From the FB World

Facebook is a lovely little thing.  But it does have it's drawbacks.  I post little things that my kids, particularly Rohan, says, but there they sit, being stacked upon by all the busy-ness of Facebook (and occasionally I say something funny I want to remember too).  I'll never find them again.  So, I'm going to post some of those things on here so they are a little more accessible and easier to remember.  This might be a really long post, or maybe it will encompass several posts, but either way, I want them recorded.    Enjoy...

Rohan sees Brynja getting sleepy in the car, leans over to her to sing her a song and leans back to me, "Mom, I forgot that song, what's It called... 'Baby in a tree'?
Me: 'Rock a bye baby'?
Rohan: "Yeah, rock a bye baby..." and he leans over and start singing it to Brynja. So cute.

I owe a public apology to my daughter, Brynja Leigh. I wrongfully accused her of throwing my cell phone charger in the garbage, when really I just moved it into her room to listen to Pandora while I was cleaning one time and I... ahem... forgot.

Sorry, baby girl.

Dear Tuesday,
You might be my favorite day of the week for the simple fact that you are not Monday.

"Today was more awesome then a shark high-fiving a bear during an explosion in outer space." ....Today hasn't necessarily been that awesome, but this quote had to be stolen from my friend, Dan's status. HA!!

Rohan declared that because it was SUCH a nice day, we HAVE to have a "pigNic"! He got out the blanket, spread it carefully, grabbed the basket I store plastic-wear in, and grabbed a handfull of pretzels. Then he asked me if I'd like him to make me a PBJ.

That's what I call a Motherhood Prize... Happy Mother's Day to me!

You know your baby has three older siblings when she toots and then laughs while she looks up to see who's laughing with her.

Dear Stranger Who Knocked at My Door-
You are weird. When you knock and get no answer, why do you feel like it's ok to open up my door and put a business card *inside* my house in my daughter's shoe asking me if I want to sell my car? I feel a little violated. Maybe I should lock my door at 10:30 am more often? Thanks for the heads up, crazy.

I gotcha this time, Dinner. HAHA!! I planned for the whole week and you're so done. I'll see you tomorrow in some split-pea soup.

Rohan @ lunch says to me... Mom, you're just a little bit old.

Me... Oh? Just a little bit?

Rohan, in clarification... Yeah, just *barely* old.

Teaching my baby girl the fine art of sitting by the heater. She's so precious... and heat seeking.

Just met a little girl named clancy. It was a little surreal, like I was observing some younger version of myself.

Curse the traffic engineers who decided to change Holmes' traffic pattern. May your dogs get fleas and your cats throw-up on your pillow. And if you don't have pets, traffic engineers, I curse you to run out of windshield washer fluid while driving in Utah!

Rohan says to me, totally randomly: Mom, some day I want to go to a Massage Factory.

Me, stifling laughter: A massage factory?

Rohan: Yeah, you know... one of those places that you get a massage? And it's made of rock on the outside and the inside?

Still not sure what he meant, but man it was funny.

Weather channel app on my phone told me that in @
Atlanta georgia, it was 57 degrees and that it feels like 57 degrees. I told to the phone to find my location..
1 degree, and it feels like -16 degrees. What an awesome day to live in Idaho.

Baby B cut two teeth, started crawling and took her first steps all in the same week.

Dear Autumn, thank you for your boastful and lingering display. Do me one favor and tell Winter we could do without the preview of his cold, blustery gifts.

Rohan... "mom, are we nephites?"

Me..."uhhh... no, not really."

R... "so we're Samaritans?"

Me... "uhhh... no."

R... "so, what are we then?"

Me... "Gentiles?" (Are we?)

R... "but Samaritans talk like this, right? "


Cutest kid ever.

Did you know that there is now a CHOICE of restrooms in my house now!? It's all so awesome.

Brynja rolled over today! Took her time with that one, so Mom was extra excited.

I'm thinking of starting my own business: Professional Time Waster. If you need time wasted, I'm your girl.

You know what phrase is strange?  "One tough cookie".

Why a cookie?  When cookies get overdone I wouldn't describe them as tough.  I can't think of any situation involving cookies in which I would incorporate the word "tough".  I would be thinking more along the lines of crispy, or blackened, or crunchy. 

"He's one crunchy cookie."

That just doesn't have the same ring to it, does it?

It would make more sense to say, "He's one tough steak," or something like that. Don't you think?

"He's one tough piece of leather."

"She's one tough Kevlar suit."

Just a passing thought as I was clearing the dinner dishes tonight...
