I love how the minds of our five year old and four year old work! They are so sweet, innocent, curious and down right funny! Here's a few gems they've said to me recently.
"When you grow up you get muscles. Daddy almost has muscles."
While playing the Wii, "Ah!"
"I have a boogie [on my finger]. I can't press B!"
Got a Knight Lego set for Christmas and calls the Knight with long brown hair and a beard his "Jesus Knight."
"Mommy, did you know kids like sugar?"
Began a conversation with the following notion, "One day when you're not a kid anymore and you grow up to be a Jedi... wait, I mean parent..."
"Mom, why do you want to be tall and skinny?" (I always tell him it's great that he is tall and skinny, and that I wish I were too.)
Me: "Because that usually means you're healthy. And people think you look nice when you're tall and skinny."
"I think everyone thinks you look nice Mom."
After I said good night to him and told him I loved him he exclaimed emphatically, "Mom, I love you more than I can be!"
Palmer's conversation to me on our walk home from school, "There's a girl in Ms. Berry's class that I like. She has really pretty glasses, and a princess backpack, and curly hair. She's really nice to everyone. I love her." I laughed aloud at that last part so he quickly retracted and said, "I like her." Then at dinner I told Palmer to tell Greg about the girl. He said the same things but ended the recap this time with, "I'm amazed."
