CAELAN [in a tone of awe]: Guess what, Mommy? Yesterday, Pappy watched a no-hitter. And a guy fell when he was catching a ball!
SARAH: Wow, sounds exciting! You know that was a baseball game. That’s the same game we were playing in the yard the other day.
CAELAN: No, Mommy, it was a no-hitter.
One morning I made a smoothie and poured it into my travel mug.
CAELAN: Are you making a new Alexa?
For reference, Alexa (Amazon Echo) on the right, my mug on the left 🙂
On the way to a timeout…
CAELAN: I’m gonna poke a hole in the wall and hope the house falls down.
Um, okay. Not sure he thought that one through!
SARAH: Caelan, please drink your milk.
CAELAN: Did you say “shake your booty butt”?
BILL: No! Not at the dinner table!
On our way to the beach, we passed many farms and saw lots of farm equipment including huge sprinklers on wheels.
CAELAN: Are you kidding me with that sprinkler?!
SARAH: What’s your favorite color today?
CAELAN [who knows all his colors and numbers perfectly well]: Seven.
SARAH: Do you want me to hold your cake pop while you climb out of the car seat?
CAELAN: No, I’m magic. I can hold it AND climb out.
When I get home from work, Caelan runs to meet me in the mudroom…
CAELAN: Mommy, we’re having a face!
CAELAN: A feece….[looks confused, and runs away calling] Daddy, what is it again?
After a few seconds, he returns to the mud room…
CAELAN: A feast!! A picnic feast! You want to join us??
