Tylan to Avery: “O-M-O-M spells Mom.”
Tylan then asks me: “Is that how you spell it in cursive?”
Avery: “Hey Nana! Watch dis!!!!” (Nana is talking to Avery on the phone.)
Tylan: “Ow, ow, ow, ow, ow!”
What’s wrong buddy?
“My finger is hurt! OWWWW!”
Let me see. Oh my goodness Ty! That’s only marker.
Avery with an accent: “Ima cowboy. Howdy DUDE!”
Avery: “Ho-ly Cooow!”
Ty: “Avery that is a bad word. Bad words break God’s heart……Mom, do we say holy cow?”
Yes Tylan, you can say holy cow.
“What about Holy Moley?”
Sure, you can say holy moley.
“Oh. Never mind Avery. You can say it.”
Tylan: “Can we listen to Michael Blueberry?” (Michael Buble’)
Avery: “Mom. Mom. MOM. MOMOMOMOMOM.”
“You my best fwiend.”
<Total guilt> Awww! Thanks baby!
Ty: “M-ooooom! Avery’s not looking at me!”
<Avery slinks by totally in the buff>
Avery Lyn! Where are your clothes?
Avery shrugs: “I need to be naked.”
Ty! Did you swallow your gum?
“No, I just chewed it in my tummy.”
Ty: “Mom, I want to be a doctor when I grow up so I can help people.”
That is great Tylan! How about you Avery? What do you want to be when you grow up?
Avery: “Awee, supa man gwrl!” (Avery super man girl)
Ty: “Mom, I know how to spell 7!!”
Oh yeah? How?
Ty, super excited: “5 & 2!!!!!!”
Ty at prayer time: “Dear God, thanks for PopTarts, Bars & Bla-nana’s. A-men!”
Ty, clean up your toys.
Cheerfully says: “Yes mom!” and walks away. Looks up and quietly adds, “Yes God”.
That’s it Avery!! You are GROUNDED from Rice Krispies!
(Don’t ask! Loooong story)
Ty: “Mushrooms are healthier than carrots.”
How do you know?
Ty sheepishly shrugs: ” I don’t, I just made it up.”
