Here's a selection of recent quotes from my 8-year-old son D-, my 6-year-old daughter M-, and my 2-year-old son E-*:
E- (pointing to his stomach, when asked where someone else's food had disappeared to): In!
D- (apropos of nothing, laughing as we walked out of the bank): Remember "Uranus"??
M- (when asked why she was wearing two very different scarves at once, as if it's self-explanatory): Because I have two scarves I can wear...
D- (after I pointed out several hairs on the jelly toast he'd made me while I was sick): Oh, I forgot to tell you..... it fell on the floor.
E- (when told he had to wait for more crackers till we saw how his tummy felt): Don't, WIKE, tum-mee!!
* Still yet to claim his place on the blog banner! I am terrible.
