Who Are You Calling Chicken?

It's possible that I have either passed on my love of chickens to the kids or that we are creating little country loving children. Maybe both.

May I introduce to you: Lego Chicken

Ask Your Kids These Questions

0 comments
After reviewing the answers from their siblings, the kids would like you to know:

Bean:
I do like going to the pool.
I don't make Tot laugh? What?
I am good at drawing.
I might be a hair cutter and make up designer, maybe.
Hot dog is my favorite food.

Tot:
My favorite thing to do isn't watch TV, it's play outside. 
I'm not really good at swimming (Bean yells "she is good at swimming") Tot says she's thinking about swim team, but she would have to practice.
A professor? I'm thinking about another job. I'm thinking about hair cutter. Teacher.

Blue:
"I hear it, I hear it, I hear it" (apparently this is what you say when you are four, annoying, and don't want to hear it).

No Box Is Safe

0 comments
Around here, no box, no clean piece of paper, no envelope, no marker is safe. And Duck (Duct) tape is certainly not safe. Not safe from the hands of Bean who will mold, build, create, design, and develop nothing into something.
The kid not only builds things but she also includes an incredible amount of detail. Take note of the mailbox, the television showing Tom and Jerry, and the door handle on the door. Bean's not playing around when it comes to creativity.

She Pushed Me

0 comments
So Blue has this thing he does. It's both annoying and a little frightening.

You will be across the room.
Blue will not get what he is requesting.
Blue will start crying.
Blue will throw himself on the floor.
Blue will yell "YOU PUSHED ME!!!!"
While you are still standing across the room.

This also works for tripping, hitting, or shoving but always results in Blue on the floor and a person no where within reach.

This kid is something. I'm waiting for this to happen in an aisle at the store while random strangers are calling CPS on us.

Rooster-A-Doodle-Doo

1 comments
Recently our neighbor asked if we would like to have one of his roosters. Because he did a large order, he ended up with three. After asking repeatedly if the rooster was nice, I was promised that he was. So, our neighbor brought him over on New Year's Eve. Within a few hours he had escaped and Bee and I spent at least forty minutes chasing him around the woods around our house in the dark. We finally decided that we were going to let him fend for himself overnight and whatever happened, happened. We woke up the next morning to him crowing in the driveway.
So far, he's fine with me and the kids and seems to take his job of watching over the girls very seriously. Thanks to Chicken Math we are now at seven chickens. All I ever wanted was an experience for the kids. Well, they've gotten it.
