Quotable Kiddos (2016 Part I)

by in Family and Faith


Having two talking little boys? Well, some days it’s totally exasperating and exhausting, but some days it’s knee-slapping funny and melt-your-heart adorable. Here are the little morsels I managed to write down so far this year…

  • While singing Bicycle by Queen, Oli stopped suddenly and said with deep sincerity (chin down, eyebrows up, eyes wide open, mouth clinched), “This song is about Jesus.”
  • At the grocery store with Ryan, Oli said with a deep sigh, “Mom is better at this than you.”
  • Bronson: “I think I’m ready for a half-pipe lesson.” Ummm… help!
  • Oli: “Daddy is your phone metal?”
    Ryan: “Kind of. It’s made of other things, too.”
    Oli: “Who made it?”
    Ryan: “Apple.”
    Oli: “Ooo… I like apples. With peanut butter.”
  • Oli to Bronson, “You’re my special friend.”
  • Bronson, telling me a secret about Oli’s birthday: “Mom, I have a whisper for you.”
  • Bronson, while pointing at a moose in a book, “Why are they calling that an elk with the letters? Oh, probably that’s the moose’s last name.”
  • Bronson while mad at me, “I don’t like your prettiness!”
  • Bronson to Oli: “Those holes (in the yard) are from baby skunks.”
    Oli, sincerely: “Maybe they’ll come talk to us.”
  • Oli, while eating meatloaf, with great joy and relief, “This looks like poop, but it isn’t!”
