Curly: Have you noticed how Mom calls Dad 'Allen'? It's because she can't call Dad 'Dad', because he's not her dad. He's more like her boyfriend or something.
Cowgirl (in a prayer): And we're thankful for almost everything we have.
Me (after the prayer): So, what are we not thankful for?
ElemenoB: I didn't know there was a difference between convertible and not convertible cars. I thought convertible meant it was a sports car.
Me: Convertible means the top part of the car somehow retracts or comes off.
Me: (as our 3 littlest boys crawl up onto our bed) Hey! Where did all these boys come from?
Little O: Bemember, Mom? I was a baby in a box and you buyed me!
Hubba: (on the way to school) Whoa, Dad! We're going faster than the trees!
Me: HEY! Don't do that!
Allen: What did he do?
Me: He stuck his head up my skirt! Little O, you will end up in jail for doing things like that.
Little O: Silly Mom! Little boys don't go to jail!
Allen: They do if they look up ladies' skirts.
Curly: Yeah, especially if you're a big boy like Dad.
Overheard during the older kids' group Sunday School a.k.a. Primary Sharing Time:
Bishop O: Who followed one of the commandments today?
Kid 1: I am keeping the Sabbath Day holy!
Bishop O: Great! Who else?
Kid 2: I listened to my mom!
Bishop O: Nice! Anyone else?
Princess: I didn't commit murder!
Bishop O: Um, okay... I'm really glad to hear that, Princess...
Kid 3: And I didn't commit adultery!
Bishop O: Well, that's probably enough of those...
