Kids were all in the basement playing and they asked Emily if she would be the monster. Emily told the kids she was too tired so Peter said “you’re already drunk!”
P: mommy! Let the car drive by itself! Is it driving by itself?
M: No- cars don’t drive themselves.
P: Why not? Daddy’s sprayer does…
Peter runs up to me with a nickel he found on the floor…
P:Mom! Can I buy you a really big present with this money?
M: What do you want to buy?
P: I want to buy you a new camera! With this coin! I’ll give the money to dad so he can buy it.
D:(while looking at the Cabellas flyer gets to a page of guns and jokingly says…) I’m going to buy myself some guns.
P: But don’t shoot an elephant…
D: I don’t think I would be shooting any elephants around here.
P: Because elephants are funny!
The other evening we were getting out of the car and there was a definite smoke smell in the air. As I was getting Peter out of the car I said “Phew! It smells” and he said “Smells nice!”. “Smells nice?” I said. “Yah it smells like…..SUNSET!”
Peter is getting to be a bit stubborn lately. He gets these ideas in his head and nothing we say can dissuade him. Yesterday the kids went to the basement to look for some Kraft Dinner and they didn’t find any so he dragged a boxed waffle maker upstairs and declared he was having waffles for lunch.
M: Peter – I’m sorry but I’m not making waffles for lunch.
P: I’ll make them myself! How do you get this out?! (He struggles to open the box and finally succeeds)
P: *examines the waffle maker* Mom! how do you get the waffles in?
M: Peter, how was your visit to the dentis?
M: Did she say you had nice teeth?
P: Yesno. She said I had BEAUTIFUL teeth!
