It’s been a while since I’ve shared a kid quote here on Peace Garden Mama. The increasingly refined vocabulary of our youngest, who used to be so generous with his contributions, is partially to blame. But occasionally I still catch one that makes me chuckle. Like this one from the other evening after dinner:
Nick, 5, swiping cookies off the cookie sheet: “What? Dad asked me to bring him three cookies.”
Nick: “Yeah. Why, how many are we s’posed to have?”
Me: “One, maybe two. Three if you’re a Dad, apparently.”
Nick, upon heading out of the kitchen, cookies in hand: “Well I am a boy, and I’m gonna be a Dad someday!”
Ah yeah…someday…life will be great. Someday, taking three cookies will not be suspect activity. (They really were for his dad, who has a heckuva sweet tooth…)
And here’s one for the moms out there. A mother friend sent me this link from GodTube.com. I’m keeping my post short today so you’ll have time to peek at this brief video — a visual of mothers who were asked this question: “If you could go back to before your first baby, what would you tell yourself?” These are their answers…
Q4U: If you’re a parent and could go back the time before your first baby and give yourself some advice, what would it be?
