I may have the funniest kids in the country. I love it! Here are some of the summer’s best quotes.
Zach: “I’m done with my wake-up nap now.”
Me: “What’s a ‘wake-up nap?'”
Zach: “It’s when you’re talking but you still need to be woken and after a little you’re awake. It’s a wake-up nap, Mom.”
Ellie: “Flour comes from the mill. The farmer takes it to the mill and they turn it into flour.”
Me: “That’s right! Where did you learn that?”
Ellie: “Oh, I just had it in mind. I’m really smart — are I’m?”
Zach: “I was sinking that we should — ”
Ellie: “Zach. It’s not SINKing; it’s DINKing! Hear that T-H sound? Dink. Dink, dink, dink.”
Ellie, singing: “A-O mountain high, A-O valley low, A-O river wide in love. If you need me, call me, no matter where you are, no matter how far.”
Zach, also singing: “‘Cause babies say A-O mountain high in love! A-O mountain low in love! A-O river wide in love to keep me from getting to you!”
Ellie: “Can we go to Disney God Tom today?”
Translation: Can we visit Disney.com?
Zach: “You gotta look!! I did a pepper-salt!”
Translation: I did a somersault.
Ellie: “Mom, you make a really nice waitress.”
Zach: “Bye-bye, peepee! Have a great adventure! (Then in a higher, funny voice) I will! I’ll send you a picture! Bye-bye, you silly boy! (Back to his normal voice) Ha ha! I miss you already!”
Me: “Ellie, you are insufferable.”
Ellie: “You mean I’m a genius.”
