A Life Lesson from THomas

Thomas: "Momma, I've learned a life lesson."
Momma: "Oh. What's that?"
Thomas: "So far, the one life lesson that I've learned is this: 'Never expect anything.'"

Dying for cooler weather

My kids say weird things in Florida. We've lived in Florida a little over a year. I thought my kids would love it but my kids are continually underhandedly complaining about living here. Just this morning...

14 year old: "Hey Momma, is anyone going to die this year?"

Me: "WHAT?"

14 year old: "Well, if they live somewhere else and they die this year we may be able to go somewhere with cooler weather."

It is Oct 2nd and it is going to be 87 degrees today.

20 years from now

"I hope the only difference between me now and me 20 years from now is that I know more stuff. Also, I want to be taller."

Paperclips and Vocabulary

"Momma, I'm extremely fond of bending paperclips." (T)
"Why are smiling like you are laughing?"

"Well, it's just the words you used. You didn't just say, I like to bend paperclips." (M)

"Oh. That's because I've decided I am going to start using more of the vocabulary that I see in the books I read." (T)

High Five!

(Elsie) Hey! Don't slap me!

(Momma)Where were you high-fiving her?
(Thomas) On her leg.
