Overheard In Our Backyard Today


Sarah: "Where's Daddy?"


Maddy: "Playing at a baseball game."


Sarah: "Can we watch it on TV?"


Yes, girls, Daddy's an engineer by day and a major-league pitcher by night.








Maddy, upon taking the milk out of the refrigerator:


"Holy Toledo, three-sixty for a gallon of milk? Why don't we just buy a cow?!"


We try not to let our kids worry about money. Clearly we have failed.






Gracie:


"The chickens did poop all over my playhouse AGAIN. Who did put thems chickens in there?"


"Oh. Sorry, God, I did left the door open."


I wasn't aware our 4-year-old was old enough to blame God for her problems. But she did apologize. Also, free range chickens produce some of the same problems as do Free Range Kids: inconvenient pooping places.

Wow, I didn't know EGE played baseball on TV. What a hoot!

I love Gracie's apology to God. That was priceless. I also agree with the free-ranging "stuff" problem... my son free-ranged his potty at the church this past saturday - right on the neighbors fence.
*sigh*
He honestly doesn't do that at home. Not that I've noticed. I mean, I do keep an eye on him...

Umm, at the risk of sounding blonde: Do you seriously have chickens?

LOL, we seriously goof around with a hobby farm. Chickens, rabbits, horses, cats & a goofy dog. All of them inconvenient poopers.

This was just too cute. Sorta makes up for all of the crummy stuff we get dumped on us by our kids~

*sigh*
