“If a child is to keep alive his inborn sense of wonder without any such gift from the fairies, he needs the companionship of at least one adult who can share it, rediscovering with him the joy, excitement and mystery of the world we live in." - Rachel Carson

Things I Never Thought I'd Say

This is the grown-up version of my Rowan's Ramblings page. I consistently find myself saying really strange things as a parent that I never thought would come out of my mouth...but then again, kids do really weird things that necessitate us saying this random stuff.

  • "Yes, you can wash your bouncy ball anytime you like."
  • "We don't mop the Christmas tree."
  • "Angry cat noises and clawing will only lead to time outs."
  • "Sorry, but you aren't allowed to marry your sister. No church or court will allow you to do that." Rowan, "Then I'll marry her in our backyard and you can't stop me! It is my choice who I marry!"
  • "Sorry, but you aren't allowed to marry me or your dad."
  • "We don't stick our fingers in chickens butts!"
  • "Stop rubbing your cheese on the kitty!"
  • "Don't lick your calculator."
  • "It's not okay for sisters to touch tongues."
