.:Quotes of the Summer:.
Pictures and quotes from the last few months from our little guy. (The ones we remember and wrote down.)
O: Mom, what is camouflage?
R: It is the coloring animal and people use to blend into their surrounding to hide.
O: Yeah, like on Diego. I need to turn on my camo so that I am not caught by a predator.
After drilling me with questions regarding how babies get in tummies.
O: Here is the line on my stomach that my baby popped out of it.
Then it cried and that is how Makenzy was born.
And I don’t want to go through that ever again.
R: Me neither.
R: Soon you will start school again with a new class and a new teacher.
O: I don’t want a new class. Or a new teacher. I don’t need new friends. I need Mrs. Teresa.
R: O, what do you want for breakfast?
O: Toast and cereal. And I’m gonna need a big bowl of chips.
O to Nana: My mom is my favorist mom in the whole wide world.
(My heart melting!!)
O: Mom, remember that Jesus is in our hearts?
R: Yes, is he in your heart too?
O: Yeah, in my heart and in my belly.
O: Mom, I am growing up. I am growing up like Andy (from Toy Story). And I am getting bigger and bigger.
R: I know you are.
O: And when I grow up, I am going to talk like this- talk, talk, talk, talk talk.
R: O, do you think you ever want a baby brother or sister?
O: No, not really.
R: Why not?
O: I do not want any of Aunt Christina’s children.
R: (after time out) Where do you go when you have to go?
O: In the toilet. But remember when I went on my sock? That was funny.
(Crawling up his loft bed)
O: Mom, can you hold my crap?
R: Umm, yeah. (Laughing and ashamed. Mental note- do not use that word).
O: Is the lake house far away?
R: Yes, O we just left our house.
(EVERY TWO MINUTES THIS HAPPENED…UNTIL)
O: Is our house far away?
R: Yes, we are half way there.
O: So the lake house is close?
R: No, still only half way there.
O: NOOOOO- everything is too far away.
(The rest of the trip was- Are we close to the lake house?- Every two minutes.)
After Matt got in trouble at the lake
O: Mom, I need to see Matt.
R: He is in trouble, he made a bad choice.
O: Well, maybe I can talk to Connie for him.
O: Mom, where is dad?
O: Oh man, again? He went there yesterday.
O: Mom, is Makenzy my cousin? And I am her cousin?
R: Yes- you are cousins.
O: Then who is my sister?
R: You don’t have a sister. Would you like a sister?
O: Yes. I think we should get Kyah as my sister. Or Morgan.
R: Really, well that’s not how it works.
O: You’re right. Kyah is my friend. And Morgan and Kyler too.
Can’t believe we are at the end of summer. We have survived a broken arm, swim lessons, the zoo, the aquarium, bowling, sleep-overs, a week away with an amazing group of students in Chicago/O at nana & papa’s and great week at the lake with some amazing friends.
I love school supplies (and fall)- but I am not ready to start thinking about school starting yet. I wish I were working on my classroom and going to meetings- but I am still waiting for the door to fly open and for the crazy adventure of teaching to begin. O will be starting full-day preschool in the next few weeks- which just makes me the more crazy thinking about him being somewhere else all week. Very bittersweet. (A teaching job would make it easier- dear Lord hear my prayer!)
