Classic quotes, Vol. 10

Here is the latest batch of quotes from from my wife J-, 2-year-old daughter M-, and 4-year-old son D-:

M- (after sneezing): Bazoontight!

D- (when asked his favorite sport): Ummm... running around in circles.

M- (beaming, after being told she's a big girl): And you're a big daddy!

J-'s physical therapist (while J- was on her stomach doing "gluteal clenches"): Very good! You're doing much better with those-- you look like you're getting a really good squeeze there!

M- (after glimpsing a single raisin I earlier submerged in her cereal, with a tone, pitch, and volume not unlike a new Publishers Clearinghouse winner): Ooh-a-raaaisinnn!!!*



* I can't publish a quote like this without acknowledging the existence of the greatest source of raisin-related child enthusiasm, Steve at The Sneeze's gifts of raisins to his son on Christmas for the past three years.

When I find raisins I'm always worried the guinea pig has gotten out.

I wonder how she would feel knowing that raisins are just humiliated grapes.

I feel the need to watch Benny and June now.

I love the running in circles sport! I imagine that's very big in the under 10 crowd. How long can you go before you fall down??

Running in circles is MY favorite sport too...okay, it's my only sport, what of it?!

Love the big daddy comment; maybe she thought you've been dissing her all these years!

Why do I think "really good squeeze" prompted this post and the rest of the quotes are all just fluff? ;-)

I'd beware the really good squeeze, my friend.

J- said...

I would like to say I have buns of steel! Okay, I would just like to think it.

Mama Dawg said...

I hate having to smile when mine says "Oooohhh, mom, you're so big" even though I know she doesn't mean it that way.

I don't think my kids have eaten raisins but once or twice in their lives. Poor kids.
