You know I love to catch my kids' quotes. Here are some recent favorites from over the summer.
A Brave Plan
After hearing horror stories from a scoutmaster about the obstacle course "of death," Dallin turned to his friend Broc and said,
"Okay, let's just try to run the best that we can and try not to get hurt, or die or anything."
Brandt turned to me while playing Angry Birds and said,
"Mom! I just did something so epic."
"You did?" I replied.
"Yeah. You should have seen it. It was really epic."
Like a Boss
"One time I was catching grapes [with my mouth] and it was so boss..."
After searching it out on the globe together Dallin looked at me and, as if revealing a great secret, said,
"Mom, did you know when I'm grown up I am going to climb to the top of Mount Everest?"
Like I Didn't Know
Brandt, in exasperation:
"Mom, didn't you know I know everything?
A Disturbing Pattern
"Why does everyone try to trick Mom?"
Caleb told Dallin,
"I'm so glad I'm not a cowboy when all they ate was bacon and beans."
During a minor argument with Adam, Brandt stated smugly,
"I'm cuter than all of you guys."
Dallin told me,
"Mom, just so you know, it's impossible to get tired of your cookies."
