My Life is a Comedy.....

If my life is such a comedy, where is my laugh track? I want one. That will be my book title……when I finally start writing.

Life has been pretty stressful lately with the start to school for four of us and start of college for another. But that doesn’t mean we haven’t had our funnies.

Here are some outtakes from the recent days….

Abby: Mommy, I want some slimy with my sandwich.
Mom: Slimy?
Abby: Yep.
Mom: Oh, salami.

Mom: Anna Grace, what did you eat for lunch today at school?
AG: Cake.
Mom: Only cake?
AG: Yes, I picked the same lunch choice as you but didn’t like it.
Mom: Baby, choose what you like and not what I pick!

Abby at school: Miss Anne, when you have a minute, can you please get me some more pancakes?
Yes! The child is learning!! If only her big sister would follow along.

Abby to daddy: I’m watching you. (complete with the fingers on the eyes before pointing to dad)

Anna Grace: I likedid that kind before but don’t anymore. (and the kid can READ so well!)

Abby to dad: You are too old to think. (note: daddy did not like this comment)

Abby: My big brudder makes me milkhakes. (not a typo….Abs can’t say her /s/ sound)

First grade + game night with daddy = exhaustion. Ten minutes in the car circling the neighborhood. Asleep. Perhaps not a funny but a reality!

Scenes from Friday: Pulled up after school to see Katie and Catlan in the driveway. Two little girls screaming from the car.....Katie!! Catlan!!! They were only home for the night but made two little girls happy.

There you have it. A snapshot into our lives from the past 36 hours. I need to start keeping track of our funnies more often. But when I do, I hear……

Mom is writing stuff down again. Must be for Facebook or the blog. Good grief....

Whenever I pull my camera out the big kids say, "Oh no ... this is for the blog, isn't it?"

Isn't it a blessing to have the little ones to enjoy their cuteness and silliness amongst all the chaos? I think that often with our hectic lives. They make us stop and smile and boy do we need that! : )

Hope the craziness ends soon but at least you can see the humorous things. I see them, I just don't seem to write them any more.

Kids say the funniest thing-- glad you can laugh about it! Your cake-eater sounds like my girl -- who, if she could, would only eat chips for every meal! Keep smiling! :)

Love, love, love the "you're too old to think" comment, especially as a neuropsychologist. She was actually on to something there!
