Boys vs. Girls: I Love You

8 Aug

What a day (a week, rather) we are having!  We have been super busy getting ready for Vacation Bible School at my church, and thankfully have a day off today.  We are so excited to see what God is going to do in our church and community this weekend.  

Anyway, we are spending the day doing whatever we want to do.  We went to storytime this morning and came home and picked tons of veggies from the garden, and now I am canning some tomatoes and pickles while the kids are playing.  Charlie is outside torturing the cats with his spray bottle full of water and Maddie is upstairs doing who knows what. 

I just wanted to share this quick snippet of a lunchtime conversation between the kids and myself.

Maddie has been really into Barney lately.  She LOVES the “I Love You” song.  I found a YouTube video that plays it over and over and over, so I don’t have to keep starting it over for her.  Here’s the link if you are in the same situation:  

Maddie has her own version of the song:

You wuv me,

You wuv me,

We’we a appy famawie,

With a wug, wug, wug,

An a kiss fwum you to me,

You wuv me, me, me, me, me.


I just love this.  Maddie can’t say the “H” sound yet, and substitutes it with a “W”. Plus, she gives the biggest hugs and just smacks her lips to go along with the words.  It is precious.  

What I most love about Maddie’s version is that she focuses on the fact that we love her, not that she loves us.  It reminds me of the Disciple John, who refers to himself as the “one who Jesus loved,” not because he was being conceited but because he just couldn’t believe that he was loved by Jesus, God’s son!  I feel that way sometimes about God’s love for me, too!

During lunch today Charlie busted out with his version of the song:

I love poots,

You love poots,

Poots, Poots, Poots, Poots, Poots, Poots, Poots,

With a great big poot,

And a pooty, pooty, poot,

Poot, poot, poot, poot, poot, poot, poot.


He is very special to us.

Nothing like a little love between siblings.

    Thank you Charlie, for listening to your Gaga and singing “I love poots” and not “I love farts”! I love poots sounds much sweeter than that ugly old other word.

      I know, Mama! I totally agree! I hate the F-word! Every time he is around his cousins I have to re-train him not to say it.

    I really liked Charlie’s version of Jesus Loves Me. “Jesus Loves me, this I poot.” And mama, I don’t think a song about flatulence sounds sweet, whichever word you use! Well, I do because I think it’s hilarious, but in general!

      Hahahaha! You can pretty much add “poot” to any song and it is funny!

      Twinkle, Twinkle, little poot.

        The wheels on the poot go round and round. I don’t know if he sings that, but it would be a good one.
