The Mind of a 4-Year-Old

This was just way too funny not to share!  I’m so sorry if you find this in the TMI category.

So for Christmas AJ and Ry got these hot wheels that change colors with cold water.  Well, after trying really, really cold water over and over again without changing colors, Ryan suggested that we try warm water.  Hmm, there’s an idea… it worked!   They get a bowl of warm water and a bowl of cold water and they come up with new designs on their color changing cars.  They love it and could do it everyday:) 

Tonight AJ’s doing the pee pee dance, if you have a preschooler, you’ve seen it.  I tell him to go to the bathroom.  But before he goes, he asks, “Is pee pee warm?”  (Do you see where he’s going with this?)  I’m thinking uh-oh.  I reply, “No, AJ, you cannot pee on your color changing car.”  ….You’ve gotta love the mind of a 4-year-old!

We were going to have family pictures in the *beautiful* fall weather, but instead we had our first snow:

Chris has been watching his Dodgers play in the playoffs.    They just swept the St. Louis Cardinals.  Here is the picture story of Game 3:

Ryan & AJ had their first sleep over with their friend, Mason:

The Greens Triumph over the Rocky Mountains (well sort of)

We did it!  We went camping!  This time we actually ate dinner and slept in a tent (well sort of).  So we were in a tent, but didn’t sleep much.  

We had hot dogs and of course s’mores!  The boys had such a good time exploring with their cousins-The Texas Greens!   Although one of the boys was falling every 15 minutes.  My poor nephew, Tyler, fell and ate a mouth full of dirt.  He even got some war wounds out of it.  But they were tough (well sort of). 

It was a great evening of putting up the tent, moving the tent, bear proofing everything-yeah, there have been bears up there.  Golden Gate State Park, by the way, BEAUTIFUL!  I’ve decided Chris and I ROCK at the whole setting up and taking down part.  Seriously!  We could have our scouts badge already, but some people think there’s more to camping than the set up part.  🙂 

So after we had dinner, the kids played, Misty and I took the boys exploring…and then it was time to put baby Carson down.  I fed him and layered him up and put him in the pack ‘n play.  He took awhile to settle down, but finally fell asleep.  Yes!  The night is off to a great start (well sort of).

About 30 minutes later after Carson went down.  Ryan found a huge bug on Carson’s side of the tent.  I did not scream or anything!  golden gate camping-212And I am telling you this picture does not do it justice, it was a very large bug.  So Ryan’s way of protecting baby Carson and dealing with the bug was to throw, hurl rather, the ball at the tent, which then started a chain reaction-a bad chain reaction.  Carson was startled awake and this made him raging mad.  One thing about my sweet boy is that he can be a bit of a screamer when he is mad or tired. 

We tried to get him to go back down, but that just wasn’t happening.  We got him up with us and so began the night of no sleep.  He nursed and slept on me while I watched the moon travel from one end of the tent to the other.  At the beginning of the night, I snuggled in my new sleeping bag (that would later twist and not zip because I was holding my sweet Carson) and laid comfortably on the surprisingly cozy air mattress (that would be completely deflated sometime later that night) and thought, “This is going to be the best night of no sleep-ever.”   It was wonderful holding that sweet little baby that is crawling everywhere now and will rarely snuggle with me.   Little did I know he would be waking up ever 1-2 hours screaming inconsolably-that part not so pleasant. 

None of us really slept except the boys.  All but poor Tyler, he got altitude sickness and was up most of the night being miserable.  Which later a friend read a story about a baby who had the same camping experience as Carson and they found out it was altitude sickness.  Poor babies! 

I will still say we were victorious!

The older boys and I got to experience something truly amazing on Wednesday! 

I finally decided to tackle the remnants of my garage sale.  I started with a vest of Ryan’s that had been there-oh, since our camping trip, err camping disaster.  🙂  I tossed it in the keep pile and found that I had put my hand in some brown goo.  Gross!  What was that?  Then I saw a butterfly.  What did I think?  Photo op!  I ran inside to grab my camera, which lately feels more like a new appendage.  But I’m loving it!  I did wash my hands really quick because, what was that? 

When I got back outside I showed the kids and they were so excited! 

Then we noticed that this poor little guy seemed sick.  His wings were very weak. 

Then I thought that maybe he was brand new.  Remember the goo?  I looked at Ry’s vest again and sure enough-this is what I found!

I looked online and found that it can take as little as an hour for a butterfly’s wings to dry.  How amazing is it that we got to experience this?!  God is so good!

We’ve had quite the exciting week around the Green household!  It began Tuesday when I found out that AJ20090620-IMG_6287 had taught himself to swing.  As long as the swing isn’t too high, he can get on by himself and swing ’til the cows come home.

Then we have Ryan’s 1st Tball game on Friday!  That was a BLAST!  Ryan smacked one right up the middle and got an RBI.  Really every player gets an RBI, but the excitement is still intense!  It was surreal watching my “baby” play Tball.  Where has 5 years gone?20090619-IMG_607420090619-IMG_6086

Things I hear on any given day…

“Do you see that big tornado with dust and debris?

“This is Rocky Canyon, there is an avalanche making fire in the mountains!  Copy that.”

“AJ, let’s color together.”

“He’s (Carson) so happy, Mama!”

“I made it just for my brother.”

“My baby is so cute!”

“Mama!  Come see what I built!  I’m good at building.”

“Oh no!  I see a tornado touching down in the east!”

“Good team work!”

“You’re right, Ryan, you’re right!”

“Yummy, yummy gummy worms!” (peas-I know, I don’t get it either.)

“So how is your day, Mama?”

While listening to Klove:  “Hey!  That’s psalm 106!”  (No kidding!  That came out of my 3-yr mouth!)

“Did you know water makes me happy?”  (Again my 3-yr old!)

“Did you know milk makes me silly?” (Guess who?) 

“Mama, is that cool or what?”

“What do you want to be when you grow up, Mama” 

To which I’d have to reply, “A Mama!” 
…love being a mom!

Well, it’s gone today, but wow! while it lasted we sure enjoyed it!  We checked out a new park near our neighborhood.  It’s not one we can walk to, but it’s on our way home from the grocery store!  The boys played on the playground and then we went on a walk to…well as AJ would put it (because he hears Mommy say it so often these days) “because Carson needs to come out.”  ☺
