"A merry heart doeth good like a medicine"

Are any of your homes full of as much comedy as ours is? I wish I could have a video camera running 24/7....I'd win America's funniest home video for sure. There are so many funny stories I could tell, but I'll spare you and just give you a brief overview. =0)

1. Okay, so Lydia gets sick Tuesday afternoon with a fever that runs until Wednesday. She is just plain funny about getting her temperature taken. She couldn't grasp the fact that once the thermometer was under her tongue she had to leave it there. She would shut her mouth and the thermometer would start moving because she was playing with it with her tongue. The goober. I think we had to take it atleast 4 times each time to get it right.
2. I got a phone call from my Mom yesterday morning. I knew she had worked the night before. So when I answered the phone I was expecting her usual, "I'm calling you so I don't fall asleep driving home" and hearing about her night at work. (She's an ICU nurse.) Instead I hear, "Lainey!! I've made a discovery!" Now I'm all ears. She is not usually peppy after working all night! Naturally I was wondering what in the world was going on. So she continues to tell me that she has just had an epiphany....she then explains, "I've discovered that you don't need to chew to eat a Reese's peanut butter cup. That means when I'm old and don't have any teeth I can still eat them!" Is my mommy funny or what? I told her thank you and that I would now sleep better at night knowing that. =) (I love you mom!!)

3. Caleb is now completely potty trained but he says the most hilarious things while he is going potty. If you are not a parent and have never potty trained a child and want to skip the "potty talk"...fine. =) But to those of you who have been there, you will find it comical.
The first one happened just days into being potty trained. Steven took him to the bathroom and he started going potty and he shouts with glee, "Look Daddy!! It's squirting!!!" Later that day I took him to the potty and he's sitting there and starts to get frustrated after only about 15 seconds. He then looks at me and says in a little pathetic voice, "Mommy....turn it on, make it squirt." So amidst trying to stifle my laughter and gain my composure I tried to explain to him that only he could do that. I walked out for just a minute and hear him hollering from the bathroom, "Mommy, I did it!! I turned it on! I made it squirt!!!" It was just too funny.

One day last week Auntie Amy was at our house and Caleb had to go potty. He hadn't been sitting there long and he started calling her. When she got there he proudly announced that he had gone poo-poo in the potty. So of course she clapped for him and told him what a big boy he was. Well, then Caleb goes, "Look at it Auntie Mimi...it's sooooo cute! Do you want to touch it?" HA!!
I do believe the incident last night takes the cake. Steven and I are in the dining room working on his laptop designing our Christmas card. Lydia and Caleb are playing happily and then I hear, "Sissy! I have to go potty!" and Lydia replies, "Okay, I'll take you potty." At this point I'm very interested in what is going to happen next. I just sat back and watched them enter the bathroom. Then I sat there trying to listen to what they were saying. I gathered the fact that he did more than just pee-pee in the potty so I walked over there and peaked in the bathroom. Lydia is getting toilet paper. So I motioned to Steven and hurried back over to the bathroom to quietly watch them. We got back just in time to see Lydia wiping Caleb! She's acting all "mommyish", but going, "Ooooo...yuck." And then Caleb asks, "Did you get it on your fingers?!" Oh my....our children are CRAZY!!!
So yeah, our family is pretty nutty and we enjoy being that way. =) Below are some pictures of Caleb after bath with his wild hair.

Isn't that cheesy grin so cute?
