Samantha's Words of Wisdom

I so love talking with Samantha. She is hilarious and has many deep thoughts. Sometimes she just throws information out there. Here are a few that I've been able to write down over the year.

Talking about her preschool class yesterday she told me of a boy in her class that used to sit by her just to annoy her.
Me "So, he sat next to you specifically to annoy you?"
Her "Yes. But then my teacher moved him, because he would always bother me"

Last year while dropping her off at preschool I told her "have a good day"
She turns in response and sighs "If Michael bugs me, I don't think I'm going to have a good day"
"He's always bugging me" (she huffs)

Zach and I pretty much like each other. It's like we're in love

Ice is made out of hardness and water

Black is the color of darkness

Sometimes when Ladies wear sunglasses they do this (she demonstrates putting glasses towards her nose and looking over them) (You had to see this one, it was too funny)

Mom, if I were you I wouldn't have this kind of room. MMM.....I would have a black wall and a purple wall and....a pink bed...ya.

(laughing as she says this one) When I have a bad word to say, mom says she's going to wash my mouth out with soap. (does a comic frown and makes her eyes big after)

(sitting in the hot tub) It's like we're in a big hot bowl of soup.

I'm her mom, and of course I think she is hilarious. But really, she is so fun to talk too. She has lots of expressions, likes to make BIG EYES, and look out the corner of her eyes. I am so lucky I get to spend time with her. Do you ever look at your kids and just feel amazed that they are a part of you...that you helped create them? I'm so grateful I get to be a mother. It is such a blessing.
I'm kinda glad she didn't get to start kindergarten this year. One more year to be with her...my kids are growing too fast. I want to make our time together more meaningful. I want to be a better mom. I need to get down and play more often. I am going to work on that one.
