They say the darndest things

Things heard around here this week….

E: Mama, when I am a spider…(pause)
M: Um, yes?
E: When I am a spider, I will wrap bugs up with my web and then I will suck their blood!
M: Um, okay…

(Maybe we need to lay off the Charlotte’s Web, which is our current DVD of choice?)


A: Oh no! (As she is picking her sprawled little body up off the floor.)
M: You ok, Addie?
A: I ok, Mama. I TUFF!

(And if A. saying that, with her shoulders thrown back looking all proud, doesn’t bring tears to my eyes, I don’t know what will. She is “tough,” but I just want her to need a little cuddling….sometimes!)


E: Daddy, boys have penises!
D: Yep.
E: And girls have zucchinis!
D: Not exactly…

(I, unfortunately, heard this one secondhand through J.  But I would have paid big bucks to hear him explaining to E. what exactly girls do have, though! Or to see how he kept a straight face after that one…)

    It is so funny to think of the things our little people say. Zoe is just getting verbal enough to occassionally make sense, and already she cracks us up.
