    Had to add some sillies from when my DS was between 3-4 (i am one of those moms who keeps journals)

    ..picture DS going into the bathroom and things getting very quiet then a loud shout goes through the house, "Mommy, my intestines are now empty!"

    ...another bathroom comment when he was 3 - sitting with daddy in the bathroom and he very proudly looks up at Daddy and said, "Houston, we have a problem...it's stuck." I still remember my husband coming out of the bathroom about falling on the floor laughing.

    ..laying in bed, we have the best talks at night..out of the blue he asks, "Mommy, why is my ceiling flat when our roof is triangle shaped?"

    My addition to this great thread:

    My dd at about 3 years old

    ..In response to my lack of panick when she informed me she was running away... "I can't believe you are letting me drive, I am just a kid..." I guess she figured she would need a car to really go far.

    ....Another run away moment..."Can't you see I can't open the door yet? Can you please open it for me?"...

    My son's daycare lady has her late husbands old rusty truck parked on the side of her driveway at her house. Last week DS2.5 goes running into her house and says, "Oh no B, you need to get your truck out of the rain!! Your wheels are oxidizing."

    I have to remind myself of these things when I am having my denial moments!

    I have another one. We were on vacation with gramps and grammy. DS4 is excitedly telling gramps something, and he says, "whoa, slow down. gramps is old. you need to talk slowly to me so I can understand." DS4 obliges. A few minutes later, he's back to speed talking, telling me something. Gramps says, "hey, did you forget about talking slowly?" DS4 looks at him, irritated, and says, "I was talking to mom!" tee hee. gramps said that made the 9 hour plane trip worth it.

    Oooh Avatar Envy!!

    Yeah, I like here, too. Partly, I like to eat and I love corn on the cob, but mainly, I like that impish look in her eyes--you know she's scheming something!
