Funny things heard around our house

The boys definitely say the darnedest things. This week's loveliest gems.

Little Elvis to me the day after my birthday: "Even though you're old, you're still on the young side." Thanks, man.

Baby Plum to me this morning. "I like Daddy hugs better than Mommy hugs." I have to beg this child for hugs. He's very blatant in his preference for his daddy.

Little Elvis after every Baby Plum snub: "I love you, Mommy. You don't have to ask me for hugs. I just give them. I love you, even though Baby Plum only loves Daddy."

Baby Plum to me this evening: "Little Elvis and I love you, Mommy." He broke out of his bedroom this evening to tell me that, and give me a hug. I am almost certain that his older brother put him up to it. While Little Elvis is in the midst of (what I hope!) is a quite annoying 6-year-old phase where he needs to pester constantly, he's still very aware of other's feelings.

The older two aren't the only ones saying crazy things. Cheese Puff is really getting into playing games with us! He's back to saying "Goose!" when we play duck-duck-goose. For a while he was just saying, "Duck! Duck! Duck!" He's also loving hide-and-seek. He's not so great at hiding, but loves to yell, "I see you!" when he finds us. (He usually finds me, because he's hiding with me.) We're pretty easy to find. We've also started playing "London Bridge," and he loves it. He mainly hums, but loves to be the bridge with me. And I got part of him singing, "Twinkle, twinkle, little star" today. It's not the whole thing, but it's something.

He also will walk around the house saying, "Little Elvis! Where are you?" He does the saying for all of us. His favorite word is definitely "No." He likes to yell, "Kitty cat, no!" at all of us. I'm pretty sure that's what he's saying. He started saying it to the cats. Now he says it to all of us. But he has learned Wally's name. He likes to fuss at Wally. Poor Wally.

Don't think we're out of the woods on Little Elvis' constant random questions about businesses, their age, etc. Today he asked me if there was a regular Coke, if there was a Diet Coke. If you know me, you most likely know about my addiction to Coca-Cola Classic. I have one every morning. It's my coffee. I love it, and I try very hard not to share it. I couldn't believe he asked that. I opened up the fridge, and pointed to the 24-pack. "That's regular Coke."

He asked my dad about how old Wal-Mart's cola brand was today. Is it different than Sam's brand of cola?

A question he's asked me for 2 days -- to find him a mustard noodle recipe. That's the next thing on my agenda.
