Swear Word!

I was trying to get out of my parents icy lane this afternoon with Talvyn in the backseat. After spinning and spinning, Talvyn asked. " What are you doing?" I replied, "Trying to get up this stupid lane." He then said stupid is a bad word. I said that I was sorry and that I should not have said that. As we neared our home, he reminded me that I had said a bad word earlier. I told him that he could flick my mouth when we got in the house. He told me that he had changed his mind and that he forgave me. Although at the dinner table he brought it up again when he told his dad that mommy said a bad word today. A week later he was talking on the phone with his cousin and told him that his mommy had said a bad word. He even told Heavenly Father in a prayer that his mommy said a bad word. This child just doesn't let anything go.

It's a BOY!

We had our ultrasound yesterday and we are going to have a new little boy. He has everything that he needs. He has a working heart, a regular lip, hands, feet, two nostrils, and a normal spine. Unfortunately the baby doesn't exhibit any enhanced mutant abilities. Oh well, maybe when puberty hits.

Goodbye Nursery; Hello Sunbeams

Talvyn is not in nursery anymore; he is officially a sunbeam. His comment was, "no more nursery." Today in primary they taught the children about the theme for this year which is "I am a child of God". He walked out of church with a little "I am a child of God" medallion, but he just wasn't his happy little self. On the way home from church he was sad that nursery was over and told us, "I hate being a child of God."

As most of us related to Talvyn know...he loves to make up words. Tonight he decided to use a new sentence over and over again. "I'm a dick!" He repeatedly said this sentence over and over again while playing in my egg flour noodle mess. It took Trevor and I a while to realize what our child was actually saying. In disbelief we looked at each other and Trevor asked him what he was saying. He replied, "dick." Trevor asked him what that meant and Talvyn said, "it's a crane." We both started laughing, hopefully Talvyn doesn't come up with anymore harmful words to call himself.
