Grandma Moments

We believe Stacia has the spiritual gift of encouragement (along with a strong independent streak LOL). Some recently heard comments:

"Dad, I'm so proud of you."

"I'm proud of you, Jared."

"Arielle, you are such a tood (good) girl."

"Mommy, you are a TOOD Mommy."

She also has classified the boys as "big brothers" (Josiah, Jamin & Jared) and "little brothers" (Nolan & Zander). The "little brothers" don't take kindly to this and are trying to explain that they are ALL her big brothers.

Zander is CONVINCED that BreAnne is married. I have told him he's got it wrong. He has told me to wait and see at Christmas - that I'm going to be surprised when there is a man with Bre. ::snort:: I have a few days to continue to explain these things to him.

Zander also informed me this a.m. "Mom, your family is getting smaller! All your kids are leaving you. You'd better get some more, quick."

He's become fixated with Josiah leaving and living in an apartment. Every once in a while he'll say, "I think it's about time for me to get my own apartment."

I'm just cracking up at those two! Aren't the little ones funny?

Cynthia said...

LOL! How do you explain THAT one??? No need to answer >VBG>

DeEtta @ Courageous Joy said...

Cindy - I keep explaining that David is a nice young man who is a friend of Bre's but that they are NOT married.....I figure when David and the boys stay at Cy's apartment and the girls are here - he'll figure it out. LOL

De'Etta - I read your blog, I cry, laugh, and love your gift of sharing....sharing that you may or may not know you're doing. You touch my heart *tear* and I hope I can always be one of your "students".
God Bless You and Your Family!
I love you sweetie!
