Overheard at Dinner

Mom, in sing-song voice: Dinner's ready. Who wants drumsticks?

Kids: WE DO!

Mom: Sorry, you're too cute (points at Sissy) and you're too big (points at Bubba)!

Kids: MOM!

Dad: She's just kidding. You can have drumsticks.


Bubba: Mom, why did you say that Sissy was too cute and I was too big to have drumsticks?

Mom: I thought it would be funny.


Bubba: It WASN'T.

Bubba is FIVE!

I know everyone says this, but I can't believe Bubba is already FIVE! Here's a recap.

Bubba, One Day Old.

Bubba at One. (just before his first sugar coma)

Bubba at Two.

Bubba at Three. 
(blue icing was imperative, as well as pumpkin chocolate-chip muffins)

Bubba at Four.
(again with the pumpkin chocolate-chip muffins, this time green frosting was imperative)

Before ...


He's officially FIVE!

Bubba wanted a Blue Angel Fighter Jet cake - which also, by the way, needed to be egg, dairy & gluten free. Turns out Bubba is allergic to pumpkin, too!

When I told him I was sorry it didn't look very Blue Angel Fighter Jet-like, he said, "Oh, don't worry, Mom.  I think it looks JUST FINE." (Hubby told me I should tell people it was supposed to look like it crash landed.)

You've turned out to be a mighty fine encourager, Little Buddy.

We're proud to have you in our family and watch you grow. Super Bubba! We love you.

Overheard in the Bedroom

Sissy received several pairs of jammies from a friend of mine. Her daughter had outgrown them.

[Sissy retelling the story while putting on jammies for her nap.]

Sissy: Dat gurl give her jammies to me?

Sissy: 'Cuz dat gurl is too big for her jammies?

Mama: Yes, that's right.

Sissy (with arms outstretched, jumping on bed): BUT DAT MAKES ME SO HAPPY!


Sissy, with feeling: Dat is a gwate gurl.

Overheard in the Hallway

Bubba roaming around with a tape measure.

Talking to himself as he measures things.

Bubba: Uh hmmm. Sissy is about 200 megabytes long.
