Slide show of painting our treat bags for Easter.

The Voices of children are my topic for this blog. After all, kids say the darndest things. For example, a recent conversation starter went like this……But please remember we live in a rural farming community and parents hunt here…..among other things 🙂

Pretend you find a rabbit eating you carrots. What could you do to keep the rabbit out of your garden?

Desmond (age 3): I would just take his head off! Then he couldn’t see where he was going anymore.

Weston (age 3): I would carry him and hold his ears and put him in the bunny trap so he could go Night Night.

Gracie (age 5): I would actually hold his ears and put him in his cage and feed him carrots for the rest of his life.

Dexter (age 4): I would do this…….”shoo, shoo, shoo!” and tell him to go away!

Lou (age 5): I would, hmmmmm…….keep it and give it a carrot!

Macoy (age 2): A Cat 🙂  (he’s gonna be the REal gardener someday)

Ben (age 2): Good!  (we don’t quite know if he liked Macoy’s comment or the idea of Eating the carrots lol)

So, bloggers, family and friends. I figured out long ago I am not the book writer. But who says I can’t create some for the future?! At least that’s my plan.

I’m participating in the A to Z Blog Challenge 2014. Check out some of the other bloggers at this link.



  1. Did my heart good to see that well used water color kit being used by young artists! If I could go back in time, I would have recorded all those wonderful quotes from my own children and my students in the class – priceless! So glad you were able to writed their voices down in your blog!


  2. That’s a moving post – so funny to read the comments from your kids:-) Thanks for popping by my blog, and I am happy to discover yours:-) Will be back for more.
