Kid Quips

Ty, in response to my singing of the Popeye theme song:

"You are everything opposite Popeye is. You don't eat spinach, you don't live in a garbage can, you're not strong to the finnich, you're not even strong."

Michael, at dinner, in response to me somewhat jokingly saying my boys were not so nice to Mommy anymore:

"What are you talking about? I just said, 'nice chicken' 10 minutes ago!"

And a sweeter quote...
Jack, coming up from the basement to see Junie standing at the door, waiting for him:

"I need a kiss from my Junie-girl!"

Ty, on occasion, has remarked on Junie's appearance (not for the politically correct faint of heart!):

"I cannot even believe she is Chinese. Most Chinese people look like this (scrunches up eyes) and Junie looks like this (makes eyes really big)."

"I cannot even believe Junie is Chinese, she looks just like you, Mommy".

And, knowing Junie will have a "nose and lip revision" in the future:
"I don't think she needs any more surgery. She looks perfect to me".

Kinda makes up for the Popeye comment, doesn't it?
