Random Ramblings

I first have to say how much I love love love 9:00 church. We got to switch from 1:00 on the new year and it is SOO much better. The kids are better because they aren't ready for naps, you don't have to wait around all day to go to church and when you get home, kids are ready for naps and you still have a lot of your day left. Anyway, it is kind of sad because Mya is growing up. She started going to sunbeams and it is so WEIRD to drop her off and see her sitting in her little chair in her class. She is growing way too fast and it is kind of sad :(
She has said some funny things lately and since I don't keep a journal and if I were to write them down on a piece of paper somewhere I know it would end up getting lost at some point. So, I am going to blog about it so sorry if you don't want to read about my kids, just skip this post.

The other day she hit her leg on something and it was really hurting her and I thought her response was cute about it.

Mya: Mom, my leg is soo grouchy
Me: Why?
Mya: Because I got a owie and my owie is grouchy

Mya wouldn't mind me so I took away her blanket and if you know her and her blanket, that is a big deal! She is attached to that thing.

Me:Mya, the reason I took your blanket away is because you didn't mind when I said clean up
Mya:I just want my blankie back
Me:Then you have to clean up
Mya (in tears now):Mom, don't talk to me. (then she put her hand over her heart)
Me:What are you doing Mya
Mya:(crying so hard she can barely get any words out) My heart is hurting..When you say those words to me it makes my heart hurt.

Getting ready for dinner

Me:Mya, come and eat
Mya:I'm not too sure about this
Me: About what?
Mya: My food. I'm nervous
Me: Why are you nervous?
Mya: Because looking at this food I have to eat makes me nervous, I don't think I want to try it.
Me:Well, too bad, you have to eat it
Mya:Okay, if you say goes nothin
