I love the funny things kids say, and I just thought I would quickly jot down a couple things I've heard around our house the last couple of days.
I, in a not so genius mothering moment, was trying to encourage my two older children to keep their rooms clean in the basement by letting them know if their floors are clean, spiders won't have many places to hide. Well now I've scared the pants of my kids. So..... they don't want to go to bed. Every night we have had to have a de-scarifying spider talk. (not too easy for me, since I suffer from extreme spider paranoia) Anyway, in tonights spider discussion we talked about spider eyes. Drew didn't think spiders could see all that well because they walk right onto sticky traps. Then we talked about them having several eyes. Madelyn wondered why Drew didn't think they could see very well if they had so many eyes. I told her "I guess I don't know a whole lot about the eyesight of spiders." She quickly told me I should check out "spiders.com." Thought that was funny.
Yesterday, Drew discovered the three P's. "There's the letter 'P,' the innapropriate 'P,' and the vegetable 'P'"......thought that was funny too.
This morning, there has been beautiful blue sky, and in that sky I noticed the moon. I called Madelyn over to come see it. We talked about how funny it was that the moon was out when the sun was too. Then she kind of laughed and said, "Jesus forgot to change it!!" That was funny too.
I'm having bedtime wars tonight. Gotta go re-put some kids to bed.
