Did you know we have a middle child? His name is Ben and he's very funny. Here are some good quotes from last week:
Pig in a Blanket
We had hotdogs wrapped in tortillas one night for dinner, one of Ben's favorites. At one point I checked in with him and I saw he had pulled the hotdog out and was trying to get the tortilla wrapped around it again. I asked what he was doing. He said:
"I take-ed it out of the blanket and now it's freezing hot."
Then he covered the hotdog with the tortilla and said:
"I put it back in the blanket and now it's nice and warm."
(Note: The hotdog was fridge temperature. I never heat hotdogs for them. I don't like getting yelled at.)
Ben: Mom, what comes after eleventy?
Mom: Eleventy? Well, Eleventy-one, I guess.
Ben: And then-?
Mom: Eleventy-one, Eleventy-two, Eleventy-three...
Mom: Yes, Eleventy-five-
Together: Eleventy-six, Eleventy-seven, Elevnety-eight...
Mom: What comes next, Ben?
Ben: Yeah, Toodee! Toodee-one, Toodee-two, Toodee-three ...
(Zeke's laughter drowns out the rest. Not because the counting was bad, just because Ben said "Toodee-two.")
