Sunday dinner conversation

Tonight's dinner conversation was a little more entertaining than usual.  It went a little somethin' like this:

ME, trying to convince Ryan to eat his dinner (as if that's anything new): "Ryan, do you remember the cookies I made last night?  You got to eat one on the way to church for getting dressed?"  (Yes, I bribed my son with a cookie for putting his clothes on this morning.)
RYAN: "Yeah?"
ME: "So what do you need to do in order to get another cookie?"
RYAN: "Be nice."
{CORRECT ANSWER: "Eat your dinner."}

Just then a third party chimes into the conversation.
CHLOE: "You made ALL those cookies by yourself?"
ME: "Yes!"
: "After we went to bed last night?"
ME: "Yes!"
: "Really?"
: "Yes!"
CHLOE: "Holy cow, girl!"

I should have said this earlier but Ryan's response to virtually every question beginning with, "What do you have to do in order to______?" is, "Be nice." "...get a treat?" "...go to JD's house?" "...ride your bike?" " to Grandma" "...not go back to timeout?" Relevant or not, "Be nice" is his answer.

And Chloe calling me, "girl"?  I don't know where she comes up with this stuff!  Sometimes she acts more like a teenager than a five year old.

They make me laugh.

"Holy cow, girl" ha ha ha.....that's so hilarious....and just precious! Was it an extra large number of cookies you made? It makes you wonder just why she thought it was so amazing that you made ALL THOSE COOKIES ALL BY YOURSELF! AFTER THEY WENT TO BED!

And yes, I can just hear sweet little Ryan saying, "Be nice...." to all of those questions.

What darlings.....

Love it all sooo much! Aw.....just makes me miss them! ...and you! And Neil! Just want to grab all of you...

You're such a wonderful mom....
Love you allllll....
