Out of the mouths of babes

Sometimes it seems the kids go months without saying anything particularly funny or memorable, and then all of a sudden they are just spewing cute phrasings or coming up with great questions.

Maybe being out of routine helped stir my kids to say some cuter than normal things.

  • While on vacation, on the way back from outlet shopping where Mamaw bought her a friendship journal, N was talking about what she and her BFF would do with the journal when we returned home.  She said, "When we get back to our country....." 
Evidently, I need to consider some light geography review this summer.

  • After having breakfast at Chef Mickey's and reliving the fun of meeting Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Pluto and Goofy, N said, "What is Goofy anyway?," which I thought was kinda funny because I think I've wondered the same thing myself.
G is normally a pretty funny kid, but he was particularly "on" last week.

  • D's mom went with us to Disney and helped us our tremendously with the kids.  At one point, G said to us, "Mamaw punked me in the eyeball," which we thought was likely incorrect.  She may have FELT like punking him the eyeball, but she didn't ever act on it.  

  • While listening to Mickey Mouse Club March, after they spell out "M-I-C-K-E-Y M-O-U-S-E," G said something like, "It's not Elmo See."  He knew it was all about Disney, not Sesame Street.  

  • At some point along our drive, G and N were being silly together in the back of the minivan, making a tremendous amount of noise but fortunately not shrill.  D was driving and had been doing all of it on Monday.  G asked, "Is Daddy awake?"

M can say a handful of words so nothing profound crossed his lips.  However, every time we left our condo and entered the hallway to the elevator, he would start running and barking like a dog.  He loved the echo.
