Lit-tle girls lit-tle girls, everywhere I look I can see them...

Mia sat down next to Zach during lunch, "I'll sit by you, Daddy, because boys need a girl to be by them."

"Hey, Mim- will you help me wipe the kitchen table?"
"Suhtenwee." (Her three-year-old attempt at "certainly")

"Will you help me clean the living room?"
"Asowootely not."

Playing with my hair: "Mom- can I look for your bwain?" Shoves her face into my hair. "I don't see it."

Anya? She just wants to be held. Especially when I say, "Time to go night-night!" Doesn't mind going to bed, as long as she doesn't have to climb the stairs to get there. All 34 pounds of her. Getting too old for this... (I'll let you decide who I mean by that.)

Do you guys want a banana? Bree lights up, "Naaanaaa! NANA! Naaaaannnnnaaaahhhh" practically drooling as she bounces up and down. I peel it and hand it to her. A teeny whiny high-pitched "Nao!" She shakes her head at me, drops it on the floor and walks away.

Miles shakes his head no to everything. Even if it means yes.

Chip used to have a poster in College that basically sums up life:

A man without a woman, is like a fish without a bicycle.

A man does need a girl to sit by him.

Ahhh if only we could use those squished bananas for bread or something. Too bad it's always dropped OUT of the peel onto a crummy dirty floor. I've tried getting smaller bananas just for that very reason. Tired of the waste when they change their mind!

I'm totally feelin' your pain about carrying the little ones. As if LIFTING THEM wasn't enough to herniate yet another disc....but carrying them and up stairs? The back is a goner.

Love it! :-) I think girls are so awesome.

Well, my little boy's pretty awesome too, but... you know what I mean!

(Love the new blog design! You are sooooo talented.)

Bode is finally learning that shaking your head "no" means "no" and shaking your head "yes" means "yes"...it is a whole new world at the Richards home.

I love the first quote...what would men do without us???
