So we are currently trapped in the frozen subzero Northern Michigan weather... And my little wonder boy Cael(4) never complains to much about the weather conditions, we joke he's part walrus because he runs outside no coat etc.. Over the weekend Daddyboy and Kolby were cutting up firewood and Cael was helping in his 4 year old way. After twenty or so minutes of helping.... He arrives at the back door banging to come in. At the top of his (frozen lungs) he proclaimed he is FROZEN SALAD? I asked him in clueless mom voice your what? FROZEN SALAD, again was screamed with an added plea of hot chocolate. Ah light bulb moment----- he's frozen solid in mom terms but for some reason he had previously misunderstood my comments "your frozen SOLID" lol. So always remember any anecdotes you use may and do turn in to a game of sleuth. These are the comments and the moments that remind me of the blessings that have been bestowed upon my life...
The list of child remarks that will forever be laughable and long with nine to draw from....
Another chart topper was at the dinner table our 19 year old Mitchell was then 3 1/2 years old and at the dinner table and he for some obvious little boy reason was not eating... And Daddyboy made a direct statement to EAT. Outta the mouth of our sweet little Mitchieboy came " Daddyboy I gonna paazoo you to the moon!" Now how can ya be mad at such a cute attempt to take over the family at 3 1/2... Well he was punished and he did in the end eat his dinner, but Mitchieboy will forever be reminded of his attempt to over throw the King Daddyboy over dinner. Now at nearly 20 years old Mitchieboy is taller in stature than the King but still remains that little three year old in our eyes.. It is a balmy -2 windchill of -15 so I believe my day will consist of staying inside and warm. Be thankful, be prayerful, and be the good in someone's day. Tam

C3 has been in a bitter struggle over going to preschool or staying home to watch over his littlest brother C4.. Shall we say it's been loud, angry, and violent at times getting him to go to his 3 hour preschool program... He's so very lucky that V his 26 year old sister and his 3 year old nephew are his transportation to said school. V has been more than patient with him encouraging him, also resorting to bribery yes I said the B word, uncrustable peanutbutter and jelly sandwiches. And it's all been in vain, our wonderful teachers aide Miss D even penned him a note of encouragement. But out of the blue K, C3's 10 year old brother came up with a humdinger of an idea, C3 has a huge love of sharks. Ok obsession. (grin) K gave him one over moussed spike pokie mowhak. Now that's all it took instant smiles C3 was now official a shark bait rah cah cah ( that's a mouth full) ready for preschool... Sigh victory goes to K, and who says having a bunch of problem solvers ( aka house full of kids) isn't a blessing. God doesn't give us more than we can handle, but there are days we have to be resourceful and use all the gifts he has given us to achieve victories great and small. (C4 going to preschool without tears) Today the score is K 1, mommagirl 0. Till next time be safe, be prayerful, and do a good deed today tam
