Out of the Mouth of Bethany #9

It's been awhile since I've posted one of these. That's not to say Bethany hasn't said anything "blog-worthy." She pretty much does on a daily basis. I just don't always get around to it. But, today's quotes definitely have to be recorded. There was a sweet one and two funny ones. I think I'll start with the funny and end with the sweet!

1) Tonight Bethany was "helping" me clear out/organize a room. Out of the blue she says, "I really like to be annoying." Well, that sure explains a lot!

2) After Bethany was already in bed (and had numerous chances to go potty - none of which she took), she decided she needed to go potty. So she got her spank for not going when I gave her the chance, cried a bit - just enough to make me think that it hurt, but I don't think it really did, and made her way to the potty. As she's sitting there, swinging her legs, waiting to do her business, she looks at me and says very matter of factly, "Mommy. How do you tie a bow?" Through my laughter I told her I'd show her tomorrow but it was time for bed!

3) Today when I picked Bethany up from Mother's Day Out, her teacher stopped me to tell me something Bethany said. There were 5 kids in her class today. At snack time they only had 2 paper plates. Barbara (the teacher) asked the kids what they were going to do since they only had 2 plates and 5 kids. Most of them started saying, "Give one to me," or "I want one!" Barbara suggested that they cut the plates in half. They did so, and passed out the plates. Then Barbara showed them that one little boy, Luke, still didn't have a plate. She asked the kids what they could do. Bethany said, "You can cut MY plate in half and give it to Luke!" After she told me that story, she patted me on the shoulder and said, "You have a great kid." I have to admit, I was a little bit teary-eyed after that. :-)

That's sweet! Those things help you remember that you are doing something right.

What a sweet girl! I'm glad she wanted to half her half of her plate :-) And I'm LOL about the annoying comment. At least she's honest!

I love the annoying comment! What a fun kid!

So sweet. You should be proud of her.

And the annoying comment had me laughing out loud.
