The Five of Us, Spring 2014

The Five of Us, Spring 2014

Seriously, Mom. Seriously.

Today, we were talking about the fact that the kids' birthdays are coming up next month. Ya know, that Pea is two-turning-three and that Punk is three-turning-four. Stuff like that.

Punk: "When I turn FIVE, I'm gonna get legs.*"
Me: "Honey, you already have legs."
Punk: "M-o-o-o-o-m! I mean HARD legs."
Dadders: "Well, what's gonna happen to the legs you have now, Punk?"
Punk, with every bit of seriousness: "They're gonna fall off."
Of course we began giggling.
Punk: "Seriously, Mom. Seriously!"
It was too funy!

*One of the neighbor kids, who happens to be five years old, was born without his lower legs and is really into his prosthetic legs these days.

Talk To Me

I blog for myself and my kids and I would do it even if no one else cared, but I do like to hear from you (and think it's a wee bit creepy of you to voyeurize us without my knowing it). So, please leave a comment from time to time, or email me anytime at Much obliged, I'm sure.
