Quotable Kids, October 2017

James: “Mom, I do declare that there is a faint, buzzing sound in the air.”

James to me: “Oh, are you about to make dinner? Well, here I am, your little scullion ready to help you!”

James to Jeremy: “I’m listening to The Voyage of the Dawn Treader right now, and I’m at the part where Eustace Clarence Scrubb is still such a beast!”

During a conversation about babysitters:
James: “Well, I would like to have Methuselah as my babysitter!” (A kindly old mouse in the Redwall series.)

James, while putting cheese on his toast: “Who wouldn’t let the cheese man in at the door? And all the good little children get double lumps of cheese!”

June, pretending to shoot her bow: “Alice, you’re Smaug and I’m Bard. Twang! Twang!”
Alice: <laughs>
June, affronted: “Hey, Smaug doesn’t laugh!!”

June, reading Frog and Toad to Alice: “And this is Frodo, and this is Sam.”

June, in a sing-song voice:
Eeny, meeny, miny, mo.
Catch a mouse by its toe.
If it’s Reepicheep say hello!
Eeny, meeny, miny, mo.

June, holding up a copy of Cinderella: “Mom, what’s the name of this book again? Mozzarella?”

    Hahaha! These are some of my favorite posts. I often think how often I laugh in a day just because of the funny things the kids say or do. I should really write some down too!
    June’s last one is the best…mozzarella?
    And James, he’s just a riot!

    Oh my, these are wonderful! I’m torn between the one with Smaug or the one with Reepicheep being my favorite…

    I’m sorry I didn’t get a chance to share more than a passing hello at the conference. It went by so fast, didn’t it! I hope you enjoyed it and found it helpful.

      Hey Amber! Yes, the weekend did zip by in a hurry! I thoroughly enjoyed the conference. The talks were excellent and there was a lot to think about afterwards (made me almost glad about the six hour drive home, lol!). I was really impressed with the way the whole weekend was organized; the time available was used really well. And I’m so glad the weather held out and there was the opportunity to be outdoors enjoying the beautiful sights, too!

        I’m glad you enjoyed the conference! And I was so pleased that the weather was as nice as it was, I was definitely expecting rain, especially on Saturday afternoon. A conference schedule is a tricky thing, and I think on the whole this one worked well. I’m glad you thought so too.


I'd love to hear what you think! Kindly share your thoughts here.
