6: I hurt my arm at school today.
Me: How did you do that?
6: By playing so powerfully. I’m one of the most best players.
Hubs to 6: How many kids are you going to have?
6: 800,000. 61, 62, 63, 64, 65, 66 . . . Elizabeth1, Elizabeth2, Elizabeth3, Elizabeth4 . . .
Talking about a kid at school:
6: If we were born on the same day, since we were born at the same time, we would be twins!
I had to explain to him that that is not quite how “twins” work.
Closing his eyes and tilting his head back and forth:
Me: What are you doing?
6: I’m doing exercises. And I have a girl in my head doing it with me. She does it and I follow.
Me: Who’s the girl?
6: Just some random kind of girl. I can’t even see her face. Just her pink suit.
Re: The Northern Lights
6: It’s like when you go through the second part of the car wash. Or like all the colors of the monkeys jumping on the bed game. Except for orange, of course.
Talking about a girl in the neighborhood . . . and another boy:
6: That’s her boyfriend.
Me: Wow, there are a lot of dating kids in this neighborhood.
6: Yeah, and I’ve wanted to go play with them, but every time I do, they just play with each other.
I’m just gonna let that one go . . .
6: I wouldn’t want to jump out of that helicopter into those mountains. Cuz that could really hurt your back! Unless the mountains had cotton balls on them.
6: Who is another superhero besides Abraham Lincoln?
Me: Abraham Lincoln wasn’t a superhero. He was a president.
6: Yes he was! He ended slavery. If not for him, there’d still be slaves and that would be a bad thing. Also, firefighters are superheros because they save people. They are real life heroes!
Now how exactly can I argue with that logic? Vampire hunter AND superhero!
Me: Eyelashes protect your eyes.
4: OR . . . they can protect them from monsters. Like if monsters run up to you.
Watching Dancing with the Stars . . . of course.
4: Are the girl with the white dress and guy with the black shirt married?
Me: No, they just dance together.
4: But she’s wearing a married princess dress!!!
4: Do you know where the angry birds store is?
Me: No, do you?
4: Well, maybe it’s in the last part of Maryland. Or Hawaii.
