Inside the Mind of a Child

My 2 little angels have a bad habit of creating horrible messes with their food (remember the green beans?). There is currently a food ban for their room. Yesterday they both decided to make a mess with their lunch...and I decided to give them both a spanking and sent them to their beds while I cleaned up. Here is the conversation that came from that room:

Wild Child: (in a cute voice filled with tears) Cutie, mom is SO mad.
Cutie: Yeah.
Wild Child: (in the voice of a desperate pioneer woman who's husband has just been killed by indians and she is having to continue on her own) Now Daddy is the only best friend I have.


Yesterday I babysat for my SIL after school. This is my nephew. If you ask my niece or nephew what 2 items remind them of their Aunt Scrappy they will say a camera and an ink pen.
After doing his homework my nephew said, "Hey Aunt Scrappy...have you got any pictures of me with my new bike?" He knew I had not. I said, " I don't think I do." So we went outside and he posed and posed for me. This was a nice compliment and it made me smile.

Nephew has lost his 2 front teeth. They have been out for a long time. Good thing they are coming in slow because I hadn't had a chance to photograph him. These are some of my fave pics to take...missing front teeth!

Too cute!!! This post was funny! Aunt Scrappy and her camera and pen :0) I too love the toothless photos--and I love his smile.

Kids are so cute. I love Wild Child saying, "Now Daddy is the only best friend I have." So sweet.

I also love how your nephew asked if you had a photo of him with his new bike. That is priceless. I guess he could not just ask you to take the photo. So sweet. Good pictures of him with the new bike!! M

That picture is priceless. I love his missing teeth and he wanted a picture of him and his bike. So cute.

Kids say the cutest things. And sometimes the weirdest things. But daddy thing. So cute.
