[Merikalyn and Nolyn were playing house and this is the conversation I overheard.]

M: So, where is your family from?
N: Heaven.
M: Oh? Did your family die?
N: Yes, my family died on the cross.
M: Your family is Jesus????
N: Yes!

[Here's a conversation that took place around dinner time a couple nights ago.]

M: Mom, where do potatoes come from?
Me: They grow in the ground.
N: Where do carrots come from?
Me: They grow in the ground, too!
M: Where do cinnamon rolls come from?
Me: Well, someone gets together all the incredients and prepares them. Sometimes they are made in big factories with big bowls and mixers.
N: Oh! Where were you made from?
Merika: From Nana and Poppa, silly.
N: Nuh-uh! From Daddy's rib!

[Cue conversation later from Dad who explained that only Eve was made from Adam's rib.]

I can't remember what we were talking about the other day, but Merika sweetly piped in, "When I grow up, I wanna be a Mommy."

That is SO incredibly cute! Don't you just wanna eat them up? So precious, so very, very precious...

My oldest said one day he was gonna marry me 'cause he loves me so much. I told him no, I'm already married to your daddy. So he said he'd marry his sister. I said no, you don't marry your sister. Same with his cousin. Indignant, he put his hands on his hips and said, "So who am I supposed to marry, a stranger?!"

The wisdom of a 5 year old.

I love overhearing conversations between the kiddos! I usually end up running way, stifling my laughter so as not to interrupt them. You just never know what they are going to say...but if you listen long enough, you know what they have been hearing! Sounds like your kiddos are listening, and you are saying the "right" things :)

Hi Mandy, I got your big cyber-hug the other day! :0)
I love over-hearing the kiddos talking, it is so cute! My daughter is 4 & she thinks when she gets to be a teenager that she & I are going to be "twins" & wear each other's clothes! :0) LOL

Your little ones are sooo cute!
