Conversations Overheard

As I was making dinner Tuesday night, Emily was doing her regular routine. She was crawling in and out from under my feet from cabinet to cabinet playing in the pots and pans, and plastic bowl lids. Tyler saw her doing this and decided to join in on the fun. He went to Shelby's room and began to bring things from her play kitchen set, fake food, utensils, etc. Once Shelby saw him doing this she quickly joined in on the play. They had a full on kitchen right in the middle of the kitchen floor (as I tried to make a real dinner). Then the conversation ensued:

Shelby: Tyler I am going to the store. We have to make a list first.

Tyler: *bantering about what to put on the list* Eggs, milk, bread...we need everything. We can go when I finish cooking.

(I don't know what he was cooking if he needed everything...)

Shelby: Okay, I am going to get the babies ready. *She begins putting babies in "car seats".

Later on, I suppose they have already made it to the store when I hear Tyler firmly declare: "No, Shelby we cannot buy that. It is NOT on sale!"

This is the influence I've had on my children! *LOL*

Yep, they are getting all that from you. How adorable it is too. I would have been laughing out loud if this had played out here. Just saying.

Have a terrific day honey. Big hug and lotsa lovies. :)
