Mommy Memories...

I know...I'm a day late and a dollar short, but I still want to post a few memories in honor of Mother's Day. These cute kids have taught me SOOOOOOO much...
Here are a few of those memorable moments:
My mom and I were shopping with the 3 kids at the Bon Marche. (Um -- what was I thinking??) Dillon, becoming bored in approximately 2 and 1/2 minutes, decides to entertain himself by crawling under all the round racks, and trying to get up in the middle of them. I extricate him from one of the racks and give him a  stern, and face to face impartation of wisdom. His response? "Mom -- did you brush your teeth this morning? You sure have bad breath!!"
Apparently, this was NOT a teachable moment.



We're sitting in the back of church with our two toddlers and infant. Sweet Caitlin, in her pink Sunday dress, motions frantically for me to come close...She has something urgent to tell me. I lean in for her to whisper in my ear, whereupon she sneezes a spray that covers the side of my head...Immediately, all the other occupants of the pews are silently shaking...After I clean up, I ask, "What did you need to tell me?" "I wanted to tell you that I had to sneeze."
Got it...





Little Jess and I are in the local variety store. (Remember Sprouse Reitz, locals?) I've made my selections and am standing in the check-out line. Jess has wandered over to gaze over the candy aisle, just north of the checkstands. He calls, "Mom! Come here! Come look at this!"
"No, Jess, " I reply, tired of seeing this and that, not wanting to lose my place in line,
 "You just show me from there."
He excitedly picks up a box of candy, and speaks very loudly so I will hear, " Look, Mom! Terds!!"
Actually, Jess, they are Nerds -- and next time I WILL come and look...

Oh so many funny things...



Oh so many wonderful days past...
and present...

The biggest blessings of our lives, in so many ways.
I love being your mom, you three!

Isn't being a Mom just the best? Love the memories, out of the mouths of babes...

Needing an outlet for various thoughts rattling in my head, I've created two blogs -- One about my real life (leslieisverbose.blogspot.com) and one where I can vent. (leslievents.blogspot.com)
