***When we took Molly to the vet for her checkup a couple months ago, we found out she has heart worms :( (She's fine now.) MR asked why Molly was taking medicine.
Me: "Molly's heart is sick so she has to take these pills to make her feel better."
MR: "What wrong with Molly's heart? Is God not in it anymore?"
"I want 10 sisters, and we can name them Nissan, Root Beer, Fannie, Dora...um, one Mary, another...Reeves, and Mari Russell!"
***We were getting dressed to go to University Bible Study and this convo took place....
Wes to MR: "Go put on your jeans."
MR: "They don't match my shirt."
Wes: "Jeans match everything. Now go."
MR: "Let me ask Mom. She runs this operation."
At this point she runs in to see me with a tie-dye t-shirt, rainbow striped leggings and a colorful hoodie. She was so proud of all the matching colors, so I let her wear it.
MR back to Wes: "See, Dad, I just threw this on, and it looks great! Better than your jeans."
***One morning, the kids were lying in bed with Wes while I was getting ready. The topic turned to their beloved morning apple juice, which we had neglected to replenish the fridge with the day before...
MR: "Murphy, we don't have any juice."
MR: "Ok, I'm not arguing with a two-year old."
MR: "These pretzels are making me thirsty!"
(Wes and I died laughing at this random Seinfeld reference that apparently we have said around her!)
***Me to Murphy one morning as I was putting him in his car seat: "Murphy, are you my baby?"
MR: "We'll always be your babies, even when we grow up."
Wes: "MR, you just made your momma's day!" (And she did!)
MR: "Don't call him that! That's for old ladies." (Who knows?)
***We had Veggie Night for supper a couple weeks ago, and Mary Reeves was so excited.
"I'm gonna need a grown up plate because of all this good food! I'm going to eat my brussel sprouts first!" (Mom Points! ha!)
"Who made God?"
"What do you mean God doesn't have any parents?"
"Did Adam and Eve go to heaven? Because they listened to that bad snake."
***MR last night in the car: "I think we are going to get Max in like 20-25 more days."
Wes: "Why don't you pray about that?"
Me: "Yes, God hears our prayers."
MR: "Well...he hears us talking it about it right now."
While we pray both of them are starting to understand more and more about Jesus' love for us, we can't help but chuckle under our breath at Murphy's nightly prayers that go something like this...
"Thank you God for.....going to the baseball game.....eating chips at the baseball game....no thank you that we didn't go to the basketball game.....and for my sunglasses. A-MEN!"
Every night, Murphy also wants to sing 3-4 songs (ABCs, Jesus Loves Me, and the Fight Song). Sometimes he wants to sing a duet and sometimes a solo. When I'm putting him to bed, I can never resist "Lay down wit me, Momma." So we sing and chat until he rolls over and says "Night Night!" Then he give me the biggest hugs ever. I LOVE his squeezes so much...Murf is seriously THE best hugger!
Goodness, they keep us on our toes and keep us laughing...most of the time! :)
