Conversations with Jill

Because we all need to smile, here are some recent Jill conversations. She really does speak in complete sentences most of the time.

Set scene: I am sitting in the bathroom. (No where is sacred to these children!)

Door opens.

Jill enters.

Jill: "Mommy, will you pick up Danny?"

Me: "Oh, did he fall over?"

Jill: "Yeah, I pushed him over."

Me: "Oh, that was not very nice."

Jill: "Yeah, I pushed him over." This is said while she kicks foot out.

Me: "Did you push him with your foot?"

Jill: "Yeah with my foot."

Me: "Jill, that hurts Danny. Please don't push him."

Jill: "Okay. I will push myself."

Me: "Oh, well, be nice to yourself, but let me know how that works out for you."

Jill exits the bathroom.

An "ow" is heard from the other room.

Danny with both of his grandmas

Cousins: Annibelle, Emily, Jill, and Callie

Danny with his grandpa Boling (Pappy)

Set scene: I am sitting at the kitchen table. My mother is warming up a meal one of the kind people from our church brought.

Jill enters the room.

Jill: "I need some dinner."

Me: "Are you hungry? Bunny is getting some soup ready."

Jill: "I don't like soup."

Me: "Jill, you like taco soup."

Jill: "No, I don't."

Me: "Yes, you do."

Jill: "I don't like soup."

Me: "Jill, remember how we had tomato soup and grilled cheese sandwiches the other day? You ate lots of that soup."

Jill: "Yeah, but I didn't like it."

Conversation ended, because Bunny and Mommy were laughing too hard.


  1. You have a cutest kids! Ryan claims to not like anything I cook these days too. It's chicken nuggets and quesadillas or nothing. Who knew eating would be such a battle?!

  2. Oh goodness! I love that age when they don't like ANYTHING. But seriously, your kiddos are so stinking cute! Daniel has blue eyes like my Asher does!

  3. That is so funny! I am laughing out loud! Bring us more!! Lol I wish I could remember things my kids said! I used to post about things they said.... But I forget them too quickly. Taco soup sounds yummy..... How do you make it??

  4. I told Devin these stories, thanks for the laugh for both of us.

  5. Ah, Mimi thanks for sharing and reminding ( I was present, for the I don't like soup) - it's still pretty tender for me when I'm alone (seem to hold up better when I'm with the rest of the family) and it was wonderful to smile and laugh.

    I'm grateful for what you write and share.

  6. I love that you're documenting Jill's funniness for all of us to enjoy. These posts of yours are so enjoyable; they always make me smile. Thanks for sharing.
