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.
