Kids and the things they say

After a day of laundry, cleaning, and packing boxes, I was ready for a nice, hot, shower. Before getting into the shower, I told Brooke and Andrew to clean up the very messy playroom. While in the bathroom, I overheard the following conversation:

Brooke: "I wish I was mom."
Andrew: "No, mom has to do the dishes and clean the bathroom."
Brooke: "I wish I was dad."
Andrew: "No, dad is on the computer and has to talk on the phone alot. Besides, he gets real sweaty."
Brooke: "Well, I want to be a boy, then."

Needless, to say Brooke just didn't want to be Brooke right then if that involved picking up her toys. She hates picking up her toys!

Andrew was playing on the PS2 today, and created a basketball player in his NCAA game. He made a guy that was superior in dribbling, rebounding, speed, and defense. Andrew made him 7' 5". The funniest part was when I saw the name on the back of the jersey---"Stirgil." Now, if you know the Sturgills, none of us are close to 7'5". I asked Andrew what his first name was, and he said that he named the guy: "Briant Stirgil." Here is to one of his favorite cousins!!!!

The picture below is of Brooke's most recent happening. While at the boys open house at school on Thursday evening, Brooke lost her first tooth!

Out of the mouths of babes! I love the song (wish I could remember all the words) Make me like a child again - make me simple and trusting- Make me like a child again - innocent and adoring. OR the song - I wish I were a kid again - doing what I did again-into a land where you leave cares behind - please take me back there are things I must find!!! So Brooke, even Gramma wishes "she were a little girl" - at least for awhile! Love to you all. Gramma

Congrats to Brooke - I hope the tooth fairy was good to her! When I was a little girl (and even now) I hated picking stuff up, so I empathize with Brooke!
