Elmo was a prophet...

Colby is walking around the house singing 'Follow The Prophet.' Very cute. Well really, only the first two lines. Anyway, I wasn't really paying much attention to what he was saying but when I did, it was too funny. He was singing Elmo was a prophet. When I corrected him and said that it was actually Adam, he was adamant that it wasn't. He said that it was Elmo. Then, I figured out that he meant Alma. I told him that and he said, "Oh yeah, that's what I mean. But I call her Elmo." I didn't even bother to correct him that time. He really makes my day!

The ugliest toy known to man....

It's a blow up punching bag. It was a frill necked lizard or something, until you blow it up. The mouth is actually a little tube that you blow into, then roll up and stick inside the hole which reminds me of a freaky belly button. It was $2.69 and Elijah and Colby both wanted one. I'm a sucker for cheap toys. I's super freaky.

Glue Happy

I did post this on facebook, but I thought I would rewrite it for any who missed it. It was classic Colby.

Yesterday afternoon, I noticed some white stuff on the floor, which I realized was white school glue. I didn't quite get it, until I noticed some more a little ways off. After further investigation, I found glue on 2 stools, under a cup, a bowl, and my chocolate milk syrup. I found Colby with the glue bottle....of course.

Mom: Colby, what are you doing?!?
Colby: (Moan) Ugh.......(drops the glue bottle right at his feet and walks away).

I proceeded to clean up all the glue. Later that night, as I was making the treat for FHE, I found glue on another stool. Elijah brought me a car key, covered in, you guessed it, white glue.

I sat down at my computer desk this morning to find glued to it a business card from the Australian Consulate, a green sheet of paper that said "Blessed are the peacemakers", my mouse pad, and a ballpoint pen. As I sat to type this entry, I tried to move a little toy cell phone and, yep, it's stuck to the desk too!

When I questioned Colby once again, his reply was, "I have no idea what I was doing."


Yes, my house is that messy that I have various things littering the surfaces of everything.

P.S. I did take the glue away from him the first time. I obviously just didn't hide it well enough.
