Kellen's sayings: As we were riding home from eating out the other night, Kellen asked what we were going to have for dessert. I explained that it was late and that his dessert was all the Sprite he had just had to drink. In his most sarcastic voice he replied, "HA. HA. No, Dad." I suppose that I deserve this somehow, but I just didn't expect it at two years old.
Gabby's sayings: Gabby lost another tooth this week and we put it in a baggy for safe-keeping and got her ready for bed. After she was down, Crystal and I headed back downstairs to relax. Not too long later, I heard Gabby calling for me so I went back upstairs to talk to her. "Dad," she said, "Can I put keep my tooth for another night?" I was puzzled since the tooth was of no value except as collateral for the tooth fairy and asked why she wanted to wait. "Because I love my tooth so much that I can't stop kissing it!"
We decided to put the tooth outside her room for a day and then the next day we were able to leave it for the toothfairy.
Cade's sayings: For some reason that I can't remember Crystal was telling Cade that she knew exactly what he was thinking (I'm sure you'll be shocked to know that he was thinking about a Star Wars video game). Anyway, as Crystal was talking about her prowess as a mind-reader the kids challenge her skill. As she went around the kids, she correctly guessed Kellen's mind (Star Wars - heavily influenced by the moment) and Gabby's mind after a few tries (princesses) and then she was stumped by Cade. We both guessed and guessed and guessed and eventually gave up. "I was thinking about hot bikini girls!" Great. A few days later he followed it up with this comment when we were watching the football game. "That's the hot bikini girls I was talking about," he said when the cheerleaders (NFL variety no less) were flouncing across the screen.
