Fighting all of the emotions I have that school starts in just a few days and instead deciding to laugh and treasure all of their one liners. Sharing some that are both pre-Lucia and post.
Ethan: I am the cleanest person in this house.
Me: What do you mean?
Ethan: Well, I showered last night and went to Confession this morning.
Caden: I just don’t think you are smart mom.
Caden: It’s okay mom, I still love you. I just don’t think you are smart.
Me: You don’t have to be scared to poop on the potty.
Briella: No, poop is beautiful. Flowers are beautiful. Horses are beautiful.
Ethan holding Lucia and she begins to fuss a bit.
Ethan: Oh you want your mother. Is she your number one draft pick?
Grace: Mom, even though you are carrying low and the baby is probably a boy. I will scream if it’s a girl. But even if the baby is a boy, I bet it will still be cute.
Me: Would you like more lunch?
Caden: Yes, I will take more my darling sweetheart.
Ethan: Mom, you are getting really fat!
Me: (blank stare)
Ethan: …I mean you look like you are getting pretty big.
Me: Briella could you please try to use the potty.
Briella: No thank you mom.
Grace: Mom, I heard God speak to me.
Me: Oh that’s beautiful, what did he say?
Grace: You are God’s precious girl.
Ordering football napkins for his birthday party.
Ethan: Let’s get the New Orleans Saints napkins.
Me: Umm, that’s a lot of napkins.
Ethan: Well, at least they are holy.
Briella pretending to have her baby doll cry.
Me: Oh your baby is fussing.
Briella: Baby wants Mama Mary.
Noticing that she has the baby now laying on a pillow.
Me: So sweet, your baby is sleeping.
Briella: My baby is sleeping with Mama Mary.
