Just a quick anecdote from Briggs. We are trying to get him to stop sucking his thumb and have tried every tactic in the book - but to no avail. The kid just likes his thumb. So tonight we are giving him the lecture/pep-talk when he interrupt us and says, "OK, OK. End of conversation!"
Excuse me, little 4-year-old!

- the Little Stream

I'm trying to keep up, so I'm just going to post some of the little things that have been going on in the mind of the Robers. They are totally disconnected (the thoughts not our minds).
We went hiking with the kids so we had some time to just talk with the kids. Ashlynn asked if her Papa's job was the National Photographer. We told her no, then explained to her what he did. Brian explained it best when he said,"You know when you look at magazines? Papa is the one who makes sure the reds are red and the blues are blue."
Ashlynn got it, but then Briggs chimed in with ,"Yeh. And once I colored something orange and it wasn't supposed to be orange."
Briggs continues to work on not sucking his thumb at night. He had 3 great nights and was rewarded with a trip to the dollar store after each successful night. However, this morning he came into our room with a wrinkled thumb and a happy, satisfied look on his face.
Ty, as I write is systematically destroying the office and trying to pull the chair out from beneath Briggs because we wont let him have markers. This is why I don't update the blog as much as I used to. Needless to say, Ty will be dressed as a devil this Halloween.
Briggs got a hot wheels cereal box for his birthday. On the back was a contest that if you collect 3 matching trading cards you could win a Ford car. The kids casually asked about this in passing, then forgot about it. Later, I pointed out to them that the box had a coupon for a free Hot Wheels car from Target. I asked them if they wanted to go and get the free car that day. I was met with unexpected zeal from the kids. Then it dawned on me - "You do know that the car is only 2 inches long, right?"
"Oh. Nevermind. I don't want to go" said Ashlynn.
Ashlynn is playing soccer again this year. We will post some pictures soon.

My little sweetheart , Briggs, just announced that when he grows up he wants to marry me. As common as that is for little boys to say, it still tickles me to death! I told him I was already married to Daddy. He said he wished I had waited and not married Daddy. How sweet!
His little friend Harry asked him on the way home how constuction guys tear down walls when they are remodeling homes. Briggs said he thinks they must use their "might".

One of the reasons I love being a mom:
Ashlynn brings home her first grade spelling test. The first word on the test is, "a-s-s"!
