"World Peace and Chicken Nuggets"

So i'm sure everyone can think of at least one phrase that they're parents said All the time.....like it's their "famous" saying or something,,,, for example.....when someone left the front door opened my dad would always say "what's wrong with u , were u raised in a barn?".........well,,,,my wonderful husband has a couple of his own when it comes to our kiddos.....when one of the kids complains about what we're having for dinner, david always says, "u know, there's a lot of kids that don't have anything to eat for dinner tonight, and i know they would love to have ur food".......i keep waiting for the day that one of my kids says, "well give it to them"....lol......but that thankfully hasn't happend......lol........the other famous phrase david can always be counted on to say when the kids are fighting, or whining about not getting what they want,,,,"Well, i want world peace,, but we can't always get what we want,".........okay, with all this being said,,, david and emma grace were in the drive thru at mcdonalds last night,,,,,and david ordered a 10 piece chicken nugget meal,,,,,,,as they were driving around the the building,, eg started asking "Dad, why didn't u get a world piece?..... u always say u want a "world peace".....but u always order that 10 piece...why?"..................all i can do is smile even as i type this.......my sweet little emma grace......kids bring so much to our lives......i can't imagine my life without them!

That is so cute. I love how kids come up with some of the funniest things. When my 17-year-old was about 5, he told me one Sunday morning that all the kids were going to sing a song in church. When I asked him what song, he said, "Let's Have a Little Chocolate Jesus." I knew that couldn't be right. But, he was convinced. That night, the children did sing--the song was an old hymn, "Let's Have a Little Talk With Jesus." It's a true story....

God bless you and enjoy your kiddos!! They grown up really, really fast. :0)
