Hmmm...I guess I'm the "bad cop" in the family, but at least they got the last question right for both of us! Here are some cute sayings from the past month or so:


  • Maggie reading an invitation to her musical at school that says to wear 'holiday attire': "What's that mean? Like a tire on a car?"
  • Riley saying the prayer: "Thanks for helping mom and dad have good teachership." 
  • Riley thinking he has power over telling the stoplights to change: "I am ONE with the stoplights and the stoplights are ONE with me." 
  • Maggie: "I need to bring some chapstick to school in case my lips get chappy."
  • Maggie: "Where are my adventure and sleep boots?"
 Here's one pair!! 
  • Riley saying the prayer: "Thank you for this lovely day in Meredith Court. Help us to be healthy in 2018. Help us live a good life."
  • Maggie: "My finger was flooding with blood."
  • Maggie watching a movie in the car on the way back from Indiana: "Wait Riley, don't turn it off there might be some 'futures.'" (I think she meant special features.)
  • Riley: "Maggie, if you don't get your cup by yourself, you will be de-independent." 
  • Maggie: "This drink (water, lime wedge, and sugar packet) is so good it really blocked my heart." 
  • Chris to Maggie: "I'm really going to miss holding you when you get too big for me to hold." Maggie to Chris: "Oh, you'll be dead by then." 
  • Mom to Maggie: "You really need to not leave all your stuff lying around."                                  Maggie to Mom: "Come on, Mom, it's just what kids do!"
