Disney Character Dinner

"When we go to Disney's dinner with the characters, I don't want to sit by Snow White or any of the other GIRL characters!  I want to set by Goofy, Donald Duck, or Mickey Mouse."

Snow in July

This past week the weather has been very hot.  Temperatures have been over 100 and the heat index has been very high also.   Husbands air on truck went out...then, our home central heating/air conditioning unit went out and had to be completely replaced...My son says, "Mom, I think we just need some snow!"

Nursing or Doctoring

My friend had taken her 5 year old to the zoo in Memphis.  There was a monkey nursing a baby monkey.  Without thinking, mom said, "Look that monkey is nursing."  Son replies, "How can you tell if it's nursing or doctoring?"

**True story that a dear friend shared with me.   Too cute not to pass along!

Teeth falling out

In an angry voice..."Why do you always want me to brush my teeth?!  I would rather my teeth fall out than brush them every day!"

Perdido Key Beach Vacation

We had an 8 hr drive to the beach...."Man, it feels like we're going to NY!!  Why is that?  Cause I think we've been gone forever!"...we'd been gone about 3 hrs.

"I wish we lived in a house build on stilts!"

""Boy I sure have missed all this sand!"

"Are those chop sticks through those shrimp?

"Do all palm trees have coconuts on them?  Man! I want to drink milk from one!"

Seeing his bed for the first time...."Bunk Beds!!!  How Cool!  I've never slept on a bunk bed before!"

"Y'all have a 'sink-y' bed!"  ---Translation, matress was not very firm

Looking at a woman laying out on the beach...."Look at that womans hair!  She looks like Cindy Loo Hoo!"

"I'm scared of heights so I know I can't parasail with you mom.  But, I wish I could get on one of those big birds back and fly over the ocean!"

Riding waves on boogie board...strattles it like a bull, with one hand in the air, and yelling "Yeeeee Haaawww!"

"I really don't like wearing sun SCREAM!"

"Salt water pools taste different than salt water oceans!"

"Can we please just go to the 'normal' people mall?"

"That's a funny looking duck over there!  That's not a's a crane!"

A man had walked out in the ocean to fish...Clay swam out to him and talked to him...I asked him what they were talking about...he said he asked the fisherman if he wanted him to catch some fish for him.  The fisherman asked how he could do that.  He explained that he could see fish swimming all around the fisherman when he looked through his goggles.  He thought he might have better luck with the goggles and a net than the fishing pole!   

We had a fun and relaxing vacation!

Spending a few nights with Aunt & Uncle

My son was spending a few nights with my aunt and uncle.  They decided to take my son to the nearby airport to see the planes take off and land.  He was so excited!  He said, "I'm ready to go...after all, I've got on my 'high-flying' shirt!"  (He was wearing his Hilfiger shirt)

The next day they were taking him to "Incredible Pizza" and he was thrilled to go there as well.  That morning before my aunt went to work he asked what time they were going.  She said, "It'll be around 4:30."  He said, "I hope I can wait that long!"

The next day he came home.  That night as I was putting him to bed and kissing him good night,  he looked up at me with a mischevious grin and said, "My aunt gives better hugs than you!"
