No, I don't have any pics to post (sorry) but I do have two funny things the kids have said (sorry again- I am one of "those" parents).

We flew to Seattle for Christmas to spend the holiday with Mack's family. On our way home we had a layover in Minneapolis. We got all the kids off the plane and immediately headed for the restrooms. Mack volunteered to take C-Ray with him, and C-Ray actually consented to go (yes, this is a big deal, as C-Ray has "issues" with anyone but Mommy seeing him in a... private setting). When Mack got into the restrooms, he found the stalls to be filthy so he informed C-Ray that he was going to go standing up (a first for our man-child). C-Ray's little venture was successful (and, amazingly enough, scream-free), and as he was going he says to Mack, "I gotta show this to Apple!"

This weekend we took the kids on a spur-the-moment little trip to the Wisconsin Dells. It was a great time, except that Little One did not sleep very well. As a result, Mommy did not sleep very well and was pretty tired as we sat at breakfast Sunday morning. Banter began between Mom and Dad about whether or not Mommy would fall asleep on the car ride home. I maintained that I would not, while Mack replied that he knew me better than that. Apple says to me, "Mom, you can't sleep in the van. What if we need to ask you something?" (Let me give you the Mom Translation: "Mom, if you are sleeping in the car, there will be no one for me to whine to. Who will I ask every five minutes how much longer until we are home? Who will I tell every ten minutes that I am hungry? Who will listen to me say how bored I am? What will be the point in saying, every 20 minutes, that I have to go to the bathroom, whether I really do or not? Who will tell me things I already know, like that my coloring book is in my backpack, when I ask seven different times?) Oh yeah, did I mention that the car ride to the Dells is only an HOUR AND A HALF??

Oh, the joys of parenthood. Enjoy it now because in a very few years they will all be teenagers! (and besides, they are adorable, perfect, smart, funny...... children!)

Oh, Amy- I laughed on your last one! I am glad to know that our children are not the only ones that need a 24 hour concierge! :)
