A: Mom, when I get older, if people offer me something to smoke, I'm going to tell them "NO"! Me: I hope so, Ashlyn. You know why mommy and daddy don't smoke? A: No. Why? Me: Because it is so bad for you. It damages your lungs. A: Ohhhhh. I see. If you smoke, you can't breathe. Me: Over time, yes. A: And if you can't breathe, you can't talk....ohhhh, Momma, that is a tragedy! Good thing my girl loves to talk.

Word of the Day

In reference to something being VERY funny.

Ashlyn: Momma, that is SOOOO Hysterious!

I believe that is a combination of "Hilarious" and "Hysterical."

In French

Ashlyn had a friend playing over at the house.

Friend: Ashlyn, can I play with your baby dolls?
A: nuh-uh!
Friend: I'm going to tell your momma.....Mrs. Andreaaaaaa!
A; Waaaaait! It's in French! "Nuh-uh" is French for "Yes!"

Such a clever way to get out of trouble. :)

A: can I watch a show now?
M: now ashlyn, I told you that because you were disrespectful, that you would not be watching anything else tonight.
A: mom?
M: yes, ashlyn?
A: can you give me one of those grace things?
M: grace things?
A: yea, you know how you teach me about Jesus' grace: "getting something I don't deserve?"
M: yes.
A: well I was thinking you could give me one of those grace things and let me watch a show even though I don't deserve it.

Noah's Brick Boat

While I was laying down with Ashlyn tonight, and getting ready to pray, she reminded me that we had not yet read a bible story.

A - Momma, you could read the story of Noah. Cause that's what I learned about this morning at church.
M - Yeah, the story of Noah is a good one.
A - You know the people laughed at Noah and told him, "Ha ha, it has never rained!"
M - That's right.
A - You know momma, God can give you anything you need. Like He could give them the wood they needed to build the ark. And He could give them the bricks too.
M - I don't know that they used bricks, baby.
A - Well, God can give you anything you need. He could have given them bricks. In fact, (pointing up to the ceiling and gesturing down to herself) if I asked God for a pink polka dotted ceiling fan, He could like just send it down from the air to my room right now.

Missing backpack

Ashlyn couldn't find her is what she said to me:

A - Momma, it really disturbs me that I can't locate my backpack!

Disturbs?!? Locates?!? This kid cracks me up!

Scrambled vocabulary

M - Ashlyn, do you want eggs for breakfast?

(Ashlyn comes running into the kitchen SUPER excited)

A - YES! And Momma, can I PLEASE help you hatch the eggs?!?!

Haha...we may need to review some vocabulary before school begins ;)
