funny sayings

Roen: "I smell the good smell of butter."
Simone: "I can't. It's just very tasty." (upon being asked to stop eating her hair.)
Roen: (while thrumming and jumping up and down.) "Look, I can use myself as a banjo."
Simone: "Yours has dots. Yours doesn't have dots." (trying to describe the difference between carbonated and non-carbonated drinks.)

Simone: "I think you're like - old." (when she met her great grandmother.)
Roen: "How are you going to play tag with a walker?" (to his 92 year old great aunt)
Roen: "When you stand like that, you look like a little drop of honey." ( a compliment for mommy?)
Simone: (To Daddy) "You're not beautiful like mommy - you're old like grandma."

babies are good

Ro and Sim have been highly focused on childbirth lately. Simone says stuff like, "When I grow up, I'm going to have a baby in my tummy just like my mommy!" Both kids want me to reinact their births a lot. I give them the one minute version rather than the 18 hour version in Roen's case (4 hours for Simone). They are both so fascinated by all discussion of pregnancy and babies. Unfortunately, I don't know anyone who happens to be pregnant. Luckily, we ran into a pregnant woman on Wednesday and she let Roen pat her belly and talk to her baby. He was soooooo thrilled to see baby growing in action. He wants us to find the woman so we can see her baby when it's done.

Update: (5/13)
Roen got to see the baby girl. He kept going on about how cute she was.
