after the screaming

Andy got too rough with Ben. Ben cried hard, then got over it. But to make it up to him, Andy tried to be brotherly, and wanted my approval for doing so.

"Mommy, I kissed him for punching him the eye. Can you say, 'That's politeful?'"

physicist for hire

Andy: Mommy, is Christmas coming in two days?

Me: No, Andy.

Andy: Why not?

Me: Because it isn't, honey. I can't make time speed up.

Andy: Well, I don't know about that.

Today we were talking about last year's train ride with Aunt Janelle and Uncle Mike.

Me: Andy, do you remember last year when we rode in that caboose?

Andy: Yeah I do.

Me, unsure: Do you?

Andy: Yeah, cuz I was there.

Andy: I met a new friend today.

Me: You did? What's his name?

Andy: Ashton. He says, "Come on, ding dong!" and then he smacks me in the head.

a man thing?

Me: Andy, why is your hand in your shorts?

Andy: Because I'm checking if there's any crumbs in my butt.

What did Andy say when I couldn't find any kids for him to play with today?

"I guess I have to be stuck with you."

At dinner tonight:

Andy: Mommy, is this fish?

Me: Yes, honey. That's Canadian Whitefish.

Andy: Is it a real fish?

Me: Yes, it's a real fish.

Andy: But did you take the eye out?
