Random Chit-Chat:
Malaya: How long before we gonna move there? It’s been 1000 days already.
Me: Maybe in 2 weeks.
Malaya: I hope I don’t die before then.

Mikela: Mom – how come you never swim with us in the ocean?

Mikela: But we moved. The whale can’t eat you now.

Malaya: Do you think we could leave Gabe in St. Louis?

    How precious! Although I must say, my favorite was Malaya saying that leaving Gabe in St. Louis would be best for everyone. Spoken like an older sister!

  4. Lisa from CACC says:

    Gotta love the views of the kids. Always original and surprising. Tell Rosie that this American will definitely come see you all.

  5. Ann Wise says:

    Love those kids of yours. Tell Mikayla I miss her, she’s a princess, Malaya…well she’s just a riot all the time, Rosie…she’s so inquisitive with those big brown eyes and millions of quesions; Gigi…awesome to watch her walking; the boys…they’re all adorable but still looking for one who favors Jose’s handsome looks…any chance of one in the Mole!
