Sophia watching me polish my shoes before work.
"Mom, what is that stuff? Make-up for your shoes?"
(pretty accurate for a 5 yr old, right?)
Nathan: Mom, I'm thinking of my favorite shape I'd like to be. (Looks at me with eyes that say, "Guess what it is!:)
Me: Hmmm... let me study your face.... is it a square? No? Is it a circle?
Nathan: Nope! it's a rectangular prism because it's my favorite shape and it's also a word I like to say! (Said with tone like 'BAM! (drops microphone))
S: Is Mama coming home?
N: Yes. she's coming home. What did you think? She went to Seattle?
S: Who is 'Attle?
Nathan and Brent were tickling and Brent made a weird noise. Nathan said, "You sound like a wolf with a kidney stone, Dad!"
Sophia gets in trouble for calling her brother a "butt" and saying other words that we classify as "potty words". . She was playing around, putting a pillow on the floor and then jumping off the couch onto it and I heard her exclaim the first time she landed "Look! That didn't even hurt my potty word" (literally using the words "potty word" instead of saying "butt") Apparently we need to work on context and intent....
Me: Nate, I think they're making another 'Finding Nemo' movie.
Nate: Ugh!! He's lost AGAIN??
(My sister's response to this story was that she believes the entire plot of the 2nd movie is a crew following Dory around while she tapes "Have you seen this fish?" signs on telephone poles.)
Sophia: Mom, Nate had a friend over and they invited me into their funness!
S: Mama, remember when I was a baby and then I grew up and up and up into this person?
Nathan has a friend over. I can hear them wrestling (what is it about 8 yr old boys and wrestling?)
I hear nathan say, "Now, here's a little something I like to call 'expertise'!"
