take it or leave it.

We have been crazy busy between family in town for the blessing camping and the normal summer fun. I have fallen behind on my blogging and commenting... I have loads of pictures but no time to post them. My next post will be just pictures because I want to avoid the phone call from my mom asking why I haven't posted them yet. Until then Here are a few little moments of my life to get you through the rest of your weekend.

Rieken: Mom can I have a Jolly Rodger?
Me: You mean a Jolly Rancher?
Rieken:Yeah that's what I said a Jolly Rodger.

Me: Kip go change into dry pants so we can go to town.
Kippi: I only have my supremes (Capri's) left in my drawer so I'm never gonna be able to go because they aren't pants! ( Totally Dramatic)
Me: Capri's count just as long as they cover you up.
Kippi: Well why didn't you just say so!? (exasperated)

Kippi: Mom can I be done eating? (hardly touched her food)
Me: You need to eat five more bites of dinner.
Kippi: ( eating the very smallest five bites possible)
Me: those don't count because they were so small.
Kippi: Well you never said how big you just said five so take it or leave it.
Me: to slow to react before she cleared her plate.

Tonight we are doing this for dinner so no worries about a repeat performance from the dinner diva.

Yep, those moments sound very familiar to me too!

I just love that Kippi's way of thinking. She really needs to go to Law School when she's big!

Too cute! You'll be so glad you have these recorded! So who did the "take it or leave it" come from? Mom, Dad or Grandma?

take it or leave it is one of those I'm never saying that to my kids like my parents did things that I have totally changed my mind about.

I love that you guys are into picnic wear, we have had a hard time switching back to regular plates, cups as well. Hey it saves on the cleanup right.
