The Funny Things Kids Say...

I want to marry a mermaid and a princess.

Mike, 4 years old


Me: What are you doing?

Breeze: Screaming in the bathroom.

Me: Why?

Breeze: Cause it's funny.

(3 years old)


Andy: I'm gonna shoot you dead like a deer!
(3 years old)

Not so funny, definitely shocking when heard from a 3 year old towards another 3 year old boy because he sat next to Andy's "girlfriend"...


Me: Are you going to play in the water today?

Breeze: Yeah, just wait, I need my space suit.

Me: What do you need?

Breeze: My space suit

Me: Why?

Breeze: So I can go Swimming, I need my space suit on.


Me: What do you think about the Presidents Health care plan?

Hallee: Bugs.

Me: Yeah I think there is lots of bugs too. Any other thoughts?

Hallee: Yeah... Dirt.

I think this 4 year old understand more than people may think :)

What happens if you eat to many green beans?

According to a three year old in my preschool class, "If you eat too much green beans you'll turn into a frog."

So just a warning, if you do not wish to turn into a frog, keep your green bean consumption down.

New Calling

I have just began a new calling in church. I am the in Young Women's program, serving as the Beehive Adviser. I accepted the calling with little reservations, but now as I am preparing to teach these precious young women I fear that I won't be able to meet the needs of these young women. I remember my years of young womens. I remember having leaders who made me feel loved, included, and a special part of the church. They taught me what it meant to be a daughter of God, and they touched my life in many ways that I cannot begin to explain. These leaders were vital in my conversion and maintance of church membership during my teenage years. I know that God will not give us more than we can handle, I am still worried that I won't be able to love and serve these young women like I need to. I am humbled to be in this position, and looking forward to learning and growing in this new calling. Despite my worries I know that as I prayerfully prepare for each Sunday and each activity the Lord will help me to lead these young women.

(Cherie Call)

Look at all the signs, Look at all the shows
All the glamorous people who claim to know
What perfection is and what makes beauty stay
But when all the styles go out and the labels fade away

It's what you give that makes you beautiful
It's how you live that makes your dreams come true
Keep your faith in this world,
And let the light of the Lord shine through
That's what makes you beautiful

Nothing burns as bright, nothing shimmers so
As the smile of a friend when hope is running low
And how your hand feels warm when you dry a tear
Love is still in fashion at the end of every year

It's what you give that makes you beautiful
It's how you live that makes your dreams come true
Keep your faith in this world,
And let the light of the Lord shine through
That's what makes you beautiful

Even roses fade away in the snow
But the beauty in your heart can always grow

It's what you give that makes you beautiful
It's how you live that makes your dreams come true
Keep your faith in this world,
And let the light of the Lord shine through
That's what makes you beautiful

A Wonderful Gift

I was able to witness the sealing and marriage of my brother in-law to his wife this morning. I have been thinking a lot about what happened during the sealing. While I cannot tell the details of the ceremony I can tell you how wonderful it made me feel. Being there while an eternal family is bound together for time and all eternity is one of the most wonderful things in the world. I have been running through the ceremony in my head all day today. The insight that was given to Dan and Susie about how they should treat each other was wonderful. The temple president sealed them and he read the scripture about a husband and wife cleaving unto each other and no one else. He brought up that your husband or wife should be the center of your world, that there is nothing and no one else who should ever hold that spot besides your spouse. It is so important that we watch out actions and our priorities and make sure that there is no one and nothing placed before your spouse. I love Chris with all my heart and I do my best to make sure that Chris is in the center of my world. That is just one of the many things that touched my heart during this ceremony. I do not feel the need to share any specifics from their wonderful sealing, the specifics are not important to know. What is the most important part is how strong the spirit of the Lord was and how wonderful it felt. I have a strong testimony that Temple Marriage seals couples together for eternity. I felt the amazing power as they were sealed together, it was an instant and I could feel the amazing transformation from two separate individuals into an eternal family. What a blessing to know and understand the wonderful power that exists in the Holy Temples of the Lord, and the amazing blessings that are given in those Temples.

I don't want to complain... but...

I had a very frustrating day at work, which when you work at Kindercare it is a very common occurrence. Anyways, I walked into work today and went into my classroom only to find my cot cart covered with stuff... every time I turn around I am being told that there should be nothing on the cart, however it always manages to get filled up when I turn my back and then they get mad at me. Okay so the cart is covered and there are all these shirts on it, so I ask what I am suppose to do with the shirts, because I had no idea what they were for. When the Assistant Director snaps at me that they are for painting so that the kids don't get it on their clothes, I said okay, and turned around to go put the shirts away and then she decides to keep talking. Then asks very snottily and in the same down talking manner she was using if I am listening to her. I turn and say "yeah I am." Then she turned and answered the phone and I went on my way.
Now do you think that this is an incident worth a write-up? I was working I asked a simple question to which she was rude to me in answering and used a very rude tone, and then expects me to be happy that she is talking down to me? Then threatens a write-up for me. I am at work everyday on time, I do my job well, my kids like me, the parents like me, and I jump through the hoops they like to make me jump through. And she is going to write me up over this?
So honestly to anyone who reads this, do you think the action is justified? What should I do? Is there anything?

I went to the Dr. today and he decided that we needed to do some bloodwork. I never worry to much about bloodwork I have donted blood many times. It hurt today though and it now hurts to extend my Right elbow, and my left arm is tender. Sad day... The first time she tried to draw the blood out of my left arm and it hurt and she said she was sorry, and then shortly after she asked how it felt, and my response "well it doesn't feel good" I guess I was a bit of a smarty pants... Anyways she had fun teasing me about my response while she tried to get the other arm.
