Overheard On My Stairs Today:

Jonas [downstairs, out of sight]: OH, freakin’ sakes!

Me [midway up the upper level stairs]: What’s wrong?

Jonas [emerging on landing at front-door-level]: You o’moe got something! My digger truck!

Me: I didn’t almost forget it. I put it in the playgroup bag before we packed up.

Jonas [joining me in hallway at top of stairs]: OH, thank you, Mommy. You’re a gen’us.

🙂 (And yes, I do think it’s hilarious and slightly embarrassing that my 3 year old yells “Freakin’ Sakes!” It’s his new favorite phrase – I think he heard me say it once and it just really stuck. I’m just counting my lucky stars that he didn’t overhear something worse slip out — and yes, that means I just admitted that I sometimes have a pottymouth. I’m human, I make mistakes, what can I say?)

  1. ha ha ha! So funny. I can totally relate, and our home is the home of two pastors. ha ha! Not long ago, Elisa was walking upstairs, and she screamed out, “Jesus Christ!” I gasped. “Elisa, where did you hear that?” I demanded. “At church.” She said. ha ha ha!

  2. I love it! The other day Zion walked up and said, “fiddle dee dee”. You can tell what my “favorite” expression of disgust is! He hears it often, so of course he has started repeating it.

“For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— not by works, so that no one can boast.”

Ephesians 2:8-9
