Quotes for the Week

These are a few of my favorite family quotes this week:



"Oh my soul and garters!" --my 74-year-old mother, commenting on S's Lego creation.


"I will never brake your heart!" --written by my 1st grader on the Valentine he brought home to me yesterday.


"I fart. No, you fart." --my 3-year-old son to S's violin teacher at violin lessons yesterday. [Sorry, ~j, I know you don't like that particular "f" word. I don't like it either, but the child gets "tutored" by his oldest brother.]




And finally, in honor of Valentine's Day:


"I do not want anything that's been printed on a 6-year-old's underwear." --my 10-year-old son, upon being questioned last night about why Superman Valentines were unacceptable.

Oh great! Now you tell me after I bought the Superman Valentines.

Your 10-year-old cracks me up. This is the same kid who will balance his scriptures on top of his head and sit in Meditation Pose while the rest of primary sings "Scripture Power." Brilliant.

Here's another quote to add to your collection. From my 14-year-old:

"Mom, I need you to read and sign this, yadda yadda, you know the drill."

All good, but the last one is brilliant!

I just read he is a finalist in the science fair. Smart kid!

Must take after his mom.

You just never know what will come out of a child's mouth! My inlaws were over the other day and my seven-year-old told my father-in-law that my husband "tooted" (I don't like the "f" word either) the other day and it sounded like "rocks fell out of his butt"! Lovely, I know.

Those are so funny! I'm going to use the "Oh my soul and garters!" if you don't mind.

The Daredevil Mom said...

cari--- "rocks fell out of his butt"!!!! OH MY WORD. I'm laughing so hard right now, my side hurts!


becks--- The only news I got about the spelling bee was when my B~ called me to say she got fifth place. *proud mom*

My kids were taught by their older cousin today, that if anyone tries to kidnap them, they are supposed to do the 3 P's. Poop, Pee, or Puke.
I like the lesson. It's good to teach kids to fight back at all costs. I don't like the presentation.

Do skid marks come from rocks falling out of one's butt?

Sarah said...

That's deep for a ten year old!

Queen Scarlett said...

Your 10-year old is hilarious. He needs his own show.

...and love your Grandma's quote. We need to bring garters back...or at least saying garters.

Melody said...

Sorry, but I happen to love the f word... I often use it as a term of endearment, as in, "For a small fee I will take that little 10-year-old fart off your hands just for the pleasure of his comedic sense."

I know he comes with other qualities that I might tire of, but, Jules, he is a jewel! Love your others too.
