Theo–“When you think about it, easers die because of your mistakes. If you mess up enough, you destroy an eraser. It makes you feel evil on a whole new level!”
Scruffy–“This is the worst instruction manual ever.”
Theo–“That’s just like Legos.”
Scruffy–Pauses to look closely at his middle son in thought … . “You’re good at Legos!”
Me–“If you start washing your hair every three days, it would stop needing to be washed every day.”
Judah–“Are you telling him to wash it less!”
Theo–“Washing it every day makes it fluffy.”
Judah–“He likes it fluffy, Mom.”
Me–“Let me use the bathroom real fast before you shower.”
Judah–“I don’t think you’ve ever done that in your life.”
Brennan–“Mom, I took one pill from each day of the week!” He holds up his now un-organized pill organizer.
Me–“What?” Staring in horror.
Judah–“That sounds like a lot of work for no good reason.”
Brennan–“It annoys Mom.”
Me–Working on a job description for our new camp maintenance director–“Chasing squirrels, mice, rats, bats, ravens, ants, and other creatures out of the camp buildings.”
Scruffy–“That’s all under ‘Pest Control’. You’ve turned this job description into a RomCom!”
Me–“Mine was more exciting.”
Brennan–“You told Theo he couldn’t have chocolate life and then you offered it to Epona!”
Me–“Epona’s not my child.”
Theo–“I can act like I’m not your child!
Me–“Ow, my back just zinged.”
Judah–“Congratulations on being old.”
