BUCK UP BUTTERCUP

"I will take the sun in my mouth

and leap into the ripe air

Alive

with closed eyes

to dash against the darkness."

Kid Cuteness

Luke talking about the balloons at Balloon Fiesta: "They got fat, Mommy. The fire made them fat."

 

Daddy: "Zo, you are going to get a bunny bed. It used to be Mommy's and is coming from Seattle next week. Would you like to see a picture?"

Zo (after seeing the picture, and with much enthusiam): "Oh, that's so cute!"

Daddy: "Luke, we have a bed picked out for you, too. Here's a picture. What do you think?

Luke (also with great enthusiasm): "That's a great, guys!"

 

Dad to sis: "Sis, we got this?"

Sis to Dad: "Yes we do!"

 

Dad, in the parking lot going to get gelato: "Why are there so many people here? It;'s a Tuesday night, why is it so crowded?"

Sis to the general parking lot: "Get in your cars people and go away!"

 

Daddy: "Guys what is the moon made of?"

Luke: "Clouds."

Sis: "Moon."

 

Luke (a few weeks after celebrating his half birthday): Mom, how old am I going to be on my whole birthday?

 

Dad (sitting with the kids at the pizza place the other night, waiting for our pizza): "We're tigers! Creeping through the forest! Stop! Look around!" (Kids and Dad use their hands to pretend they are creeping, then stop, then look around.) "There's a zebra! Let's put him in the treehouse!" (This game continued until there was a whole menagerie of animals in the treehouse. Too cute to watch the kids playing with their Daddy like that.)

 

Dad: "We got a really knotty pumpkin, didn't we guys?"

Sis: "It's not a naughty pumpkin, Daddy! It's a good pumpkin!
