Just Another Poo Funny

*Getting into our car*

Me:   "Something pooped on my window!"

Gabe: "It wasn't me!!!"

A Boy's Mind

On the drive to school this morning:

Me:   Awe man, I got spinach smoothie on my shirt!

Gabe:  It's okay Mom.  Just dunk it in the toilet and let it dry when you get to school!

Rug Burn


     It seems this blog may sadly be coming to an imminent end. My once rambunctious 3 year old is now an ever maturing 8 year old.  Since starting this blog he has accepted Jesus Christ as his Savior, lost a half dozen baby teeth, read novels on his own, learned multiplication tables and attempted to manipulate his dad and I to get what he wants.  Oh Gabe... we adore you and we pray you would continue to grow and mature in your faith and your friendships with others.  I'm so incredibly glad that you are my son.  You make me smile every single morning with your big toothy grin, bright eyes, and quick wit.  I am so proud of you.

I am happy to bring you all a quick Gabe-ism to brighten your day.

Me:  "Gabe, how did you get that big scrape on your head?"

Gabe:  "Oh, I was just rubbing my forehead on the carpet really fast."

Make Up

This morning while stopped at a red light on the way to school, I was rubbing foundation into my face when this question was asked:

Gabriel: "Why do you put make up on, Mom? So your face looks normal?"

In God We Trust

Today Gabe was looking at a $20 bill in the back seat that I let him hold to pay for basketball camp. As he started at it intently, he asked me....

"Why does it say 'In God We Trust', Mom?"

Me: "Well, our country was founded on God's principals in the Bible, and America is a place where we put our faith in God to protect and guide our country."

Gabe: "Well... how come there are so many people in America who don't trust in God?"

Great conversation that followed about free will, freedom, putting our faith in things other than God and what happens when we do that. Love that my little guy is becoming quite the thinker. :) Love his questions, even when they're tough.

Knock Knock!

Gabe: "Knock Knock!"

Justin: "Who's there?"

Gabe: "Banana!"

Justin: "Banana who?"

Gabe: "Orange you glad I didn't say banana?"


Gabe: "Mom, can we watch Shiloh? It has a lot of good lessons in it!"

Me: "Like what?"

Gabe: "Don't kick puppies."
