Why I like my family and other such stuff

Remember how my momsie couldn't find curry
anywhere in TN and she nearly killed me dead when I came back from CA
without any?  And how she bought 12 boxes of it when we went to
MI?  And she was bitter with Uncle Paul when he didn't bring her
any?  Well guess what?  I searched high and low.  And I
found it.  Where, you ask?  Was in in Way West Tennessee
where I found brocolli sprouts for myself (I do prefer alfalfa sprouts,
though)?  Nope.  It was in our local Krogers, not 10 miles
from our house in the asian section.

Anyways, here is a quick rundown of why I like my little brothers so much.

When I'm sick, Bobo (8) will pray that I don't die.  He's smart
enough to read any book that I'm reading, which makes for great
discussion since he's the only other person that likes the style of
books I do.  He cried when we couldn't share a room anymore last

James (2) does not always obey me- sometimes he'll just make a weird
face and do a dance.  But when I sit in the car next to him, he
insists on holding my hand/arm, putting my head on his carseat and
kisses the back of it until I can't take the slobber anymore. 

Dippy (5) is a hard worker.  One day I was making quite a few
trips outside and hardly noticed him banging a stick on a patch of ice
near the carport.  When I did take notice and finally asked him
what he was doing he said “I don't want door cah to fwip!”  (I
don't want your car to slip).  He knew I was leaving for the Post
Office soon, and was determined to clear that patch before I
left.  I think he was slightly disappointed when he realized I was
taking the van, a vehicle safe from the path of ice, and highly
unlikely to “fwip”.  He also tells me “I wuv do so much because do
are duh best babysiddoh in duh WODE” (I love you so much because you
are the best babysitter in the world– all said while washing cupboards
I assigned to him)

    You have such sweet brothers:)

    Have you ever had curried potatoes? They are SOOOOOOO good, if I ever find the recipe, I’ll give it to you. Oh, I think I have one for Seminole Beef Stew-YUM!

    Sounds like you are one very loved girl! How smart you are to know that the blessing of children is not only for the parents but for the siblings as well!

    Merry Christmas!

    Hey Coie,

    Thanks for stopping by my blog. I have six siblings, 3 of them younger sisters, so I have had similar experiences in reverse. Aren’t little kids a blast?

    Take care and have a merry Christmas,

    Thanks for sharing those delicious candies.

    I am trying to hide some just for me but I am not having much success. Everyone wants one or two and sometimes three. So yes, they are a hit. You done good!

    Thanks for coming with your momsie and blessing our family today .

    Merry Christmas!

  7. Your Ode to Your Siblings……

  9. Awwwwwwwwww.

    That it so sweet. Your brothers sound really cute. : )

    (Have you ever noticed that I end almost ALL my comments with a smiley?)

  10. The power of positive thinking….

    Thanks for sharing such sweet tidbits about your baby brothers. I bet that really made them feel good, and so it’s not surprising why they like their big sister Coie so much. What a great example you set for us. It can be hard to see the good in slobber or a disobedient dancer, but you manage — and quite successfully, I might add. I like your brothers, too — what sweet blessings they must be to you.

    Merry Christmas!

    Wow Coie, that was really sweet! It’s usually not that easy for me to find something good in my siblings.

    It was really nice meeting you and I hope you all have a Merry Christmas!
