Quotes from a small (and not so small) Monkey
From a very young age, Monkey has amused us with the things that he comes up with.  This blog was begun when he was quite small, and I have been adding to it (less so lately) for over seven years.

He has always had a precocious way with words, and a genuinely brilliant sense of comic timing. One of his first nicknames was Monkey, and the name stuck because it is so true. He's impish, funny, silly, and occasionally swings from a tree or monkey bars.

The first byline of this blog was "my son will someday be a writer." As predicted, he has become quite a talented young writer.

I hope you enjoy his antics as much as I have!

After helping me figure out how to get the Cuisinart back into the box:

I may not be strong, but I sure am smart!


*Laugh* Can't contradict that one!

Monkey to me, after I said something humorous: Are you trying to be funny?

Me: Yes.

Monkey: it's not working.

D'oh!

You DO realize that was just sarcasm?

*Rolleyes* Oh yes . . . of COURSE. *Laugh*

Driving through the neighborhood this morning:

I just LOVE the way that house is built! With the bridge and then the steps.

Such discriminating taste my young one has. *Laugh*

Also on the way to camp, quite randomly, Jakie asked the question:

Why do they call it a HO-tel? What does "ho" mean?

Dude, I just don't even know how to answer that one . . . *Laugh*

We were talking on the way to school, and the topic of Greece came up. I mentioned that I'd studied there was I was in college, that I took classes there and that I'd lived in an apartment. His reply:

*gasp* You lived in an APARTMENT!?! Then . . . Grandma Kitten lives in an apartment. Is it the same one?

One day, kiddo . . . one day you'll be able to experience the joys of apartment living. *Laugh*

A few months ago, we were telling knock knock jokes. I told the following:
Knock knock!
Who's there?
Little old lady.
Little old lady who?
I didn't know you could yodel!

Monkey and Goldilocks both got a huge kick out of it. The other day, Jakie improved upon the joke:

Knock knock!
Who's there?
Little old lady who.
Little old lady who who?
I didn't know you were an owl that could yodel!

*Laugh*

Mom, I think all of the teachers at the JCC are named "Miss" because it's at the front of all of their names. And I think they're all boys . . . I mean GIRLS and they all have Miss as the first part of their names.

How bizarre . . . must be a prerequisite to working there? *shrugs*

Last night Jakie was complaining that his toes were itching . . . so he pulled off his sock.

The problem IS, the bottoms of my toes are all screwed up and ripped!

I guess collapsing into uncontrollable laughter was PROBABLY not the right response. *Blush*

Last night, Dhoc-li Llama had a friend spend the night. Jakie became quite enamored of Dr. B's friend, Ann. He had to sit next to her while she was having breakfast (to the point where he turned the tv so he could watch his dinosaur show while sitting at the table).

She was trying to open or close a container in the kitchen, and Bob heard Jakie say If you need help with that, you'll want to ask me, because I'm SO strong.

So smooth. *Laugh*
