Quote of the Day

Ethen: "Maya, let's pretend you're my bride and I'm Lord Vampire."
Maya:  "If we play that, Ethen, you have to pay me a million dollars."


While putting together a US puzzle map:

Maya:  "Washington DC is where Barack Obama lives.  Do you know who that is?  He is mean."
Ethen:  "Why?"
Maya:  "Because he is taking all of daddy's money."
Ethen:  "He should go to jail."
Maya:  "He can't.  He's the President of the United States."
Ethen [worried]:  "Does he steal kids' money?"
Maya: "No."

I just laughed and made no attempt to correct any part of this conversation.  I think they pretty much summed it up.


Me:  "We aren't going to the YMCA today."
Maya: "Why not?"
Me:  "Mommy is still sore from yesterday."
Maya [confused]:  "Oh.  So you mean today is Sugar Day?"

[Editors Note:  We do not have sugar day in our house.]
