  1. Wait, wait, I love THIS post! It CRACKED ME UP!!! HAH! Lena wants to be a tree when she grows up. And Reed including underwear as part of his outfit! So literal, that boy! LOL!! So stinking funny! I love this idea too! I’m gonna steal it! :) I’ll just make Kyle do it for now…until I have a kid! :)

  2. Awww, sooo cute!!! I’m flabbergasted that they understand English well enough to hold this kind of conversation. Kids learn SO MUCH faster than adults, that’s for sure.

    I also love that Lena wants to be a tree when she grows up…I’ve often said that if I believed in reincarnation, Id want to come back as a tree…its such a romantic idea to me. They are so strong and rooted, their arms permanently stretched to the sky as if praising their maker…ahhh…I love to pretend to be a tree sometimes….is that normal? Maybe Lena will grow up to be a total hippie. :)
