every day...

Last night, hanging out with my dear friends Kirsten and Malcolm, they asked me about my "kid stories" and noted I hadn't blogged any recently.

This is true.

Sometimes I forget the daily stories that pop up living with these three rambunctious kids...other times I just run out of time to write them...and sometimes I wonder if they're truly funny, or just funny to me. Every day I live with this family, I marvel at the amazing gift it is to live here.

Anyways, here's the latest from dinner tonight...enjoy :) (And, writing this post makes me realize I haven't taken any recent pictures. Sorry...that will need to be taken care of soon, right Corinna? :))

To set the scene for you: Jane (2 1/2 years) is exhausted. She bursts into tears at the beginning of supper, which ends up with a trip to the bathroom to get herself sorted out with her mom.

Bodhi looks at me and says: Every day, Jane cries. And every day, she wants to be a princess. And every day, she wants to drink her milkie on the couch. Every. Day.

Me: So, Bo, what do you like to do every day?

Bo: Um, well, I like to play And...I like to play And... (long mysterious pause, looking off to the side...and then turning back to face me)...train tracks. I like train tracks every day.

Me: Well, yes, that's true! Charlee, what about you? What do you like to do every day?

Charlee: Um.....I like to....(SCREAMS a very girly shriek at the top of her lungs) that. Every day. 

Me: Oh, really? I didn't know that!

Charlee: Well, actually, maybe only on Saturdays.
