I love their little hearts and minds

We're house hunting right now, we need a home. It's been a frustrating and not so fun journey. However, we KNOW that God has the right home for us and we are excited about what He has in store for us. Through the stress, it's nice to hear things like this from my kiddos:

O (my oldest): "Mom, I'm going to make a bunch of money. I'll make tons so Dad can be home for like 50 years! Wouldn't that be nice mom? No work for Daddy for like 50 years?! .... Is that a long time mom? Or is that little like nap time?"

"Mom, can we give this house to someone who needs it?" (referring to our little rented town home). I assured him that someone else would love our place as much as we have because it's a good home and our landlord is the nicest guy ever.

When talking to out children about house hunting and while visiting homes we've had lots of great comments! Things like,

"Mom, this house smells funny. We won't buy it if it stinks, right?"
"MOM, I HAVE to go POO POO!" (from my middle son at EVERY home because he wanted to sit on every toilet.)
"If we buy this house can we have their toys?"
"Where are the people that live in this house now gonna live?? Are they going to take our old house? We can switch, mom. That'd be nice."

Odd Confessions..

The other day I noticed that I need to exfoliate my face, but didn't have any face exfoliant... so I used foot scrub.

Sometimes I hope that my kids will be too full to finish something they're eating so that I can have it.

When I was pregnant with my oldest child, we were heading to McCalister's for lunch and my water broke... I did not obey drs orders and go straight to the hospital. I sat down and ate a giant sandwich and drank a sweet tea.

There's more, but that's all I'm telling for now.

I am not a meat eater, hate the taste! Always have! But I'm fine with my kids eating meat, I have nothing against it. However, I hated knowing that my dad was a hunter growing up. I was always sure that the deer he brought home was Bambi's mother... so here's the latest chat with our 4 year old...
O: Mom, where does steak come from? Does it grow?
(my hub and I look at each other... I really don't want to discuss where meats come from)
me: Umm. no. It's meat, it comes from cows.
O: Like milk?
hubby: Well, not really it's...
Me:(interrupting) Yes. Like milk.
O: hmm. Well, I like steak.
Me: Good honey.

While we're waiting.....

So, life got a bit crazy. We thought we'd found a super amazing deal on a house! It was going to be awesome!!.... and then it fell apart. After much work and hope and excitement... it was not going to happen. So... moving on! We know that God has something in store for us and we're trusting that He has perfect timing for the perfect place.
But while we wait, I enjoy some things that make my time go fast. Things like this conversation that make me laugh:
Me to my 3yr old: "Hey bub, come help empty the dishes from the dishwasher."
Him: "Ok mom.... but just a minute... my buns are itchy so I'm scratching them."
Me: "..... ummm. New plan, meet me in the bathroom and let's wash hands!"

I love being a mom.
