Overheard...

My boys and husband were having a conversation the other night - something along the lines of inviting a few friends over to have a little cookout before it gets too cold or whatever. I'm in the other room, working and listening (read: um 'eavesdropping' *ahem*) when I hear Hoyte asking who they might like to invite, and I await the usual list of neighborhood kids.

Then comes the voice of my youngest, age 5, piping up.

"Daddy?" he asks. "Can I invite my girlfriend??"

Uh, what??! I immediately peer into the room to see what's going on...

"Um, sure, buddy. Do you have a girlfriend?" my husband asks as he's taken a little off-guard.

Admist fits of giggles with his hand over his mouth, Carson replies...

"Yesssssss, but it's a see-kit!"

*******************

I'm so not ready for this. Apparently her name is Maddie! ;)

Too funny, wait until they get older, you will wish you didn't over hear the conversations, they get scarey.

OMG Kelly, he is absolutely beautiful! What an angel. I know, I know, I know it's been said before but it's TRUE...they grow up very, very fast! Drop what you're doing and pick that little man up and give him a squeeze! When he's 17, like mine, and a grown man the picking up and squeezing is a little difficult! And, remind the little guy that you're girlfriend #1.

A "see-kit" Girlfreind~that is SO SWEET!
When my youngest so was in Kindergarten, he decided he was going to marry Ellie. When Grandma asked him about it, he said "We just love each other too much"! He cried on the first day of 1st grade when they were in different classes, but he has "gotten over her" now...so funny. Erin Glee

girlfriends are cute!!! We have friends that live down the road that we have known since our oldest son was about a year old. Our friends' little girls are our 2 boys' ages so Andrew and Patrick have always said Mollie and Mia are their girlfriends. Cracks me up.
