Funnies by Maggie

Funnies for Grandma Holly today ...

'Maggie, what comes out of a chimney?"

Maggie is very much in the "never, ever .... " stage.  I don't know how many times she's played with Jack after saying she'd "never, ever again".

She's also into making up names.  I swear that one the other day sounded like "Sum Um Bith".  I did a double take on that one.

Rice Milk

Mom says: Your milk comes from cows. Dad's milk comes from rice

Maggie repeats: Our milk comes from cows, dad's milk comes from mice!

Where did that come from?

While waiting for Leesha outside her school, I allowed the Littles to play inside the van.  They were climbing over the back seat into the trunk area.
I heard a large THUD, and asked; "What was that?"
Jack responded; "I'm okay.  I bonked my head, but I can still remember my birthday and where the stairs are."
I let the comment go for a while, but returned to it later.  "Jack, where did you learn that?"
"I just know it."

The part about remembering a birthday is good to determine if there's a head injury, but the stairs portion baffled me.

A completely normal conversation for the Willis East household ...
"Jack, is this one of Dad's miniatures?"
"That's going to be my character for Savage Worlds."

miniature - small figure used in role playing games
character - the character you play when you're playing a role playing game, represented by the above mentioned miniature
Savage Worlds - one of the many role playing game systems

Yeah, I'm not only a geek wife, I'm a geek mom too.

Another conversation from dinner;
"Jack, what was your low and high for the day?"
Maggie: "My low was Abby leaving.  My high was Abby, Josiah and Kaitlyn coming over."

She often can't listen the first time, yet she's figured out this "how was your day" conversation ....

A Little Update

Maggie, who is a  v.e.r.y.  s.l.o.w.  eater, and more often than not wants help eating; "Everything you give me tastes better when you help me."

I don't like pineapple.
How do you know?
Because it has pines in it.

Maggie and I were rocking.  She was wiping her nose on the chair, so I suggested she go get a tissue.  She then asked if I'd pause the chair so she wouldn't miss anything.  When she returned (much later...), it was likely with a square of shredded and wadded up toilet paper.

Jack to Maggie (roughly); "If you were in a race, I'd choose a spot by you to help you win." (Mom's heart melts just a tiny bit more)
Maggie responded; "Jack, you're a good brother." (Aaawww ....)

Maggie; "Give me a piggy bank ride."

Jack on learning that Leesha's household has been contending with tummy ick; "It's too bad that Bridget's house has fallen ill."

The other day, I gave the kids gum in the hopes of having them be quiet for a while.  When I blew a bubble with mine, they asked how I did that.  Ever tried to explain that to someone?  And demonstrate? While driving?
