From the Mouth of Miles: The Rock Video

"And he finds me that way and I love him doing that.
And he rocks me aroooound and he rocks me and he rocks me...
Daddy can you say YAY?
(Daddy cackling)
And he rocks me around. No, let's turn it off.
I'm all done."

Before you start to question our parenting abilities (or music taste) let me say that I have no idea where the lyrics came from. I don't often say "he rocks me." Not that often anyway. So I'm just not sure.

(Also, Miles currently looks about ten. This is a bit of an old video, but I had to share it.)
We were riding in the car recently and Miles asked about marriage. Kind of.
Miles - "But why do they live together?"
Me- "Because they're married."
Miles- "But why?"
Me-"You mean why do people get married?"
Miles- "Yes."
Me-"Well, people get married because they love each other and it's a way of making a choice to always be together, live in the same house and share a family forever."
Miles-"But why do you have to get all tied up to be loved?"
Silence. (except for stifled laughs from Ryan and I)
Me-"What do you mean?"
Miles- repeats exact question.
Ryan (oh, wise one)- "Miles, do you mean 'tying the knot'?"
Miles - "YEEEES, why do you do that?"
Me- (long explanation of what "tie the knot" does and DOES NOT mean.)
More guest posts to come next week. But only half the week. Because if I don't get back to blogging, my head could explode. There are many MANY words in there.

Have a good weekend.

Love kid quotes! Some people might think that expression of "tying the knot" is quite literal, but it is funny if you actually like your spouse.

There's very little that makes me laugh harder than the stuff kids think up when they're not trying to be funny. Although the funniest ever was my son explaining where babies came from when he was five.

Way too adorable! That is such a crack-up, I had to watch it twice. (or was it three times? Not sure . . not sure of much anymore . . )

He is a rock star! I love how he's a pro with the microphone.

Please don't let your head explode! We love the guest posts, AND we can't wait for you to come back!

Keyona said...

Well that was a perfectly good question!

I've been out of the blogging loop for a couple of weeks. It was nice to come back, though, and see that you were doing my favorite recurring post, "From the Mouth of Miles".

Kids are hillarious.

Hey there lady!
I'm sorry I haven't left a comment as of late, I've been devouring your blog posts both yours and guests. I have been feeling for you and your family so intensley having gone through such similar circumstances with Malachi. I wish you were closer and I could help in some way, and so I haven't known what to do and so I do nothing.
I want you to know that I am thinking about you guys and praying. I love how you can keep it together with little anecdotes and Miles by the way, how hilarious is he?
And Asher is such a little trooper.
Take Care you Extraordinary Family you!

Kids totally crack me up! They are the best entertainment.

Love the conversation about marriage. Kids are such an ready source of entertainment!

I could listen to that sound for hours. Oh babies! I just love them!

LisAway said...

That is beyond adorable. I'm so happy to finally see little Miles! What a doll. My gosh. He should totally be a songwriter. He has his, um, very own style! :)

I have to say, though, that the "cackling" of the father adds greatly to the overall effect.

This is me:

Watching. Laughing. Watching. Laughing. Watching. Laughing.
