We can throw boogies out the window.

October 31, 2008

Ben and Peyton and I were driving in the van and Ben had a piece of trash in his hand (candy wrapper). He asked me to open his window and I said, "Don't throw that trash out the window!" He said, "We only throw ??? out the window?" I could tell what he said so I replied, "We don't throw anything out the window." He said, "We can throw Boogies out the window?" I said, "Oh yes, we can throw boogies out the window."

guess I'm too fat

October 29, 2008

A few days ago I put on a pair of really thick joke glasses and asked Tyler and the boys if I looked like Professor Trelawny from Harry Potter. Tyler said I could dress up like her for Halloween. Micah said, "You'd have to lose A LOT of weight." Thanks Micah.

Because I'm so old now

October 29, 2008

Today, Micah and I (Daddy) were driving home from his first pack meeting as an "almost" cub scout. I told him he would be old enough to be an actual cub scout by his first den meeting next Wednesday since his birthday is next Tuesday. He perked up and said, "Wow, I didn't realize it was almost my birthday! That's because I'm getting old. I don't think about things all the time and get excited anymore because I'm so old now." (He's turning 8 next Tuesday). Oh, to be young(er) again!

Up on stage

October 27, 2008

Tonight I (Daddy) was helping Micah with his piano practice. I told him he was doing very well, which he was. He paused and somewhat matter of factly said, " Someday you're going to see me up on stage."

not old

October 27, 2008

This morning Tyler came into the boys room and asked Micah if he got his scarf caught in his bike a few days ago and Sis. Saunders had to help him. I said, "Oh, is that who helped him? I never found out who it was." Micah said, "I didn't know who it was either, just an old lady and an old man." I said, "Sis. Saunders isn't old." Micah said, "They had white hair and wrinkles on their faces."
