overhead at my house

Congratulations, Jeannette! Our may giveaway winner!! Like bottlecaps always say: Sorry, you're not a winner. Try again. The June giveaway stars June 1st with a new crop. I wish you could all be winners-
Consider it qualitative research documenting the comedy of home life. Here's the May edition of overheard at our house!

"get milking!" 2 yr old to his hungry baby brother
"uh-oh I broke it", two year old says semiremorsefully.
"please put it back in the can and don't play with it again," exasperated mother.
"don't worry I won't, it's broken!?!, " total serious 2 yr old.

"stop playing and Poop!" mom to child.

"please don't tong my bum" by mom after being goosed with salad tongs

"the first time I read it, it totally gave me the snickers" by 7 yr old after reading the stinky cheese man book

"I am drawing atoms" two year old to 7 yr old. "Wow that's really good for a two year old. But did you know most people thing atoms are the smallest particles, but the smallest particles are quarks- but not corks like in a bottle" 7 yr old to two year old.

when asked to write a sentence using the word many my 7 yr old wrote:In the Philippines, there are many shiny jeepneys.
when asked to write a sentence using the word bugle my 7 yr old wrote:Humans can create bugle playing robots.

when asked to write a more descriptive word for house: "villa" (No we don't live in the Italian countryside?)
when asked to write a more descriptive word for man: "pops" (what is this the late 50s?)
"would you like some crackers for snack?" (mom)
"Actually I'd like banana bread, but you could bring me crackers as an appetizer?" (7 yo)
