ahh kids =)

today dori's son cooper was over and after having an oreo, he looked at me and said sincerely,"You have a really pretty house." too cute. "That's very nice of you Cooper, thank you." and then a pause. Cooper: "Yeah, and it's really messy too. It's always really messy." awwww. but then he added, "It is a pretty house."

you just never know what'll come out of those cute little mouths!

You do have a pretty house, and its not messy! I appologize for his lack of tact! The other day when he was getting his hair cut and old lady was in the chair next to him and Cooper said to her "Are you old?" and I tried to gently tell him not to say that but he blurted out really loudly, "But look! Look at her face!"

Hilarious! I love it :) Reminds me of the time we were shopping recently and Aidan pointed at a very pregnant woman and exclaimed, "Look Mommy, her tummy is HUGE!!" I'm sure it was just what she wanted to hear ;)

ha ha! actually, the house was a total mess. cooper was throwing his napkin away and had to walk past two giant piles of recycling sitting by the trashcan, my kitchen island was completely covered, there were toys covering every square inch of the family room and i was sorting clothes on the dining room table! i don't blame the guy! it was so cute though because he said it so sweetly and honestly. and it was funny because i was so impressed that he was paying me a compliment so i made sure to acknowledge it and thank him and was thinking, "gee, kieran should take a lesson." hee hee!

love the comments, kids keep you on your toes, or at least with a hand ready to cover their mouths!

HA HA HA! Thank you for sharing, Joanna. Now I don't feel so bad about the stuff all over my house. Our house is clean for about 10 minutes, actually...the main floor is clean for about 10 minutes a week. The upstairs, well, we won't go look up there...

ha ha! you know the funny thing is-he was talking about downstairs, but it's the upstairs that's a total disaster! i just come down in the morning and try to pretend i don't see it! just this evening before my parents came over to watch the kids and would have to come up to put the kids to bed, i cleaned up the upstairs, including our master bedroom which i had been trying to ignore for far too long when kieran ran into the room saying, "Wow! You cleaned up your room! It looks really nice! It's not bad here anymore!" geez! i knew i had let things go a little but man, i need to hang a scarlet "D" on the front door for "Dirty House"!!!

and seriously becki, i just don't believe you. either a) your definition of clean and mine are really different, or b) you put on a really good show just when we visit, 'cause it's like going to a museum when we visit! and i've never before opened someone's fridge and had every item and label "faced" and in perfect line! i just don't buy it!
