Back to PreK

Luke was singing the alphabet song and halfway through stopped and said, "Oh no - I forgot the words."

That Seems Backwards

We always go to Sonic on Fridays and the boys get slushes. I tend to sample their drinks before passing back to them.
Yesterday I started to take a sip of Ryan's and he yelled, "Don't drink mine - I think I have a cold!"

Future Interrogator

I just heard Luke say to his friend, "I know you're lying! You broke eye contact with me!"

Fine Art

Don's work uses video phones often and when he takes a call this way, the other person always chuckles.  It hit him today that there must be something in the view of the camera and he finally realized what it is.

We were in his office early in the summer and Luke did a little white board art for him!

There's a Party We Haven't Done

Got a chuckle today in Walmart when there was an overhead announcement for "someone from the Jones party please return to the pharmacy."
Luke was with me and said, "That's weird. Why would you have your party at Walmart?"

Math Skills

Luke just told me that he's 7 1/2. I said he was actually older than that and he replied, "I'm 7 and 5 quarters?!"

For Undercover Reasons?

From Luke... "If I ever get a fake ID, it's gonna say my name is Phil Bummersnazzle."

Summer is Brain Free

Just heard Ryan ask Andrew, "How do you spell Phoenix? I'm not using my brain right now..."

Fast and Furious

Andrew was driving us to the pool in the golf cart. I was already nervous since he's not quite the best driver yet. Then I hear him ask, "You think I can drift in this?"

Learning Through Sickness

Ryan wasn't feeling good recently but I had to leave him home while I took Andrew for a golf lesson. Here is the text stream that went on between us while I was out…

I'm feeling a lot worse.
I through up.
Sorry - I can't get home yet though. Lay down and we'll be home as soon as lesson is over.
FYI - it's "threw" up
I don't care
You should always want to learn
Now I have a fever
What is it?
The ibuprofen should start working soon. Drink more water!
I THREW up again
At least you're learning!

I wasn't too thrilled for him to have a phone but his texting usually leaves me giggling...

He Kids You Not

Luke said this to me earlier...
"I'm not even kidding.
This teacher at school,
I'm not even kidding,
She teaches kindergarten,
I'm not even kidding,
She's taught for...
I'm not even kidding,
25 years!
I'm. Not. Even. Kidding.

No Thank You

Out of the blue, Luke asked me, "If someone wants to marry you, do you have to say yes to them?"
He seemed overly relieved when I told him no.

So Tired and So Funny

Luke was laughing hysterically for no reason so Andrew asked, "Do you have the tired willies?" Ryan let him know the phrase is really "sleepy sillies."

Steve Should Change His Name

Luke was reading names of famous LA Dodgers at the spring training game we went to.
Luke: Steve Gravy
Me: Nope that says Steve Garvey.
Luke: Garvey's a dumb name. Gravy is awesome!

Larry and the Banana

Inside joke but I want the boys to remember how funny it was at the time...
At breakfast on vacation, a guy jumped in front of a couple waiting for our breakfast table. The lady turned to her husband and in a very Jersey voice, said, "Laaaaaary, that guy just sat at the table! With a banana!!"

That's What Dirt Looks Like?

Driving to vacation, we were out of Oklahoma and came up on some dirt fields. Andrew asked if there had been a fire there and we said we didn't know but it didn't look like it. He asked, "So why is the dirt so dark?"
Guess he's pretty accustomed to the red dirt of home...

The Staler the Better

I was handing Luke a snack to take to school and he looked at what I was giving him and said, "I don't really want those. They don't taste good."
I told him I just bought them and they were fine.
He replied, "That's why I don't like them. I don't like them when they're fresh."
The best part is that the snack I offered him was a box of raisins. Strangely enough he does like grapes...

Ultimate Fighting

I commented on the bright headlights on the plane flying above us and Ryan said, "That's not a plane - it's a helicopter."
Luke looked up and yelled, "It's a UFC!"

He Really Wants an Afro

Luke: "I have bad hair. One part is straight. And one part has a big hill."

How Do You Think He Really Feels

I ate a bunch of junk yesterday and had a pretty awful stomach ache. I was being a bit dramatic and Don said, "Boys - I think mom is in labor. She's gonna have a baby!"
Ryan yelled, "Yay!"
Luke yelled, "Yay!"
Andrew groaned, "UGH!"
