Kid Stuff

I haven’t posted anything about the kids in while. One of them will say something cute or funny, and I’ll think, “I need to remember that.” And then I don’t. So here are a couple of things I managed to remember. I’ll try to do better. I know they’re more entertaining than I am.

When Jeffrey isn’t fighting with his little brother, he’s doting on him. We have no middle ground. He frequently tells Bennett, “You’re a genius!” Apparently, Bennett believes it. Last night, Jeffrey was reading a book to Bennett in the other room and I heard B say, “…horseshoe crab!”
J: You’re right! Mama, how does Bennett know what a horseshoe crab is?
Me: I don’t know. Diego, Dora, one of his many dinosaur books?
B: I’m a geni-us!
Me: Or that.

Bennett: I want to play a game.
Me: What do you want to play?
B: Macaroni
Me: Whac-A-Mole?
B: Yeah.
