Overheard Today...

Isaac, talking to Evie:

"This year, I'm going to have my twoth birthday, and Claire is going to have her oneth birthday!"

(Wrong on so many levels, buddy! And I don't know where this is coming from, since he knows his age and Claire's. Maybe those durn ordinal numbers are messing him up)

* * *
Claire, after going outside to play with the playdough she had left out overnight:
"Mama! (Dramatic pause to hit me with her horrified look) The play-playdough is DEAD!!!!"

(although she has left it out before, it usually doesn't dry out in our humid air)

Isaac had been worried over Vance leaving for the day...
Vance: "Guys, if you're worried, you don't have to freak out and start crying. You can just pray for me." (leaves)
Isaac: "God, I pray that you would take Daddy safely to work, and bring him home for lunchtime, please, so I can see him, then he can go back to work."
Claire: "God, I pray that you blessings to Daddy, and take him to the hospital, and help him to praise you, inJeeznameAmen."

(Apparently, Isaac needs a refresher course on "not my will but yours be done", and Claire needs to learn that the hospital is not the destination of choice for most people).

Just a few quotables from a day that's far from over. I wish I was better at getting them all down!

Terri, I have a small notebook on my kitchen counter to write down memorable quotes such as these. The bad thing is that on days when Novia is exceptionally quotable it's hard to get dinner made amidst the jotting.

Oh my goodness! Those are hilarious! It looks like you have a drama queen on your hands in the form of Claire! :)
