"You don't talk a lot. I like you."

I love my life. I'm not one to downplay its um, difficulties? but I know that as long as I'm able to laugh with/at my children at least once a day I'll be fine. Tonight my little tidbit of joy came at the dinner table. Leah and Jeff were repeating a line from the movie Up (I don't know lines from this movie because I can't seem to actually sit down and watch it! oh well). They kept saying, "Cross it! Cross it!" and then Jeff said, "You don't talk a lot. I like you." So then the kids started making variations of this. Leah said something like, "You don't eat a lot. I like you." And then Davis said, "You stink a lot. I like you." and then Jeff said, "You smell like stinky bacon. I like you." Davis got a little upset about that one and when Leah said, "You stink a lot. I like you." Davis got really mad. He furiously pointed at Jeff and said "I DO NOT smell like bacon." and then he turned his finger toward Leah and said, "Don't say MY jokes!". I don't know why this is so funny to me but I think it shows his personality perfectly! The boy does not really like to get teased but LOVES to tease. Its a combination only a mother could love :)

LOL we love quoting that movie too! I totally agree about laughing with your kids...sad when it's so hard to do at times...(though I feel like Emma's getting to a more grown-up age where she's getting new levels of funny that I can appreciate more).

LOL! Hard to reprimand them when you're laughing so hard, huh?
