Silas greeted friends at house last night by saying "Hi! Hi! You so pretty! I shake my booty at you!"
And he did. A lot.


I love Silas so much. We need video of this.

Silas, you are awesome.

<3 He also introduced himself as "Silas is an sssssssss sound like snake" and made a T out of blocks when Tisha said her name. He was a real ham that night.

He amazes us everyday with how social and silly he is, after such a long spell of worrying that he'd never communicate & connect with people. All of these things that seem normal ate just a huge thing for him :)

Everyone knows the Cream song was Balls on Parade.

Tonight at supper, I was talking about having my review at work last week. GG told me he'd give me a score of 97.5 in "how good a dad" I am. Which makes me "pretty much the best dad in the hemisphere."

Ezzie showed his first bit of understanding veganism this weekend. He had spent Friday with his grandparents, and we asked him what he had to eat (soy yogurt, crackers, banana, pb&j). We asked him what Poppy (grandfather) had for lunch, and he replied with, "chicken" (first time I've heard him say that word, so it was a bit of a shock). Nate asked him if we ate chicken, and he shouted "Noo!" in this huge well-isn't-that-a-silly-question voice. He spent the rest of the day tearing around the house yelling, "Poppy, don't eat that chicken!" I'm wondering how life is going to be at the grandparent's house today...

So a couple of weeks ago my little boy, (who's six), starts talking about his religous philosopy. The conversation went something like this:


Little Buddy: I think maybe Jesus was a real man but I don't think God raised him from the dead. What is God? A necromancer? No. Actually, I think there is no God, or he is dead, because no one has seen him.

Me (kind of shocked): I can't argue with your logic Little Buddy.

Sorry if this offends Christians but no matter what your religous views I've got to think a little six year old Nietzschean who uses words like "necromancer" is funny.

I did not make this up.

Yes, yes I do :D

He has amazing powers of reasoning which curiously disappear when I attempt to use logic to convince him to do anything he doesn't want to do.

Funny, I'm the same way.

Overheard this evening, my very studious 7 year-old to her brother (and said very seriously), "I don't want to go to college. I just want to stay with mommy." To which my 13 year-old replied with an obnoxious teenage tone, "Are you serious? You're not going to college so you can stay home with mommy?" Beat. "Okay, I am going to college. I just want to stay with mommy."

Overheard at the farmers market
Kid, probably about 7, "I want one of those cookies"
Mom, "no, you haven't had dinner yet"
Kid, "ok"

That was amazing. My friend and I just looked at each other!

I have another. Just happened while watching "So You Think You Can Dance." After watching a quick segment on one of the contestants who was a pole dancer, 6 year-old daughther to 7 year-old, "Wow, we should do that." 7 Year old replies, "How are we going to do that? We don't have a pole!"

My nephew (9) was over and he's been expressing an interest in soccer (mostly watching), and since he basically never does anything physical and is glued to TV/videogames, we thought we'd try and talk him into playing soccer.

"I don't want to do things in life that make me tired."

Awh man! I mean, it's kind of more sad than darnedest, but the way he said it... Especially the 'in life'... I thought it was adorasad. Later he went on to tell us about his Star Trek video game and he accidentally said 'Cardashian' instead of 'Cardassian'. Heh.

Helping out with some nutrition classes at a day camp

Me to a counselor: Yeah, I'm vegan
Kid: I'm pisces!

Me to a kid: Why do you think it's important to eat food that comes from plants
Kid: If you don't eat food from plants you won't grow up and you will stay really small and then you might get stepped on because no one will see you.

I have a bazillion of these from my 2 year old niece. She is amazing. Like a tiny human tape recorder. She remembers everything you tell her.

Her mom: "tell Aunt Mack what the moon is made of."
Tiny niece: "Rock."
mom: "Tell Aunt Mack what the sun is."
Tiny niece: "Made of hydrogen gas." *she has since corrected this to hydrogen AND helium

"What do you want to be when you grow up?"
"A... a paleontologist."
"Really? Wow! What does a paleontologist do?"
"Fossils are bones that turned into rock."

(though the previous week the answer was "study dogs and cats", heeeeeeeeeeeeee)

She can also tell you how soap works. "You wash your hands, and the bacteria breaks open."

She is learning how the car works. She can tell you where you put the key (ignition), what the key turns on (starter motor) and what the starter motor starts (the engine), and what kind of reaction happens in the engine (combustion).

Last weekend my SIL told me about how she (my SIL) was listening to NPR in the car, & niece said "We're done listening to the news. Put on some music."

<3

The only bad part is she doesn't really get that other kids her age don't talk as much as she does, so she gets confused when they won't talk to her. "What your name is? WHAT YOUR NAME IS?????"

oh, I forgot:

niece: I'm CAPTIVATED by the mulch, Daddy.
BIL: I'm captivated by your use of the word captivated.

and when she'd been sitting next to me before dinner, and then Mr. Spork sat next to me during dinner. In the middle of dinner, out of nowhere she goes "SECOND OF ALL, that was MY chair." BAH. <3
