I was listening to Carson and Annelise play together with a kinetic sand bucket the other day, and heard some sayings that pretty much can only come from a five year old. They were playing pirates when I heard the following exchange:
Annelise: Are the pirates in Colorado?
Carson: No, they’re in California. Only pirates live in California.
Yep, I’m training him well. This was followed a few minutes later by Carson narrating the following:
Carson: And the pirates buried their treasure and marked it with an X, and a sign that said “Please Do Not Touch.”
Must have been the Polite Pirates.
Finally, in what I can only imagine was a different game and scenario:
Carson: And the scientists, said, “Don’t touch it,” and everyone listened to them because scientists are the smartest and richest.
A funny conversation ensued between Paige and I recently. We’ve changed the comforter on our bed to a nice, thinner one, but for a while the comforter always seemed to end up much more on Paige’s side of the bed by morning than normal. Paige started a conversation by saying:
“I don’t know what it is about this comforter, but somehow it always ends up all on my side!”
And that was actually the end of the conversation as I a bit too caught up having a good chuckle. :)
We use iPhoto right now to hold all of our photos, and one of the main draws is the facial recognition it does. It’s really awesome to be able to click a button and see all of the photos of Carson, or of Annelise, or of Paige and I together. It’s the future.
One fun thing is running through the photos the program isn’t sure of and classifying “Is or Is Not _______.” In the case of the screenshot below I was classifying pictures of Annelise, and it just so happened that it brought up some of her newborn pictures… and one of Carson. And I had to do a double take—Carson looks just like she does, or Annelise looks just like Carson. Judge for yourself, but I suppose they must have similar genes!
