Ha x 2


Madalyn (8), today, in response to my discovery of a large (accidental) scratch along her brother’s chin: “My fingernails are devastating.”
John-Zachary (barely 6), today, after eating a grape which he was pretending was a person: “The brave knight is dead. Rip.”
(You know…..rip. Like they write on dead people’s gravestones.)
The fun never ends in California.


About msmaryb

I'm a native Californian who lives in Oklahoma. I'm a full-time student, pursuing a Bachelors in Anthropology, following which I hope to attain a Masters in Archaeology. I have three kids, one husband, no pets, and a lot of friends - most of whom live inside my computer. I love to read, write, watch tv (shut up, we can't all be brain surgeons), shop, and travel. I'm trying to set foot in all 50 states before I die. I have 38, so far. I love the Beatles and Maroon 5, and if you think those two things are incongruous, well, they are. But that's me. When I love something, I love it 100%. I don't do anything halfway. I want to know everything there is to know, so I'm trying to cram as much into my brain as I can in the short amount of time I'm allotted in this dimension.

  1. Rip. I love that.
    I am constantly amazed at the things kids say. The other day, Jeremiah got a new stuffed animal and told me he was going to name it “Passenger Jeff”. I asked why, and he said, “Mom, you know, Passenger Jeff from church. He’s really nice, so I’m naming it after him”. I guess he’s heard people calling him Pastor Jeff and he took that to be passenger.
