Welcome to another edition of Deep Thoughts! If you're new here, this is where I write a lot of the things that my son has recently said that either surprised me, made me laugh, or just confounded me somehow. I hope you enjoy, and have a great week!
(Xander comes up behind me and hits me with a foam sword - hard - while I'm changing a diaper.)
Me: Hey! I don't get hit; you know that. I don't like fighting.
Xander: How are you even my mommy??
(On New Year's Day)
Me: Do you have any goals for the new year? Anything you'd like to stop doing or start doing better?
Xander: Watch more football and play football.
Me: That's cool. You want to learn all the rules and stuff?
Xander: I already know all the rules.
Lucas: Maybe your goal should be modesty.
"My toes do a lot of jobs for me all by themselves!"
(Said to himself while he was in his room and I was in the kitchen. I still have no clue.)
Xander: I can't play long; we're going to Boone.
Jalen (neighbor): You can't go to Boone! I'll never see you again!!
Xander: Not forever, just for dinner, dude!
"Want to know a special recipe? You get paprika, beans, brown sugar, 2 slices of pie, and half of a candy apple of course, and mix it all up together. The Ultimate Chili."
"Hey Mommy, what is your heart's dream? I don't know mine yet."
(Again - no clue.)
While walking through the Walmart parking lot one morning, a car drove
past us, leaving. Xander, holding my hand and smiling, sweetly waved
his other hand and said, "Bye!!!" to the stranger. Just as I was
thinking how adorable he was, he quickly spun around toward the car and, in
a voice that can only be described as pure evil, growled, "FOREVER!"
