Kiddie Chatter: School Days Edition

These days, my little people are babbling founts of information when they get in the car after school. Today's conversation had me in stitches.
R: (In his trademark gravelly, deep, little man voice) "Mom! Did you know that next week there is going to be a lady that looks in all our lunch bags to make sure we have a pwo-tein AND a fwuit in dere. So, you need to make sure and we-mem-ba a pwo-tein and a fwuit, like, um-ba, maybe some bwocolli and peaches!" (For the record, I have been observing these rules, already.)

A few minutes later I asked P about a note I got from his teacher today. The first part said, "P told me that it hurt his legs to sit 'criss cross applesauce.' Is there a different position I should try?" (This is not true, by the way.)
Me: "P, did you tell Ms. Shannon it hurt you to sit cross cross applesauce?"
P: (Completely busted defense whatsoever.)
Me: "Let's remember to always tell the truth, buddy. Do you know what the rest of the note says? It says: "Otherwise, P is fantastic!"
R: WOW, P! What'd you do to be fantastic?"

Everyone had a terrific second day, but I did get a report that K cried a litle at rest time because she 'missed Mommy and wanted to snuggle." I resisted the urge to tell her I felt the same way.

I could read about "kiddie chatter" all day long...such fun tidbits.

Glad to hear that they are settling in well. Is next week the first full week?

I love it! Your kids are adorable!

Mine started to kindergarten on Wednesday. We have enjoyed listening to them talk about their day and what they learned.

Your blog is a blessing to me!

I blogged this morning about this being the first time in 20 years that I haven't readied a child to go back to school.
It feels weird.
But, it's wonderful to read so many other blogs of moms that are doing just that and their feelings as they do.
Blessings to you!

One day you will be SOOOO glad you have this blog to look back on and remember the cute things they say. I've just been going through some things and found a list of cute things my 7 yr old used to say. I can't believe the things I thought were so cute and I don't remember her saying them AT ALL now. Thanks goodness I wrote them down!

How wonderfully sweet! It never fails to amuse me the conversations that my little ones have, and I love to hear about what yours have to say.

Aaaaaahhhh!How precious.
I bet P didn't have to do anything to be fantastic.
Thanks for sharing this snapshot of your little sweeties.
