From the Mouths of Miles AND Asher (since he talks now and stuff...a little)

Wednesday~September 9, 2009

All this time, I've titled posts "From the Mouth of Miles." Now I get to add Asher. This is gonna be even more fun than before. Double the hilarity. Here goes:


There is my absolutely delicious Miles.


I asked him to have Asher help him with something and he said,
"But my brother is NOT helpful, he's MEANFUL!"

~~~~~~~~~~

He and Asher are on my bed, staring up at the ceiling and doing nothing but talking. Well actually, Miles is talking and Asher is saying, "uh huh" over and over. Miles says, "I asked God for a lot of brothers." Then he adds, pointing up, "Look! Do you see them? All the brothers falling from the sky?"

(OK, so I was a bit terrified while eavesdropping on this one...falling from the sky? NOW? Does this mean I'm pregnant with twins or sextuplets or something???? ALL boys??? NOW???...But I'm not...I don't think.)

~~~~~~~~~~

The boys are at the table having breakfast when they suddenly think that someone is in the driveway. I tell them that there's no one there, that no one is here to visit because it's way too early. Miles asks why so I explain that they get up much earlier than most people. He asks why again. I say, "I really wish I had an answer for that." To which Miles says that he knows why, and it's because, "we're much faster sleepers." Oh. Of course.

~~~~~~~~~~~


I'm changing Asher's diaper and he points at some butt lotion. So, being the excellent caregiver that I am, I ask him if his butt hurts. He says, "uh huh." So I reiterate, you know, to help with language development and all that, by saying, "Oh, you want some lotion?" To which he responds...


wait for it....



"Moisture."


Clear as day.

Moisture!

Seriously, kid. Your longest clearly spoken word has been GUM, and you add MOISTURE?

Hilarity.



The End.

ok, seriously now, i totally wish i could be a faster sleeper. think of all the interwebs i could see if i could cram 8 hrs of sleep into 3 hrs.

And i'm really glad your littler man realizes the importance of butt moisture.

And lots of brothers sounds REALLY exciting. maybe I'll ask god for miles to have lots of brothers too. :-)

i mean come on. you? pregnant with multiples? while chasing around those two?

that's blogging gold right there.

Blessed said...

Hmmm... sleeping faster? Definitely something I need to learn to do!

Oh and I love the moisture one - that is great!

Angie said...

Your boys are AWESOME... must have an awesome mom or something. ;)

C @ Kid Things said...

Moisture! That's funny.

Kathy B! said...

I wonder if I could get a lesson in this business of fast sleeping?! I could get all sorts of things done!

K said...

Meanful...we get some of that around here, too.

Annette Lyon said...

What will his next word be, "literature"? The little guy is cracking me up.

mandiegirl said...

You've got me laughing out loud here! :) Too cute!

Keyona said...

We all like a bit of Moisture on our butts every now and then! LOL!

Wendi @ Every Day Miracles said...

I love the unexpected things - never knowing what will come out of their mouths when. :) -Or what their clearest word will be. Hilarious!

I feel like boys fell out of the sky at our house... :)I'm about to lose count.

H-Mama said...

that's too cute! good for you, mom, writing it all down. :)

Jenn @ A Country Girl's Ramblings said...

Love these posts...as always!

jen@odbt said...

It's great that we have these blogs to capture their sayings. Love the faster sleepers comment. I must be a slow sleeper ;)

a Tonggu Momma said...

I need to learn how to sleep faster. Especially as I have a bad cold at the moment and could use a few extra zzzs.

♥georgie♥ said...

OOh my Heather i SO needed this giggle today...loved the we're faster sleepers!

L.T. Elliot said...

I like Asher's additions. =] The meanful thing is applicable to some of my siblings too!

MommyJ said...

Have said it once, and will say it again. I LOVE kid speak. :) Very cute.

Lara said...

Moisture. I'm still laughing.

Will you ask Miles how one learns to sleep faster? I'm thinking that's my whole problem.

Susan warmchocmilk said...

Seriously laughed out loud with the moisture thing! Butt Moisture no less. Kids are crazy beings!!

Jo@Mylestones said...

Caed would like to challenge Miles to a race of who can sleep the fastest. Ready set GO! ;)

Nap Warden said...

"meanful" I will use that one;)

Jenni Jiggety said...

I enjoy the moisture on my bottom, as well...

Steph @ Diapers and Divinity said...

My kids are fast sleepers too. And everytime I read this "column," I love it and think, "I should really write more of kids' stuff down." And I don't.

But thanks for at least inspiring the intention.

Jen said...

The stuff that kids say is awesome.

Jena said...

Too funny - thanks for the laugh - I just love what kids say, and thanks to my blog I have been better about keeping track of what comes out of their mouths ;-)

Carrie said...

That is so funny - it is hilarious what words they just come out with, that they've been storing in their big heads for who knows how long! :) I call Desitin 'butt cream', so Z calls it "keem". :)

Kimberly said...

Those boys of yours are so darling. And "moisture" totally cracked me up!

blueviolet said...

A faster sleeper....LOL, that's so funny!

I can not believe he said moisture. I just can't.

Haley said...

This is a great little post.

I'm a slow sleeper myself.

My brother didn't talk alot either when he was small, but the one day just blurted out "beverage"...just like that.

"beverage"

I think my mom felt the same way you did about moisture.

:-)

Brillig said...

Oh. Mygosh. Hi-frickin-larious! And so stinking cute!

(And good luck with all those boys falling from the sky...)

Sande said...

I have six boys here you can borrow ...:)

Tracey - Just Another Mommy Blog said...

This made me smile. A lot. Thanks.

Debbie said...

Adorable, as always. I so love the fast sleeper excuse. I'm telling you - the boy is headed for politics!
But, in a good way:)

Deb said...

ugh, i have a fast sleeper at my house... he's 16 now and not much has changed!

sextuplets, huh?

Kate Coveny Hood said...

I love that last one. He's like the baby who skipped crawling and went straight to walking. He skipped "ouchie" and went straight to "moisture."

minnesotamom said...

Super-cute and one of my favorite reads, as usual! Moisture...cracking me UP!

Kelly @ Love Well said...

Teyla woke up at 5:50 this morning. UP FOR THE DAY.

As I was laying there in a sleepy haze, I thought of you and your boys. "If only we lived closer," I yawned to myself. "They could all sleep fast together."

Eowyn said...

LOL. Those were hilarious!
