Sarcasm

Wednesday, April 5th, 2006

This article was in Meridian today. I totally agree with it, and think that every couple should read it. Even if you’re not with someone, think about it.
Jon and I try not to use sarcasm in our relationship. This advice came from one of his mission presidents. Sometimes sarcastic remarks come out, but we are pretty good about it. Since he and I are not sarcastic, I’ve realized how much it was used in my life. Not that I am totally against joking around, just poking fun at someone, or being competitive about petty things. We still have our fun times and comments, but they aren’t towards making fun of one another. Anyhow I think it’s a good little article.

Does Sarcasm Belong in Our Relationships.

The things Lilah says

Monday, April 3rd, 2006

I love kids when they talk… at least until they get to the why stage…. I dislike that stage.
Here’s some funny things Lilah has said.

I probably pee and poop in the grass when I was a dog. I probably had paws when I was a dog. (we took Jack, Andrea’s dog, for his potty walk before a baby shower on Saturday. Now she keeps talking about watching him poop and pee on the grass. )

I probably feed Eden when I’m big. (referring to nursing Eden, like mommy does. I think she was even pulling up her shirt as she said this.)

During a prayer: “thank you for parents kind and dear. ” after singing I Am a Child of God before saying the family prayer.

We love Heavenly Father, we love Brien, we love Andrea, we love pillows.

We don’t flush fishes down the toilet. (her favorite phrase after she watches Finding Nemo, and she says it every time she has to go to the bathroom….it’s worn off now, but I know it will come back)

Look at my belly buttons. (Said while looking in a mirror, before her bath, and pointing to her nipples.)

laundry basket

I love house hold items. Children seem to have the most fun with the simplest things. Lilah loved the laundry basket when she was little so I’ve put it over Eden a few times. If Lilah is around she likes to be under it to, so I just let her have fun.
Here’s a picture of her asking Eden to come under the laundry basket.
Here’s Eden’s reponse to seeing the camera.

Here’s Lilah’s response to seeing the camera.

We went shopping for our veggies last night at Lowe’s and we also picked up a new door nob for the guest bathroom. (So Lilah can open the door on her own, from us closing it to keep Eden out.) I was excited so I decided I would put this door nob on. Jon had changed the other three, so I wanted to do this one. Here is a documentary of part of my experience. 🙂



I did most of it by myself. There were some screws that were to hard for me to tighten. (They are put on by the manufacturer to the door nob, and even Jon said they were much harder to screw in than the others. )
I’m so proud. Now I can break into people houses and change their door nobs. 🙂
I’d just like to add one more note. The pajama’s were given to me by my mom….they’re not really my taste, but they cover me. 🙂
