Funnies From The Bugs...

I've been so caught up in my "ME" journey that I haven't taken the time to really have some good bloggy Doodlebug and Lovebug moments. I am going to remedy that one right now!!

Chris: I can't remember what it was that he said, but it was something really dorky

Me: You are such a ding dong.

Mitchell: Mommy, don't call Daddy a ding dong. He's not a doorbell!


Last night I picked Georgia up from the nursery at church and asked how she did. (She had on her Sesame Street jean jacket.) They said she did great and that they enjoyed having her. One lady said "She is so funny! I told her that I liked Zoe and Elmo on her coat and she looked at me and said 'My JACKET.' I mean she flat TOLD me, it's a jacket. Can you believe it?"

Me: Oh, yeah. I believe it.


The other day Chris had just gotten out of the shower and was getting ready for work. Mitchell had just come in our room and I could hear Georgia in there making all kinds of noise in her crib. (Her room is attached to our room by french doors that we leave cracked open.) I went in to get her up and found that she had taken her fleece, footie pajamas off and was sitting in just her diaper. She got all happy when she saw me and said this while she rubbed her naked baby belly:

"Hi. Joja shower Daddy."

Yep, that's right. She was all ready for the shower, just like Daddy.


Mitchell made a book the other day at school. Mrs. G. had written words for him (dictated, I believe) on the inside two pages, but not on the cover. I wanted to know what the picture of the cover was so I asked him to tell me. I got out the sharpie and wrote it on there. How could I not? I mean, it's not every day that Jesus drives to the park.

I should add that some of the drawing is hills. Some of it is Jesus. Some of it is children. And some of it (when he showed me) is actually Jesus' driving route.
I think that my favorite thing about those two at the moment is that they really, truly love and I mean L-O-V-E each other. It's so fun to pick Mitchell up from school. Georgia usually doesn't even wait for me to finish signing him out in the attendance book before she's running in to find him. I have yet to see one single day where they didn't do a big, running, "The hills are alive" run toward each other with outstretched arms. Then they do this big, huge hug and giggle at each other. You would think by now, after about 3 months of this, that I'd be over it by now. But I'm not. I look forward to it every time. So do the teachers -- one of them was in the bathroom the other day when we came and she actually said "Oh, darn! I missed the big reunion moment!"


So, there ya go. Life with The Doodlebug and The Lovebug. I wouldn't trade it for anything in the world.

Sarbucks has Egg Nog lattes??? Now why did you have to go and tell me that? We had a starbucks open earlier this year. I dont like their coffee but I may have to try their egg nog latte

Jamie said...

What sweet kids you have. I think they got it from their mommy. ;)

It is so sweet that they love each other so much. My boys are like that too. The oldest (6) takes care of the youngest (3) like he is his mommy. They fuss at times also, but for the most part they love each other.
We would laugh so much less if we didnt have kids.
Today after church we were decorating our Christmas tree (dont ask why so early) talking about Jesus' birthday and my 6 year old, Lake said "So Mommy how old IS Jesus anyway?"
Struck me as hilarious for some reason.

M sure knows how to make a person smile huh? I would love to meet him IRL. He seems like such a sweet boy. G is too cute for words! I love how she wanted to shower like Daddy! What a sweet pair of kiddos you have Tara!

Terri said...

That is so special. You've got to love it when kids are young and willing to show so much emotion. They don't care who sees it. They are too cute!
