"Mom, I can't do any skills."
(me) "What do you mean 'skills'?"
"You know, skills! Like this!" (He proceeds to do some sort of spin move on his knees on the carpet.) "Maybe when I'm a big kid, I can do skills."
"How do you think big kids learn how to do those skills?"
"Mom, they don't learn skills, they just do them!"
- Earlier today, I was downstairs on the computer and I could hear Jonas upstairs getting fussy. It was lunch time-so pretty much all of the kids were hungry. I was just about to head back upstairs (I promise) when Seth comes down and says:
"Mom, I need your help up here, I can't take care of these two babies by myself!"
"Okay Seth I'm coming right now."
"We need two people to take care of two babies, I'll take one and you take the other."
"Which one will you take care of, Seth?"
"I'll take care of Maryn and you take care of Jonas."
"What will you do to take care of Maryn?"
"I'll just sit and watch a show with her or something." (It's nice to know someone's got my back in this taking care of baby business!
- Also earlier today, the kids were watching "Little Einsteins" on TV. Seth turned to me and said: "Mom, here our missions are for Jesus, right?" He has probably seen this show hundreds of times, but today it clicked in his brain that he knows what "we've got a mission" means. At least, he thinks he knows what it means.
