Overheard in my house this morning....

My kids are playing a game Sarah likes to call "babies" right now and it makes my heart sing. They are really starting to enjoy each others company.

And the more the play together and keep themselves happily occupied, the less I have to hear, "What can I do now? I'm so bored."

However, playing babies means that they have taken every baby doll, every doll related item, and every piece of plastic food they could get their hands on from the playroom and hauled it upstairs.

After hauling it all up the steps, they strategically placed each item throughout the rooms upstairs.

On their fifth trip down for more things to bring up, I heard the following exchange:

Sarah: "Peter you stay upstairs and take care of the babies."

Peter: (hot on Sarah's heels and holding a magic wand) "Nah. I just used this magic wand to make a person to stay upstairs to watch them for me."

Now if only he would use that magic wand to make a person to clean up the mess and to do the laundry, we'd be good to go!

****Don't forget to check out my giveaway. Leave a comment by 2:00PM EST on Sunday to be qualified!****

That's funny!! If you get that wand to working how you want, can you pass it this way? I promise to pass it on to whoever needs it next!!

Angelique said...

I'm next!

Love it - I love hearing the cute things kiddos say :)

Mari said...

That is funny. Can I have the wand when you are done with it?

My daughter does the same thing, only she drags every last doll and all of their junk down the stairs instead of up, and she plays with her imaginary siblings instead of a real one. I would love that magic wand, too!

Brittany said...

ha ha ha ha That is SO hilarious!

Jennifer said...

Mama Zen said...

And, lower gas prices! Don't forget to use the wand to lower gas prices!

Do you have a magic babysitter wand? I could use one of those around here.

Lisa said...

I'd love one of those magic wands too!!!

LOL- I so understand. Yesterday the girls brought out two plastic tubs we use as toy boxes. They had emptied the tubs out so they could use them as baby beds. I sighed heavy with the thought of all their toys now on the floor. Later when I walked by their room, it was difficult to see the carpet.

I'm always lugging Thomas and trains up and down the steps; I wish we had a magic "train" to help clean up too LOL!

Kellie said...

He's a smart one! I wouldn't want to be upstairs by myself with all those babies either! ;)

beth said...

Yet another reason he will make the perfect husband!

I missed the giveaway. Boo. :(

But seriously, I want one of those wands! I would make my gas tank so it's always full. :) And also I would never do laundry again. Hooray!

Is there a wand that makes the first day of school come faster?

Claudious said...

I would pay real money for a magic wand like that.

Carol said...

Mine have just started playing football together for long periods of time in the garden. Which means I don't have to play unless I want to.

Bliss!

Jaina said...

Aww, too sweet! Can I borrow his wand? Or could he maybe use his wand to create one for me? Maybe?
