Tiny Talk Tuesday

Tiny Talk Tuesday celebrates our children and their view of the world. They continually make us laugh and by recording their Tiny Talk we can focus on one of the many JOYS of parenting! If your kiddos made you laugh this week (don't they always), then feel free to share the humor! Check out more Tiny Talks with Mary.

Since the last time I checked in with Tiny Talk Tuesday my little guy has turned 5 years old.....and everyone knows that "5 means I am so big". One of his first comments of the day was, "my hands are soooo big now that I am 5"! Cracked me up!
We started his birthday celebration with opening presents, which is the best way to start a birthday ya know!

After presents we went to Chuck-E-Cheese and played a ton of games. He even got me involved in some of them! Of course, he beat me....which was a highlight of his day! He has grown enough that he can reach the air hockey table without a chair....another bonus of being 5, no doubt!

After all our celebrating of the little man's birthday we started our Christmas traveling. This picture is of my two guys being goofy together at Grandma Karen's house.

We have been recouperating from our travels and of course, I'm trying to get over the flu/cold from you-know-where. Of course That Other Kid has been playing and being his normal self and saying some pretty interesting things....now that he is 5!

He started attending AWANAS with his friend back in November and he's progressing really well through the book, but last night he was getting stuck on John 14:6. Jesus said unto them, I am the way, the truth and the life....
"I keep getting stumberned on this verse for sparks". He was very frustrated with himself.....and dh and I could hardly keep from laughing!

He has been watching way too much tv and playing a lot of Wii since I have sick, so he is always looking for the "marotes"! (remotes)

He asked dh to help him with the "constructions" to build a new lego kit. The funniest part of that is that that is exactly what That Kid used to call instructions when he was a little boy. That cracked me up!

I guess this just goes to show that no matter how big the age span in siblings they really are similar.

Your "big boy" looks like he'd get along just fine with my little terrorist, with his light saber and all. So sorry about the sickness. I hate being sick because it pretty much that my little guy ends up watching lots of movies while I recuperate.

Isn't it funny when mis pronunciations appear again?

We call my grandmother "Gema" because I couldn't say grandma. We all just stared when my daughter called my mom "Gema" when she was 2...

Happy TTT!
