I Hear

Funny or just plain precious things I never want to forget…

When you drink a lot of pop, it makes your brain happy.

A conversation on Skyler’s upcoming birthday:
MOM: How old are you, Skyler?
SKYLER: Like, three.
MOM: And what are you going to be on your birthday?
SKYLER: Umm…Batman!
– Skyler, age 3
………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

Savanna stole Skyler’s chair just to bug him. The follow conversation ensued:
MOM : Savanna, remember when Skyler was a baby? You were so nice to him. Why
can’t you treat him like that anymore?
SAVANNA : Because back then he smelled like a baby. Now he smells like fried chicken.
– Savanna, age 8

In the car, Savanna said she wanted to be a vet when she grows up. So I ask…
MOM: Skyler, what do you want to be when you grow up?”
SKYLER: Hmm…I think a doctor.
MOM: Wow! That’s great, Skyler.
SKYLER: Yeah, a doctor…or…a McDonald’s guy.
***(SILENCE)***
SKYLER: Yeah, definitely like a McDonald’s guy.
– Skyler, age 4

As I was leaving for work…
MOM: Bye, Brooklyn.
BROOKLYN: Bye!
MOM: I love you.
***(SILENCE)***
MOM: Say, “Love you.”
BROOKLYN: Love me!
– Brooklyn, 24 months

Savanna brought home 3 cookies from church and said to me:
SAVANNA: One for you, one for Skyler and one for Brooklyn. There’s a crushed one. I think YOU’D like that one, Mom.
– Savanna, age 7

Skyler comments on his baby sister:
SKYLER: Mom, Brooklyn stinks!
MOM: Okay, thanks. I’ll change her.
SKYLER: It stinks REAL bad.
(As I pulled off her pants, we discovered that the diaper didn’t quite do it’s job. Skyler took one look at her and said…)
SKYLER: Yep! I knew it! She had a gas leak!
– Skyler, age 5
