Some recent comments/conversations with the monkeys:
Addy: (To Eligh) "Come here little fellow."
Eligh: (On our way to the Memorial Day service) "Mommy, I want to go to daddy's gun show!"
Mommy: (wiping at Kinsley's s'more-covered face) "Come here silly girl, you are a hot mess."
Kinsley: "Yeah, I'm a hot mess!"
All of them love to say, "Don't get mad, get glad." (Yes, something I have tried encouraging)
