How Does He Know These Things?

Okay, so Kutter has said a few priceless "kids say the darnedest things" this past week. The first happened about a week ago. We were driving down the road and Ryan and I were having a conversation about something or other. Payton was trying to talk to me and I asked her to wait until Ryan and I were done talking. Payton starts crying and Kutter steps in like he usually does to save the day. He says to her, "Payton, Payton!! Don't worry, mom and dad are really good listeners......(pause).......well mom is a really good listener so just wait until she is done!" I was laughing so hard I almost drove off the road. Ryan is a good listener, he is just still not used to being called "dad." I usually have to say "Ryan!" to jolt him into realizing the kids are talking to him.

This next instant happened just today and it was friggin hilarious!! Payton was walking around the house in her swimming suit and from a distance, it looked as though she had her hands in her swimming suit bottoms. Kutter saw this and screamed, "Payton!! That is gross! If you put your fingers in your bum and smell them, they stink real bad!" I looked at him and thought, "I wonder how he knows this?!" Aw, these are the proud moments of being a mother. He was just helping teach his sister one of life's key lessons. That's my boy, so responsible!

Oh my gosh! I laughed so hard at those stories. It totally made my day for about a minute, then I realized how much it made me miss you guys and it made me really sad. Thanks for the boost and then the downer! Just kidding. i can't wait until I have funny stories like that. Well, maybe I can, I get sad that Wyatt is growing so fast. Tell Kutter I am proud that he is such a good big brother!

That is so funny. I need to write down the things my kids say more often because they are always saying something that makes me double over in laughter. You are such a great mom and yes I would say you are addicted to blogging. It's a good addiction though!
