love those little moments when I over hear my kids say something that absolutely cracks me up.
Brooklyn was mad at Ethan the other day and I overheard her say to him
“Ethan, you shattered my heart into a hundred pieces”
Ethan’s response without thinking was
“Well Brooklyn, No, I couldn’t have because that’s not even on my bucket list for today.”
As I was grocery shopping this past weekend I got the usual 3 calls from Brooklyn
The 1st call was “Mom, when are you going to be home?”
The 2nd call was ““Mom, when are you going to be home?”
The 3rd Call was “Mom, I have a red bite on my bum and it itches, I will ask dad if I can take a picture of it to send it to you.”
And yes these 3 calls were after I had already asked to only be called in an emergency
As soon as I got home Brooklyn say’s to me
“Mom, I watched the funniest episode of Saturday Night Live and you have to watch it”.
Oh my…. to hear my 8 year old tell me to watch Saturday Night live
It’s not a show they would typically ever watch or be allowed to watch but I guess their dad showed them an episode that was making fun of The Shark Tank, which is a show we watch together.
It was pretty funny but even funnier was Brooklyn telling me “to watch a certain episode of Saturday Night live”.
Brooklyn had been listening to kids bop every evening on her iPod.
We did not think it was quite appropriate for bed time music so took the Ipod out of her room and put some nice classical music on for her.
She was less than pleased. The next day after protesting this change in music policy She said
"Dad, you say my music is not appropriate but c'mon...... how can " I need your love" not be appropriate?" 8 going on 16 I think
we carve pumpkins around here simply for the pumpkin seeds...so good roasted in coconut oil with salt sprinkled over them
And I love the fact my kids have a dad who takes the time to invest in them.
He takes interests in what interests them.
He plays with them and reads to them!
Michael has been reading this book with Ethan every night. Its so great to overhear them reading and talking.♥
and now for some more phone pictures
I took a day off work to be a chaperon on Brooklyn's field trip to the Tillamook Forestry Center
Imagine a rainy/cold/windy day and a bus packed to the rim..with 70+ students/teachers and Chaperons.
Then getting off the bus and walking through a wet forest. It was beyond worth it because I got to be with my girl and her class!
Her class is learning all about Salmon and their life cycle. Her classroom has a incubator of Salmon eggs that the kids love to check on.
Brooklyn's end of the season soccer party. She played awesome all season and loved being goalie.
Ethan always amazes me at just how good he is with little ones
During Brooklyn's soccer games Ethan would take care of one of the other players little Brothers
This little guy fell in love with Ethan and vica versa...so cute to see their little bond.
Proud of my boy for caring so nicely for little ones
and this cutie doing her home work so nicely
Ethan cooking a healthy dinner of crust less veggie quiche and a Paleo Apple crisp with almond flour and maple syrup
He is a wonderful sou chef and is officially hired!
and Brooklyn wrote her daddy a note at school the other day
