Jack: Mom - would you be really mad if someone put paint on your house? Charlie: or ketchup?
I had asked Jack several times to do something and he kept not doing it. I was frustrated and started yelling at him. He yelled back at me, "I THOUGHT CHURCH PEOPLE WERE SUPPOSED TO BE NICE!"
Jack: Why do I have to take piano?
me: Because you have musical talents and you need to develop them.
Sam: yeah, and you're also talented at popping.
Charlie: yeah, and locking.
The other day while in the car Dan was calling everyone "Cookie-Head Jenkins" (if you know what movie this is from you are a long lost sibling of Dan's). The kids thought it was hilarious and were getting giggly. Sam - sitting in the way back - says (laughing), "it just keeps getting funnier and funnier every time you say it!"
The other day after my grandma's funeral Jack turns to Dan and says, "Dad, when you pass away I want to inherit Guitar Hero so I can play it and then I can give it to my kids." What a wonderful family heirloom.
Sam and Charlie have been singing this little tune all day, "Mary had a little lamb, lost her sheep at home."
Charlie loves to ask us all this: 'member on Elf? sumanutcracker? (son-of-an-nutcracker). After which he laughs and laughs. (They all love Elf)
Charlie calls it a "louder" rather than a "ladder". He also calls his cousin Alex "Owlex".
A few months ago Jack asked me: who are those guys called who say ottergyle? me: I'm not sure who you mean. Jack: You know, the ones who play the pipe cleaner? me: oh - Scottish people, who play the bagpipes and wear argyle?
Sam: Today can we go to Little Tweezers for some pizza?
Sam's eating an apple slice, except for the skin.
Me: you know that skin's good for you, right?
Sam: yeah, it helps you grow skin.
