Out Of The Mouths Of Babes

We were outside getting the mail, and I told Burl that we needed to go back inside.  He replied, "Hold on, Mama.  I need to pick this flower.  This yellow flower."  He picked the dandelion, handed it to me, and said, "Here you go, Mama.  It's for you.  You is princess."

Not even an hour later, I was feeding the kids some lunch.  I ran to change into my running clothes and hurriedly got back to the kitchen.  I got the up-and-down look from Burl and Fern.   Burl turned back to his food and said, "My Mama cute!"

Totally surprised by all this, I texted John immediately.  I have no idea where Burl got talk like this, but John just assumed Burl was about to ask for money.  Ha.  Whatever the reason, I'll take it.  


  1. So funny. What a cutie and John's response cracked me up!!

  2. Adorable! I remember my son showing my husband the cover of some magazine with Heather Locklear on it, and he said, "Look Daddy, Mommy's picture!"

    Ahhhh, to look as lovely as our children think we are!
