Becks: I’m a male
SP: I’m a female
Berkley: I’m an ani-mo (animal)
Becks: Can I bring my snack downstairs?
Brian: I don’t see why not.
Becks: Well, you are the ruler, so either I can or I can’t.
Brian somehow became the “crown maker”–he did a great job!
We heard a thump one evening after kids were in bed. Berkley’s “thumps” aren’t that loud when she falls out of bed, SP has never in her life fallen out of bed, so Brian went to Beckham’s room. He finds him on the floor, sitting up.
Brian: Did you fall out of bed?
Brian: What happened?
Becks: I just fell out of bed.
(Little Dude did not remember this at all in the morning!)
“Her lights off.” – Berkley referring to her baby doll’s eyes closing.
“Dad your thumb toe is bigger than our thumb toe.” -Sadie Piper
Andria to Berkley: I love you
Berkley: I love you (this was HUGE cause she always responds with ” I love me!”
Brian to Berkley (hoping for this same sweet response): I love you
Berkley: Thank you
SP: Mom, I need to get a spanking spoon…Not to spank myself, but to get my pillow out. (from behind her bed)
I assume Berkley didn’t fall right asleep this night…
Stopped by the liquor store on our way to the grocery store to get a picture of our Becks with this sign!
Why do people say we shelter our kids too much??
On our drive to Texas, we go past the prison in Huntsville.
We were showing Becks and telling him what the towers and barbed wire were for. He asks: “Dad, is that the prison you were in?”
(We didn’t know Beckham knew this story! This is a good one to ask Brian about, it involves an unpaid speeding ticket and a trip to the Houston jail. Which, for the record, we drove by later in our trip! We clarified that THIS is the jail dad was in! 🙂 )
When we hear firetrucks or ambulances, we like to stop and pray for the people involved in whatever is happening (safety, peace, ultimately that this seemingly rough situation will be used to turn hearts to Christ). Sadie Piper is always the first to say, “we need to pray!!” when she hears a siren. Here was her prayer one day. We put it through Google translator to help you understand better.
