The Things They Said and Did

It’s Thursday, so I went back to 2009 and looked at some of the posts from November and December. Here are some gems inspired by the Kraus Kids.


Maizie wet her My Little Pony’s tail and mane because she wants “A rock star pony”

Teddy pooped in the upstairs toilet today. Teddy (age 3) requires assistance with the clean up aspect of using the can. Teddy did not call for said assistance after going this morning. Teddy left his pants on the floor of the bathroom and came down the stairs on his butt. This left the dog wondering why Teddy isn’t… in trouble. Daddy is hitting the stairs with the carpet cleaner and a poor attitude.

He dressed himself...t least he has pants on

Maizie will say a swear phrase and the only word she says correctly is the swear, Stella got out of her crib at naptime and locked her door and Teddy will leave the room and return with no pants on what so ever.

Stella continues to think she’s Tawny Kitaen in a Whitesnake video.

Stella had on a sour puss face in a lot of pictures back then

Conversation I had with Teddy yesterday.
T:why are you tired,
Me:because you keep coming in my bed at night and squish me,
T:that’s because you don’t move over.
Gotta love his reasoning.

Maizie just told me our “audium balls” (ornaments) were magical because Santa is magic.

Look at Maizie smile, so happy

Just took a Christmas card picture. Stella was less than cooperative, Teddy wouldn’t stop singing and Maizie had her shoes on the wrong feet. Oh well, that’s typical. Then Maizie didn’t want to take off her fancy dress and Teddy is walking around with just his underwear (on backwards) and his dress shoes. Stella has been sent to the pack n play until further notice.

If I have to watch Hero of the Rails one more time I’ll send Hiro to the smelter’s yard myself.

My aunt in Florida sent some presents, last night I put them under the tree. What a HUGE mistake.

To this day, I do not put out presents until the 24th (in the afternoon).

Reading these takes me back and looking at the pictures, they were so little!

  1. It is just so much fun to take a trip down memory lane. I have a bunch of old YouTube videos on my YouTube channel that I occasionally look back upon now that my first born is a teenager, I love watching her little face back in the day. The things she said and did, even my sons memories in those videos are just precious!

  2. Kids are simply amazing. They say and do the cutest and craziest things but it’s completely logical at the same time. This brings me back to when my kids were younger. Thanks for sharing your memories.

  3. Isn’t it amazing how we can look back and laugh at things that were not so laughable at the time? These memories and photos are precious. I’m still laughing about the unwrapped presents.

  4. The photo with the wrapping paper on the floor, and its caption… LOL They do grow up so quickly. It’s wonderful to have photos and memories to look back on.

  5. Oh gosh poop all the way down the stairs. I don’t know what I would do if that happened!! Also, did they unwrap all the presents? My kids have never done that, and I was always afraid they would!!
