    Life is hard, man. C dissolved into tears when he opened his after school cereal bar and it broke in half. He had both pieces, but it broke.

    Yesterday when I picked him up he was (as usual) sitting at the Lego table building a plane. There were a couple other kids there, too (popular place!). I asked him about his plane and if he was finished with it so we could go home. He tells me "That kid asked me what my name is."
    Me: Did you tell him?
    C: No.
    Me: Well, ok, it's your choice if you don't want to tell him I guess.
    C: Yeah, it's MY choice. I don't want him to know my name.
    Me: Maybe he's just trying to be nice and be your friend though. He likes legos too!
    C: A is my best friend!
    Me: But you had other friends at school too, like E and (another) A.
    C: But A is my best friend still, and E and A!

    Kid beside us at the airport pulled a topping off his dad’s pizza: What’s this?
    Dad: a mushroom
    Kid: is it spicy?
    Dad: no
    Kid: ok (eats it)
    Repeat.

    Fry had an evaluation today. One prompt was to take a doll and throw her a birthday party with play dough cake and then put her to bed.
    Doctor: “The baby wants to go to bed now, she’s sleepy!”
    Fry: “No. The baby wants cake.”
    “No, the baby wants to sleep.”
    “No. The baby wants cake.”

    I don’t think he’s wrong.

    Seems there are bats living near our new house too (yay!). Saw some flitting about the other night and showed C, who thinks it's super cool too. Then last night we get home from dinner with the IL's super late, so it's dark out.
    C: Let's look for bats!
    Me: Well, it's really late, they might not be out still. Bats come out when it's half-dark and we can see them.
    C: But bats come out when butts glow!
    Me: What.
    C: The bugs whose butts light up!
    Me: Oh. Lightning bugs!
    C: Yeah! Look, glow butt!
    :bat:

    At a water park, watching M describe me to a stranger when she didn’t know I was watching her (she wasn’t terrified, just making chit chat with another mom):

    Other Mom: What kind of suit is your mommy wearing? One piece? Or two pieces?
    M: Underwear on the bottom. Boobies on top.

    D installed a motion switch in the mud room a couple nights ago.
    C this morning walking in there to get his shoes, as the light turns on: “thank you light!”

    I heard a loud thud from the living room.
    Me: "What are you climbing on?"
    S: "Anything"
    Me: "What?"
    S: "Anything"
    Me: You mean "nothing"?
    S: Yeah, nothing!

    He's a really bad liar :lol:

    I can't even type the entire convo out, because it was so long, but this morning before school, G asked me if T-Rex's are nice and if he can go see them at the zoo. My dumb ass tried to kidsplain the concept of extinction, and long story short it's 45 minutes of my life I will never get back.

    "Yes they're nice and you can see them at the zoo" was the right answer.

    Those are my favorite questions now, though, when J asks if something is "real" . . . meaning does it exist today.

    Rooster was eating a slice of cake and gave Fry a bite. He clearly wanted more.
    Rooster: “Say ‘daddy, may I have another bite of cake please?’”.
    Fry: “Daddy, may I have the rest of the cake please?”

    My dad, sister's fiance, and B went fishing yesterday afternoon, and B caught the only fish. They brought it home and grilled it (had a bunch of filets, and the head separate). C was enthralled and kept wanting to show everyone the "fishie!"

    "Pops! Fishie!" Ran to the grill to show my dad the fish cooking.

    "Mommy! Fishie!" Brought me to the grill to show me the fish.

    B did some dog sitting for a family friend and she dropped off a cheque for him today. He turned it around in his hands and said,
    So....how do I turn this into money??
