Quotable Kids...

I have some quotable kids. And mostly, though, they're quotable by accident.

~ Mini-Me was playing with J-man. Ages 11.5 & 6. She was heard, in character, "Let him go! He's *MY* Science Experiment!"

Gotta love that.

~ Then there was the time when J-man was yelling at Bubbles, who seems to have made it her life mission to annoy the sibs at random times (She's four. It might be her job description.) He yelled at her, "Go away!! Find your own troll bridge!"

Seriously. I loved it.

~ Let's see. There was the time we were heading home from church. We attend church on Sunday night and it was late. When I left the building, I was hot! The Van was hot. So I cranked up the A/C. If you've got it, use it, I say. J-man developed a case of hiccups. "I've got the hiccups AND I'm cold. This is torture!"

~ Bubbles just told me, "You have a beautiful brain."

Of course, part of me wonders what she's after, but I'll take what I can get.

~ Mini-Me is part of a very small youth group and she doesn't exactly fit in. She said, "The girls were talking about how mean their mothers were."

I asked her, knowing I'm often mean and the established bad cop, "What did you say?"

"I just told them 'my mom is fun' and they just looked at me."

Awwwww.... my kids do love me.

~ J-man will often mangle songs. My favorite was "Old MacDonald had some glasses, with a blink blink here, blink blink there blink blink everywhere I go."

I wish I could capture everything they say. I'd put it in a bottle. to bring out when I needed an extra smile.
