Three more Jack quotes

He just keeps on dropping gems and I don't want to forget them. And remember, he's only two years old. Comedic wunderkind?

#1 -- Self-control

Setting: Samantha had a big temper tantrum before getting in the van for a trip on Sunday. Screaming, stomping.. the whole nine yards. A few minutes later she came back to the van where Jack was already buckled into his seat and waiting. He looked at his big sister and said:

Jack: "So, did you get yourself together yet?"

#2 -- Undies

Setting: I walked into Jack's bedroom this morning after my shower. I was only wearing boxer shorts:

Jack: "What are you wearing, daddy?"
Me: "What do you think I'm wearing?"
Jack: (thinking...) "Just one panty?"

#3 -- Tengo queso en mis pantalones

Setting: Jack was on the potty this morning. We're on day #3 of potty training, and it's going OK but boys seem to take longer than girls. Jack was in a foul mood:

Jack: "I'm scared, mommy!"
Mom: "What are you scared of?"
Jack: "The ribbit frogs! Do they live in my heart?"
Mom: "No, who lives in your heart?"
Jack: "I don't know."
Mom: "God?"
Jack: "Yeah, that's it. God."
Jack: "So who lives in my pants?"

So, WHAT'S 'THE ANSWER', Mom--'WHO LIVES IN HIS PANTS'????????!!!!!!!!

I LOVE the FIRST one--I bet Miss Samantha felt like SHE was the 'child' & Jack was her 'parent' by his asking her that--that way--PRECIOUS!!!!!!!!!!

SO GLAD you put them on your blog & now will REMEMBER THEM to be able to TELL them to both your kiddos when they're old enough to understand JUST HOW SMART they are/were when they were SO YOUNG!
LOVE YOU ALL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Mom

Gotta love kids.

Arden had one this evening and if it wasn't for your post, I would have forgotten it. Here's a recap

Background: Show-n-tell day at pre-school and Arden took her pink notepad she calls her diary. I'm washing her hair in the tub...
Me: So what did you take to show-n-tell today
Arden: My diary. It's another name for poop.
Me: No it's not!
A: Yah-ha. It's when you poop and tinkle at the same time.
Me: That's diarrhea, sweetie. Diarrhea.
A: Oh.

I don't know who lives in his pants. And I don't wanna know!

And Greg, your post was funnier than any of mine!

Ha! I loved the quotes. The other day my seven-year-old was helping me burn an old tree stump. He thought it was lots of fun, apparently. After a while he laid down on the grass and said to himself "Ah, good times, good times". I just laughed at that. I have no idea where he picked it up.

If he lives with an all-female family like I do, he's going to need to learn how to keep that first one to himself.

Funny stuff. Jack's becoming quite the comedian.
