overheard early summer edition

Kid quotes are kind of like home movies, entertaining only for related by blood, but torturous for all others. So do pardon as I record our recent funnies here so my boys can appreciate them when they are older. (PS does my son not bear strong resemblance to an image in this collage?)

"My gravity won't let me get up there" as stated by my 3 year old trying to jump up to get something placed out of his reach.

"Look mom its Earth, my home planet!" by 3 year old holding a giant marble that looks like the Earth.

"Mom those spit roasted silkworm pupas look just like what we had at that Middle Eastern restaurant!" (after looking at global foods in my hungry planet book, as much as he was hoping for the exotic I assured him the kafta kebab was beef) by 7 year old

"For Christmas. I 'd like boosters for my bike filled with jet fuel, I know they might be expensive, and you'll probably say really unrealistic, but they would sure make me go fast." by 7 year old.

"You don't need a ziploc a fold over bag will do"- said by mom (baggie Nazi) to son gratuitously using a ziploc (did I really say that? we tightly control those ziplocs here!)

"That was fast- it take less time to drive home from the Indian grocery store, than it does to eat a bowl of ice cream, but about as much time as it takes to make a cup of hot chocolate"- 7 yr old (yes we tell time in ice cream consumption increments in this family)

"I'll have none of that Naan" -3 yr old half jokingly half contemptuous delighting in his alliteration in attempts to get out of going to Indian grocery store.

"Congratulations!!!, (insert #2s name) you slept in to 9:05 that's later than anyone in our family ever! "7yr old commending his 3 yo brother, who beams with pride!

If only gravity didn't hold us down! Oh the things we could do...

Somehow your kids comments are much more scientific and have more of an indian food flavor than any I've heard around here. So funny.

I love the older brother congratulating the younger. Hilarious how they commend each other!

You must document all you can. You can then look back and see were their personalities came from. Does that make sense?

Those were very cute! Your kids are such deep thinkers! My kids's quotes rarely go beyond arguments.
