This weekend we had temperatures breaking all the records. It was as hot as 111 degrees today. When I walked outside, I felt like I was cooking. At a time like this, it’s even too hot to eat. Kids, it looks like we’re having popsicles for dinner.
It’s been some time since I wrote about my sons (H and S) and what they’ve been saying these days. I thought you would enjoy their words today. I wanted to write these words down before they got lost.
From my ten-year-old:
When I get to college, I’m going to take an English class so I can move to England. (11/24/12)
Me: Why don’t you get up and do it?
H: Because I’m busy relaxing.
It’s easier to live with guests.
(How he refers to “roommates.” I’m sure this will change; 3/22/13)
The teacher had a creepy smile and treated us like kindergarteners. She’d say, “What will we do next?”
(The teacher was a substitute. I thought it was pretty funny, but you might have had to have been there; 5/23/13)
I’m just going to wait until middle school to find the girl of my dreams. Then there will be more options. (He just completed fourth grade. Yikes, it’s time for the talk; 5/30/12)
From my seven-year-old:
I’ll you give three words why I don’t want to go visit Grandma: Skylanders. That’s Sky-lan-ders. (Words, syllables…close enough; 11/24/12)
Me: Is your tummy full?
S: Yeah, except for my thirst tank. (1/13)
And now, a little joke:
Q: What happens when a tide comes over your brain?
A. You get brainwashed.
(“Tide” as in Tide, the laundry detergent. Aw, good one! 4/3/13)
My tooth came out with a swallow. (4/5/13)
My son drank a whole bottle of water in 10 minutes. Actually in less than 10 minutes. Are you going to put that on your blog? I think you should put that on your blog. I think you should write that.
(Yes, he said this whole thing. All right already. Done!; 5/20/13)
I hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend.
