SNOWSHOES

Me: Do you want more toast Herbie? 
Herbie: No, because it's not healthy. 
And I want to grow taller than you and Dad!
Linus: Mom, Nellpea's tattling! 
Me (not being able to remember Penelope talking to me): Do you know what tattling is, Linus? 
Linus (scowling): No.


Linus: I want you to pick my wife. 
Me: You will pick your wife. It will be fun for you.
You wouldn't want who I would pick anyway. 
Linus (nodding): I want to pick a green woman. 
Me: Why? 
Linus: Cuz. I like green.

Woo (reading): And then shall the wolf dwell with the lamb; and the leopard shall lie down with the kid, and the calf, and the young lion, and the fatling, together; and a little child shall lead them. 
Ruby: I'll be friends with a great white shark! 
Linus: I'll be friends with a pig.


Ruby (describing some kid from school): He's kind of a bum in the rear.
Woo: Linus, do you want to pull NellPea? 
Penelope: No!! I want to pull me!


The only thing I can remember Moses saying this week:
Me (trying to help Moses to stop panicking over the tiniest things): What's important, Moses? 
Moses: Jesus. 
Me: Yes. 
Moses: You. And Archie. My family. 
Me: Yes. 
Moses (trying to stump me): Falling in a hole. 
Me: Yes. 
Moses (laughing): No! 
Me: Actually, Moses, if someone falls in a hole I want to know about it.

And Archie is still cute.


Hope you all had a good week!
