Something cute from the past

I am kind of treating my blog as an online diary, so I have somethings I will write that are "note" worthy for my children to read when they are older.

I really enjoy children between the ages of 4-6. Especially when they are talkative. At this age they say open and honest thoughts and opinions.

I think every family has one child that you wished you had a ongoing tape recorder so you don't miss anything. Among my siblings I believe this child was Patrick. So far with my children, this child was Andrew.

I remember after having, yet another ultrasound with the twins, photocopying various pictures the doctor took for me. I put about six on the page, and made one for Rosie, Matthew and Andrew. Andrew was in kindergarten and was 5 years old. I handed each child the page with the pictures on it. I was far enough along that you could see a hand, foot, arm, head, face profile, and even on one picture it showed a foot kicking the other one's bum.

Andrew pondered on his pictures for a minute. Then proclaimed, "That's why it takes so long!" I asked him what he meant by that. He replied, "It takes so long to have babies, cause God's got to put all the pieces together!"

I love that age...........
