Overheard

"Mom, the truth is you can get to the Land of Nod by day, it's just much harder." 11yo C.'s waking words to me one day after recently reading Robert Louis Stevenson's poem about dreams.

"I'm having a great time!" 13 yo S., who helped teach the four-year-olds at Vacation Bible School last week.

"Mom, can you give me the two dollars you owe me for babysitting?" yet another reminder there is a teen in the house.

"Mom, you look lovely!" 3 yo A., upon seeing me in my swimsuit (?!?) It must be the little silver clasp on the top, b/c it certainly wasn't about me...

"I prefer NOT to go fast down this hill and slam on the brakes!" A's comment one day as we were in the car. Never too early to be a backseat driver!

"Aow no" tr. "I don't know" - 2yo (going on 6!) K's newest phrase - learning to plead ignorance when it will benefit her. :)

That's what a fly on the wall at our house would have heard. For more Tiny Talk Tuesday, go visit Not Before 7.

Awww! I love A's comment about your bathingsuit loveliness. I hate bathingsuits. What a grace that our children call us 'lovely'!

Oh a teenage babysitter...nice! Love the bathing suit comment too. What sweet words..even if they are really for a silver clasp ;).

Love that blast from the past photo. WOW!

Happy TTT!
