That's just the way it is.

don't take a picture of me
[meant to be a photo of Gray, but camera focused on Ivy.
He was hiding his face from the camera anyway...]

In the car Grayson told me he wants to be a doctor when he grows up. The kind that checks you out, you know, like when Noah has a turn, then Carter, then me? (pediatrician)

Or I could be a girl doctor that takes the blood. (nurse, at last visit I had some blood drawn.)

I'll go to school and the doctor will teach me and then he'll give me his clothes and I'll put them on and then I'll be a doctor!

[snuck one in.]

Somedays I feel like I've just put on big girl clothes, Mom clothes, grown-up clothes. But I'm still just a kid.

  1. Don't you just love kids descriptions. It makes everything that much more exciting!

  2. I often feel the same way. How did I grow up so fast? All 3 of these kids are mine? It's funny how kids put so much stock in a job solely around the "costume", as my kids say it.

  3. Oh my gosh, yes. Sometimes, I just look around me and I have to convince myself that I really am the Mom here. :)

  4. LOL "a girl doctor" Gender job related as already suck in his mind.

    He is so adorable!!!!

    Rebekah (2 1/2) after visiting a friend farm where we milked some cow look at me and said.

    "Mama cow, mama Sarah milk" meaning that I'm a cow because I nurse Sarah LOL

    Kids are so cute!

  5. Gray's anecdotes always make me smile! When my baby brother was much younger (he's 16 last week!) he would say that when he grew up he was going to come live with me, and drive a car to get groceries and watch my kids. He didn't want to get married and have kids of his own, he wanted to drive to the grocery store (that was his most excited part). Now I wish he was still that little.

    Steph, I love how much you keep track of with your kids, these will be great recorded memories down the road. It might even keep you sane through the teen years!

  6. He is so cute! That would be great to have a doctor in the family!

  7. Just wanted to let you know that I REALLY enjoy your blog and that I love all the tips and advice you give throughout, and I appreciate you parenting style. And it absolutely warms my heart to read how much you truely enjoy parenting and taking care of your children. It's inspiring, uplifting, and beautiful.
    All the best!

  8. Oh, I love this! I know how you feel!

  9. What do you mean "sometimes"? I feel like that every-single-day! And then I start thinking about my kids as teenagers or adults and I start to feel dizzy and have to sit down! ;)

  10. You feel that way, too? I often do... :)

  11. I feel this way all the time. How the heck am I in charge?

  12. Glad you clarified the "girl doctor" part. haha!

    I feel like that all the time. Like, who am I with a house, a husband, an FOUR kids? Craziness!

  13. Oh it's so good to know I'm not the only one that thinks that...so good to know.

  14. Totally. totally. And sometimes my clothes don't really even qualify as big girl clothes. :-)

  15. Hee! That cheek of Grayson's is looks sooo squeezable...kissable...what a darling boy!!

  16. Somedays I want to by my kid clothes back on too.

    Most days though...I like this Mommy outfit pretty well. :-)

    He's a doll...I love his shirt.

  17. I feel that way a lot...
    This was so sweet to read :)

  18. That little boy is definitely the ninth cutest thing on earth!!! Just gotta love him!!!

He can then have access to vital information that you access from your computer. Leaving your facebook poker account at risk of been hacked. If you never downloaded any of these programs then you’re probably safe, and if you have then you should run a spyware detection program. The best move will be for get your computer formatted to avoid any loop holes.

    Image Photo Having Exe Embedded In it: This one is hard to catch. This is the latest fashion that is used by hacker, you will be asked to share family photo's.

  20. Oh gosh, I just love how their minds work. Just beautiful!

  21. Shoot, I'm still waiting to get my big girl clothes.

    Your kids are just adorable, even when they're being camera shy.

  22. Oh if only it were that easy (to become a doctor that is!) :) Love him...

  23. Love the first photo-even with Gray hiding in the background. We must show you how to pick your point of focus when taking photos with your fancy camera. I will remind you this weekend.

    And I have been wearing the mom clothes for over 15 years now and some days it feels like they belong to someone else, ya know.

  24. So cute. And funny how the camera is trained to focus on Ivy...old habits die hard. :-)

    My 5yo recently changed his career aspirations from doctor to school bus driver, because "With all that workin', I think I would miss my kids, like Daddy misses me so much." (Which, upon hearing, broke his Daddy's overworked resident heart just a little bit.

  25. I knew I needed a new outfit! Pity I'm not such a fan of going shopping, even for a superhero outfit (that's what I want to be when I grow up!)

    Hope you have a fantastic weekend!

  26. I totally get that. TOTALLY!

    And I love that first shot. It's so dramatic.

  27. Somedays I feel like I've just put on big girl clothes, Mom clothes, grown-up clothes. But I'm still just a kid. Yes -- this! There are days where I just wonder how on Earth anyone thought it was a good idea to give me all this responsibility...I still feel like a kid myself most days!

    I love your son's descriptions of being a doctor. I used to teach preschoolers, and loved hearing what they wanted to be when they grew up.

  28. I just love the minds of kids. I cant wait until my little one starts talking...

  29. If that's all it takes them I want to be a doctor too!

  30. Hey there! you got yourself an award on my blog!!! :D

  31. I feel like a kid half the time too...even in my "girl doctor" clothes. (:

  32. This is way too cute. I love the way children think about things. You have one smart boy!!

  33. He is so smart and cute. Too Funny!

    p.s. my baby's name is Gracen.


Your comment is gonna totally make my day!
