...the mouths of babes!

Here's what the kiddos had to say this week:
Jefferson is always interested in anything military these days. When watching "The Water Horse", a movie set during WWII, he sees an Allie plane fly past.

J: "What kind of plane is that?"
Me: "It's from the war back in 1942."
J: "What team is it on?"

(You mean ... the good guys who won the war?")

When we were trying to get some probiotic powder down his throat:

J: "I'm never, ever, ever going to have it with honey again! You know what it makes it taste like - the after taste?"
Me: "No, what?"
J:"Like a tire or something!"

(I thought some one once said, "A spoonful of sugar.....?")

Reagan (5): "Daddy, there's too many green beans....I want you to cut them!"
Jefferson (6.5): "But Rae! If you cut them, there will be more!"

(Ah, yes...looking out for the benefit of his sister. We wouldn't want too many green beans, now!)

...and just how does a tire taste? *wink darn probiotics.

We sprinkle the quarsatine (sp?) on applesauce. Luckily that stuff doesn't appear to taste too bad.

Happy TTT! Enjoy some "more or less" green beans tonight!

That's funny. I can just see the wheels spinning in J's active little mind! "Aftertaste" is such a grown up concept - that's too much!
