Fun stories

My girls fully understand we pray before we eat.  They are constantly reminding us to pray when we forget.  Yesterday my mom and I were at McDonald's and she was trying to entertain the girls while I ordered food, by the time I got back everyone was wiggly and we just began to dig in.  In between bites Pressy started saying "Thank you" bite, bite "God" bite, bite "food...." bite, bite.  Lyla chimed in "love you, God" bite, bite "Amen".

------------------------------------

My last post was called "Sisterly Love" and I mentioned that the girls are also crazy about their brother.  Its true, they love him and are constantly taking care of him, but he does steal some of their attention at times, and that can be frustrating.  Yesterday when Pressley woke up from her nap she really wanted me to sit on the floor with her and play with the duplo blocks.  I told her I had to feed Kru first but would sit with her as soon as I was done.  She started whining and I told her if she whined I wouldn't sit with her at all.  So she came over and stood next to Kru and I waiting patiently.  I said "I love you, Pressy and I love Kru and I love Lyla" then I asked her if she loved Lyla and she said "yes".  I asked her if she loved Kru and she said "no".  I said "yes, you do!" and she said "no love Kru.  Mommy play blocks!"

Oh well.

-----------------------------------------

Ok, so here is a story where Lyla shows love to Kru.  She is a little mommy -- your typical big sister.  Kru was on his playmat a couple of days ago and was starting to fuss.  I asked Lyla to give him his pacie.  She went over, put his pacie in and he calmed down.  She came over to me and said "Kru sad.  Kru need bobble" (bottle).  I said "no, I don't think so".  She said "I think so.  Bobble".  And walked away, no strutted away, very confident she knew what was best.  I love it!  I love that she thinks she knows what he needs and better yet, that she cares about him enough to tell me!

--------------------------------------

Heres another cute story.  The girls and I were coloring and they began peeling the papers off the crayons (a *fun* game my mom taught them).  Lyla had just peeled a pink crayon and I asked her what color she had.  She said "pink" (this is the one color they can both get right every time).   Then she picked up the paper she peeled off of a black crayon and asked me what color.  I wondered if I should say "grey" which is the actual color of the paper or "black" since it came off a black crayon.  I decided to go with "grey" since that accurately answers the question she asked so I said "Actually, thats grey".  She said "Actually, this Lellow" (yellow).  I loved how she used "acutally".  It was too cute.

-----------------------------------

Thats all for now...  these stories are cute to me and one day when I look back at my blog I know I'll enjoy reading them again.  But, hopefully they are entertaining to you, too.

We love every story! I'm glad you are such a great blogger. All of our grandchildren are great! I think a good bit of it comes good parenting. Thank you for the memories you are already giving them and us.
