Five Weird Things

Both Jared and Chip tagged me to list five weird things that my kids do, or have done. So here goes:

1. My daughter makes nests. She piles things up in the corner of her room, or the middle of the hallway, or behind the couch. Sometimes it will be a free-standing jumble of dolls, other times she'll stash food away under her bed. I'm constantly finding strange little collections of things around the house.

2. My son will only wear socks with the Nike swoosh on them.

3. My daughter likes to watch TV upside down.

4. My son frequently laughs like this: "Yuck yuck yuck!" He must've learned that from some cartoon character. I hope he outgrows it. We are not a hillbilly family, contrary to popular belief.

5. Every now and then, my daughter will decide she is a Cat For The Day and wants to eat out of bowls on the floor, clean herself by licking her hands, and rub against our legs until we scratch behind her ears. Thank goodness she doesn't want to use the litterbox!

From what I've read so far, your kids are winning. ;) Yuck, yuck, yuck?

I completely forgot to add your number 5 in my list! Ian has recently started pretending to be a 'kitty' - not only does he clean himself, but he tries to clean licking our faces.

My niece did a version of the cat thing, too.

at least she doesn't eat the cat's food, that's another weird thing my daughter used to do when she was little. Yuk yuk yuk...

OMG LOL. I thought I had the only nutty kids.

My oldest likes to play like he is a dog, barking at everything, growling, rolling on his back and panting.

My youngest has this wierd fascination with string. He pulls stings out of EVERYTHING he can and wraps string around EVERYTHING.

He also likes to get down on all fours and put his head to the ground and scoot around. He has had a bold spot just above the forehead for that before. Now the baby girl is picking up on that.

Kids are funny!

Now, pretending to be a cat is just fine! I could teach her a thing or two, for I am purrfect.
