QOTD: B (teary): "My shoes stepped on my fingers!"
hearing Berean say things about cutting people's heads off, I sat down
with the boys to try to figure out where she was getting this stuff. I
asked them if they had been talking like that or if one of their shows
used that terminology. They said that they hadn't been and then Deacon
said, "it is from our history, Mom." Yup, we have been reading about
Henry VIII, Bloody Mary and Queen Elizabeth...she is apparently paying
more attention than I thought.
In the 5 minute drive home Deacon used the words "protocol", "discern" and "stimulating" in conversation. I love that kid!
B: "Roman, if you don't share your Christmas present, God will put you
out of my family!" R: "yeah, right" B: "Or at least God will tell you
that you have sinned!" oh brother...
N: "You are a couple of beautiful girls."
B: "Yes, but Ever is not so cute anymore now that she spilled sausage

N: "She's still cute."

if Sonic the Hedgehog has his own Wiki page".
home from work to find little Ever, decked out in ONLY her winter coat,
hat and boots waiting by the door. "Go", she said, and pointed out the
door. Don't think Noah will be able to run his errands without his
little buddy today!
(overheard) R: "we really need our own theme song." L: "you mean like a
'B---- Boys' theme song?" (pause) R: "yes, we definitely need our own
B: "Can I have more Fruit Loops? I can't find any more on the floor to eat."
N: "We're having pancakes for lunch?"
B: "With blueberries in them?"
N: "No, sorry, I don't have any blueberries."
B: "Then why are we doing this?"
N: "Why did Martin Luther nail the 95 theses to the church door?"
D: "Because he didn't like the church accepting money for their projects in exchange for going to heaven."
N: "What's the name for that?"
D: "A scam?"
