{ quotables }

10/22 ~ We were at a volleyball game and Fluffy asked Rosebud: "Do you want to be a cheerleader when you grow up?" She responded without hesitation: "No, I want to be a garbage truck driver."

……………………………………….

~ Rosebud: "I'm going to be a butterfly for Halloween. And for Christmas, I'm going to be a shark!"

……………………………………….

10/20 ~ Rosebud, at the dinner table : "I apologize for the inconvenience, but we are out of all the lobster bisque." (see this for cultural enlightenment :o)

……………………………………….

~ We were discussing moving to a place with lower rent. The boys were convinced that being homeless and living in a tent would be a great idea. Hummer even suggested that we could camp at the temple site and face our tent toward the temple, like in the Book of Mormon. I said that maybe it would be better to do something to earn more money, like maybe I could do some babysitting / daycare. They all liked that idea, too. I said, "So the ideas you like best are being homeless and starting a daycare?"

Hummer : "Yeah! You could do both and have a homeless daycare!"

(Who’s ready to sign up? :o)

……………………………………….

10/14 ~ Rosebud and I saw some Canadian geese at a park as we were driving by. I stopped and let her visit them. She walked around "chasing" them and when it was time to go, she wanted to take one and "put him in the car."

I told her he would be sad to be separated from his family and said, "You wouldn't want someone to take you away from us and go somewhere else, would you?"

She answered thoughtfully, "Sort of, yeah."

……………………………………….

10/12 ~ Rosebud: "Daddy, you are the coolest one in the whole world. Because you kill scary bugs."

……………………………………….

10/10 ~ We were trying to convince Rosebud to let her pet ladybug go, as it had already endured nearly 24 hours of captivity. She was feeding it cookie crumbs and I told her it needed its own regular food. She said, "No, she likes it. I'm going to name her Borscht!"

……………………………………….

10/9 ~ Rosebud, in a cheerful, matter-of-fact tone: "After I'm on timeout for 100 days, then I would be dead. I would be dead on timeout!"

Your children say the most wonderful things! Really! Rosebud actually used the word "inconvenience"? Wow.

@snbjork It's just because of watching the skit so many times. It's our favorite! Love the new one from this week's Studio C, too. :)

Rosebud is on a kick! My son starts quote the "lobster bisque" skit while he is unloading the dishwasher. Then it gets stuck in everyone's head and all I hear all day long is "lobster bisque."
