Bath time conversations

Audrey – “Guess what I’m gonna be when I grow up.”

Amelia – “Give me some guesses!”

Audrey – “A vegetarian, a veterinarian, a princess, or a gardener?”

Audrey pauses for a moment, looks at me, and says, “what’s a vegetarian?”

Daddy – “A person that only eats vegetables.”

Audrey – “Oh, we’ll never mind!!”

Life Lessons from a 4 yr old

Audrey shared a story about a kid in her first grade class which led into a conversation about loving others and always being nice.

Daddy “We should always be nice to people and treat them the way we want to be treated. We never know what other kids might be going through”

Audrey – “Yeah, like if kids are being bullied, we should be nice to them”

Daddy – “That’s right!”

Amelia (4 yrs old) – “ I know! I know! Like if you’re in the bathroom and there’s someone else in the bathroom and they keep trying to look under the stall and see ur butt, that’s bullying”

You always keep us laughing!

Circle what you want…

Audrey,

Your mom gave you a catalog to look at fall clothes for school and told you to circle what you want…

Looks like we’ll be getting a dog soon. You’ve been wanting a dog or a cat for so long and even though dad is allergic to them, I can’t keep you from experiencing the joy of a pet any longer. I wonder what you’ll name her? I’m already excited to see your excitement and I haven’t even looked for a dog yet.

Love you girl!

Daddy

Audrey Funnies

We’re doing the Daniel Fast for 21 days and we’re on day 5. We’ve talked about it and you’ve began noticing that mommy and daddy aren’t eating or drinking our normal stuff. Tonight you wanted a snack before bedtime and we let you have some carrots and a little bit of ranch…

Audrey: “Mommy, you can share my ranch with me, if you want to.”

Mommy: “Audrey, mommy and daddy are giving up ranch for Jesus right now.”

Audrey: “I wanna give up ranch for Jesus too…after I get done eating all of this!”😂

You crack us up girl!!! Mommy and daddy loves you!

We took your paci’s😂😂…wait for it…

Day 1 of no more paci’s…you got a card in the mail…we asked you to read it to us.

The pre-story… we planned on taking your paci’s on Valentines Day so we told you Cupid was going to get them and give them to little girls that didn’t have any paci’s. in return Cupid was going to give you some good candy. Unfortunately, you got sick around Valentines Day so we didn’t take them. 

Mrs. Rita got you a gift card to Build-A-Bear for your birthday and mommy seized the opportunity to ask you if you wanted to give your paci to your new teddy bear (named Pumpkin…pronounced Punkin).  You excitedly said yes so we let you put the paci inside the bear. You helped put the stuffing inside the bear and then tied it up!  We ran into Mamaw Debbie in the mall and we prompted you to show her your new teddy bear and tell her about it. You told her that you put your paci inside. At that point, you realized that you didn’t have a paci and a mini breakdown ensued. Then you reminded us that you had more paci’s at home so mommy reminded you that Cupid had came by the house while we were gone and got all your paci’s for the little girls that needed them.  When we got home, we checked the mail and told you there was a card for you. We asked you to read it and mommy got it on video. 4-8-17

Conversations with a 2 year old…😂

Tonight during bedtime routine…Me: Audrey, do you know that daddy will love you forever and ever?

Audrey: Yes

Me: Do you know that daddy would do anything in the world for you?

Audrey: OK, stay home from work tomorrow. #backfire

Also tonight….

Audrey:  I want Jesus to come out of my heart right now…I want to see him. (As she lifts her shirt and looks at her belly button like Jesus was getting ready to come out)

Love my girls!!!!

How quick things change…

Last couple mornings I’ve left Audrey crying for daddy as I had to go to work. Breaks my heart. This morning she’s doing the same thing. As I’m trying to figure out how to slip away Kelsey ask Audrey if she wants to go to the park…Audrey looks at daddy…quits crying and says…”you go to work! I go to park! Bye daddy!”😂😂. How quickly I was traded for the park!😂😂
