Conversations with my Kids



So I decided it might be kind of fun to post some of the various conversations I have had in the past with my kids. I mean the funny ones that you have when they are little. I think I shall do this once every other week. You see, i have a notebook that I keep and I write down the conversations that I have had with them and the funny words that they have made up. So here's the first chapter.
You all know Brennan right? Remember what a cute little three year old he was? Well if you don't recall, he was and is still very adorable. But when he was about three he cracked me up on a daily basis. He had this thing where he called Lee and I by our first names, and when he was going to tell you a "fish tale" he would make his voice really low and cool like. So the conversation went as follows. Be sure to hear in your head a real cool low voice when Brennan speaks:
Scene: Driving up 89 to Grandma Jeans.
Brennan: Hey Mindi?
Mindi: Yes Brenn?
Brennan: Do you see those mountains up there?
Mindi: I sure do. What about them?
Brennan: Well, you see Mindi I made them.
Mindi: You made them? How do you mean?
Brennan: Well, do you see how there is some red up there and green and there is even some brown?
Mindi: Yes.
Brennan: Well I painted em.
Mindi: You painted them? How did you do that?
Brennan: I drove around in my truck and painted them.
Mindi: Did you do that all by your self?
Brennan: Well, no. Christian works for me.
Mindi: Wow! So how much do you make at this job?
Brennan: Like 540.
Mindi:Hmm...
End of conversation for one week. Then it picks back up while driving back up to Grandma Jeans.
Mindi: So Brennan, do you still work in the mountains?
Brennan: Nope!
Mindi: You don't, well how come?
Brennan: The pay sucked!

You're so smart to write these conversations down and save 'em. You can embarrass them later on in front of their friends...

i love reading all of the happiness in the stories they make my day. the smiling faces and all. i remember once at mom's when tysen had a pixie stick but not the paper kind but the tough plastic one and was struggling to open it and i offered to help him open it and i myself struggled with it when he tilted his little head to the side and said, "is that pretty tough aunt chelle." i was laughing to hard i almost peed in my pants. i think he might have been just over two years old. they are so cute when they are little.

Well, at least now I know who chelle belle is.

Anyhoo, I used to wrote those things down as well. It's a good thing to WRITE them down and keep them somewhere. I wrote them in a Word file and kept them on my computer for a while...then the hard drive crashed.

Cute story. Tell more.

What a good idea. I will definitely do this when Ainsley can talk. I can't wait for that age! How cute!
