Various Cute Kid Things

It’s been a while since I’ve done a cute kid post…so, it’s time 🙂

While we were at the twins club Halloween party, I was standing there talking with another mom and Logan did what every kid has done at least once in their life…run up to the wrong legs and give a hug. Logan looked up (while hugging these legs), said “Nope!” (pronounced “Nopeff” in Logan-speak) and calmly switched over to my legs. Silly kid 🙂

Maggie has been working really hard in her speech class and can often be heard practicing things that she’s been learning. . . therefore, I should not have been taken by surprise when she asked if I wanted to hear her “F word” song. After a minor pause from me,  I heard all about Foot, Friends, French Fries…

Maggie has this cute thing where she gives people pretend gifts. You have to make a show of opening these pretend gifts and ask her what it is. While playing with Daddy, he asked what the gift was and she said, “It’s a hat!” He mimicked putting it on and asked if it was a fedora. To which she said “No, it’s for Daddy!” HAH! Let Dora get her own stinkin’ hat tee hee.

Burke’s drawing teacher drew an outline of him and had him color things in by looking in a mirror to see what he needed on his face and by using a ruler to measure his arms and things to make sure that his drawing was proportional. Note that he even drew in the grass stains on his knees…


Blog Farts

Blog Fartsnoun. Def: Crappy ideas that are too short to make a real blog post, but when combined, join forces to make one unified, albeit half a$$ed, post. see also: memes, surveys.

I’m just “borrowing” the term  🙂

(If you follow me on Twitter, you’ve probably seen a bunch of these before. I figure if I get ’em here, they’ll eventually end up in my Blog Book.)


My jaw dropped when I heard this from Maggie this morning: “Nancy, can you help me please?” Uhm…ya. That’d be Mommy, thank you.


Burke plays this cute game where he “glues” parts of your body (usually hands) and then sticks them somewhere … like together or to your arms or whatever. You have to play along and not be able to get unstuck until he squirts “water” onto said part. Many times, as soon as he “glues” my hands, I’ll be quicker than him and get stuck to his arms. A few days ago when we played, he did his usual “water” squirt but I told him that it wouldn’t work because I was stuck with Superglue. He just smiled and said, “But this is super water!”


Stellar mommy moment:  stapled the back of Burke’s bathing suit together so it wouldn’t fall down. (In case you’re wondering…it didn’t work very well.)


Is it wrong to put the TV on to distract the kids so I could try to finish my book? It was Sesame Street…


Something I never thought I’d hear myself say: “Burke! It’s not very smart to scare the cat when you have no clothes on!”
