"Mommy! Please please pleeeeease! Pretty pleeeease!" "Teagan, that is begging. Begging doesn't work with me." "I'm not begging!" "What's begging?" *** A conversation she had with my mom after church last Sunday as she was being buckled into her carseat:

"Oh no! I forgot to pray!"

"That's ok! You can pray anytime! Just fold your hands and bow your head and talk to God!" "No! I have to have a microphone! A real one! With power!"


We write down prayer requests at church and put them in the bag at offering time. Teagan's never talked about them before but has watched me when I write. This week... "Mom. I want to write a prayer. You write what I say. 'God. I love you.' That's all."


Walking through Target, Teagan in the cart, wearing a coat.

"T, do you want to take your coat off?"

"No thank you, Mommy."

"Well, you can if you want to- if you get warm or something."

"It's ok Mommy. I like suffering."

CLASSIC! I love your Teaganism's. Wait until Zach starts with them - some of our HUGEST laughs have been at Hayden's expense.

Oh, don't you let her forget that last one! Miss Chef and I still use quotes like that from my nephews--I used one in front of my SIL, and she had completely forgotten he used to say that. I even taught my coworker a phrase my cousin's kid used to say...the kid who's now a junior in HS. Good kidisms are Forever.

Yeah, good job archiving these!

An ON mic is necessary for prayer. Tammy Faye would be so proud ;-0. Ah, the whimsicalities. She is fun.

I just love what kids this age say. Ages 3-4 seem to be when they come up with the best stuff. One of my favorite posts on this subject was this one:

If you want.

That's a hoot! "I like suffering" Don't you wish you could just follow them around with a tape recorder?
