You made it! Here it is... the blog where you get to sit back and laugh at - or be completely horrified by - life with 5 kids, 2 parents, some frogs, a cat & a rabbit (and those are just the creatures we know about).


Things You Hear...

I know the whole "kids say the darndest things" phenomenon is not new. I've even blogged about it before. The other day, however, I decided to write down some of the weird, silly, or inappropriate things I heard in my house. Here's a small sampling of the ridiculousness that is my life:

Mom, Sean's gargling soda from last night!
Apparently, someone - who shall remain unnamed PJ - left a glass of Diet Coke on the table. Patrick thought I should know that Sean decided to use it as mouthwash at seven in the morning.

I peed on the toilet!
Charlotte, announcing the fact that she started potty training herself at three in the morning. Because she's a pain in my ass. Or because she's trying to free me of the diaper hell I've been in for 8 1/2 straight years.

No, Charlotte. Only boys can stand when they pee. Because they have a wiener.
Sophie, explaining the ways of the world to her little sister.

Keep buttering! Keep buttering!
What I heard Sophie shouting from the other end of the house. I really hoped she was referring to toast. Unfortunately, she wasn't.

My finger was stuck but Sophie buttered it and it came out.
Sean got his finger stuck in the clasp of Mobay's leash, so Sophie grabbed the butter off the counter and took care of that problem. Ingenious. I love when these kids take care of problems without my help. I think. 

She's strangling him!
This one was in my notes, but I can't remember  a.) who said it, b.) who was the strangler or c.) who was strangled. It's a toss-up, really. And a testament to how nuts this place is.

These bubbles suck.
Charlotte, bemoaning her dollar store bubbles and the fact that they just keep popping. I really need a "swear jar." For myself. 

I'm listening to the MUFFETS!!!!
Sean walking around with earbuds in his ears and an old iPod on shuffle. He was a little excited when a Muppets song came on.

You need a little more eyeshadow.
Lucy conspiring with Sophie. This usually ends with Charlotte looking like a baby streetwalker. 

Put your head on my shoooooulder. Whisper in my ear, PIZZA.
Charlotte singing her favorite bedtime song. And replacing the lyrics for a midnight snack.

These little quotes are just a small sampling of the things that can be heard in one day in my house. Needless to say, it's always interesting around here.

Can't think of a better way to start the day, than reading adorable quotes out of the mouths of babes!

It's always good to get a chuckle out of these guys. They're pretty wacky.

Someone walking by my office saw me spit my coffee on my monitor. Usually I am just sleeping, so this is probably an improvement.

@ IT Guy: that comment just made my whole morning! I literally "LOLed" at the visual image.

The jury is still out on whether spitting at your computer is an improvement over sleeping at it. ;)
