On being 4

I wasn't really going to write a "4 year" post or a "4 year interview" because really it's all so random. The boys can be so different from one day to the next. However, they have had us in stitches the past few weeks with their complete randomness so I decided I would share some of what having three 4 year old boys is like.

The boys have a few self proclaimed favorites...

Favorite food; Mac N Cheese & waffles, seriously he eats a whole box of Annie's in one sitting & I have to cut him off after 4 waffles.
Favorite color; purple & black
Favorite animal; chickens & monkeys.
Favorite character; Thomas of course but we have seen a significant decrease in playing with Thomas or watching thomas on TV.
What he wants to be when he grows up; A baby, he says he's not getting bigger & he staying a baby.

Caden has formed a strong opinion about his hair cut which is why his is long on top. He wants his sides short & the top long! He is strong willed & as stubborn as his moms! He has never seemed to pay much mind to the dogs or cats but when we were on vacation he cried for them every single night. He has long talks with them now at home. He lets us know what emotion he is feeling most of the time, "I'm excited to..." "I'm very very sad..." "That makes me happy/smile" he uses words like terrible, awesome & amazing which always crack me up!

Favorite food; Cereal, he doesn't even care what kind.
Favorite color; Yellow
Favorite animal; whatever zoo animal comes to mind when we ask, zebra, giraffe, lion...
Favorite character; Buzz & Woody & Thomas too
What he wants to be when he grows up; MomMom, lol!!! A golf cart driver & a digger ( bulldozer, back hoe, dump truck) driver. He'd also like to drive MomMoms trucks (fedex trucks) 

Kellan is the most happy go lucky of the 3 boys, he's pretty laid back but far from being a pushover! He doesn't care what we do with his hair or his clothes, unless there is a yellow shirt clean, then he has to wear the yellow shirt, lol... He is the most sensitive emotionally! He still pouts when he sees a photo of my dad & won't say "grandpa" when we ask who's in the photo. He does talk about him at other times though. Kellan loves to give compliments, he always says his food is "dEElicious!" & comments on people's shirts, shoes & hair. He is the biggest love bug & just so incredibly sweet!

Favorite food; Chicken
Favorite color; Red
Favorite animal; Monkeys, cats & puppies
Favorite character; Spider-Man 
What he wants to be when he grows up; A firefighter

Garren is, well... our biggest handful. He talks non stop, asks a thousand questions a day, gets into everything, challenges us on everything, he's wild, rowdy & hyper. He wants to know how everything works & why! He is particular about his clothes, this past winter he would NOT wear jeans, only sweatpants, lol... He is also particular about his food & he's pretty specific about how it's presented. Garren also likes to be close, he's very affectionate & likes to be touching most of the time. He never just sits next to someone, it's always against them or on them.

The personalities of all 3 boys have me in awe most days, it is so interesting watching them grow into little people & develop individually.  I'm also usually in amazement at their memories, it's unbelievable the things & details they remember & especially from how far back, although their sense of how long ago isn't so good. Everything was "last night" or "the other day."

They are each very polite & very caring, physically & emotionally. The biggest comment/compliment we get about them is how polite they are, which always makes me feel like we're doing something right.


  1. I love how completely different they are! They sound like such amazing, happy and confident big boys! We have no concept of time in our house too - something that happened 6 months ago will come out as "last night". You're doing a ton of things right!! I absolutely love when kids are polite. The girls are doing fairly well, but will forget their 'please' and 'thank you' when they're in new situations.

  2. What awesome little guys you two have!!!! They each sound so spunky and spirited and all those other things that moms say instead of, "Wow, I bet you have your hands full" ;)

    Thumbs up on being polite and kind. We need more polite and kind in this world!
