Our Kids- Out of the mouthes of babes.

1st grade is 2 weeks away and Diana is not so sure how she feels about "growing up".
What does this mean for a 6 yr.old anyway?
Last night Diana was crying in bed, I asked her what was wrong.

Diana- "Mommy I do not want to grow up"!
Me- "Diana, I promise you, you will be happy to grow a little each year".
Diana- "No I won't!"
Me- Let's think of things you can do when you grow up."
Diana-" I can stay up later."
Me- "yes"
Diana- "No naps"
Me- "that's right what else"
Diana- "I can say bad words."

This girl knows how to throw me curve balls, she does this often. I thought for a moment and asked "what kind of words are bad?"
Diana responded "I don't know, isn't that what teenagers do, say bad words?

I love my girl.

Gabriel is funny little man, he starting to use his words more which can feel like we live with a caveman. We tend to look to Diana who is fluent in whatever language Gabe is speaking.
Lately we have been living in potty training land, it's an exciting place. The thought of saving $20 a week is close to being a reality. Gabe has done shockingly well "knocking on wood".
Phil and I give Gabe 3 jelly beans after each trip to the potty until one day.....

Me-Gabe you went potty that great!"
Gabe- "Momma no jelly bean."
Me- "No?"
Gabe- " No jelly bean Momma, Gabe want jelly sandwich."
