Kids say the funniest things

I have been meaning to mention these now for a week or so now, and I just keep forgetting. So the other day when I was sitting on the couch talking to Rick and Ashlynn and folding laundry Ashlynn interrupts Rick and I and said "Mom are you having another baby?" I said no why? She said "oh it just looks like you have another baby in your tummy" it was "cute" And then she proceeded to tel me that she wants me to have "lots and lots of babies... A whole house filled with babies!!!" I am so glad that she loves her sister so much. And I am glad that her and Bella get along good.
So here is another conversation that I had with Ashlynn, but first I need to explain. So on this night Bella had been invited over to a friends house for the day. And Ashlynn always feels upset that Bella has so many friends to visit and Ashlynn doesn't. So what I try to do is I try to make sure I plan some sort of special time with Ashlynn while Bella is at her friends, I have found it usually takes the focus off the the negative and gives Ashlynn something positive to focus on. So this particular day I took Ashlynn to Baskin Robins after lunch for an ice cream cone and then at dinner time I took her to Mcdonalds for a happy meal... And I felt I had done good at keeping Ashlynn pre-occupied but then...

It came time to go pick Bella up from her friends house and as usual she was asking why "Bella always get to go play at her friends houses"? I tried to explain it just like I always explain it and I could hear Ashlynn crying quietly in the back of the car... And so I asked Ashlynn whats wrong? And she said "nothings wrong... I am just happy... like other womans that cry when they are just happy"!!! It made me feel so sad for her. :( This is one of those cute things that I will want to remember.





Here are some old pictures of Ashlynn...
The top one is one of my very favorite pictures of her!!!
The second and the third one are from our camping trip last year with the Heiners.

So funny! I totally agree with her. You SHOULD have a whole house full of babies. Get going on that, would you?
