Classic quotes, Vol. 14

Here are the latest quotes from my 5-year-old son D-, 2-year-old daughter M-, my wife J-, and me:

J- (after awakening me with a confused snooze-button smack to the face when her alarm, on the other side of the bed, went off at 5am): Oh, I didn't know you were there.

D- (as if he's proposing something fun for me): Dad, you wanna watch a kid movie? It's been a few days since yesterday when we watched Curious George with Momma.

J-'s student (after J- removed her glasses to rub her eyes): Geez, Mrs. --, you're really pretty without your glasses!*

D- (as Spider-Man, while holding a cordless phone to his ear): Dad, you've got to feel my muscle... (remembering the game he was already playing, turning toward the phone) Hold on, Batman.

* Explanation from J-: "This happened in a moment of much-needed relaxation, as I was pretending the children and the rest of the world don't exist, but then they once again interrupted me rudely to prove that they do."

Funny quotes. I especially like the snooze alarm one.

When my alarm goes off, many mornings I shout 'more sleep' and hit the alarm.

Chris M. said...

bahahahahaha, "Hold on, Batman."

That...is gold.

"So, yeah, I passed Wonder Woman the note."

*garble, garble*

"Well, she said she needed a 'Maybe' box."

Time really does move differently for kids. It's been days since yesterday.

I hope you explained to your son that Spiderman is from Marvel and Batman is from DC Comics, which means they live in parallel universes and cannot talk on the phone.

My favorite is the 'feel my muscle' from the son at the heart of the "look at me!" phase.

Our quote from the weekend was this:
Me (to 3yo): Daddy and I will have our anniversary on friday.
3yo: WOW! Hooray!
Me: Do you know what an anniversary is?
3yo: NO! (She pauses while making the thinking face.) Um... it means we get cake?!?

The Batman one is my favorite! Was he using the phone as both communication device and dumbell?

"a few days since yesterday"

That makes total sense to me:)

Good to know that D- is thinking of you, putting your video-viewing needs ahead of his.

Funny, I personally think I look prettier WITH my glasses. They totally cover my deep under-eye circles, puffy bags and crow's feet.
