Jack (age 7) asked me this morning what Easter was all about, so I explained about the crucifixion of Jesus, the tomb, the stone, and how when they rolled back the stone three days later Jesus was gone. That he’d come back to life. I also told him, “I have no idea what bunnies, eggs, and chocolate have to do with Jesus, however.” He thought for a minute.

Him: “Maybe the cave was made of chocolate.”

Me: “Yeah, and he ATE his way out!”

Him: “And he really liked bunnies, and eggs too.”

Me: “Wonderful! But what about the carrots?”

Him: “He used the carrots to DIG his way out!”

Me: “You. Are. So. Awesome.”


Overheard from the comfort of my bed:

Alex (13) had a friend over this morning, and they were in his room playing on the Xbox. Jack was lingering around watching. Somehow the conversation turned to pancakes, and Alex said, “Jack likes pancakes, but he doesn’t like syrup.” Alex’s friend says to Jack, “Dude, that’s just un-American.”

I am loving the ages of my kids now. They’re just so funny and sarcastic and sweet. But they like to beat the crap out of each other, so it evens itself out.

Have a great weekend!

    Ahahahah! If it weren’t for my kids I’d have nothing at all to blog about.

      I just need to remember more funny stuff they say. That’s the real challenge. My mind is a steel sieve.

    Kids just say the cutest things! And by the way, it’s un-Canadian to not like maple syrup… 😉 Great stories!

      Oh, I’m sure it’s DEFINITELY un-Canadian to dislike maple syrup! It’s probably against the law, yes? 😉

    Alex’s friend cracks me up.

    My nieces (15 & 16) spent last weekend with me (along with their BFF – yes they share one) so I had a weekend of doozies like that. We were in the car going somewhere (to the mall, I’m sure) and I’m not sure what they were talking about by my oldest niece chimes in with “Like, that’s totally projection!”. Turns out high school now offers Pyschology classes (WHAT??!) and she might have actually been listening. 🙂
    PS – I can’t stand syrup either so I must be un-American and would also make a really bad Canadian (WackyMummy).

      Projection! How hilarious! If they start talking about transference, then I’d worry. 😉 I like sugar-free syrup better than the regular stuff. Weird, huh?

    That is un-American. The kid was right.
