My Kids, They Have Quirks

I just learned of Noah's secret stash of Tootsie Rolls from the bank and fortune cookies from dinner last night... he is saving them for when his friend comes to stay tomorrow night.

And Gray, well, the last three nights he has gone to bed with a glove on one hand. The night before, it was a camouflage fleece mitten. Last night was a red stretchy glove. Just on one hand.
Okaaaay.

We're off to the park now (Tuesdays are park days around here) where Carter will no doubt charm all the moms with his sweet smiles and fascinating stories.



Ok- back from the park and oh yes did Carter do some charming... here he is with his new "lady" Allison!

  2. Mine wants a hat on her bedpost every night.

    I've convinced her that she can't sleep in a costume. And no hats or boots at the table.

  3. But such cute quirks! My daughter has a secret stash of the pompoms she has ripped off her bedspread. I found them in the corner under her bed the other day. :-)

  4. Funny. Now that my kids are older, they find my not-so-secret stash of dark chocolate and Caribou Coffee bars. We all have our quirks, and our stash of 'secret' goodies!

  5. One of my kids would take the shampoos and the wet naps from where ever we would go. When I found the big stash I asked, why do you have this? He said they give them away and what if I ever need it. Yes, he has a problem with germs - maybe he thought we would run out at home and he would have a back up. The older he gets the better he gets. Kids are funny!!!

  6. My 4 and 5 year-olds stole a brand new store bought CARROT CAKE and ate the frosting off it and hid it under my son's bed.
    I thought I must had forgotten the cake at the store since I couldn't find it for desert, a few days later I found the remainings of it under the bed, what a mess!

  8. Never, ever try to figure them out. It's an effort in futility.

    LOL

  10. I love these kind of stories. So funny! It's so nice to have them down on "paper" so you can remember years down the road! :)

  11. They make life so fun. Life would be quite dull without our kids and their funny quirks!

  12. How cute! They all have their different little "things"... I guess Gray is way too young to have remembered Michael Jackson when he was normal, but that's who I was thinking about with the one glove thing! :)

    What little cuties you have!

  13. Are you sure Gray hasn't been watching Michael Jackson?

    Kids are hilarious, aren't they?

  14. OK, I swear I didn't read the comment above mine before I posted about the MJ thing....so much for originality!

  15. My second oldest son went through the glove phase too. I decided he was channeling the OLD Michael Jackson. LOL! He finally grew out of it, but he still has his oddities!

  16. LOL! Cute quirks. I remember my older brother used to hide his candy in a bottle under his bed so he could show off later that he still had his candy. Me, on the other end, would gobble up the sweets being the greedy sweet tooth that I was. Crazy thing is my bro would forget about the candy and I found out where he was hiding it and would sneak some out. haha

  22. Little kids are just so hilariously weird. The whole process of figuring out identity is neat, isn't it?

  29. OMG! That is so cute about Noah. William used to keep a stash of binkies under his crib mattress... my husband and I couldn't figure out where they kept coming from!
    Love the one of Carter... my Alex is just like that too. Mr. Charmer!

  30. She IS the little princess of the bunch. Being the only girl and all. Now I know why he didn't talk to me today. He was too busy with his "lady friend".

  31. I wish I had a good excuse for my secret stash of tootsie rolls.

  32. Carter is the sweetest thing I've ever met so it only makes sense! He and Allison were way too cute holding hands... you better watch out, he's a heart breaker!

  33. I caught them holding hands one time. TOO FUNNY!

  34. Oh my gosh...I am taking a break from the sandy white beaches of Sandestin Florida to check my mail and this is cracking me up....I am paying $5.00 per 10 min., but this is worth every penny...the glove...and Carter's little (girlfriend)...Miss everyone...see you in a few days..

  35. I love the pic! Both of my boys love the one handed glove look. I have to hide the pairs of gloves that I have because eventually, there is always one lonely glove left behind. I attribute this look to them having a mom that loves 80s music.
