Gavin: Are there any bonus features on this DVD?
Heath and Me: ???
G: I’m saying it in a different way. I mean is there any dessert? This meal is like a DVD.
Parker: Stop! I’m trying to be sick.
Parker: Mom, can I have strange cheese?
Me: You mean string cheese?
Parker: Yeah, strange cheese.
Parker: You know witches aren’t real but we still talk about it in the Pledge of Allegiance.
Parker repeated what he said before thinking that would help me figure out how witches fit into the Pledge of Allegiance.
Me: Oh! For which it stands!
Me: Gavin, I’m just teasing you.
Parker: It’s not funny to tease people.
Me: For me it is.
Parker: Teasing is mean.
Heath: There’s a difference between teasing in a lighthearted joking way and bullying.
Gavin: We learned about bullying at school.
Heath: Gavin, I know you will never bully anyone.
Parker: I can lift a bowling ball behind me and throw it because I’m so strong!
Me: These mashed potatoes are so creamy! (This is our way of saying welcome to the random conversation.)
Heath: Parker, we were talking about bullies not bowling with a ball.
Me: Oh that’s what he meant! I’m glad you followed that train of thought because it came out of nowhere for me!
Gavin: I’m going to be 33 in 16 years.
Heath: You’re not going to be 33 in 16 years.
Gavin: Yeah. I did the math.
Heath: What’s 16 + 7?
Heath: 16 + 7 is not 13 either! What kind of math are they teaching you at that school?
Parker: Not everything is yours.
Gwen: Everything MINE!
Me: Who peed on the floor in the bathroom?
Parker: Not me!
Gwen: I did.
Me: You pee in the potty not on the floor.
Parker: I know why they call it strange cheese. Because it looks so strange.
Me: You’re the only one who calls it that. It’s actually string cheese.
Parker: Oh, I get it now!
