Sometimes I tell the kids "do (whatever) or your name will be Mud!"--this is something my dad used to say to us all the time and our kids think it is so funny when I use it on them. Anyway, I told Josiah to do something last night and said, "You don't want your name to be Mud, do you?" To which he replied, "Yes! Because I wike mud, 'cause I'm a pig!" :)
Today Julia was playing with a little toy, making it jump around here, there and everywhere. I heard her say, "And he was running, and hipping, and skopping, and jumping!!" Totally cracked me up, although she never even realized that she'd mixed up her words. :)
I just love them all so much . . . and they're growing up way too fast. Sigh . . .
