Jonathan: NOT kitty cat Jeremiah!  Kit Kat!
Jeremiah: Oh...

Unaccomplished dreams

Things Jeremiah has said to me in the last week.
1. Mom, I've just never seen a rainbow.  (Very sad voice)
2. We need to have a sleepover Mom!  All of us!
3. You know what we've never done?  Had a block party!  (Me: What's a block party Jeremiah?)  You know!

Atleast he has dreams.

Sad criminal

This morning Ella got into my purse and rearranged all of my cards.  I caught her plastic handed.  So tonight, when I went to pay for our purchases at K-Mart I accidentally tried to use an expired card.  It was the same account we have, just an old card.

So, upon returning home I began cutting up the card.  The kids were having supper.  Jonathan and Jeremiah wanted to know why I was destroying that card.  I explained to them about how there are people out there who do bad things.  I told them that if someone got ahold of the number on my card then they could steal our money.  Jonathan understood it pretty well, but Jeremiah had this pitiful look on his face.  He said, "But, they will be sad!"  I asked him, "Who will be sad Jeremiah?"  "The people looking in the trash for your number.  If you destroy it then they won't be able to read it, and then they will be sad!"  I told him I really don't care if the people trying to steal my money are sad.  He said, "Well, maybe they like to steal!"  I said, "When you try to do bad things do I let you?"  "Oh no," he answered.  "Well I'm not going to let them either!"
He got on the phone with my mom later and said, "Stealing is bad!"  Atleast he finally got it.  Leave it to Jeremiah to be concerned about the feelings of the possible thief.

Now there's an idea

"Hey Mom!  We should live in a tree house!  We could eat and sleep there!"  ~Jeremiah

Yes.  Because we have no place to eat and sleep.  So we should look for a tree, so that we can accomplish those activities.

Finally got around to it

I've been meaning to start a blog for some time.  My kids are hilarious almost daily.  I need a place to jot down some memories.  I'm usually pretty good once I get started, it's just that first step.  Did I mention how OCD I am?  Well, atleast I finally did it.

Today we went to church, and then we had lunch at a different chinese restaurant than usual.  They had baby lobsters on the buffet.  I mentioned them to Joe, and the boys, particularly Jeremiah, were adamant about going up to see them.  So he took them by on the way out.  Jeremiah wanted to know why they weren't swimming.  Guess they thought it would be like the tank at Red Lobster!

Tonight I looked through the boys books they made in Sunday school of their family.  Jeremiah told me all about how Daddy was wearing Ella's pants and they were way too small.  Jonathan told me "My mommy is dressed so beautifully.  This is her shirt.  Ohhhh oh no.  I forgot her pants."  Art is a work in progress.

As for Ella, well, I caught her sneaking goldfish to Snickers.  Snickers is my parent's yorkie.  We are watching him while they are on vacation.  We've had him for almost a week now.  She must've just figured out the joys of sneaking the dog her food though.  Because every time she did it, she would give a little giggle.  She's a cute sneak.
