The Dizzy Chicken
- I asked my daughter, "Why did the chicken cross the road?" She thought for a minute and said, "Maybe it just wasn't paying attention."

- A friend was visiting family in Denver,CO. While there he ran into our daughter and her three children. The youngest, a six year old boy, when asked what he and his family had done that day, the child replied that he and his family had gone on a hike. Our friend asked him the following question: What is the difference between a hike and a march? The child became thoughtful for a moment or two and finally replied, "music"!

- One day I was driving my 3-year-old son and newborn son (Brody) to the Dr's for a check-up and my 3-year-old said, "Mom, you need to have another baby." "Why?" I asked. "Because Brody is MY baby."

Too much information
- My 4 year old often gets constipated right at dinner time. One time she was bent over in agony complaining that her stomach hurt. Her 7-year old sister went right over and gave her a hug, and said sympathetically, "Is it your uterus?" Hmm.... Did I give too much information in the birds and bees talk?
- I went to my daughter's preschool conference and the teacher laughed and said one area of assessment that she failed - she honestly thinks her middle name is Gorgeous (you can thank my husband for that one!)

My adorable dare devil
- My two year old is (by far) the most active and inventive of my four children... he says and does the most incredible things! Just this morning he got into the cabinet and pulled out a Capri Sun juices box, opened it and took a juice pouch out, he inserted his cheerios between one of his musical toys, he pushed a small chair towards his closet to get a toy from over a shelf.... It drives me nuts... I'm a work from home mom, so it's pretty tough to balance :-D Oh! He also mimicked me scolding his two older sisters... I better watch myself more closely. LOL.
