While Mom was pulling out the lawn furniture I was taking my troop out on a much needed (nap-hookie) walk. We had gone quite a ways and I asked the girls how their legs were doing. “Are they tired?” I asked. Lina (3), from the right side of the stroller said “mine just keep bumpin’ along”, and Daphne (2) said “I could take my pants off.”

Nap-hookie walks are the best kind. There’s nothing like the occasional freedom of being out at 2pm. Those babies of you made me laugh out loud, and I’m usually the silent laughing type.
I laughed so hard, Rachel! How funny. What clever and delightful girls you have! Keep bumbin’ alone!
I meant ALONG, not alone! :0)
Excuse the ignorance, but what does ‘nap-hookie’ mean?
Franci, they were “playing hooky” by getting to skip out of their naps.
The quotes are so funny . . . especially for a two and three year old!
This is absolutely hysterical! My husband and I have laughed and laughed. We love the cute things little ones say. 🙂
I had to take one of our twin girls (age 4) to the ER last night for respiratory problems. She’s been there frequently throught her little life and knew where we were. As I carried her into the hospital, she said casually, “It’s a good thing I’m not sick”.
Thanks for sharing – you’ll be so glad some day that you have that one written down. 😉
That is too cute. I hope she was o.k. I absolutely hate the E.R. for little kids – it is so difficult to keep them from being scared. It’s sounds to me like you have that part all figured out!
She’s better. Thank you. She had her right lung removed when she was 6 days old, so we’ve made friends with most of the hospital staff, who give her excellent care. God has been so good to provide for her through their wisdom and expertise. And she’s tiny, but tough! Truly a living testimony to His grace and mercy.
I’m thinking your Lina’s comment about bumpin’ along could easily become a family running response. (We have alot of those in our family.)
When my husband called from work to check on us today, I told him we were “just bumpin’ along”. 🙂
