Sunday Funnies

Today we were at Target, and it seemed as if every single family in the store had a screaming kid for one reason or another. I am not talking about one child who was tired and having a bad moment, but passels of kids who were terrorizing the place. Kenny was trying on some shoes and Joshie was with Dominick when they heard one particularly raucous child on the next aisle stomping their feet and yelling at the top of their lungs at their father. Josh peeked around the corner and was watching when they came out into the center aisle where all could have a good look. This went on for several minutes before they moved on to another Department. That's when Josh turned away and said "I guess that's the end of that movie!".

We pass a dairy on the way up to our house, one that has about 3000 head of cattle. One corral as next to the road and as we drove past this afternoon, Matthew's head swung around and with a raised voice he said "Hey Mom...look at that, those cows are FIGHTING!!! I've never seen them do that before!" as he craned his neck to get a closer look. Poor kid blushed bright red and then he and his brothers all cracked up when I said "Uhhh....no honey, that's not fighting...that's making babies!". He looked at me with eyes as wide as saucers as my words sunk in and he sputtered "Oh...well...um...they don't look like they like it very much1!" as the giggling continued in the back seat.

They are all so much like their Dad.
