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.


"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.
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~
