This kid cracks me up on a daily basis. 9 and yet sooo wise.

"Can't my castle jump over other pieces?"
"But the Queen can move EVERYWHERE. Like over here in an S formation"
"It's albout SACRA-FICING your pieces."
"It's ok if I lose my king.  It doesn't mean the game is over.  I still have lots of other pieces."
"It's called CHEST"
(when playing chess)

"The cops are going to be TOTALLY confused when they see my footprints <in the snow> later!! Some are going forward and some are going backward and when I flip around they're all smushed!"
(on walking to school on the snow covered sidewalk this morning)

"St Helens is like a gobstopper.  It's where we live.  We're the middle part.  And the other layers are these other towns right next to them.  What's the name of them again?"
(his reflection on where we live)

"I don't like to wear my coat.  It's all puffy and makes me look fat."
(our daily fight on clothing to walk to school in)

"Mom.  You're skinny now.  Like a model.  Only a little bigger."
(oh yes, he went there)

LOL, the jacket comment cracked me up. When I was a kid, we called winter jackets "fat jackets" =)

He started this the beginning of this school year. Couldn't care less about them before now... did prefer chamo colored, but that's about it. This year he has it in his head it makes him look FAT. I would expect this from a Girl (being one and all), but not from my little guy. :)

    Dear Twin... sometimes words come out of my mouth before my brain has a chance to stop them... well aint that the life...

    Some people make parenting look sooo easy.  They are big fat liar pants.  Parenting is hard.  Kids can be awful.  They don't come with an Instruction Manual.  I started young and have grown up with them.  We have gone through a lot together.  And I would have never been able to do it without the wonderful family I have.  I started blogging because of Twin.  She said that it wasn't nice of me to take a Bad Day out on the Hubby or the Brats.  And so this began.... it's my Rantings From The Time Out Corner... because, let's face it - when I'm full on Cranky Pants... my hubby doesn't fail to make me go Sit One Out for the Team.  (for more see ME above)
