Every night after dinner… 

ALLISON SAYS: May I be excused please?

CARTER SAYS:  May I be unscused please?

I am both proud of their politeness and tickled at Carter’s mispronunciation!

Two Ones

Saturday, July 25th, 2009

Something Jim just reminded me of from our trip to Sea world last November…

 While looking at the frogs, Carter declared,

“There are two ones in there!”




Dust Storm

Sunday, July 19th, 2009

During a dust storm (which included thunder and lightening, but only a couple drops of rain) tonight, Carter declared,

Astronauts not afraid of wind.

Astronauts may not be afraid of wind, but Allison sure is!

Carter Says

Sunday, July 19th, 2009

Early this morning, Carter got up and climbed in bed with me while Daddy was in the shower.  I reminded him that he needed to go potty, so he hopped down and took off toward the bathroom.  A moment later, he came running back to the bed, put his bunny next to me on the pillow and said,

“Oo keep eye on mine bunny!”

Then he turned around and ran back to the bathroom.

I took Carter to the John Deere tractor store as a motivation for getting potty trained!  When he goes SEVEN days without an accident, we’ll take him back and let him pick out a tractor toy (or maybe even a little bike that he saw) for his prize!

He loved all the tractors and they even let him climb on some of them!!

Career Choices – Update

Sunday, June 28th, 2009

Carter declared a new career aspiration today:

           CARTER:  When me blow up I be motor-cycle rider.  And race car rider.

Later he corrected “blow up” to “grow up” – but I think the mistake was adorable!!

Carter’s Tantrum

Tuesday, June 16th, 2009

My little Carter had an all-out two-year-old tantrum at the library yesterday…complete with running from me when I tried to scoop him up to take him home!  All the while he is screaming “I want to be gooooooooood!”

When Daddy got home last night, he asked him what happened at the library, and Carter replied…

     CARTER:  I got bad.

That tickled me and made me have to hide my smile!  As if the bads took a hold of him and he couldn’t get loose from them!

CARTER:  Knock-knock. Who-body dare?
