Sweet Boy#2–While standing on top of The Hunky Hubby’s chair–“I’m preparing for my daring escape from the super-high chair.” He then slides down a ramp that the boys set up from this ordinary arm chair to the floor. “There, aha!” –Man, I love their creativity.
Sweet Boy#2–“Enjoy your youth, it doesn’t last long.”
Sweet Boy#3–“Yeah, I don’t have as many problems as old people.”
The Hunky Hubby–“I don’t like wearing YakTraks (think chains for tennis shoes) unless it’s icy. I don’t like the way it feels, like a kitty with tape on its feet. We’ve never tried putting tape on Leia’s foot, we should do that.”
Sweet Boy#2–“I feel like I have a live frog in my stomach.”
Sweet Boy#3–Throws up when he is home sick–“I need to get the foul taste out of my mouth.” Even under duress, his vocabulary is great!
Sweet Boy#2–I gave him a note saying that I would pick him up from school. He got on the bus anyway and I had to chase him down. When I finally found him and got him off the bus, I asked why he didn’t read the note to remind himself not to get on the bus. “Oh, I ate that note.” I then asked why he didn’t read the note before eating it. “I forgot and was hungry.” It’s as though we don’t feed them three meals a day plus innumerable snacks. Now they are eating their sticky notes. Who knows what is next.
Sweet Boy#2–“I never knew what love was until, King. (his pet chicken who died this fall) And King is the reason why I know that life is hard.”
