Elizabeth runs to John Paul to give him an enormous and adorable hug

Me:  Aw John Paul, she loves you so much!
JP:  Elizabeth and I are getting married!!! 
Elizabeth crawls away
JP:  Oh, she crawls when she gets married...

The runaway bride


Cecilia, in the bathroom:  Mom, my booty's wet!
Me:  Why is your booty wet?
Cecilia:  Um, because I wanted to surprise you!
Me:  A good way to surprise me is not by dipping your booty in the potty.  Maybe just hug me and say, "Hey Mom, I love you!"
Cecilia:  Or pwetend da floor is made of ice!

Also a way to surprise me...


Cecilia:  John Paul, can we pway Aladdin next?
Cecilia:  Um, next time can we pway Aladdin?
John Paul:  NO!  We'll play OLD TESTAMENT next!

Totally normal, I promise...

"I'm walking on water!!!"  No God complex here or anything...

JP:  I look like Elizabeth!
Andrew:  Not really...  How do you look like Elizabeth?
JP:  Because I have a head.
Andrew:  Lots of people have heads...  Cecilia has a head, Mary Claire has a head...
JP, amazed:  YOU have a head!!!


Cecilia, coming in while I'm nursing Mary Claire:  Oh, hi kitty!
John Paul:  She's not kitty!  We're playing Old Testament, and she's Judith!
Cecilia:  She's not Judas!  Dad is Judas!
John Paul:  No, JuDITH!
Cecilia:  No, KITTY!
Me:  No, Cecilia, he's saying Judittttthhhh, not Judas.
Cecilia:  Oh!  Hi Judif!


Cecilia:  And who am I in the Old Testament?
John Paul:  Oh, you're Ruth.  And Elizabeth is Esther. And Dad is Malachi.  Mom is Moses's mom and I'm Isaiah!!!
Aunt Sister:  Why don't we choose names where we're all in the same story?  So we could play...  Pentateuch!
Cecilia:  And I'm Roof!
John Paul:  NO!  We're playing Pentateuch!  Ruth is a Historical Book!!!

She got told.
Judith and Esther, bffs

John Paul, to Mary Claire:  Hi, King Herod!
Mary Claire:  blank stare
John Paul:  Baby Herod, I'm Baby Jesus!
Mary Claire:
John Paul:  Baby Herod, you're so sweet!
Mary Claire:
John Paul:  I'm gazing at Baby Herod, and Baby Herod is gazing at me!


It's a little-known fact that Herod was, in fact, a midget in rainbow baby legs.

  1. I have no doubt that both our John Pauls put me to shame when it comes to Old Testament knowledge!

    1. I think John Paul catechizes me more than anyone else ever has!

  2. Oh my gosh...John Paul and Cecilia are too funny together!

    1. They crack me up :) Thank goodness she's such a little peacemaker, or their conflicts would get a LOT more heated!

  3. ::helpless tears of laughter:: Ohmygoodness, those children are ridiculous!!!

  4. Wow - John Paul is with the Old Testament what my son is with dinosaurs....maybe we need to start reading to him from the Bible more!
