Quotables.

Leaving a store, a mother was reprimanding her two children. "Why would you behave like that?" The mother strongly stated. Miss M, turns to me and says. "Well the next time you ask me if I see other people misbehaving I can tell you that yep. It's not just us!"

A few weeks back I was teaching some community educations classes for 4-5 year olds. M was my "helper" for the week. As we sat around a make believe campfire eating smores the kids were chatting and M says, "Did you know that I've got two homes?". The kids all stared at her like she was the most interesting person they've ever met. "Yes it's true that all the best kids, they get two homes."

"Why would anyone have four kids?" T loudly asks as we pass by a woman shopping with her four kids. "Well T, we've already got three." I remind him. "Yeah, but you guys are kind of crazy."

Driving past a farm, M innocently asks; "When can we get a cow?"

"The reason I need a cell phone is so when you're driving, if I need to call someone, you don't have to reach back and hand me your phone. I can just use my own." T, on why we should buy him a cell phone. (Because #1 he uses the phone so much, and #2 even if he needed to use the phone, reaching behind me would be so much work.)

How I know we're doing an alright job as parents? Recently when T was giving me an attitude at the store and I ignored him rather than saying anything about it as we were driving home in the car he said; "S, I'm really sorry for acting like a jerk in the store. I shouldn't have been rude to you like that."

Samara, these are really funny. I burst out laughing at the quote about the cow. Just imagining a cow grazing in your lawn cracked me up!

LOVE the cow quote!

when my middle brother was around 6 or 7, he was simply fascinated with cows as well. passing farms on road trips he would beg to stop and "pet" them, and would ask that exact same question!

i'll never forget my father reminding him that we live in chicago, and asking him where he would keep a cow.

his response? "well, it could live in the attic"

thanks for sharing these!
