take me to your leader

the boys got cap guns for christmas. the blasting noise scares the puppy.

artist lovingly consoled cocoa by petting her and saying, 'it's okay cocoa, i come in peace'.

after she was calm, he ruined it by adding 'i come in peace but my gun doesn't'. :)

name your worth

bfp and i were joking with the kids about selling them. we asked them what they thought they were worth.

football came back with a prompt 'trillion dollars'. artist thought about it for a little while and said 'when i'm bad, you could probably only sell me for five cents; but when i'm good, it's more like three thousand million infinity dollars'.

i want infinity dollars. i could buy a lot of stuff with that. :)

hat trick

not a funny, but football got a hat trick today in his hockey game. so very proud of him! although, he was disappointed that noone threw a hat into the rink like they do in the professionals. :)

too early to tell

artist woke up at 5am this morning and took a peek outside. 'mom! i don't think there is going to be school today!'

'why not?' i asked.

'because it's too dark out.' i wish that's how it worked, buddy. :)

'sick' of compliments

artist was showing football a dragon that he drew and football said 'artist, this is sick!'
artist asked 'sick, like puking? or sick, like awesome?'
football answered 'sick, like awesome.'
artist replied 'oh, okay. i know.' and walked away.

we got to sit in a third floor suite during a colorado rapids match. the boys were thrilled! everything was going great until poor artist accidentally dropped his glass of ice water on a man in a second floor suite. the man was (understandably) mad and talked to security.

artist turned white and broke out in tears. he asked 'mom, will the security guy come and take me away to juvenile? i don't want to go to juvenile.' i reassured him that they would not take him away for spilling water. :) he spent the rest of the match inside the box and watched it on tv, traumatized.

rex protection

football had the worst headache yesterday. bfp laid him in bed with a washclothe across his forehead. artist gave him a giant t-rex toy and said 'there might be monsters under the bed and he'll protect you if you can't do it yourself.' awww!

they are like...

i gave the boys rye-crisps for a snack.

football asked 'what are these?'

artist replied 'they are like cat food, only better.'

so now i am sitting here wondering... since we have never had a cat to feed, when has artist eaten cat food? and apparently rye-crisps are similar? lol.

the boys can not say 'resolution', even after repeated help pronouncing it. :)
