Out of the Mouths of Babes

I have three good morsels to share.

First, this was from Lauren:

I took the kids to my nephew's eighth grade graduation tonight which ended up being a full Catholic Mass.  As communion started, she leaned over to me and whispered very loudly. "I like the Baptist church better because we don't all have to share the same cup."

The next one was from Drew:

Lately the kids have been pushing the limits and I've had to remind them who the parent is in this relationship.  Tonight we were having a discussion about how our family is not a democracy.

"Don't I get a vote at all?" Drew asked.

"Sure you do.  Mine just counts a whole lot more," I said and my dad who was sitting nearby added,  "A kid's vote counts for one and a parent's vote counts for a hundred."

Drew's response?  "Well then, you just need to have a lot more kids."

A final one courtesy of Chris.
Our school ends really late this year (June 10) because of all the snow days.  Another local school got out yesterday much to my kids' dismay.

"Mom, if we went to Lawrenceburg we'd be on summer break," Chris pointed out tonight.

"Yeah, so?"  I asked.

"Can we transfer to Lawrenceburg until June 10?"
