The Funny Things Kids Do!
Last week's theme was funny stories about the funny things our kids do. I had a page limit to work with, and I couldn't find a few of the posts (if you put your name on our list, did you actually do a post?).
Below is the list of posts that made it in the book. Don't shoot me if yours didn't make it... there will be plenty of opportunity in the future. Check out "Funny Things Our Kids Do" here.
Here is the list of stories in the book:
Many thanks to Candy for letting us put Kya Blu on the cover. They came over to visit last weekend and we experienced a few "funnies" right on the spot. Hope you enjoy the book.
Even more I hope you continue to participate in Laughter Lives Tuesday. Why? Because it's a stinkin' lot of fun, and I could use the laugh every week. How 'bout you? You can get the book here. .
Laughter Lives Tuesday:
The Funny, Cute & Endearing Ways We Say 'I Love You'
This weeks theme is going to be both funny and sweet. I look forward to enjoying the posts you write, and also learning from them. We can always use more creative ways to say "I love you."
I Lub You Daddy
Abby, sweet little thing, will walk up to us out of the blue, hug your leg and say with great conviction, "I... lub... you... Daddy". When she says that, she is hugging your leg, laying her head on you, and it comes out like a great big sigh, as if she is very tired and now finally everything is okay. It is so sweet.
'Cause I'm a Stinky Little Kid
We have this thing with the two babies (Abby and Landis) where we hug them and say "I love you so much. I love you too much. Do you know why I love you too much?"
To this, they reply: "Because I'm a stinky little kid."
Don't ask me how or why this came about, I don't remember but it's what we do. Other people hear it and either think its funny, or sweet (or weird!).
My wife and I taught our kids sign language when they were a few months old to help them learn to communicate. They could say "please", "more" and other simple words even before they could speak. It was really cute, and helpful.
Michelle and I often respond "I love you more..." when the other says "I love you". Because we were teaching the kids sign language for "more", the "more" sign became our secret way to say "I love you" and it meant, "I love you more". We could say "I love you more" across the room, or driving away using our little sign.
That's right, I'm a sap. Don't tell any of my ex-Drill Sargeant buddies.
