From the mouths of munchkins . . . .

We went to Dairy Queen last night after Emily's dance performance, I was attempting to simplify the ordering process and this was my conversation with Anna:

(mom) "Anna, do you want to have a dipped ice cream cone or a fruity drink that's like a slurpee?"
(Anna) "an ice cream cone and a drink like a slurpee"
(mom) "no honey, you can't have both, you need to choose one or the other"
(Anna) "other"

(she chose the ice cream cone!)
(Sam) "mom, why does everybody have a different blankie?"
(mom) "I don't know honey, maybe so you can tell whose is whose"
(Sam) "I think it's because God gave everybody a different blankie, He made each of us our own special blankie for our birthday!"


We recently bought Fruit Loops as a treat and Levi was trying to explain to me why I should let him have some for breakfast before going to enrichment ("school") on Monday ~ we usually only use them as a dessert.

(Levi) "I think Fruit Loops would be a great breakfast"
(mom) "No, they're full of sugar and not the best choice right before school"
(Levi) "well, I would think you'd want me to be really wide awake for school, wouldn't you?"
(mom) "maybe, but once the sugar wears off you'll be tired and hungry and you won't be able to think straight"
(Levi) "that's okay, I don't need to think at school"


(Dad) "Sam, you're a little smartie pants!"
(Samuel) "Daaaayyyd!, that's not appwopwiate"! (reminding him of our "no name calling" rule)
