If I were a grown up......

I would buy these shoes and wear them and be taller than daddy.

Wacky Wardrobe Day

The school decided to have a Wacky Wardrobe Day for the kids to wear whatever they wanted. This was Jackson's choice. Got quite a laugh, apparently.

Jackson's First Book

Jackson wrote a book just before his sixth birthday. I think he has a few things to work on for his next draft, like spelling and a plot, but not bad for a six year old.

Stuff Our Kids Say

Kiran having a nightmare: It's too big, it's too big! The cat. The man.
Mommy: What's too big?"
Kiran: The blanket's too big. The man with the cat put the blanket on my head and he didn't say sorry.
Kiran, after consoling by Mommy: Sometime can we make him come back to our house and say sorry?

Kiran on discovering a three-way light switch: That's confusing; you have to push it down to turn the light on.

Kiran, sharing a room with the already sleeping Jackson after late night New Year's Eve at Uncle Roy's house: Mommy, nobody said 'Who's there?'
Mommy: What?
Kiran: Nobody said 'Who's there?' I said 'Knock, knock' so many times and nobody said 'Who's there?

Jackson, arguing with Kiran: Just let me win! This is the nice thing; letting me win.

Jackson: Clear and blue are the wash away sin Baptist colors.
Me: Huh?
Jackson: For water.
Note: I think he means baptism, not Baptist.

Kiran: (listening to Kid's Praise music in the car) Mommy, I want to follow Jesus.
Clarice: Really. That means you want to be obedient to what He teaches. Are you ready to do that?
Kiran: Yeah. Can you drive me to Jesus so I can follow Him?

Happy New Year!

After a 6 month hiatus, we're back. Balancing Facebook posts and blogging has been a challenge (along with the rest of real life). But we want to try to be more regular in our posting (OK, Aunt Heather?). So here's to 2012!!

Things Our Kids Say

We've been posting to Facebook more frequently than Blogspot lately. But Ian and I have decided to post here first for our non-Facebook friends and family.

Conversation with the girl upon picking her up from her first day back at school in the New Year.
Me: So, who did you play with today?
Kiran: Jophes and Mei Mei.
Me: Oh. I didn't know Joseph was back from vacation.
Kiran: He is. But Mei Mei isn't.
Me: I thought you said you played with Mei Mei today.
Kiran: (exasperated) I was just pwetending that Jophes was Mei Mei.
Me: Oh. OK. And did Joseph like it when you pretended he was Mei Mei?
Kiran: (glibly) No. He didn't

Conversation with the boy upon observing dogs being walked in the Botanical Gardens at UCLA
Me: I'd want to take a walk in the garden if I were a dog
Jackson: I'd want to take a walk in the garden if I were a cat....but I wouldn't want to be a cat because you'd chase me.
Me: What?
Jackson: You're a dog, so you'd chase me if I were a cat.

Kiki's Fan Mail

Kiran received this card in the mail from a friend at daycare.

She is loved!
