My friend called and told me that they had the class lists up.....and that I should check out what teacher Emery has for Kindergarten. I was going to go during the boys nap-time but Ethan was SO excited to see Emery's school that I sneaked the drive over before nap-time. And I'm excited to say that Emery's teacher will be a woman from our neighborhood! YEAH! (I was secretly wanting her to be Em's teacher....so I'm very excited too!) So here's to the beginnings of getting ready for Kindergarten.....yipee!
Emery: Mom, when I die and I'm up in heaven......(pause).....Can you walk?
Emery: Well, When I die and I'm up in heaven I want to walk and give Jesus a big hug.
05/24: Ethan: "I don't like cheese in my Orange Juice" (His way of saying he doesn't like the pulp in his OJ)
12/29: Mom: "Sorry, buddy I can't move fast because Mommy's belly is big."
Ethan: "It kind of goes all the way down to your privates."
Dad: "I guess that is his way of saying that you've dropped."
10/20: Ethan: "Let me tell you a story. When we go downstairs, and eat breakfast then I'll be a happy boy."
10/13: Ethan being a little boy....has lately been obsessed with poop. =) He has been playing with his teddy-bear and said it was his son and he needed to go poop. So, he put him on the potty and his "son" went poop. Ethan imitated it by "Poop...poop, poop."
8/20: Ethan making up a song and singing:
"Once I was in the store, and I couldn't find my family, and so now I'm in yours." Sad but funny.
8/7: Emery: "Daddy's don't get tired because Daddy's don't have babies."
6/1: Me: "Emmy, do you want a grilled cheese sandwich?" Emery: "Yes, Mom." Me: "Ethan, do you want a grilled cheese sandwich?" Ethan: "No, I want a boy-cheese sandwich." I guess I said it more like a "girl-cheese sandwich" instead of a grilled cheese sandwich.
5/8: Ethan went to Old Navy with me. I said, "Ethan, I'm so glad you are going to come with me." He said, "I like you, Mom." So I said, "Thank you, my son." Then Ethan said, "You're my favorite Mom."
2/24: Ethan just finished brushing my hair. I told him thank you and he looked at me and smiled and said, "You look like a princess."
2/18: Ethan picked his nose and had a boogie. I told him "Don't wipe it on the blanket." And he answered me, with a tilted head, "Don't eat it?"
1/26: Emery was looking in my mouth and noticed my fillings. It was a good time to teach about dental hygiene. A moment later, she was jumping on me. I told her to stop and then she said, "Sorry, I don't want to hurt your fillings." She laughed. She thought she was so funny.
1/14: Emery and Ethan were exercising and Ethan said: "Mom, feel my heart!" And after I checked it...Ethan said: "My heart is getting bigger, Mom!"
12/30: Jac: "Hey, buddy, be careful...don't pinch." Ethan: "Hey, dad, you don't have skin."
12/26: Ethan: "I have to go potty, weally bad."
12/17: Emery: "I'm not afraid of anything because all the dinosaurs are dead. They just have dinosaur bones, so yeah...I'm not afraid of anything, not even the dark."
