I love to record some of the funny things the kids say. So here are some recent funnies!

Delaney and her “chothers”

When we went out to dinner not too long ago and the kids were deciding who would sit with who, Delaney said “we’ll sit with each other and you can sit with your chother”. The “chothers” have come out a couple other times too, but that was the best one. Maybe you had to be there, but I think it is really cute.

Baby-talk — The kids’ mom just had a baby a couple of months ago, so it has sparked some funny baby conversations. A good one from each kid (at this point, I was pregnant already, but the kids didn’t know yet)…


We were talking about how our families are connected and how he could potentially have a sibling from his mom and a sibling from his dad that would not even be related to each other – how strange, right? Well, this is how the rest of the conversation went:

Andrew: “well, at least I don’t have to worry about you and dad having a baby.”

Jil: “what would make you say that??”

Andrew: “well, because only MOMs can have babies and your just a STEP-MOM.” (said with a little “duh” kind of attitude)

Jil (trying to hold back the hysterics): “well, Andrew, what do you think your mom was before she had you? she wasn’t a mom yet and she was able to have a baby….”

Andrew: speechless with total look of bewilderment. I guess he didn’t realize that his mom had an actual life before he was born!

Delaney — Grow baby grow!

At bedtime, D and I were snuggling on the reading couch doing stories, and she mentioned something about her new baby brother, Joey. I asked her if she missed Joey, or if it was nice to be at our house and have a break from the new baby for a couple of nights. She told me that she missed the baby and wanted us to get one at our house. Here is how the conversation went:

Jil: “Delaney, how would we get a baby at our house?”

Delaney: “you just grow one in your belly!”

Jil: “how would I grow a baby in my belly?”

Delaney reaches to my belly, gives it a pat and a kiss and says “you just say ‘grow baby grow’ and then you get a baby in your belly!”

If she only knew there was already one growing in there! It was really sweet. We thought when we finally told the kids that we are having a baby, that she might think her “grow baby grow” tactic really worked!

Telling the kids about FB

On Thanksgiving weekend, we told the kids that we are having a baby, and it will be here in June. Being that they just got a new baby at their mom’s house, this announcement was no big deal to them. However, Andrew was able to muster up a reason to be excited about the new baby —

Andrew: “that means I’ll get to eat birthday cake TWICE in my birthday month from now on!!” (his bday is June 27)

I love my step-kids. They add so much to our life — and lots of laughs, that is for sure!!!
