I have three little ones, so I am used to hearing them try to tell me what they want, what to do, and how to (or not to) do things. This is a funny exchange we had the other day. Mind you, they haven't watched Blue's Clues for quite some time. We were playing "I spy with my little eye", and it was Joshua's turn. He spied something pink, but after guessing what I thought was every pink thing in the room, I said:
Mom: I don't see anything else pink, dude. Tell me, I give up.
Jessica: No, Mom. Don't give up. Remember, Blue's Clues says "Don't give up, just move on."
It is a line out of a song off of Blues Clues that she hasn't watched in a long time. The funniest thing was that she was soooo serious about it. I just laughed! Nothing like getting advice from your four year old that she got from a TV show! :)

For those of you with the same taste in books as me, I was thrilled when I went to the movies last night and saw that they made a movie for the City of Ember book. The book is in a set of three (City of Ember, People of Sparks, and Prophet of Yonwood). I can't believe I didn't put this on my favorite books list yet; I loved the first two books but the third was a little weird for me. It has a really unique story; I told Joe we must see it! It comes out October 10th. I just hope that the movie stays true to the book...

I almost forgot! Last night I had a pajama party with the kids...so fun! It started out that I just wanted to get the kids ready for bed when I noticed it was still a little early. So in order to get them to put their p.j.'s on I told them we were going to have a pajama party. They were elated! They saw a Max and Ruby episode a while ago where they had a pajama party, so I knew just what they wanted...dancing. So we all put our pj's on and blasted bouncy Strawberry Shortcake soundtrack music from our DVD player with the surround sound on, of course. They loved it! I can't say that enough, and I had a lot of fun too. I can't tell you how long it has been that I have felt so carefree dancing with them and swinging them around. It was a beautiful moment that I hope to remember and thought I would share. Afterwards we played a quick game, read and prayed, and off to bed. Jessica was a little wound up and had a hard time going to bed, but the boys just crashed!
