5 Year old son gets into car after preschool. Realizes that his DS has been on the entire time and batteries are dead.
"Lord Have MERCY I did NOT mean to do that!!!!"
(Lord have Mercy prounounced - Lloyd have Mewcy)
Getting 7 and 5 year old out of soccer clothes. 7 Year old being teased by 5 year old brother.
Me: "What are we going to do with him?"
Her: "I want to give him up!"
Me: "Who on earth would take him?"
Her: (after a pause to think about it) "Mimi"
At soccer practice tonight coach says something to my 9 year old that makes her grin. I ask after what she said:
(After repeatedly drilling the poor child in goal):
"Hey - let's start shooting at the corners and that way we don't kill anybody."
Same 9 year old telling me about playing soccer at recess with the boys. She said when they used to pick teams they would always pick her last.
Me: "When they used to pick teams?"
Her: (With a wicked gleam in her eye) "Yeah - they know better now - they don't do that anymore."
