The toddler got woken up by thunder and was sure it was, “scary car outside.”

Me:. . . So if something bad happened to you and you needed to tell an adult, name me five adults you trust, not counting Mom and Dad.
Danny: Mrs. Peterson, Mrs. Anderson, Miss Chei, Grandma and. . . the lady who brings a dog to church. I can’t remember her name, but she brings a dog?

Daughter: Mom, did you know that when a baby shark is born, his mom just swims away? That’s why they’re so mean. They don’t have a mom to teach them how to love.

I think it’s adorable that as a generation of moms who grew up watching Mr. Rogers, we’ve all kind of adopted his wardrobe choices. #CardiganAndSneakers

My real life. It’s okay to laugh:

(while in the car I gave a really thorough yet age-appropriate speech about how we can have a relationship with God because of what Jesus did for us (based on some questions Joel was asking), took a deep breath)
Me:. . . So, does that make sense to you?
Joel (5): Yeah.
Me: Do you think you want to pray to God about all that? I can help you if you want.
Joel: I already did it.
Me: What? You did? When?
Joel: While you were still talking.

I was going to make dinner, but then I had a muffin and now I’m not hungry so I don’t want to cook, but everybody’s crying so I better come up with something fast.

My mom is personally writing senators to let them know why LB411 is important to her. Listen, you can mess with a lot of people, but you can’t tick off the grandmas and think you’re not going to hear about it.

The Littles are taking turns ringing our doorbell and then enthusiastically welcoming each other home. They don’t make words to describe this level of cuteness.
