A few morsels that I have either overheard or been a part of this week.
Colton - See those seagulls over there, Mommy? The fat one's a girl.
Me - How do you know that?
Colton - Because, girls get fat like that.
Me - All of them?
Colton - Yeah, when they're pregnant!
Me - What do you know about being pregnant?
Colton - Just what Harley told me. That girls get fat when they're pregnant 'cause there's a baby in their tummy.
Little Girl at Swim Lessons (walks up to our table) - Hi Colton!
Colton - Hey. (acting very cool)
Me - Who's that, bud?
Colton - Oh, that's Sally from preschool.
Chance - Is she your girlllllllllfriend??
Colton (not missing a beat) - Chancey, I totally broke up with her before school got out.
Chance - Mommy, why are adults always on diets?
Me - Well, a lot of folks have eaten more bad foods than they should have, and probably weigh more than they want to weigh and be healthy.
Chance - But they keep going on them, and they don't work.
Me - Tell me about it!
Chance - I think they need a Dave Ramsey for dieters.
~Side note - Dave Ramsey is a financial counselor that we subject Chance and Colton to on the radio periodically. He has truly turned our financial lives around, and is household name around our place. At one point, Chance said he didn't want our town to get a Target (knowing how much I love Target), cause we'd have to listen to that Dave guy even more!!
Watching the Olympics
Colton - Mommy, is that girl from America?
Me - Yeah.
Colton - Good, 'cause America Rocks.
Me-Chance, do you want to go with your dad & Colt to ride the combine?
Chance - Do I have to?
Me - No, but you are invited.
Chance - Mom, I'm not really a "farming kind of kid". I'd rather stay home.
As we watch the USA Medley Relay team fight for Michael Phelp's 8th Gold
Matt - Swim! Swim faster! Go! Swim! SWIM! SWIMMMMMM!
Colton - Daddy, you know they can't hear you,right?
