I'm A Chloë

Chloë and I were conversing in the car. About what, I don't recall - save for the last part of the conversation:
  • Chloë (2): Oh, Daddy!
  • Robert: You're a silly girl.
  • Chloë: No, I'm a Chloë!

Seahawk Clause

Just when you thought Christmas posts were over, I ran across this picture we got on the streets in downtown Seattle the last time we went to watch the Seahawks lose.

Proof that Santa is a Seahawks fan:

High Five

While at work, I got the following text from Sarah:

"Chloë is supposed to be napping right now, but she is in her bed telling her dolls that she put her poop in the big girl toilet and to give her "5". lol!"

Pinheaded Slang

While watching The O'Reilly Factor tonight:
  • Aiden (7.5): Dad, what's a "pinhead"?
  • Robert: It's like a "goofball".

Any suggestions?

Christmas 2009

This is a little late, but oh well. I usually just post the quotes you usually read while they're fresh...hence the outdated Christmas 2009 update!

Gingerbread Houses are better with extra gummy candy.

"Christmas Eve is soooo hard!"

Chloë's "Tea Party"

Aiden's new bike with pegs.

Needless to say, we appreciated the significantly reduced drama since last Christmas!

While sitting in her bath:
  • Chloë (2): I'm getting a bath - I'm slinky.

Your Bubbles

While settling on the couch to watch a Blazer game on TV:
  • Aiden (7): I like laying on your stomach the best.
  • Robert: Why is that?
  • Aiden: Because I like to hear all your bubbles.

It's still better than when this happened.

What's Boring

Aiden (7) was assigned the duty of sharpening our pencils recently whilst the adults watched a boring news show:
  • Aiden: Why are you pausing that show? Is it for big people only?
  • Robert: No, it's just that it's waaaay too boring for kids.
  • Aiden: It's the same thing as sharpening pencils, you know.
