(Get your mind out of the gutter!)
As a parent, one of my most favorite things is listening to my kids talk. I love to hear the thoughts that come out of their heads. Tonight before bed we were all sitting around chatting. Here is how our conversation went:
Kassidy: Hey mom, you know how I take the trash out sometimes here?
Kassidy: Well, I was thinking, if it's ok with you... and if it's not ok just tell me... but if it's ok with you I could go to all our neighbor's houses and take out their trash too and they can pay me. Then I can send all the money to some kids in Africa or to one of the kids on Reece's Rainbow.
Me: Well honey, that's a really nice idea, but we don't know most of our neighbors so that would be too dangerous.
Kassidy: Well maybe when I grow up I can donate all my toys to an orphanage or a hospital in Africa.
(Not too sure where the Africa talk is coming from... school maybe.)
Me: Yeah or you could donate them to a hospital here... and you don't have to wait until you're grown up.
Kennedy: I love Jesus!!!
Me: I'm glad baby, I love Him, too. (But that was VERY random! LOL)
Kameron: How old will Kennedy be when we're grown up?
Me: Well that depends, what age is "grown up"?
Kameron: Like... 70 or 20...
Me: 70?! So I'm not grown up yet?!
Kennedy: (folding her hands) Dear Jesus thank you for food Amen!
Me: Amen. (I guess LOL)
Kassidy: I would say like 25...
Me: So I wasn't grown up when I had you or Kameron! haha
Kassidy: OK 20.
Me: OK When you're 20, Kameron will be 18, Kennedy will be 16 and Keeghan will be 13.
Kassidy: Wow you're going to have 3 teenagers at one time. I sort of feel sorry for you, but not really.
Me: Thanks! haha
Kennedy: (insert incoherent babbling here)... and Kassidy's SILLY!
Me: Yes, Kassidy is silly lol.
Me: OK it's time to say our prayers and go to bed.
Prayers, I love yous hugs and kisses and now they're upstairs whispering when they're supposed to be sleeping. I love my kids!
