Larsen upon eating his tostada at dinner last night (with all seriousness): Wow, great idea to cut this lettuce with your paper shredder Mom!
Anders (while showing me his very full tummy after eating four tostados): Look Mama! I am going to have TWO babies! One boy and one girl! Really, I don’t think I am pretending.
Larsen: Whoever invented the parts of speech must have had a very boring life. Personally, I’d like to shoot him with my Nurf gun, even though I’d get my gun taken away for pointing it at a person because I know people are to be treated with dignity. But, if anyone deserves it, it is the inventor of grammar.
Anders: The hamsters get to stay up all night. Pretend I am a hamster, Mama. Just say “sure!”.
Anders: I like to just wear my underwear outside! (I explained he could not, then the next day we went to the beach. He and I were walking on the shoreline and an older gentlemen with a large physique stepped in front of us, in a speedo) Look Mama! That guy is wearing his underwear and it doesn’t even have a picture on it! He wears his underwear outside! And look, he is going to have a baby too! A really big baby!
Larsen: What does eccentric mean? Isn’t that what you think Dad is? Or maybe I am referring to eclectic or electric. Maybe you think Dad is all those things too.
One Reply to “My boys say the silliest things…”
My Cameron wholeheartedly agrees with Lars on the guy who invented grammar. Only he wishes he could use something other than a nerf gun! =)
