Liam: Crackers are scrumptious because they’re so cracky.
In discussing the possibility of Victoria being born on Liam’s birthday:
Me: Do you want Victoria to share a birthday with you?
Liam: No. I’ve been thinking about this. If two people in the same house have the same birthday at the same time, then one will have to go to a different house with their mom or dad so they can have a birthday.
Ariana is the queen of giving “Sunday School answers (God! Jesus!)” to almost all of Bill’s questions over dinner.
Bill: How was sin different in Noah’s day than today? (real answer is there was no difference)
Ariana: I don’t know. Jesus!
To show the pattern of this, over dinner one night the real answer was “God.” We realized then how closely Miriam listens to her big sister.
Bill: Who created all things?
Miriam (immediately following): Jesus!
I always love my kids understanding of relationships.
Ariana: When Liam gets big, he’ll have to marry a different mommy who doesn’t have a husband.
Telling Daddy about his zoo trip:
Liam: We saw the polar bears, and there was a man who was feeding them fish. We’ll call him The Man Who Feeds Fish to Polar Bears.
While at the park:
Ariana: Look at the gooses!
(Bill and I chuckle at the cuteness of her statement)
Ariana (trying to justify her term): That’s what I call a group of gooses.
