Declan while playing Star Wars Legos: “Okay, now we’re going to fight some bad guys. We are going to fight Count Dooku and Darth Vadar at the same time. This is called multi-tasking.”

Well he had one pulled, but that doesn’t count. Tonight after lots of rough play in the basement with the tribe kids D finally lost that one that has been hanging by a thread. We’ll see what he gets for it ….

as said by Gavin today: “Let’s all remember, I’m the King, OK?”

Gavin used his white board to create a “computer” this evening. I was in the kitchen and I heard him at the dining room sort of screaming in what sounded like frustration. I walked in and he’s shaking his hands above his head and saying “My computer crashed! Oh no! all it is showing me is my garbage writing!”

Oh dear, at least we keep our language clean.

Today as I was walking Declan home from preschool in the stroller he said “Mom, you know what I want to do when I’m all grown up like you?” I’m thinking astronaut, policeman, fireman – the usual. My youngest then says “I want to jump off a cliff….and hang onto a hang glider and you can watch me from an airplane!”

Sometimes my pants itch.

Gavin has been wiggling that tooth all summer. We were at Sunday night dinner at Wendy and Colin’s house and it came out! It was a big surprise to Gavin. “It is so small” was his comment, with a big look of wonderment on his face. He said he wants to keep the first one, but the others he’ll put under his pillow.

While in the car, Gavin was talking about his expansive knowledge of Spanish. Declan said

I know Spanish…Ooh la la

While packing up the Christmas stuff yesterday, Gavin kept talking about the ‘Activity Set’ (what most mortals call the Nativity Set). So I guess it’s a good thing he’s going to a Catholic school…
