The purpose of this blog is to capture some of the high lights and low lights of just normal day to day life. Our life is loud, busy, and fast, but we love it!


Goodnight Nimrod

"Goodnight Nimrod."

There's a phrase I never thought you would hear in my house.  Along with:

"Wash yourself Nimrod."

"Get dressed Nimrod."

"Brush your teeth Nimrod."

Bad parenting?  Nope.  Creative and imaginative child.

The girls recently watched Mr. Popper's Penguins.  A Jim Carrey flick that I enjoyed too.  Cute.  Good message.  Down of the 6 penguins was named Nimrod- due in part to him doing things like walking into walls.

Leah especially enjoyed this movie.  She first loved Loudy-I think because she could yell without punishment.  However, Nimrod seems to be her penguin of choice to play make-believe.  I love how her imagination is so big!  She takes on a role and does a voice, actions, and goes so far to tell me that penguins don't wear took a lot of convincing to get her pajamas on after her bath.

Hilarious.  That's Leah.  Three years old and she just gets humor.

I had tucked my little penguin in, went to my room, and from across the house I hear David say, "Goodnight Nimrod" and close her door.  I just about busted a gut laughing.
