From time to time I'll be posting things that my kids say because as you may know, I don't scrapbook and I'm a terrible journaler. (I think I made up that word) I have four kids and three of them are girls so I pretty much have an endless supply of good material for this blog. Don't worry, though, I have lots of other important things to blog about. Today just isn't one of those days.
On Homeschool vs Public:
(This is one of those conversations that really boosts my confidence in the decision I made to homeschool my kids. (Note: I may or may not have said the things I was accused of. I don't remember. If I did, I'm sure I didn't mean it.))
April (5yo): Mom, remember when we drove by the school and you said it was junky?
Me: I don't remember saying that.
April: Remember, I said I wanted to go back to my old school and you said oh, you don't want to go back to that junky old school?
Me: I don't remember using those words exactly, why?
April: Well, I was just in my room with Blaise, and she can read already and I can't and so I was thinking well, maybe that school's not so junky after all.
On favorite colors:
Autumn (8yo): Hey, what's everyone's favorite color?
April: I like puwple.
Autumn: I like blue.
Anna (9yo): I like cayenne.
Me: (perking up) Oh, Anna, that's a great color. You mean, the rusty red color?
Anna: No, it's not red at all.
Me: Oh, wait, do you mean cyan?
Anna: Yeah, that's it. I got the c sounds mixed up.
On future professions:
Me: What do y'all want to be when you grow up?
Autie: I want to be a massage therapist.
Anna: I want to work in the reptile section at the zoo so I can bring home a snake and scare John.
April: I want to be in karate.
