Be sure and link up with Mrs.4444 if you're fragmenting today!
I hate it when Rob's not home, except for one thing I like about when he's gone: Pulling out of the driveway. His freaking LandCruiser is so huge (it's a tank!), I can't see around it when I'm backing out. I'm always afraid I'm going to bump into someone coming down the road. I can't wait until that thing bites the dust!
And now for some cute kid quotes:
Jack, nearly 7 (!!!!), was eating his hamburger from Burger King for lunch today. He complained from the back seat of the van, "Mom, this ham tastes like ear wax! It's gross!"
Which leaves me wondering whose ears he's licking...
While at dance class last night, Jack and Sophia (4.5), were playing in the back of the van as I knitted up front. Soap and I had this conversation, which was absent-minded on my end at first:
S: "Mom, can I eat this piece of bread?"
Me: "Sure, honey, go ahead..."
S: "Cool, it has GREEN stuff on it!"
Me: "NO!!! DON'T EAT THAT!!!" (Suddenly lunging...)
Jack and Sophia were playing upstairs, pretending to be our two kitties who do NOT get along:
J: "I'm Star!"
S: "And I'm Tinkerbell. And I'm gonna fight with you! HISSSSSSSSSS!"
Poor Star. She tries to make nicey-nice, but that Tink just won't have it. Apparently the kids have taken note of all her hissing!
I was saying that Daddy might take the kids to Burger King for dinner (I have lots of coupons for free Kids Meals) Weds. night while I was at Bunco. Jack said, "Aw, Mom, I don't want to eat dinner without you, because I love you SO much! You're so sweet!"
Aww, my son. ♥
Jack and I went to the grocery store together. He told me, again from the back seat (we have the best conversations in the car!): "Mom, did you know Indians eat their food, and then spit it out, and then eat it again, and then spit it out, and then eat it again? They're disgusting Indians, I don't know why they do that!!"
I think I'm gonna have to look that one up and then teach my kid a thing or two about Native Americans, but still, the level of grossed-outness by a kid who farts on purpose just to smell himself was pretty funny...
Be sure and answer my Aloha Friday question too, coming up next! ☺
