The four year old asked me if he could eat the fresh cranberries in the kitchen. I said no, they’re too sour plain and I am making them into cranberry sauce. He thinks for a moment and with a contemplative air states that cranberry sauce is a little sweet and sour. After what I presume was a pause for dramatic effect and a look of epiphany he says, “These would be good in barbecue sauce.”
I see the invention of cranberry barbecue sauce in our near future.
The kid found some candy this morning and asked grandma if he could have it. She said no. His response:
"Can you at least put it somewhere else where I can’t see it?"
"I want to go to space. We could build a rocket. Oh, but we don’t have parts. I bet we could buy them online, though."
Yup. My three year old wants to source rocket parts from Amazon.
I tell my son he has to wait when he asks for the thousandth time if we’re going to California yet.
He leaves and returns moments later staggering under the weight of a dumbbell and drops it near my feet saying “Here”.
Can’t decide if he just reached smartass level: infinite or he’s really, really literal.
"Mama, you’re a midget. That’s okay, I’m a midget, too. I still love you." Garrett, 3
"Your lady muscles are awesome, Mom." Caira, 7
And why yes, lady muscles are awesome. And I have no idea where my son got the whole midget thing. I maintain we are petite. Petite, dammit.
