Funny things kids say and the death of a mailbox...........

Our kids say the most hilarious things almost daily. In fact I could do an ENTIRE blog just on the things that come out of their mouths and you would be in in awe and possibly often times frightened at the way their little minds work. Morgan: "wanna play princess?"
Ryanne: "oh yes, can I be a princess too?"
Morgan: "No, I'm the oldest so I am the princess."
Ryanne: "that's not really fair, I want to be a princess like you!"
Morgan: "let me think.............hhhhhmmmmmmm, I've got a great idea!
You can be Porky Pig!"
(we are sitting at a place eating lunch)
Ryanne: "daddy, was I birthed from you?"
Dan: No, daddy's don't "birth" babies Ryanne only Mommy's can do that."
Ryanne: "oohhh, ok so was I birthed from you mommy?"
Me: "no honey, remember we adopted you when you were a baby."
Ryanne: "oohh ya' so who birthed me then?"
Me: "your birth mom."
Ryanne: "whats my birth moms name?"
Me: "Kristen."
Ryanne: "cool ok."
Morgan: "And just for the record I was the one who wanted you!"

I was in the house running around with my head cut off trying to get everyone out of the house on time for swimming when Morgan comes running in;
Morgan: "Mom, the mailbox fell over!!!"
Me: "the what did what!!!???"
Morgan: "ya' the mailbox fell over and oh I might have been swinging from it AGAIN! But if makes you feel any better on the way down it hit me in the head REALLY hard!"
(yes my child in some way that does make me feel better)
So I threw everyone in the car, backed out of the driveway pausing long enough to snap a photo on my cell phone and then sent it to Dan at the fire station with this text attached;
What is it about my children that they swing, climb, hurdle, launch themselves off anything they can find? Is this normal? Well, its Tuesday whats the worst that could happen right? ;)

I hope its normal for them to act like that, because all 3 of mine do that. If not, our kids share abnormalities. Hehee!
