This one came last night as the family was taking a walk around the neighborhood. EC informed his mom and me that he had to pop some popcorn when he got home. He then added that he’d be leaving some milk out overnight and followed it up with the quote.
This was my eight year old son’s response to his Mom when she told him that he was going to be OK after being poked in the eye playing basketball a short time before.
My eight year old son directed this one at his (almost four year old) sister. Like many of EC’s quotes, this one came spontaneously and unprovoked.
My second grade son wrote this comment at school on a sticky note and put it on a poster that warned if you use email you may blow up your computer. The posters on the wall were made by some of EC’s classmates and everyone had to go around giving feedback via sticky notes.

My soon to be eight year old son made this comment after I finished watching one of the Mad Men DVDs I rented over the weekend. Apparently maids offer you crumpets?
My seven year old son told me this as I walked he and his sister to the car this afternoon after seeing Madagascar 2. Fake brother? Apparently EC’s friend’s family is hosting another family temporarily. Thus the other family’s son is a fake brother in my son’s mind.
