Me: Your calf muscle.
Carter: I think I have really good calf muscles. And I have really good muscles here when I flex my arms.
Me: Your biceps.
Carter: Yeah, I have really good biceps. And what are these muscles on boys? (He uses both hands to draw circles around his nipples.)
Me: Your pectorals.
Carter: I want to get really good muscles there. And I want to have a six-pack.
(Silence for about a minute, except for my laughing.)
Carter: Mom, what's a six-pack?
Preston: Mom, what's the weirdest thing you ever saw?
Me: A dog falling out of a two-story window.
Preston: Did it break any bones?
Me: I don't know. I just saw it as I was driving by.
Preston: Well, the weirdest thing that I ever saw, if I saw it, would have been a monkey doing the hula.
Preston: You're the weirdest mom in this family.
Me: You think I'm weirder than that other mom?
Preston: What other mom? (pause) Well, you're weirder than Aunt Laura. She's pretty weird, but you're way weirder.
Me: How is she weird?
Preston: Well, she's weird because she just lets kids play Wii whenever they want to.
(He never did justify his comment about how I am weirder.)
Something I never thought I would hear Bill say. We were on the way to church, and he said, "Oh no! I don't remember if I unplugged the flat iron!"
(He did. And he had helped me out by fixing Avery's hair.)
