Quotable Quotes

1.  I only ever buy natural peanut butter.  The kids think they are missing out on a normal kid's life because I won't buy the other kind (and I'm sure for a lot more reasons too).  One day last week during spring break, I took all three kids to Costco.  I must have been in a weak mood, because they were able to talk me into a few "unusual" purchases, one of which was a huge jar of Skippy PB.

Yesterday after Joel had eaten breakfast and was cleaning up his plate and cup, he said, "Skippy peanut butter changed my life!"

2.  Last night Joel took a bath.  I can't remember the last time he did that. I was in the bathroom with him, doing some cleaning. He had some plastic spiders he was playing with.

He says, "If we adopted a girl, it'd be funny to put this spider by the shower when she is 18.  She'd be like, 'Aaaahhhhhhhhhhhh!'"

I say, "Why when she's 18?"

So he answers with, "'Cause that's the age when girls are the most freaked out!  Right, Mom?"

"Yeah, you're probably right,"

3.  The other morning Joel and Jack were not the best of friends.  A little fussing, a little arguing, you get the picture.  I hear Joel asking Jack to please not make faces at him.

Jack:  All brothers make faces at each other.  It's a part of life.

Joel (quite put out):  Are you kidding me?  A part of life!
