"Quote of the Day"

The other day, Becca had a splinter in her foot, and it really needed to come out. She was crying and really acting up. My hubby was really trying to be patient, picking at the skin trying to get the splinter out. We had a flashlight, tweezers, safety pin all at hand, trying to get this splinter out. Davey was really into it. Watching his daddy do his thing, while his big sister was really acting like a 2 year old. My hubby asked me if we had a magnifying glass, and of course I said "no". Then my little 4 year old Davey said this....."we can use Opa's magnifying glass, cause he's DEAD, and he won't care!".......I thought it was shocking at first, then we all burst into this laughter. Davey just said it, so nonchalant, and really meant it. The kids use to love playing with Opa's magnifying glass, but Opa would get upset with them. One day Dad called over saying he couldn't find his magnifying glass, and if Davey had used it the last time we were over. I asked Davey, and he said no. Dad was so insisting that Davey took his magnifying glass and hid it somewhere. It was missing for days. Dad would call here almost every day until Mom finally found it. Davey had nothing to do with its disappearance........so Mom said. Ok, just thought you all would enjoy my little boys "quote of the day"....there may be more to come.

Out of the mouths of babes! They just tell it like it is! On August 17, it was my cousin Zach's birthday - he tragically died about 2-3 years ago in a car accident and left behind a little boy. He would probably have been 23 or so this year - anyway, in honor of Zach, my aunt (his mom), and her family had a little birthday celebration for him, and let some hellium balloons in the air - her grandson (nephew to Zach) looked a little concerned, and leaned in to whisper to my aunt "you do remember that he's dead right?" Kids! Gotta love 'em!
