Everyone told me that I needed to keep a journal for jotting down all the cute things my little ones would start to say. Wonderful idea, but I forgot. Didn’t write a thing down, and I promise you, I can’t remember when they said their first words, when they were finally potty-trained, when they got their first tooth… I love my little girls, and am giving my life to the process of raising and training them, but I can barely remember anything about those first two years. It’s there, somewhere, in the back of my brain, I’m sure, but I have a sneaking suspicion that I subconsciously (or consciously) tried to block it all out.(smile) 

I did, however, start jotting down some of their cute sayings within the past year or so, and I thought that I would dedicate this little post to them. They bring our lives so much joy, and we are so grateful that they are ours! (They are also way smarter than we give them credit for!)  Maybe you’ll have a few chuckles, and take a few extra moments to enjoy your own little blessings.

“menta-montis praying” = praying mantis

“boomie” = balloon (the girls’ favorite book was “Balloons, Balloons, Balloons” by Dee Lillegard

Whenever we sing the “B-I-B-L-E,” Eva asks if we can sing her song next; the”B-I-B-EVA.” (she thinks we’re singing the “B-I-B-ELLIE.”)

Ellie got this tiny, stuffed kitten whom she promptly named “Yammie-Pie” (Lammie-Pie)(That’s Lammie on the left)

The girls have nick-named my husband’s favorite store-the Harley-Davidson store-the “Brooooom, brooooom” store (you have to do the sound effects, too)

Eva ran into my room one day, crying, and said “Mom, there’s an itsy-bitsy in my room!”

Eva decided to tell me a good-night story the other night, and it went something like this. “Once upon a time, there were two little girls named Eva and Ellie, and they were running through the forest, and then they saw a dinosaur. And then he pooped on their heads. But they wiped it off. With a wipe.”

I was walking around the house one day, looking for something, and one of the girls came up to me and said, “Mom, are you looking for something to sell?” (apparently, I like craigslist way too much!)

We attended a bonfire several months ago, and the girls had so much fun chasing lightening bugs, and seeing how many they could collect. When it was time to leave, we told them that they were going to have to let their little lightening bugs free, and they obeyed right away. When we got them all settled in the car, I told them that I was so proud of them, and that I really appreciated them obeying so well. Eva nodded her head and said, very sweetly, “Yes, and I need a sucker for that.”
