Classic quotes, Vol. 21

Here are some recent quotes from my wife J-, my 5-year-old son D-, my now-3-year-old daughter M-, and me:

D- (excitedly, as I mix salsa and sour cream): Are we having chimps and dip?!?

M- (looking at Winnie-the-Pooh clock, trying desperately to become the world's first 3-year-old to either carry a tune or remember actual song lyrics): Winnie the Pooh, Winnie the Pooh... silly nilly willy, stuffed with stuff! Winnie the Pooh, Winnie the Pooh... he fluffs himself! ... Silly old bear.

Me (to J-, pulling what we'll call "a Dan", in fairness): "In a few minutes"? "In a few minutes"??? What's "a few minutes" mean by this point? Once you get past 60, they're called "hours", so you know.

M- (with a gentle, warning tone as I begin to finish off the last piddling bit of Goldfish crackers, only once she's had plenty of them): Save some for other people, Dad...

D- (referring to his sister's lollipop stick that missed the garbage can): Oh, yeah, I stepped on that before, but I pulled it back off my foot.

I do miss toddler language. My teens use words now I have to look up and blush. xx

I love me some chimps and dip but I'm not sure exactly what's best - spicy salsa or maybe ranch.

Chimps and dip.... love it!

The thing about being a jerk: your kids start talking and say jerky things back to ya. (I bet you totally ate your share of chimps and THEN some!) (I love your cute family!)

'he fluffs himself' - HA!

A celebrity like Winnie the Pooh shouldn't have to fluff himself.
