Here are some quotes flying around here these days:

"I gotta get me some of these!" 13yo S, discovering Dad's cool sunglasses on the drive to Target yesterday. Where did my baby boy go?

M (8yo) recently had dental work done. Now the family game is "play dentist." M.(in the role of receptionist) says, "Who is next to see the dentist?" A (3) replies, wearing plastic Halloween teeth, "Me... I have purple teeth!" yep - that can be a problem.

(Before A. turned the corner on potty training) After nap one day, Mom asks, "A, do you have poopie in your pants?" A replies, "Yes, but I rolled over so it wouldn't get smooshed!" Gee...thanks?

A. is also working on a new memory verse, Genesis 1:1. "In the beginning God created Genesis One" Well, yes, I guess He did! ;)

Sweet little KL (18months) recently discovered her sister's dress-up beads. They're her favorite new toy, bringing on a new word: "itt-teee!" (tr. "pretty"-You really have to hear it to appreciate the cute factor.)

Last, but definitely not least, my little man whose joyeux de vive always puts a smile on my face: "I can imagine this is how the Boxcar Children must have felt!" 11yo C., after thinking he was "lost" in our little 3/4 acre of woods! Love that imagination!

Now head over to Mary's place for some more Tiny Talk!

Those were awesome. I especially liked A's purple teeth comment and memory work! Hope M is continuing to recover nicely. The pic you sent of her sleeping was so sweet. What a little angel.

Loved the "God created Genesis One" - soooo cute! I bet you get a lot of Tiny Talk with 5 kids being home schooled. I only have one child that really "talks" right now. The middle brother likes to point and grunt. The baby just razzes a lot! :)

Thanks for sharing! Tiny Talk always brings a smile to my face!

Oh my goodness. I laughed out loud at the Genesis 1. These were so cute. I think I need the full effect of "pretty" - maybe it is time for you to join the vlogging :)

Loving all of these. Thinking of M tonight!

I enjoyed visiting this evening! I'm so glad you popped over recently... it looks to me like we have a lot in common. Your "favorite books" list sounds familiar! :)

I love tiny talk. My youngest is now almost 6 (can it be POSSIBLE????) but I feel like he's cuter than ever. He's hit that age where he still says cute things, but he's so serious and he is loving his new, bigger vocabulary. Which is used randomly and not always correctly. :) But who's going to tell? It brings Mommy too much pleasure, and she's hanging on for all she's worth to the remnants of childhood.

I'll be back, I'm sure, but first... Thanksgiving. Have a good one.

Loved all the quotes but esp. Colin's imagination. I think that way still!

I am laughing so hard at the purple teeth. How funny. My almost thirteen year old was sitting at the table last night and burst out in an excited, "Dude!" I love this age! Really, I do.
