Overheard

During a lesson on chess, Jason explains that the king moves very slowly--just one square at a time. Josiah immediately comes up with the reason: "It's because his armor is very heavy...and he doesn't want his crown to fall off."



Grace was sitting at the table during the lesson/game of chess, seemingly hanging onto every word. I asked her if she was going to learn how to play chess, and she answered, "Yes, when I turning 5."

~~~~~

Grace, seeing a political ad on TV, points and excitedly says, "Bakamama!" One more example of Obama's celebrity status? I don't know. I think maybe our two year old knows the name "Barack Obama" because Josiah enjoys doing an impression of him now and then...but I really don't know how she actually recogizes him in a photo shown briefly on TV.

~~~~~

Grace: "I wanta kowawa."

Josiah [confused]: "You want a koala?"

Grace [thinking she's enunciating by speaking louder]: "No! I wanta KO-WAH-WAH." (She wanted cold water.)

Robert: "Hey, Mom! I found Josiah's favorite book of the Bible...Lamentations!" [laughter]

~~~~~

Jason: "Wait a minute...You mean that the telemarketer gets on the blog, but your husband who says clever and witty things all the time doesn't?"
