Hilarious Bedtime Babblings. . .

Last night, my children had me in stitches!!!

So, I was brushing my girls' hair before bedtime and my 7 year old daughter came up to me and said, "Mom, why did the Israelites have to fight the Philippines--wait a minute, uhm, the Philistines?" LOL!!

After a brief discussion about the consequences a nation faces when they make a mockery of God and His people, the conversation then turned to hawks. (Yes, hawks--don't ask me how!) My 5 year old daughter was trying to figure out if hawks were nocturnal animals. We talked about what nocturnal meant and my thoughts on the matter, although I wasn't completely sure.

My 5 year old said, "Mommy, I think you and Daddy are nocturnal!! Every time we go to bed, you guys are still awake!" LOL

At about this time, my 3 year old comes running from his room calling "Mommy, Mommy!" He had been in bed for about 15 minutes or so. I'm like, "what is it, son?" He said, "Mommy, you closed my door. Now, it's dark in my room and now, I can't see my eyes!!!!" LOL!!!!!!!!!!
(Never mind that he's been going to bed with his door closed for a long time now.)

So, we got him all set up with a night-light which was fine. . . until the night-light cast shadows he was unfamiliar with and then he thought, forget it! Let's go back to the darkness!

Oh, my kids are such a blessing and such sweet comic relief!

  1. Those are all so cute. Made me chuckle! I am nocturnal too. ;-)

  2. Oh, thanks Jen!

    I am trying not to be so nocturnal myself! :o)

  3. Stacie,

    This sounds funny.
    Theses are moments you’ll treasure for ever. I started a journal when I first got pregnant and over the years in addition to recording events and special moments I also recorded the funny things my daughter said - things like you experienced tonight. On her thirteenth birthday I gave her a copy of the journal. She loved looking back at her life. You have more children and that may be a bit much but maybe you could at least jot down those funny moments like the Philippines, and your son not being able to see his eyes - then again these probably aren;t things your forget any time soon.

    Have a great weekend!


  4. Nocturnal can be good! Such a lovely time of life when all your children are in hands reach. Enjoy it all. Thanks for sharing!

  5. Hi Debbie,

    That is so sweet, what you did for your daughter!!! Oh my, that is a precious gift for her. And a good idea, too.
    These are truly moments that I treasure and hold dear to my heart.

  6. Hey Mom!
    I'm trying to be less nocturnal these days. :o) You know the face she had when she said it too! It was that serious, frown, eyes up to the ceiling face, complete with the finger on the side of the chin!

    Yes, I do enjoy!

  7. Hi Stacie,

  8. Hey Mrs. Gertha!

    Yes, children can be so funny and not even on purpose!

    You are welcome, as you are an encouragement to me. Take care, sister.

  9. Kids are so cute. I keep a journal of the cute sayings of my kids & every once in awhile I like to get it out & read through them.

  10. Hi Lisa,

    I like the idea of keeping a journal of the things they say. These times are so sweet!

    Take care,
