Happy Tuesday! If you've got any funny quotes saved up, link up below!
Here's my contribution for the week (well, the kids' contribution...):
John Paul, eyeing my ginger ale: When will I drink ginger ale?
Me: ... Maybe when you're... 15?
JP: And I'll wear deodorant!!! When I'm fifteen-and-a-half!!!
Yeah, that's something to get excited about...
John Paul and Cecilia find an accessory for a glider the babies have outgrown:
JP: When will we use this?
Me: When we have our next baby.
JP: Boy babies!!!
Me: Well, maybe we'll have more boys. But probably just one baby at a time from now on...
JP: No! Twin babies!
Me: Well, usually people don't have more than one set of twins... And twins are hard, so do you really want us to have more twins?
JP: Maybe... QUADRUPLETS!!! So we can have the same number of boys and girls!!!
Glad he's not in charge...
|Now imagine six more...|
Cecilia, singing: Shoo fwy, don't bodder me,
shoo fwy, don't bodder me,
shoo fy, don't bodder me...
*pauses to pick her nose, resumes singing*
Ceciwia has a booger in her nose!
|Not usually this serious...|
Cecilia: What's a baby gwasshopper called?
Me: Um... A baby grasshopper?
Cecilia: Maybe a spider?
Me: No. Grasshoppers and spiders are not the same.
Cecilia: Oh. Are gwasshoppers and spiders da same?
Me: ...No... Look! Mary Claire wants to hug you!
Because if I hadn't changed the subject she would have asked the same question 50 more times...
John Paul: What kind of car does Dad drive?
Me: A Toyota.
JP: What type of Toyota?
Me: A Corolla.
Cecilia: And what type of car does Jesus dwive?
Me: ... Jesus doesn't drive a car...

Me: Well, no, we have never risen from the dead...
Cecilia: Wike my Nana! Da one who died!

There comes a point where the conversation gets a little too heavy for me...
John Paul, listening to bible songs: Dad, what's "meek?"
Andrew: Well, it's when you're very humble and obey really well.
Cecilia: I'm meek!!!
John Paul: Me too!
Andrew: Well, you're not really meek, John Paul... You would have to do a much better job not arguing...
Cecilia: I'm meek, because I'm... *pauses for a while to think* I'm not meek.
Me: Okay, Cecilia.
Cecilia, running over to tickle John Paul: Tickle tickle tickle! Now I'm meat! I'm meat because I tickled John Paul!!!
Cecilia: Could we pway Gus da Ghost and I'm Maura and you're Mr. Hardy?
John Paul: NO!
Cecilia: Maybe later could we pway Gus da Ghost?
John Paul: No, it's too expensive...
Cecilia: How much does it cost?
John Paul: Oh, one-thirty-nine-ninety-five.
