Over the past several months I’ve been keeping a little list of the funny things the boys say.   Since this site acts as a journal in a lot of ways, it makes sense to share it here!

“Wanna see a replay of what I just did?” -Ethan, referring to some cool move he did

“Pepperocini?….I like pepperoni and cheese more.” -Micah

Ethan was explaining a science experiment he had done at school (carrot sinking in water vs. a carrot floating in salt water).  Mike asked, “how does it do that?”  Ethan responded, “I don’t know.  Maybe it’s magic.”  Mike then asked, “well, is it science or magic?”  Ethan replied, “I don’t know which one of those it is.  Maybe a little bit of both!”

On the way to school the other day Ethan says, “Hey Mom!  Do you want to see how ‘Ethan’ I am?”  Confused…I say, “what?  sure…”  He just grins and says, “I know why you named me Ethan.”  We had told him recently that we picked the name Ethan for him because it meant ‘strong’.  Moments later, Micah shows his muscles and asks, “Hey Mom!  Do you want to see how ‘Micah’ I am??” =D

Sadly, I can’t remember which boy said this to me…I could picture it being either one of them.  “I want to eat that smell.  You smell so delicious, Mom.”

I overheard this exchange when the boys were finding worms outside.

“Moshi, do you want a worm pet?”

“I don’t know what that is.”

“Do you want a pet worm?”

“I don’t know how to do that.  Can you show me how to pet it?”

“No.  Do you want to have a worm AS a pet?”

Micah and I were out walking one day and we saw a frog.  I asked him, “what do frogs say?”  He said, “Ribbit.  Why do they say that all the time?”  I explained, “I guess because that’s what God created them to do.  What did God create you to do?”  He replied, “to be thankful.”  =)

Micah and I have been talking about how there are certain topics that we wouldn’t want to talk about unless we were in the bathroom.  So, as we are playing in the playroom he stops and says…

“Hey Mom.  Come in the bathroom.”

“Do you need to go potty?”

“No.  Let’s go to the bathroom….  I have to tell you something.”


I won’t include what he proceeded to tell me, but let’s just say it had to do with things only appropriate to say while in the bathroom…and it’s even questionable in there. =D

Here’s yet another fun interaction with Micah.  He comes inside after playing and says,

“Can you wash my feet, Mom?”

“No.  Your feet aren’t really dirty.”

“But Daddy does.  And Jesus washes feet.”


And last one for today….  We have been telling jokes at dinner lately and the boys are clueless and it’s awesome.  Micah’s jokes typically have something to do with worms.  For example, he might say something like, “I have a joke!  Why did the worm…eat the table?…. it’s because he was hungry.”  Hilarity ensues. Here’s Ethan’s version of the knock, knock joke that typically ends with, “orange you glad I didn’t say banana?”

“Knock, knock.”

“Who’s there?”


“Avocado, who?”

“Knock, knock.”

“Who’s there?”


“Avocado, who?”

“Knock, knock.”

“Who’s there?”


“Apple who?”

“Apple you glad I didn’t say avocado??”
