Will kill people that wear my shoes.
Will assume all kids left behind are mine.
There have been times when children (not ours) have been accidentally left at our house, or have tried to sneak into our van. Mom sometimes teases that she will keep them.
You will never know I was there. I’m a ninja.
This one is obvious to anyone that knows Daniel. He is very quiet, and can sneak in and out of the room with out you even realizing it. In fact, he can sit right next to you and you might not notice.
I don’t people well.
Mom came up with this one. If you know me you know I am a selectively social person. I quickly “people out” if I have to interact in a social setting longer than I want.
We are going to skip Rachel and do the Carman family at the end.
This person may fall suddenly for no reason.
Lydia enjoys doing random gravity checks. That means, she is clumsy and falls down a lot.
I have OCTARMD (Obsessive compulsive take apart random machines disorder).
This one is pretty self explanatory.
I just came to see the animals.
Bekah loves animals and prefers them over people usually.
Will injure himself and not realize it.
This one is funny but also serious. Davey often doesn’t recognize when he is hurt. He doesn’t feel pain like normal people do. This means we have to keep a close eye on him.
I will burn the flesh off your face!
This one takes some explaining, yet if you know Jeremiah you know when he is upset he says crazy stuff. This particular time was when Jeremiah was younger, and he was angry with Rachel. Rachel told Jeremiah to hang up his coat, and he didn’t like being bossed by his big sister. So he said “I’m going to burn the flesh off your face.” He caught everyone of guard, including himself, when he said that and it has been a joke ever since.
I will take your turkeys if your not careful.
Josh loves farm birds, especially turkeys. He will often comment on people’s turkeys while we’re driving past farms.
I have a tendency to wander off.
Zach is a very independent guy. If he wants to go somewhere, even if nobody else is going, he will. Now that he is older he has learned to ask before wandering off alone. It was a big issue when he was little though, he is the reason we have “buddies” when we all go out now.
I’m the reason conspiracy theories exist.
Stephen is an extremely imaginative kid. Sometimes, he gets so caught up in his stories, he forgets what is real and what he made up. He can take one sentence you said and spin it into a crazy conspiracy.
A Tornado has touched down in your area.
Mary is a little tornado. Whether she is getting everyone busy in a game of hide and seek, or she decided to get a craft out. There is always a messy trail following this ball of energy.
Prone to extreme outbursts of nonsense.
Anna has mosaic down syndrome. This makes it hard for her to process her strong emotions. When those emotions become too much for her to contain, she will burst into a raging fit often making comments that make no sense at all.
I want to jump.
When Benny was just learning to talk he would constantly say ” I want to jump”. He would jump off of everything too. The couch, the counter, chairs, anything he could climb on really.
I’m the baby of 15.
I think all the kids are spoiled. But, Adam has definitely filled the stereotypical role of the youngest. He loves being the baby and we love spoiling him.
The Carman Clan.
Will tackle sick people near my baby.
Rachel is a protective momma. She especially does not want sick people to be near Junior. She’s kind of picky about who she let’s hold her baby in general. Which is a good thing in my opinion.
Will stop to look at your Combine.
Kiezer is a farmer and he loves his tools. He will talk your ear off about every field you pass, and if you ask about a piece of farming equipment be prepared for a detailed description and stories of how he has used it.
I have 4 generations of Momma’s looking out for me.
Junior has 5 generations of living momma’s. He has his mom, grandmas, great grandmas, and great great grandma.
