When are you going to learn that parents know everything?

I help in the first grade at school once a week.  I trade babysitting with another mom in our ward so she can go on a different day.  On Monday, Jenni Stoker was watching Lindey.  Lindey was talking to her and told her, "I'm smarter than my Dad."
"You are?"
"Does he know?"
"No, it's my secret!"

Jenni ran into John at the school later that day and told him what Lindey had said.  When John got home that evening, he was visiting with Lindey and then said to her, "I hear you are smarter than me..."
She had a smug little look on her face and shook her head yes.  As soon as she registered what he said, her eyes got huge and she said, "You weren't suppose to know!!"

What is Black and White and so 90's?

We had just finished watching a movie with the kids.  John was flipping through channels and Perry Mason was on.  We enjoy watching it, so John left it on that channel.  It wasn't long before the kids started complaining and asking if we could watch something else. 

Micah kept asking if we could turn on Phineas and Ferb.  Eli chimed in with his argument, "This show is black and white! It is so...90's!" 

John and I couldn't help but laugh.  More like the 50's, buddy.  Thanks for making us feel old!!

Flower Power!

We were playing a game called "Beat the Parents" with the kids.  We asked the kids, "What is another name for "Flower Child"?

The kids discussed it for a few seconds then Zander blurted out, "A Bloomer!!"

Ha ha!  No, the answer was Hippie. LOL
Peace out!

There's a Hole in My Sock!

Micah came into the scrapbook room and said, "Mom, I have a hole in my sock."
If you have boys, you know this is not uncommon. (At least my boys.) So I totally wasn't expecting what came next.
When I turned to look at him, this is what I saw:
I busted up laughing!  I couldn't help it!  Every time I look at this picture, I chuckle.
What a crazy, crazy, kid! August 15, 2015

So Annoying!

We went to Lagoon last Tuesday, July14, with John's family.  We go every year and the kids always look forward to it.  They plan out exactly which rides they want to go on and the order they will ride them in.  John and his siblings talk about doing the same thing when they were little. :)

We went on a few of the kid rides, and then went over and tried to get on a few of the bigger rides.  The minimum height on most of those rides is 46".  Eli measured in at 45" tall, and, sadly, was unable to ride them.  I decided to part ways with John and the older kids and take Eli and Lindey to the rides they could do.  As we were walking back to Kiddieland, Eli said, "Only being 45 inches tall is kind of annoying!"

It cracked me up! :)  Good thing he's not done growing yet...45 inches is such an annoying height!

We finally have Home Teachers--Now to get them to stick around...

Our family has not had consistent home teachers in about 10 years. When John told me our home teachers wanted  to come for a visit, I was excited!  Sunday at 6pm rolled around and our home teachers showed up as promised.  We visited for a few minutes before Brother Butterfield started asking about General Conference.  Just as he began sharing a message from one of the talks that stood out to him, Eli sighed really loudly and exclaimed, "This is soooo boring!"
John and I were mortified! Brother Butterfield just laughed--good thing he has a sense of humor! (Granted Eli had been in time out for about 30 min. prior to the home teachers showing up for peeing behind the shed with the neighbors watching, but still!)
Guess we need to have an etiquette lesson for Family Home Evening before the home teachers come back....if they come back! Ha ha!

The Queen has Spoken

Lindey was getting tired while we were hiking out on the desert.  She asked John if he would pick her up.  He told her no. She pouted a little and John gave in saying, "Alright, fine. I will hold you."  As soon as she was perched on his shoulders she starting singing, "I'm the queen of daddy!"  Boy does she have that one right! :)
