Gabeisms

I need to write these down more often. Gabe says some of the funniest things. I always think I'll remembe them - but I never do. So here are a couple from this week:
  • Gabe was saying his bedtime prayers and he said, "Please bless Mom's hair to have the help that it needs, and....please bless Mom's earrings." I was a bit confused so afterwards I asked him why he'd asked for help for those things. He said, "Well Mom - the other day you said that your hair needed help, and those earrings you're wearing....well they're just ugly."
  • Gabe ended up sleeping in my bed the other night (Cory was out of town and Gabe couldn't sleep). I discovered that he talks in his sleep - a lot. At one point I woke up to him saying, "You're a dufus!" I didn't know if he was asleep so I said, "What?" He said, "You heard me - you're a dufus." He was totally asleep when he said it.
  • After bedtime prayers the other night Gabe said "Mom SHHHHH - I can't hear the answer." I asked what he meant and he said, "You told me that Heavenly Father will answer my prayers - but I can't hear him talking." I love moments like that when we can teach our children - so sweet.
