Overheard

A fly on the wall at our house this week might have heard...

"But you don't love me? 3yo A wondering why I won't marry him. I told him I already married Daddy. "Why?" asks he... "because I love him," say I. Get the picture? So cute I could have squished him with a hug!
____________________________
"Viper Viper Viper!!" Again, little A, while listening to the pastor quote John the Baptist calling the Pharisees a "Brood of Vipers." Can I get an "AMEN?"
____________________________
"Mom, we have a business for you to post on your blog!" 13yo S and 11yo C, coming to request some free advertising. By the way, if you are interested in a hand-crafted bow & arrow, made from sticks and rubber bands (like the one carried by Brave Sir Robin at Halloween) they can hook you up!
____________________________
"Has anybody seen my Polly Boy?" Umm... let's define terms... that's M (8yo) looking for the guy to her new Polly Pocket set. Apparently in the Polly world, as in real life, a good man is hard to find.
____________________________
I'm sure there were many other quotable moments this week, but my frazzled brain struggles to recall them. Why don't I write this stuff down?? (Umm - because my hands are full of apple peels, used napkins, math books, and - more often than not - a small person making a large noise! )

Now grab a cup of coffee and head over to Mary's place for more Tiny Talk.
