Me: If I hear one more argument, you're going to your rooms for the rest of the evening.
Me: Eli, you're not the boss of your sister.
Me: Amelia, you don't have to have a sound coming from your mouth every second you're awake. Sometimes Mom's ears need a break.
Me: I really need to write things down...I keep forgetting what the kids say!
Eli: I like meatballs. They make me toot.
Papa: I'm tired tonight. I think I'm going to sleep in bed with you tonight.
Eli: No, you'll keep me awake because you snore too much; you make too many sounds.
Papa: How do you know?
Eli: 'Cause I got up to go potty in the night and I heard you.
Eli: MOM! I killed a spider in my room. I need a tissue to pick it up and put it in the trash.
Me: Good job, Eli. Here ya go.
Eli: (as he walks off) I'm a brave little boy!
Eli: I was on the playground and I fell and cracked my muscle.
Me: Sorry to hear about that. Which muscle? On your arm?
Eli: No, Mom. On my muscle!
Eli: (telling Papa later that evening) I ripped my muscle!
Eli: I had cauliflower and broccoli last night. I want to play hockey with my Dad and show him how much stronger I am!
Papa: (while blocking Eli in the hallway) What's the password?
Eli: I love you Daddy!
Amelia: I know what we can do. We can pray to my God.
Eli: The one true God is everyone's God.
Both kids right now: Shakalakalaka, shakalakalaka, shakalakalaka
Yep. Been a bit silly around here!
