Mom: Tomorrow we're going to go on an adventure!
Tall: Tall go on adventure? And Small?
Mom: And Baby and Mom and Dad.
Tall: And chairs.
Mom: And chairs? You'd need a lot of packhorses.
Tall: Pack horses? Yay!
Wherein there was spaetzle in the chicken noodle soup.
Dad: Wow, this spaetzle really soaked up the moisture.
Mom: It's like a camel.
Dad: Camels' humps are actually full of spaetzle.
Mom: Camels were invented in Germany?
Mom: The spoon's in the curry. That's sounds like a phrase, doesn't it?
Mom: You know. [Affects broad Australian accent]. The spoon's in the curry; it's off the table, mate.
[Speaks normally] That sounded like an Australian phrase, right?
Dad: So Australian that I couldn't understand what you were saying.
Mom: No, no. The spoon's in the curry: it's off the table.
Dad: That just sounds like you're describing an event.
Dad: [Sternly] It's dinner time. You should be sitting in your chairs eating or you should be dancing!
Mom: [Upon discovering a nappy rash]. You really need to tell me when you poop so this doesn't happen.
Small: [Toots in Mom's face without nappy on] Poop!
Dad: [During evening devotions] His legs weren't working and Jesus made his legs better so he could run.
Mom: Where's he going? [Referring to a picture where the man was running]
Tall: To watch TV!
Small: [Spies a ute canopy on the ground]. Quack, quack, quack! [Like, crazily excited]
Mom: Do you think ducks live in there?
Who needs school?
Tall: Tigers live down in the trees.
Mom: They do? In the trees in the jungle. What do they eat?
Tall: Tigers eat rocks.
Tall: Tall is a farmer. Makes cows out of horses.
Tall: Makes cows out of sheep.
Mom: What do crocodiles eat?
Mom: Crocodiles eat fish and...
[Tall's eyes bug out. He runs into the kitchen to look at the fish tank]
Mom: Not your fish!
Say it again, Sam
Dad: And this story is about Jesus. Can you say "Jesus", Small?
Dad: And they were on the water. Can you say "water", Small?
A long time ago when we were working on word clarity.
Mom: Say "water".
Mom: Train track.
It's been a long time since I'd posted and I have too many things to say and no idea how to start, so I thought you should just get to hear some of what goes on here.
