Sam’s Birthday Interview ~ 5 Years Old May 27, 2011

Yesterday, my baby turned 5. I’m sad to leave all the baby years behind us (well, a little sad anyway), but oh, so excited to watch him grow up. And being 5 means he gets to go to kindergarten in September. I can hardly wait, um, I mean he can hardly wait of course.



Last year, I started to do a short video interview of the boys on their birthdays. In Sam’s interview, you can learn all about David & Goliath, and how the Israelites chased the Philibeans. Click the link to watch the interview.

Our son Sam is currently 4-years-old, and sometimes, he says the craziest things. Here are a few that he’s said lately:

  • I had just finished a bowl of Berry, Berry Kix when Sam walked in the kitchen, saw my bowl and said, “Mom, how come you have pink milk? Is it from a pink cow?”
  • Sam started telling me a story about climbing up a tree. I must confess that I wasn’t paying much attention, until is storytelling started getting very dramatic.   “ . . . and I wouldn’t be able to come down {sticks his pouty lip out}, and I would get very hundry {sticks his pouty lip out farther and tears start welling up}, and I would miss Mommy and Daddy {Crying, slobbering, blubbery mess}.”
  • Sam and I play a little game where he gives me a kiss and I pretend it’s yucky and wipe it off. Then I give him a kiss and he pretends it’s yucky and wipes it off. During the game, he gave me a kiss and then said that it was a, “Super-de-duper-re-doup-er-de-ooper-y-permanent kiss”, and that I can’t wipe it off.
