Zeke:"Dad, YOU used to watch this Xmen? Wow...it really IS old!"
Cai:"Who is Shabila? Is Alethia, Shabila?"
(the things they have already forgotten...)
Me:"Ju-ju, you wanna go rock with mommy on the front porch?"
Me:"No? Well, what do you want to do?"
Jude:"uh, mommy, uh, car-car, uh, go, um, eidi."
Me:"You want to go see Ms. Heidi? Maybe later:)"
Cai:"Mom, did you know that I'm allergic to something and you and daddy don't even know?"
Me:"Really? What are you allergic to?"
Cai:"I don't know."
Me:"Well how do you know that you are allergic to something?"
Cai:"Cuz Zeke told me so."
Cai:"Everybody said I'm so handsome with my new haircut? Did Aunt Velma say that too? I want to go to her house and show her."
Zeke's neighborhood friend, Morgan:"man, you guys eat dinner so early. We don't eat until like 8 or 6."
Me:"8? Wow, that's pretty late."
Morgan:"Well, she pretty much makes it at like 6:51 or something and then we eat it."
Cai:"Zeke, daddy said you HAVE to eat ALL your graham cracker right now because it's almost dinner time. And I'm gonna told him so that you won't eat your snack."
Zeke:"I already ate it Cai."
Cai:"You're just trying to kidding me! I'm tewing daddy."
someone gifted us tickets to the Mudcats game:
Rainy:"When is the game gonna start?"
Me:"Rainy, it already started...we're in the second inning."
Rainy:"So how do we get points anyway?"
Jude:"Ah mo a boom!"
(translation - I wanna see more fireworks! You need to make that happen daddy.)
Cai:"Why isn't it Zeke's turn yet?"
(because if you play baseball you MUST play at every game that we see;)
Cai:"I think Muddy is so sad that he lost the race with that kid. I need to give him a hug...tears...can I PLEASE go give him a hug?"
(he cried for AT LEAST 15 minutes on the way home, ya'll, because he felt so bad for Muddy and wasn't able to find him to give him a hug:(
