"You should be GRATEFUL!"

Mom, "Okay kids! Time to clean up all the toys, everywhere!"
....I leave the room...down the hall I hear-
Gaje, "You know what Pyper?! You should be GRATEFUL for these toys. You know why?! Because Mom bought them for you. Did you know there are kids that don't even have toys?! AND they have to sleep on floors, and sometimes they don't have food. Yeah, that's right their poor. Aren't you happy you are in our family? I am."
Pyper, "Yeah. otay. Let's clean up dees toys Gajee."

*I am so GRATEFUL for my beautiful, wonderful kids. They are so sweet. I am grateful we have a house & food & eachother. Never a dull moment around here :)

I'm Comin'... I'm Comin'

Oh for reals! I was in working on some things when I heard Oakley fussing, but it immediately followed Pyper with, "Oh, it's otay O! I'm comin', I'm comin'" in a mothering tone. I waited a few seconds and Pyper proudly announced, "I gave O her paci... she's otay." I smiled and told her good job. She asked me, " You poud of me mom?!" I told her I was definitely proud of her and what a good helper she was. She then proceeded to tell me the rest of her adventure. "Mom. I put Oakley in her crib." WHAT?! I had left her in her swing! I ran into the room and saw Oakley lying peacefully in her crib....that is way taller than Pyper might I add. Yikes. How that happened, I don't even want to know.
