By Popular Demand (& My Mom) ...

You know how you love getting comments on your Facebook status updates? Well, I found that it was my updates involving my youngest son, 3-year-old Max, that were getting the most action, as it were. (What, no one cares about my bad hair days???) So, here you go, your instant resource of little person musings....& if you have a budding philosopher (or comedian) of your own, send their insights my way & I'll post them for all to enjoy!

Max & the Babysitter:

When we came home from our date night tonight, Max insisted on "writing" a note to their babysitter (a 6th grade girl)--"Is she your friend?" I asked. Max: "No." Me: "No? You don't like her?" Max: "No. I love her."

Max on Church:

"I love Jesus but I don't like going to have to wait so long before you can get donuts."

Max on monsters:

At bedtime last night, his brother and roommate was not there and so he was afraid to be alone. Max asked, "Mom, are monsters real?"
Me: "No, they're not. Um, but y'know there are wild animals like in the jungle or there can be bad people."
Max: "Like dogcatchers?"

Um, what are you feeding this kid??

The running commentary on the way home from preschool (where Max got plastic Easter eggs filled with jelly beans):

Opening up an egg carefully: "Nice and easy, boys. Nice and easy."

"Mom, the purple ones taste like strawberries, yeah. And the pink ones taste like M & M's. Oh, and the black ones taste like Starbucks! The blue ones taste like beer, yeah."

Jelly Belly Co.-- We've got some new flavors for ya!

1st Grade Grammar:

A conversation between my friend and her 1st grade daughter:
Mama: "Why are you bringing your Angel Reader to school?"

Lainie:  "Because we are studying contraptions at school and this book has them."

Mama: "What? There are contraptions in your book?"

Lainie: "Yup, you know: 'it's, don't, can't' -- CON-TRAP-TIONS!"

Independent Max:

T-shirt in hand, Max jumped on the bed waking me up this morning. "I'm going to put this on all by myself!" Serious pause: "Oh, I hope this works!"
