I was detained at the border…

...on my way into America... twice! If you happened to read my DMV adventures and the issues I had considering my common name, you are going to love this one... The entire family went up to Niagara Falls this past weekend for an Irish Dance competition for my daughter, and we stayed on the Canadian side. Getting into Canada was easy, a few questions, and we were on our way to the hotel. We had a nice meal and hit the hotel to rest up for the competition in New York, just over the border, the next Read more [...]

Kids Say v27.0

I have been a little lax recording some Kids Say and have a few to share: Noah, in an effort to explain his sister's poor chore habits said, "Maybe by the time Hannah is my age she will have a little motivation, because I have a little bit." At least he is honest ;) Hannah, on seeing a Bolivian restaurant asked my wife why anyone would want to eat there because they would have to throw up afterward... just think about it for a moment. Finally, this evening. Hannah was insulted and fairly verbal Read more [...]

Kids Say v26.0

This was not from one of my kids, but it is definitely a keeper. I was in Kroger, getting the ingredients to make my FIL peanut butter pie for his birthday, when I noticed a young boy (maybe 2), sitting in the cart, with a parent on either side of him, pulling off his shirt. I then saw the reason, he had gotten sick and it was all over him and a large puddle had formed on the floor. My heart went out to the parents, we have all been there, and they were struggling trying to get him squared away Read more [...]

Kids Say v25.0

On Friday I saw a friend who mentioned he was going overseas to teach English and bring them Jesus . The kids and I were chatting after the fact and Noah said “I thought that was ‘cool’ until I found out that it was about Jesus and then I thought it was ‘really cool. ‘”

Hannah added “it would be cool to teach English in a different country. I want to go to Australia.” Oh Hannah. ;)

Kids Say, v.24.0

Noah is into Facebook, maybe a little too much, but he is doing well in school, wrestles, still plays his guitar and drums, so who am I to complain.

Anyway, last night he posted “Like this for a ‘first impression.'”, so I liked it. His reply:

“First impression: AHHHH WHYS IT SO BRIGHT?!?! AGHH THAT GUYS GIANT WAHHHHH.”

That kid cracks me up. Love you buddy.

Kids Say, v.23.0

Sunday morning, Hannah is watching 'The Parent Trap', the one with Lindsay Lohan. Noah is eating but can see the TV from the kitchen. I am in my office, trying to get some freelance work done, when from the other room I hear Noah say; "I know she got all drunk, and addicted to drugs and everything, but I want to know what happened to the other girl in this movie. I never hear anything about her." I had to stop working I was laughing so hard, and I went and gave him a hug. I love his twisted view Read more [...]

Kids Say, v.22.0

We really don’t have time to go into the whole story because some times, when SOMEBODY tells a story, he can get a little long winded, especially after caffeine. So, I am going to present these two Noahisms, which I thought were quote-worthy simply on their own merit without the back-story.

“My English teacher is OK, but he talks the entire class time.”

“It’s is a good Christian song, it pumps me up, it makes me want to smash things.”

Yup, he said those.
