zac (4), Tyler (1½)

Happy Friday! It's been a busy week for Tyler: pulling the vent off the wall and dropping toys inside, climbing in and out of his exersaucer, throwing shoes in the fish tank, dumping toys all over the floor, climbing across the kitchen table, dumping crayons, throwing toys in the fish tank, throwing toys in the toilet, coloring on toys, spilling water, coloring on bed sheets with lipstick, throwing apples and oranges around the house, splitting a wooden spoon, emptying drawers . . . You get the idea. Dumping. Throwing. Breaking. Yeah, that just about sums it up. I hope your week was just as eventful, but not so much destructive, haha. 

1. Jake, after I kissed him: "I'm never going to wash my forehead."

2. Alyssa: "I know what fart means."
Me: "You do?"
Alyssa: "Yeah, like Papa fart in the army."
(That's when I realized that she was saying fought, but because her Rs often sound like Os, my ear is trained to hear her that way.)

3. Alyssa, giggling because I gave her 3 hugs & kisses and gave the boys only 2.


5. Me, holding up a dress: "Do you want to wear this one?"
Alyssa, concerned: "Are you going to iron it first?"

6. Watching Jake stop and silently pray before eating a piece of chocolate.

7. Jake learning the art of the double negative: "Tyler is un-un-awesome." and "Your cooking is not not good." and "I'm not not going to do that."

8. Zac: "Are aliens real?"
Me: "No."
Zac: "Yeah, but are they outer space real?"

9. Alyssa: "Mom, just so you know, it's not fun being sick."

11. Alyssa: "I know a lot about the vowels. {singing} There's a, e, i, o, uuuuuu."

12. Zac, excitedly: "Mom! That couch cushion {points to the curved part of our sectional couch) has more volume than the other cushions!"

13. Jake: "What if someone didn't let their kids watch that movie?"
Me: "Oh, I'm sure there are people like that. Anyway, not everyone even owns a tv."
Alyssa: "What?!? No tv?"
Jake: "How can people live without a tv?"
Me: "You don't even watch much tv."
Jake: "Yeah, but . . . What if someone didn't have an iPad?!? No one can live without an iPad!"

What made you Smile this week?
