Words of Wisdom from Ollie

Wow. Am I in a blogging funk. I really have no desire to blog....but I'm getting tired of seeing that last post that I put up 3 weeks ago...there's been much going on...but not enough time to really sit down and post.

So I'll share a few tidbits of random advice and quotes from Ollie.

*The other day, I put on a pink necklace, and Ollie said, "Wow mom, you look like a princess!"

*His new comment is "Sure enough!" As in, "Ollie, did you sleep well last night?" "Yep, sure enough!"

*He also likes to use the phrase "at one point" as in, "Mom, I saw that in my room at one point".

*He loves to share what he did all day when Joel comes home. It usually sounds like this:
"Dad, today I fertilized, I mowed, I climbed up the dam, I worked in the shop, and, ummm, I rode the polaris (pronounced 'baplaris')". Such a busy boy.

*He often comments on my suggestions with "Oh, that's a good idea" or "here mom, you should try this".

*The other night, I was explaining to his babysitter how the evening would go. I told him, "Ollie, if Emily has questions--you can help her, right?" He responded, "Yep. I'll do that exactly!"

Such a funny boy. I'm trying to write these things down in a family journal I've started--although I can't seem to find time to write as often as I'd like. But I'm trying. Some is better than none, right??

Since Ollie has been at our house some this fall, I too have been intrigued by his comments. Usually, I chuckle once or twice when he's here. a) "Sarah, does Marc like 'Frosted Mini Spooners?'" (I love how he knows the generic name). b) "Sarah, I'm going camping with mommy and daddy and Joel and Jess." c) "Look Sarah -- I have a 'dullbozer' on my shirt." d) "Sarah -- Can I have a snack?" (as he's eating his breakfast) Oh Ollie -- he cracks me up.

Don't forget about the twins, Kathy and Gabby - I was thinking about that today, and cracked up a few times!
