Kids say the darndest things

Miriam purposely dumped Jireh’s lunch onto her seat. “Miriam, did you dump out her macaroni on purpose?”
“No, not on purpose. I dumped it on her chair.”

After putting the macs back in her bowl, attempted to make Jireh eat it anyway. She insisted, “Mommy, please will you make it hot? Make it HOT!”
Didn’t feel like putting it in the microwave for 3 seconds so I said, “No Jireh, it might not be hot but it’s edible, just eat it.”
“No, it’s NOT edible! It’s macaroni!”

Meanwhile, I was feeding Soren and noticed he had crumpled up some leaves onto his head. Since my hands were full of spoon and bowl, I just leaned over and blew the leaves off his head. He responded by blowing back at me — with a mouth full of food.

The other day at breakfast, Jireh was poking Miriam with her finger, just to irritate her, I suppose. Well, it was working just fine, so we told Jireh to stop. She held out her pointer finger toward Miriam one last time, caught Dave’s eye, and then turned her finger upright saying, “Papi, is Soren one?”

The reason this quick save is funnier than it otherwise would have been, is because Dave at the same age had been told not to point. He was about to do it again, but instead took his other pointer finger and criss-crossed them together saying, “Look, scissors!”  So when Jireh did this, Dave & I looked at each other laughing and said “Scissors!”

  1. thanks for the lesson 🙂  i’m so bad at english.  my other struggle is the “I” or “me” scenario, leaving out my to-be verbs and many, many other’s.  on another note, i can totally picture soren blowing back at you…so something naomi would do…it really made me laugh out loud, hahaha!  and the pointing finger thing is really scary…and cute!

  2. LOL! Your kids are hilarious. I love Jireh’s clever little save. Like father, like daughter, right?

    That pointing thing is HYSTERICAL!! Guess Jireh’s looks aren’t the only thing she got from daddy!

  4. Okay, Jireh really is extremely bright, as evidenced by her quick save. That is beyond her age! ~KTL

    Jireh has proved once again that she has not only stunning looks but a quick mind. Love it!

    Those are very funny stories. Jessica B was the administrative assistant at the shoe co. Drew and she had some sort of “thing” before he was fired. She was only in a few scenes. Of course Jirah is beyond her age…look at her genes.

    Here is the crockpot granola recipe and the recipe to make it into granola bars.  I am eating one of the granola bars with almonds and chocolate chips and it is really good.  The recipe said to cook it on low for 5 hours.  Mine started to burn at 3 hours so I took it out and it was done, so my crockpot must cook at a higher heat than hers.  I also put a 1/2 to 1 cup of slivered almonds in at about 1 1/2 hours because I just thought about it then and the almonds make it sooo good.  Hope you enjoy it! 
    Crockpot Granola
    5 cups of oats – not quick cooking 1/2 cup of oil 1/2 cup of honey 1 tsp. vanilla 1 tsp. cinnamon (this wasn’t in the original recipe but I use it). 1 cup of coconut Cook on low for 5 hours or until brown, stirring occasionally. **Important: Make sure you keep the cover cracked on the crockpot. Add raisins, dried fruit, nuts, whatever you desire ***If you don’t like coconut leave it out and add ¾ cup more oats and ¼ cup more honey. If you just want it clumpier, go ahead and add ¾ cup more honey. OH, I was told by some adventurous ladies that Maple Syrup is a yummy option in place of the honey, I haven’t tried that.
    Recipe for granola bars using the crockpot granola “Preheat oven to 350. Combine 2 beaten eggs with 2 cups of granola. We always have dried fruit & nuts in ours that we include in the 2 cup count. Occasionally, we’ll sneak in some kind of chip. 8*) Place in lightly greased (I use non stick spray) 8×8 pan. Bake for 15 minutes. Cut into bars. Cool Here’s some other things that we do with it: Cold cereal Hot cereal Base for trail mix On peanut butter coated bananas Granola cookies Bread machine breads BTW: I find if I leave mine alone & don’t stir it too much that it is more clumpy.”

    LOL! :)ryc: When I turned the page on my calendar, I noticed the 11th was marked to change clocks! I couldn’t believe it! Then I remembered that they were trying to pass an energy bill last year that would extend daylight savings time, I think. I don’t know!

  9. this was so funny. the soren one really made me laugh!!

    The Jireh one is so cute and bad! Every one of those stories made me laugh a little more.

  11. i brought this post up over dinner tonight after i said, “i don’t know how many square feet marla’s new studio will be,” because kaiya in the same instant throws her foot onto the table and says, “i don’t have square feet!”  i think that’s the first time my kids have made any kind of comment like that…i loved it!  oh, and i was asking about the grammar 🙂  well, off to bed…finally!  2am!

    Thanks for the laugh!! 

  13. Just wanted to let you know that I’m going to definitely be in my pj’s all day and pretty much this whole week. The after pains of birth are really painful compared to the first. Oh, and you can harass Jeremiah as much as you want. lol.

  14. When I was at Margaret’s with you and your kids on Thursday, Miriam said something that would make her dad proud, too. She kept asking me my name, and I wouldn’t tell her because I knew that she knew it. So, finally she asked, “Is it Sila?”Those are some really cute stories. Thanks for sharing.
