These kids continually crack us up, and by writing down these funny memories, they’ll become family lore in the years to come.
Two things from recently:
Last night on the drive home from church, I was reminding Zachary that he would be heading back to church with me in the morning. He has OWL class, and I have auction meetings. With a bit of a sigh in his voice he said, “How long will we be dere?”
I started into a drawn out explanation. “Well, you have OWL class, then I have a meeting with Ms. Marlo about the auction, then we have to do auction announcements during the services, and…”
Zoe turns to him in the back seat and says to him a deadpan voice, “You better pack a lunch.”
And, of course, there is always something funny that the Buster has said or the way he pronounces something.
He was telling me a long, elaborate story yesterday, and at one point said, “…and then after that he had to go here, dus (thus) the main character, blah, blah, blah…” I don’t remember any more of the story because I was so focused on his use of “thus.”
Not quite as funny as “Black Ash,” but pretty darn good.
