1. Big Butts! When Clint was 5, everynight when I would tuck him into bed he would always say to me " I love you, you are a beautiful woman! " I don't know why he would say this or what started it but it went on for about 2 years. Then when Ethan was about 5, not to be outdone by his big brothers, yells to me..."Mom, Mommy, Mom............I LOVE your BIG BUTT! " It was sooooo funny, I couldn't stop laughing, which led to them saying that to me for quite a few night later. I seriously think he thought this would be a nice thing to say. i still laugh when I think about it :)
2. Boys, boys, and more boys!!! I haven't for a loooong time thought I would have a daughter! Once when I only had Clint and Ethan, I had my little brothers over ( who are not much older than my kids). We where on a walk down our driveway ( I can still see it ) My brother Isaac was out in front, then Brother Josiah, and next baby brother Michael followed by Clint running and myself pushing Ethan in the stroller. Five boys in a row, spaced by about 2 yrs in age. I had a thought that this was going to be me someday- 5 BOYS!!!! Now I know that didn't happen but I wonder what it would have been like had that happened ( boy, I'm glad it didn't ;-)
4. butter. Audrey has been dealing with a bad case of cradle cap. I have such a hard time trying to keep myself from picking at it. The other day, someone told me that they used butter on their baby's head and that it worked. So, I had to try it. I was amazed at how fast it came off (all of it too! ). But after giving her a bath and washing her hair 3 times, the butter has NOT come out! He hair is soooooo greasy. I'll never do that again! I would rather just keep that cradle cap than having my baby smell like popcorn for a week!
