Boo: "Mom, remember that one time when we went to Disneyland?"
Me: "Yeah, it was so fun!"
Boo, speaking as fast as humanly possible: "And we had so much fun and then monsters came and chased us and we went on all the rides and some of them were scary and the monsters were bad guys because they hit people and then Buzz came and and he can fly and is the coolest toy EVER and Buzz saved the day. Amen."
Me: "Did you just say "amen?"
Boo: "Yeah, sometimes my primary teacher says that after she tells stories."
Me: "That's true."
Boo: "Mom, that was just a pretend story."


Boo: "Mom, I want a brudder and a shisher."
Me: "I would love for you to have a brother and a sister. You'd make such a good big brother!"
Boo: "We can name him Buzz!"
Me: "That's a good idea, we'll think about it."
Boo: "And we can name her Bullseye!"
Me: "Mmkay, what do you think about Halle or Cameron or Savannah?"
Boo: "No, I like Buzz and Bullseye."

I could listen to my nieces and nephews talk all day. They say some pretty funny things!
"mom, I can't clean my room because I have no arms. I'm R2D2"
Pretty legitimate excuse if you ask me. :)
