Tate Funnies

Ok, so I have to share these two moments we had with Tate. They definitely went into our laugh jar today, but I wanted to give you a little laugh too.

He was looking over Griffin's scrapbook that I had been working on, and he saw a very pregnant picture of me. So, he asked, "where's Tate?" so I pointed to my belly in the picture and said, there you are. He said," Did you eat me?"

Chad was driving home from lunch and I was reading an article to the boys about Winter Olympic Hopefuls. When I got to talking about a speed skater, Apollo Ohnu, Tate had his own thoughts. Right as I finished saying "Ohnu," he piped up and said, "Dos, Tres, Cuatro, Cinco" Chad and I busted out laughing! And then Griffin said, "I can play uno." Fun times with the fellas!

Hope I made you smile today!

A connection and a conversation

Owen: Mom, it's really easy to understand.
Mom: what are you talking about?
Owen: well, Yoda is like God, you and Dad are like Anakin, and we are Padawans. You know, God is our master and Yoda is the Jedi Master, and Anakin is training the padawans about being a Jedi like you teach us about God.
Mom: you are right.
Chad: well then who is DarthVader?
Owen: Dad, Satan of course.

Needless to say, I was giggling with his connection(b/c I am not into sci-fi) and blown away at the same time. as with all analogies, they break down at some point, but I was totally impressed with his discovery.

So, moms, had I rushed us out the door this morning, I would have missed this conversation. Let's challenge each other to hear our children more, because when we are honest, they teach us so much more:-0
