Dinner Funnies

Tonight at dinner we were having a chicken noodle with vegetables medley meal (long title, I know). As usual, Cooper was the last to leave the table.

He kept asking, "How many bites do I have to take?"

Dad's response..."Until I say you have had enough to eat."

Cooper's response after several bites..."OOO, I don't like it."

Dad's response..."Every time you say you don't like it you will take one more bite. We need to be grateful for Mommy who made it and God who provided it for us."

Cooper's response after every bite..."OOOOOOOO" (still taking extra bites)

Cooper got wise after several bites.

He had one in his mouth, looked at Chris with that "I don't like it" face looking like he was going to say the usual "OOOO".

He rolled his eyes.

Made a funny face.

Cooper's response..."MMMMM?" with a rather disgusted look on his face.

He is so funny. Chris and I just DIED laughing. If you could have only seen it.

Things have been so busy since we started school. Once our day gets started there is no stopping until everyone is in bed including myself. I never dreamed it would be this time consuming but it is worth it. The kids are enjoying it and are learning alot already.

Even though it has been so much more overwhelming than I thought I am enjoying it as well.

I'm right with ya on the all day part. Doing 2nd grade and K and pre-K, and then laundry and cooking supper it seems like I am just worn out by bedtime. But I also agree that it is SO worth it!

Don't know how you do it! I'm barely keeping up and not even trying to homeschool. Whew!
I keep telling myself that we'll be rested in heaven. I'm not sure we will be until then, though!
Happy Wednesday!
