From the mouths of babes and other things

John's brother Richard went home today with Trish and his kids. We had a really fun time yesterday at the Riot Zone and a good time today visiting and playing volleyball. I made it through the weekend with both my MIL and my SIL Melissa. Miracles do still exist! It is always a experience getting 7 children together. They all have great imaginations and the things they say sometimes just blow me away! Kyle 13 Cameron 11 Kayleen 9 Clarice 5 Bryden 4 ~~~~~~~~~~ Kayleen: You're cute, but I'm cuter Clarice: yeah, because you have bigger boobs! ~~~~~~~~~~ Clarice: oh no, are you okay Bryden? Bryden: I think so, I just hurt my toushie, so I put some leaves on it! ~~~~~~~~~~ Kyle: I like this girl from my school Cameron: you just like her cause she has big boobs Kayleen: like mine? ~~~~~~~~~~ John: you had to take sex ed this year didn't you? Kyle: yea, but all I remember is mat... uh... how do you say it?, maturation. Cameron: what's maturation? Kyle: I don't think I said that right! John how do you say it? Kayleen: what's so funny Jenn? (I was laughing so hard at this point I could barely breathe.) John had to tell the kids that we would have to talk about masturbation some other time! ~~~~~~~~~~ Kyle: Kathryn has the biggest cheeks! I hope my kids have cheeks like hers. Kayleen: that's gross Kyle Kyle: not her butt cheeks, her cheek cheeks! ~~~~~~~~~~ Bryden: if you want to you can come to my house Clarice: I don't want to Bryden: but if you want to you can Clarice: I don't want to, thanks Bryden: but you can Clarice: no thanks, I'm not deaf you know Bryden: okay, I'm sorry............... so do you want to come? Clarice: boys these days *rolling her eyes* ~~~~~~~~~~ John (picking Kathryn up): baby you're so heavy! You need to join Jenny Craig Clarice (laughing hysterically): Jenny Craig? That's a good one!! (pretty sure she doesn't know who Jenny Craig is, but the timing was perfect!!) ~~~~~~~~~~ It was a really nice break for all of us. We had a lot of fun with the kids. Friday night Kayleen, Kyle and Cameron came to spend the night at our house and we went to a drive in movie. They'd never been to one before so it was fun to take them. On Saturday night Kayleen and Kyle wanted to spend the night again so they came back to town with me. Neither one of them wanted to sleep on the floor so they ended up in bed with me! John came home and had to sleep on the floor because their was no room left on the bed! However, I wish I had ended up on the floor. Sleeping with two wiggly children reminded me why we've always made it a point to put Katy to sleep in her own bed. I could barely sleep, but I was stuck in the middle so there was no where to go! ~~~~~~~~~~ John's car wouldn't start Friday night after he got to Melissa's. We pulled the battery out and tested it. Dead as a door nail. I sent him down with a new battery and cables to fix it, Kathryn and I are going to go take a nap. I'm exhausted, but getting excited for the family reunion in 3 weeks!
