Words Worth Remembering
Me:"Jude what are you doing?"
Jude:"I'm watering the Ant fort so they'll DIE!"
Jude:"I'll just play with Cai cuz I don't know how to get along with anybody."
Cai:"Henry said he knows he's going to hell. I told him that can change."
Jude:"Dad, what am I supposed to say when someone says, 'What's up?'"
Cai:"Dad, almost every day we have customers at our house."
(he meant VISITORS!)
Jude:"Look mom, they are selling Girl Scouts over there!"
Jude (while watching soccer on TV):"Dad, do they have rebacks on this game?"
Josh:"A what buddy?"
Jude:"Rebacks. You know, to go back and see it?"
Josh:"Oh yeah, a replay? Uh-huh, they do sometimes."
Josh:"Hey babe, are we all out of that, uh, um, Ebenezer juice?"
Josh:"What's that stuff called?"
Jude:"Mom, will you come cuddle with me in my bed? I'll carry you to your bed if you fall asleep."
Me and Josh: "Oh man, Jude, that is a bad scratch!"
Jude:"Yeah, it's ok though. It will be better tomorrow or one day and I'll get that crispy skin on it."
Me (seeing Cai super sweaty): "Hey bud, do you want me to pull your hair back?"
Cai: "Nah, not yet. I'm gonna wait until I grow a mustache so people don't think I'm a girl."
Jude:"What is that thing mom?"
Me:"It's just something that goes to daddy's grill. His BROKEN grill. Maybe we should get daddy a new grill for Father's Day or something."
Jude:"OR a fish. He LOVES whales and fish are kind of like whales, so we should get him a fish. Or a basketball."
