  1. I love (love, love!) that you are documenting these! My mom always told me to write everything down, and of course, I didn’t get around to it. I know I’ve forgotten so many of the sweet things the kiddos have said!

    One of my favorites: Each year, our church has a fire drill. During that day, when we picked my oldest (she was 2 at the time) up from Sunday School, I said “How was Sunday School? What did you learn?” Her response: “Jesus says, ‘Don’t be afraid. This is only a drill.” And she was totally serious.

  2. omigosh – hope that wasn’t the entire WEEKEND

    Always write these from time to time – so nice to have a record! Too adorable – from the other side of toddlerhood.

    I do remember always wanting to be a mama who never ignored what their kids were saying

    By the third one it was sometimes a challenge – and she talked more than the other two combined

  3. I missed this post, somehow. I was horrible at capturing those conversation…I am so glad you are doing it. And glad you survived the puking weekend…

    • I’m trying. Often, I jot down these conversations with spit-up on my shoulder while Owen comes precariously close to getting the magic-marker drawer open…but something’s gotta give, right?
