Last Christmas, Nathalie sent our family a card and included a list of cute conversations and funny words coined by her three boys. I loved the idea and decided to keep a list for my family for 2010. It’s great to have such memories recorded for posterity (and embarrassing wedding speeches). Without further ado . . .

From The Mouths of Babes:
BA: Sam, it’s time for bed.
Sam: No fanks.
BA: Oh no, Jack. I am too old for that.
Jack: You’re not old mommy.
BA: How do you know that?
Jack: Because you’re too pretty.
BA: Sam, please stop. Don’t do this . . . etc., etc.
Sam: (covers his hands with his ears) Mommy, this hurts my ears.
BA: Jack, I am so sad that you are growing up.
Jack: Don’t worry mommy, I will grow down for you.
After hearing glass shatter, Sam squeals: “Ta Da! I did it!”
Jack: We’re getting a new baby so we don’t need Sam anymore. Let’s throw him the garbage.
Jack: Ask daddy he has money.
Paul: How do you know that I have money?
Jack: Because you work.
Paul: How about mommy, does she have money?
Jack: No. Her job is to look after us and she doesn’t get any money for that.
Paul and BA discussing baby names. BA to Paul: How about Bram?
Jack: Uh, no!
Sam, screaming at the top of his lungs: Look there’s Santa!
(The man he was referring to was a burley looking biker with white facial hair. He did this yet another time referring to a scraggly bearded homeless man.)
Jack: Does Terry Fox live in the woods?
BA: No. Why?
Jack: Because that’s where foxes live.
BA: Sam should I read this book to you?
Sam: No. Reared it to yourself.
Sam runs up to a zoo worker and full of excitement says: I farted!
And we will never forget . . .
- The two months that Sam wore his pajamas. Every day. All day. Everywhere.
