Overheard this week...TT #4

1. "She looks like Quasimodo with that bump on her back." (in reference to our cat, who has developed a strange knot on her spine)

2. "Blah, blah, blah, blah, blah..." (our youngest has adopted this when someone carries on too long about an injustice)

3. "K, do that thing with your 'nibbles' like The Rock does with his." (from my son after watching her roll her stomach, he decided he wanted her to bounce her pecs like Dwayne Johnson in "The Gameplan")

4. "Can we make school short so I can play Monkeyball banana splits?" (again, my's a request I hear daily, to no avail. And the game is called Super Monkey Ball Banana Blitz.)

5. "Do I look harp?" (asked daily by youngest once she is dressed - 'harp' = 'sharp'.)

6. "What IS that smell?" (uh...K...clean the cat's litterbox, please.)

7. "Thou shalt not kill." (when asked what the Bible says about how we should treat our brothers and sisters)

8. "Oh my darlin, oh my darlin, oh my darrrrlin, what's yer name?" (youngest's version of "clementine" as sung by Huckleberry Hound)

9. "Tell me just ooooone more story and sing me just ooooone more song?" (a nightly plea from two youngest at bedtime - simply a stall tactic)

10. "Mama, your tummy is so soft like a pillow."
"You shouldn't tell mama that - it's just that she eats too much and doesn't get enough exercise." (conversation between two youngest)

11. "Look, mama! My hope is floating!" (youngest in the tub, referring to a bar of ivory soap - 'so pure it floats')

12. "Mama, how come you taste the pages before you turn them?" (son, referring to my habit of licking my fingers to turn the pages)

and finally...
13. "This is a picture of an octopus. It has eight testicles and a very sharp beak." (my eldest reading from a science book to her brother and sister)
