Knudson Family Drama.

Living with a 5 year old.

Cadynce was up at 6:45 this morning. Colby went and got her and threw her in bed with me, turned on cartoons, and jumped in the shower (he had to work). She does not sit still and every two minutes she has something to say. Finally, at 7:45, Camden woke up, so I rolled myself out of bed and got things going. I'm not sure where she gets this from, but she has to know exactly what we are doing for every second of the day. So before I can even get a sip of coffee or their breakfast done she is asking, "mom, what are we doing today?"..."and then what?"..."uh-hu, and after that?"... "oh, and mommy, can I take my moose that papa got me? You know papa got me this moose for my birthday last night?"..."yes Cadynce, I know that papa got you that. And I don't know what else we are doing today." Take note, that was like a 30 second conversation. I got the kids their cereal and hopped in the shower. We got all ready and went to go get some REAL coffee, enter Starbucks! Starbucks is maybe a five minute drive my house, ok, more like 7, but anyhow, she did NOT stop talking the WHOLE time. And she bounces from thing to thing.

-mom, can i bring my moose into napa when we get there?
-oh, mommy, did you see the helicopter is back.. it must not be out saving lives.
-is papa going to be working, what day is it?
*i can't even answer because another thought/question/phrase is flowing from her little mouth.
-that's where i had my swim license (yes, license not lessons)
-are we going to go this way to Napa, or back by our house.
-mommy, remember that time when me and alex and camden were playing on the blue thingy with the water, and the little pool, and camden would go back and forth and me and alex would too, that was the same day that nana dropped off alex. that was when nana was alive though. not dead.
*one gigantic run-on sentence. Whoa.

Finally, we get to Starbucks, I always have to remind them to be quiet when I'm ordering and through the line. Oh heavenly coffee....I can now tune out the ramblings of my five year old because I have a Venti-nonfat-with whip cream mocha.

please note: this was all before 10 am.

And he makes sense MOST of the time but sometimes i think he just likes to hear himself talk! I LOVE MY KIDS,,, and i miss yours.. and you :)
