Kids Say The Darndest Things

There have been a few things that Ryan has said lately that I want to remember, so I want to document them here.

Just after having Leah, I was saying that I didn't want the kids to grow up.  Ryan overheard this and said:
Ryan: "But I want to grow up."
Me:  "Why do you want to grow up?"
Ryan: "Because when I grow up I can cook dinner and make the bed."  

Oh the things he looks forward to.

Once in a while I'll look at Leah and say something about her being a little princess.  (Yes, I'm one of those mothers that calls her little girl a princess, and no I never thought I'd be one like that).
When Ryan heard me call her a princess, this is what he had to say:
"She is not a princess.  She doesn't have enough hair.  She still needs to grow hair here and here and here (pointing at various points on her head).  That is why I call her gweetie pie."  (sweetie pie)

Even now he'll yell at me if I call her princess.

Yesterday in the car he said:
"Easy Mommy.  There is a baby in the car.  You have to drive S-L-O-W-L-Y when there is a baby in the car."  

He is rather smart and protective.  But for the record, I was not speeding.

I hope you all have a great weekend.

Ryan is such a sweet older brother! That will come in handy when she gets a little older. I love that he wants to grow up so he can do chores. Oh the magic of cooking and cleaning!
