Simon Says

24 May 2012

"I'm just summerizing the other four dollar swimming pool that you bought last summer."


About every other day when he says something that might warrant a PG-13 rating Simon instantly says, "do NOT put that on the blog."

As he walked into the bathroom with Julia at his heels the other night, Simon said, "while your little brain is developing you should probably go ahead and give me some privacy."

After lots of failed attempts to get a dinnertime-nap-happy Sebastian to bed too late at night, Simon said, "are you going to join Julia in the the ranks of life ruiners?!"

While I was taking pictures of the kids doing nothing (like always) outside in the driveway last night, Simon said, "the neighbors probably walk by and say, 'there are those weirdos with their kids and their camera - again.'"

While looking at Sebastian recently he told him, "don't worry buddy, you'll grow into your facial features."



**to achieve Julia's chic look -- layer one regular diaper under a pair of shorts and top off with a swim diaper -- bada boom.

  2. "those weirdos with their kids and their camera" ...hahahahaha That killed me. I agree with Jdel, more videos of Julio to entertain the masses! Oh, and you can tell her that I tried out the layered swim diaper look, and I love it. Extra support for my maternity bottoms and so forth.

  3. Riley's latest trick is to make a beeline down our street at least 2 times a day. The neighbors have us pegged as well. :)

  4. Did the diaper trick work? Swim diapers are such a joke.

  5. I marvel at your ability to simultaneously drip in sarcasm and highlight your love for your kids. I don't feel I could get away with describing how much my children are driving me mad with their incessant fighting-whaling-whining-snot-dripping-crying in stereo (five speakers) without sounding like the most horrible of mothers.

    1. Sorry to imply they are whalers. I meant to say they are of the wailing variety. I assure you we don't come into contact with any whales (or harpoons)in the Midwest...

  7. Can I recommend cloth swim diapers? Try Imse Vimse's - if you're using two disposables the cost will be equalized really fast. Obviously if you leave them sitting with poop in the water it will dissolve and start running out the corners of any diaper, but the cloth swim diapers will definitely contain it long enough for you to take the offender out of the water and change him/her. Also they have snaps on one side so you don't have to pull a soiled diaper down.

  8. I know about 4 grandparents and 4 great grandparents that would contribute a few bucks for a higher quality swimming pool!

  9. First time visitor here... absolutely love your blog! My first two children were 14 months apart, so reading your blog is reminding of a time in our family that was just as fun... and hectic...

    Anyway, God bless!

  10. Finally got my husband to read one of your simon says posts and he responded with the enthusiastic "Ha! I think I like that guy." Which is high praise indeed considering the source!

  12. Haha! On our trip last week Chris said "I'm so glad we left the kids home so I could go on vacation with you and your camera." Oh we'll, he'll get over it.

  13. Bahaha! Mike is having issues with Ellen loving his nipples lately. She won't stop touching and grabbing them. He is super uncomfortable with this. I, on the other hand, could not be more amused. 10 months of breastfeeding payback.
