A treasury of sayings...

Get ready folks. This is great material! Kids say the funniest, cutest and most random things. This first bit is what he wanted to write to his teacher who moved away last week.
"I love you. Please have a good day moving. And I'll send you a love card. And I hope you like our present we have for you and I hope you'll love me, too. Love, Aiden"

The next series of quotes is within a ten minute time frame two nights ago. My children were sitting at the table having homemade choc. chip cookies and milk. Izzy had water. Aiden and Emma had been dipping their cookies and eating them when Aiden appears overwhelmed and says,"I gotta take a drink! I get teared out! It means I need to eat lunch..."

Random but it's so true I wrote it down to preserve it!

The next begins with Izzy.
Izzy:Mom, take my lid off. I want to dip my cookie, too!
Aiden:You can't dip your cookie in water, Izzy. It will melt!
Izzy:It will melt in your milk, too!
Aiden:See, Izzy, the milk gets it's power from the chocolate chip and the cookie...
Emma:It's nice that you think that, Aiden, but it's not really true. That was neat, but it's not true...

Then we head directly to the bathroom to brush teeth before bed and I catch Aiden trying to get a drink in the bathroom with his hands. He does not need one more thing to drink before bedtime! So I say,"Son! You don't need more to drink!"
And he yells,"It helps me to concentrate!"

I don't believe I can sum life up any better than that...

now.... I can't be sure as I've only known you Woods kids for a short while (in the grand scheme of things) and that Ben guy I think I met once or twice... but I'm pretty sure that your kids are just like a certain other 3 Woods kids... just a guess.

Emma's "that's nice, Aiden" is SOOO Tara....

woTara, the picture that appears after you comment here makes met hink of a poster at a nail salon advertizing long, red, acrylic fingernails... except of course it's missing the picture of your nails. Is this a compliment? I don't know. I just needed to tell you.

Jen, your kids are hilarious... recently we were in the loft and Ella told us she wanted to go downstairs because sher was "just tired a lookin at mom." ouch
