The Things They Say

Calvin has had us laughing lately. Here are a few of his funniest (and sweetest) lines:

While walking barefoot across hot pavement:
My feet are spicy.

Praying before breakfast this morning:
Dear God, rule over Teddy's heart and make him as happy as he can be.

When I served him a bowl of old-fashioned oatmeal:
This is good porridge.

After I told him we may not be able to go to the zoo because of the weather:
I heard on the blog it's not gonna rain.

The boys were crying and whining that daddy had to leave and go to work:
Me: That's what daddies do, boys. They go to work to make money for their families. And mommies take care of the children. When you grow up to be men, you will go to work, too.
Calvin: I don't want to grow up to be a man.
Me: Sure you do, Calvin!
Calvin: No, mama, I always want to be your boy.

(Okay, melt my heart...)

Right before I prayed for a meal:
Mama, will you pray and ask God to give me a wife when I become a man?

And Teddy's favorite thing to say lately:
Mmm bite.

(This is short for "The food on your plate looks better than the food on my plate. You will give me some of yours now.")

Lucky Teddy, to have a brother like Calvin praying for him.
Melt everyone's heart.
