CCM stands for Classic Children's Moments....
you know, when your child says something,
does something, or points out something that is classic!
It can be either so funny or so sweet
you run to get paper and jot it down,
or so embarrassing you want to run get a shovel,
dig a deep hole, crawl in it and never come out.
We have CCM's a lot over here and unfortunately
I have not a great job of journaling them all.
Here's a recent one...
In the grocery with just the girls
and I am near the cheese & dairy section.
We turn the corner and I hear Charlotte gasp...
ohhh Mommy...Can you believe it?
They have CHOCOLATE EGGS here!
How do they make chocolate eggs Mommy?
Then a conversation with William when he was five:
I was a part of this conversation along with our four children.
Sarah Grace was crying and I thought she was injured from playing outside.
Sarah Grace: crying but no sign of injury
Me: "Sweetie, Are you ok?"
Sarah Grace: "No" (tears streaming)
Me: "What happened? Did you get hurt?"
Sarah Grace: "Only my feelings got hurt
because William told me I cannot marry Walker."
Me: I hug Sarah Grace and look at William
and before I could even say a word...
William: "Well Mom, she can't marry Walker...
they would have weird looking kids!
It's the law...you can't marry your family!"
P.S. We have had this same conversation
and tears over not being able to marry Daddy.
Then this was one of my favorites:
William 5 years old said to me...
"Mommy, GUESS WHAT?"
Me: "What William?"
William "When I get to be a Daddy,
guess how many kids I'm gonna have?"
Me: "How many, William?"
William: "4...just... like you and GUESS WHAT ELSE?"
Me: "What William?"
William: "MY four kids can play with YOUR four kids...
won't that be fun?
Me: Tears of joy and sadness
because comments like this won't last forever!
Then there was the time Walker spotted this license plate
...we "belly laughed" in the parking lot!
Then when Walker was a toddler
(only one child then...what was that like???)
My sweet toddler was in a store shopping cart
and we're waiting in line to check out
and he squeals "Look mama, Clown! Clown!"
And yes, standing right next to us
was a woman who had on so much make-up it was unreal.
I wanted to crawl in that hole I mentioned earlier. ughh!
Tell me your funny, embarrassing or most treasured CCMs?
I know you have some! Share, share!
