Let me begin by saying that I LOVE the age of 4!!!
Yes, it's true I have said that about every age so far, but it's really just fun!
Anyhoo, let me continue with the quotes (apparently we've been very "health" focused in the Skinner house recently):
When Caleb asked Alethia to stand by the couch and watch/protect his cars for him while he ran to the next room she said, "But Mommy, it's not good for little girls to just stand still! I HAVE to move because my body needs exercise and it's not healthy for me to just stand here watching his cars!"
She does make a good point!
While playing Boxing on the Wii, Caleb was losing and so he paused the game, turned to me, and said, "Mommy I need some protein to build my muscles. Can I have a peanut butter pop?"
He IS right.....protein DOES build muscle!!
When I asked Caleb to lie down quietly in his naptime he said, "Well my body IS tired, but it still wants me to wiggle."
Now that's just cute! And yes, I did laugh out loud with each of these quotes.....I'm not so good at holding it all in for the sake of being a good parent! No, I just giggle, plain and simple!
