Kid Quotes and More!

At school today, Jefferson was asked what he would do if he were President.

I asked him, "What would you do?"

"Give food." was his simple reply.

"Who would you give it to?" I inquired.

"All the people." given matter-of-factly.

Clearly I was distracting him. Cyber Chase was on. .

"Where would you get the food?" I pressed, interested.

"At Macey's." he said without missing a beat.

: )

It makes perfect sense, after all. Where else would you get FOOD, but at a grocery store?


The other day, one of our sons, who shall remain nameless, was . . in the bathroom. I wouldn't mention this incident, but it's just too hilarious to pass up.

Anyway, this boy decided to open the window, as people sometimes do, to air things out a bit. . .

Well, as luck would have it, Aleia and Jeffy were in the backyard, simultaneously amusing themselves by throwing snowballs at the house. I don't get it either. You'd think they'd be throwing them at each other. . .

But sadly, and by pure coincidence, one of them lobbed a snowball just a little too accurately, and sailed it clean through the open window, right into aforementioned unfortunate big brother's lap. : ) He let us know.

I ask you, what are the odds?

Could your day get any worse? : ) Pardon me while I stifle a big grin.


Recently Tommy was pondering his upcoming birthday. I say upcoming because it takes place sometime in the next 6 months. Kids, you know. . . They like to plan ahead. So responsible! : ) Presents, presents, presents!

Anyway, all Tommy wants are movies. He's made a big, long list of a hundred or so of his favorites. He decided to be diplomatic and let us know in all seriousness, and in advance. . . that

"Do what you can do. . but wide screen is preferred."

: )

That boy is in for a rude awakening come June 5th!


Jeffy, a while back, was looking at me threw a glass prism he'd concocted out of thin air. I don't know how he got it. I was sure I'd hidden it away in our closet. . .

He stood on the piano bench and made the astounded observation:

"Wow, I see a ton o' Mamas!"

I laughed and told him it was just me.

"Well. ." he said, undaunted, "You've got like a thousand sisters!"

: ) Ha ha ha. Isn't he cute!


Today, at Kindergarten, a couple of kids were quarreling.

When reprimanded, the first responded with the traditional. .

"He started it!"

The other countered, pouting. . .

"And he hit me second!"

Such pure entertainment!

You could hang out at the school all day, and never stop laughing!
