Josiah [pauses to stare at his father and remains surprisingly calm]: No.
Josiah [crosses his arms over his chest, still surprisingly calm, and deadpans]: You’ve lived with me for 6 years and you don’t know me at all.
Grace [happily]: Robert and Josiah are my fav’rite brudders!
Grace [hesitates uncertainly]: Who’s da udder Daddy?
Most mornings, I let Grace have her “TV time” while I take a shower. Her brothers usually watch with her and, therefore, try to steer her away from picking something like a Little Mermaid DVD. This time, however, Robert was apparently on auto-pilot and mistakenly said what he always says when someone asks “What‘s for supper?”
Me: Grace, what do you want to watch while I’m in the shower?
Robert [fake sneezes]: Quizno’s! [stammering as he realizes his error] Wait--no--
Grace [completely serious]: No, I don’t wanna watch Quizno’s. I want to watch Pooh.
What do you get when you pretend to play soccer with a volleyball?
Along with an estimated recovery time of 2-3 weeks for a minor tear. I'm guessing it'll be closer to the 3 week mark since either Josiah or Grace accidentally hurt me somehow every day. :(
