Brock, age 4: "The best gift is family. Now, some people might hear that and wonder how a bunch of people fit in a box, but really it's just something you SAY."

We were leaving Smith's and there was a boy at one of those change machines. It was counting his change, making that plink-plink sound, and Brock says loudly, "Boy, that guy is really gambling A LOT!"

No comprende

Me, getting Brock (3) dressed: "We're going to go for a casual look today. Casual means 'relaxed and easy.'"
Brock: "So 'casual' is Spanish for that?"

Close, but ...

Brock (3) was rambling on about something and then: "... and we will use the bodies for firewood."
Me: "What? We'll use bodies for firewood?"
Him: "Yeah."
Me: "Where did you learn that?"
Him: "Caillou. They did it on Caillou. Oh, wait. No, it was trees they used for firewood."

Mark (teasing Brock): "I think you need a spanking."
Brock: "No! I don't! Or, if I do, I need a soft one."
