Minion Monday

Minions Christmas 2015

So, my kids are pretty freakin’ fantastic. I know this, but sometimes they are all so awesome at the same time that I get overwhelmed by it, and have to write it down. These are just a few moments of their adorableness in the last 12 hours.

Last night, 8 pm

The minions (jumping out of a closet): “Surprise!”

Me (angry face): “That is a TERRIBLE surprise! I told you to stop hiding and get in bed!!”

Liam: “That is a terrible surprise! I told you to stop hiding and get in bed! I’M SO PREGNANT!”

The Ogre: *dies laughing*

This morning, 4:30 am

Lincoln (who woke up at 3:00 with dreadful croup): *cough cough, wheeze wheeze, seal bark, whimper* “I so sorry, Mama.”

Me: “What are you sorry for, buddy?”

Lincoln: “I sorry for coughing on you.”

Me: *melts, smothers him with kisses*

This morning, 6 am

Sienna: “Mom, why are you sitting up in the chair with Lincoln?”

Me: “He’s got croup and was up coughing most of the night. He can’t breathe when he lays down, so we spent a lot of the night in the chair.”

Sienna: “Wow, so you didn’t get much sleep? And you’re still happy and not yelling?”

Me: “I know, right? It’s like a Christmas miracle.”

Sienna: “That’s really impressive, Mom. You’re getting better.”

This morning, 7:40 am

Charlotte: “Look, Mom, a rainbow!”

Me: “Oh yeah, there is a rainbow over your school! How pretty.”

Charlotte: “You know, a rainbow is God’s promise to us.”

Me: “That’s right. And what is the promise?”

Charlotte: “That next time, He’ll only drown the bad people.”

Me: “…”

Liam: “That means you, Charlotte.”
