Earlier this week, Kailey came down with a cold. Evidently she heard me talking to Jamie on the phone, telling her that Kailey had a fever and a stuffy nose; because, later that morning, Kailey looked at me with the saddest face and said, "Mom, I gotta fever in my nose."

Joel bought Kailey a cd called Power Tunes (his mom had the tape for him and his brothers and sisters when they were little), and she absolutely loves it, especially the song called "Attitude." The other day we left it at Jamie and Joe's, she was sad to say the least. So when I told her that we were going to go get it, she said, "Mom, I'm so happy, Attitude is my best song!!" It's funny to me how she expresses what she feels even when she doesn't know the right words to use.

A couple of weeks ago, Jared (Joel's brother) and Keri were in town, so we went to meet them and some other Bonnette's at Ninfas for dinner. On our way, Kailey was asking for goldfish, I told her that she couldn't have any because she needed to have an appetite for dinner. A few minutes later, she said, "Mom, I need my apple tight." It took me a second, and I realized what she was asking for, so I had to explain that appetite wasn't something that you eat, nor did it have anything to do with apples.

Kailey recently started this thing where she tells me that she is a baby robot and I am a mama robot. The first time that she did it, she brought it up early in the day, and had stopped by that afternoon. Then that night when I tucked her in bed, she said, "Night, night, mama robot." I did my best not to laugh and said, "nigh, night, baby robot." Tonight in the bathtub she was a robot fish.
Need a drink of meat?

When Kailey eats she always tries to get the food that she doesn't want to eat off of her plate. She usually tries to put it on my plate or on the floor. I guess she is trying to get creative in ridding her plate of the unwanted food, because here is how Joel found her cup. We had gotten up from the table to work on the strawberry pie that we had started before dinner, and while she was at the table alone, she took advantage of the opportunity.


  1. Those kids are both so cute. I love how creative Kailey is. Where does she get the robots from? It's so funny when they're learning to communicate, it's a lot of words to learn! Smart girl for trying to hide her food Kaiden just screams that he doesn't want anymore. But I've had your pork before and that's one thing she should be eating up!

  2. Ha! My favorite was the story about the robot. I have no idea how you didn't pee on yourself! About the meat- Sometimes I wish I could do the same!

  3. I love the Kaileyisms. All of them. I love the fever in her nose and her needing her apple tight and being a baby robot...and hiding her unwanted food in a cup. I love that silly little girl. :) Does she dance to "Attitude"? I bet she does. :)

  4. Cute, smart kids. What more can you ask for? Just wanted you to know I have a blog now, so come on over and visit if you get a chance!!

  5. she's so smart and cute. I miss you guys.
