Out of the Mouth's of my Babes

The kids are constantly saying and doing things that have Brian and I rolling. Most of it is Wyatt, with his constantly expanding vocabulary and inquisitive nature, but Reese also manages to pull a few funnies out every now and then too.
  • Last week at Busch Gardens we stopped in a store that carries cuckoo clocks, but also has a small Christmas section. We stopped at a nativity and pointed to Baby Jesus and asked Wyatt if he remembered the baby's name. His reply was correct: "Baby Jesus." But before he could answer Reese responded in a deep voice, "Yooooooooooooda."
  • I asked Wyatt what he wants to name his baby brother and got three responses: Derek Jeter, A Rod or Wonder Pets.
  • I will probably never need to have a conversation with my kids about where babies come from. If you ask Wyatt, he just says "We came from your scar, Mom."
  • If you ask what babies eat he says "Milk from Mommy's bottles."
  • Wyatt can put on a pretty rockin performance of "Don't Stop Believin." He sings it in the car all the time (after asking, "Hey Mom, do you have your phone?), but only today did Brian and I realize that he apparently thinks the song is about Derek Jeter. For whatever reason instead of "Strangers" he thinks the word is "Jeter." But he just sings along and can sing the song by heart except the people are standing on the "Gooeybard" instead of the "Boulevard." With or without the music. This kid is nuts, but he cracks us up.

And just now my husband was looking through the new Restoration Hardware catalogue and says "Who buys this stuff for their patio? It looks like it belongs at a castle. This might be something I'd buy if I were putting in a patio off Hogwarts." We've got nothing but humor in this house!
