Quote of the Day

It's been a long time since I've blogged about the funny things the kids are saying:

Last February I asked Ethen:
Me: "Do you know what Valentine's Day is?"
Ethen: "No."
Me: "It's a day to celebrate the people you love by saying 'I love you.'  Some ways to say 'I love you' are making something out of paper."
Ethen:  "Or give them Legos."
Me: "Or give them a cookie or cupcake."
Ethen: "[interrupting me] or Legos."
Me: "And we give people we love hugs and kisses and say 'I love you.'"
Ethen: "Uh-huh, and  Legos."

---------------------------

Maya:  "Oh no!  Here it comes again!  Ethen's imagination gone wild!"

---------------------------

After putting on his shirt:
Ethen:  "Mom, let's pretend this is my science shirt."
Me:  "Ok, you're going to be a scientist?"
Ethen:  "Yes, and today we are going to learn about bombs."
Me: [silently] fabulous
Ethen: "Bombs are really expensive.  And when you drop them all the potion comes out."

---------------------------

Me:  "What are you making?"
Ethen:  "A Lego clean up car.  When you make a mess it cleans up it."

---------------------------

While playing video games:
Ethen: "That's cheap!  Only one star?"

"That smells like toast!"
[I think he was trying to say "I just got toasted."]

---------------------------

Ethen: "Are we in San Antonio yet?"
Me:  "No, we are not really in any town right now."
Maya: "They should call this place 'Lonely.'"

---------------------------

Maya:  "Mom, I finally learned what French Fries are made of!!  Salt!!"

---------------------------

In San Antonio:
Ethen: "This is a really good place!  Let's stay here for 1000 miles."

---------------------------

Ethen:  "You're the best mommy in the whole world!  Bring me toys on Christmas and I'll be nice to you!"
