I was pushing the kids in their swings, and all of sudden Zola comes out with, "I need a face so I can talk to people."
"Well, uh, yeah, I guess that's true. Having a face does enable you to talk to people."

My 10 year old has told me that she hates math. Last night while re-doing long division questions that she got wrong, she states loudly to me:

Z: "I wish I was math."

Me: (getting excited at the possible turning point on math) "Why, baby?"

Z: "Because I could sit there and make everyone else look stupid."

It was so funny and sad all at once, I soothed her wounds, told her she was good at math but just hated that it was tedious (which is true) and we made it through finally.

Poor thing! That long division stumps all the kids, it seems. They go from such simple stuff straight to that and it throws them right off. hugs

The Emperor is getting really into identifying ownership of objects right now. Daddy's computer, mommy's shoes, Grey's train, and so on.

Today I was getting him something out of the fridge and left my own piece of bread on the counter. He swipes it, cheerfully says "mommy's bread! Mommy's bread!" and then stuffs it into his mouth and walks away.

Phoenix was talking about his latest Lego creations this weekend...he called one Alligator Smack and the other one The Ultimate Crack. I have no idea where that came from!

So, looking after the 8 year old nephew today... And we're looking at this dog, talking about it... And he says "you know Tyler... technically dogs are just small furry humans".

Okay also... I came to post about something else awesome he just did... But then he said something even more awesome.

So, we're watching Netflix... He sees Battlestar Galactica (1978) on my queue and wants to watch that... I figured he just liked the robot... But I turn it on on and he recites the entire opening sequence and sings the entire song for the credit...

And then later when there was some space scenes and shots of a green and black screen computer he goes... "it all looks so real"

This coming from a kid who is raised on all the modern day movies and cgi.

I insisted on pronouncing it "ont" even though my relatives all said "ant" because I thought it was too weird to call my aunts insects.

today jackson and i were taking the dog for a walk. he gets a serious, contemplative look on his face and says, "monster can poop outside. monster's a dog. i can't poop outside. i'm not a dog." apparently this is how he differentiates himself from the canine species.

So cute!

I sometimes wonder if our cats have similar thoughts when they watch me on the toilet.

Prior to eating his dinner, Blasto said the following:

"Momma, my tongue is ready to rock n' roll!" followed by making guitar noises.
