Me: I’m so tired!
Ty: Mommy, you can’t take a nap because Daddy isn’t home.
Me: True, but if you all took a nap then I could!
Chase: No! If we all take naps then people will think our house is for sale!
Jackson: Dear God, please make Lily’s shoes size 4,000 so that they’ll fit her. Amen.
Chase: Dear God, please zap us to Maine and Vermont right now! Amen.
Ty: Daddy said that he hoped we would catch a fish yesterday, so that we could eat it for lunch.
Me: Was Daddy going to clean and cook it?
Ty: No, he said you would.
Me: But I don’t know how!
Ty: You could look it up on YouTube.
Jackson (completely out of the blue): Mommy, did you know I’ll miss you when you’re up in Heaven?
Me: That’s nice of you to say!
Jackson: Will you miss me? Cause I’ll really miss you.
Ty, to Nick: Do you know why Mommy gets to sleep longer than the rest of us?
Nick: No, why?
Ty: Because she does more work then the rest of us!
(I swear, I didn’t put him up to that – ha!)
A positive answer to Chase’s prayer would result in near-rapture. He (or all of you) wouldn’t be translated to heaven but it would be the next best thing. 🙂
LOL at it being the next best thing!
Such memorable comments from the little ones!
I wanted to comment on your blog tonight to mention that a staff member from our church is SO EXCITED to be coming to Kansas City tomorrow to attend a conference at your church!! I wish I could be coming with her!
How fun, Nellie! Nick said it was a great first day 🙂
