My mom told me that I should make sure I write down the funny things my kids say in detail, so I will always remember it.
She sometimes runs across a hint on a sheet of paper that was supposed to remind her of the funny thing one of us said and she just can't remember it, so I have a small hard covered notebook that my mother-in-law gave me from the Big Kids' baby shower that I write down the funny things my kids say.
I will admit, they are not quite as funny reading them as it was experiencing them, but I am thankful to have the memories saved anyway and now that it is on my blog, I won't have to worry if I ever lose the notebook.
Here are a few of the funny things my kids have said in their five years of life.
Monkey age 1 - "I made puppies (poopies). I stink."
Monkey almost 2 - When Daddy gets mad, because someone ripped a book's page, she says, "A cat did it."
