The things kids say....

A couple of funny things Zack has said lately that have made me laugh:

While shopping at Costco:
Z: Mom, would you allow me to have a pet monkey?
M: No.
Z: (spoken sadly) Yeah, cause it would probably rip your head off or something.

Snuggling on the couch on Sunday:
M: Kisses Z's head.
Z: You know what this means.
M: What?
Z: You're going to have to get a divorce. So you can marry me!

At church, staring at the cute baby in front of us:
Z: (wistfully) I wish we could have a baby like that!
M: Me too.

Upon waking me up a week ago:
Z: Are we going to the gym today?
M: No. (I took a break for a few weeks and got lazy)
Z: (Yelling) How am I supposed to play with my friends if we never go to the gym?! (It is sad to me that most of his friends are from the gym daycare, we really need to move somewhere with more kids in the neighborhood.)
M: Fine, lets go! (I sure feel better now that I am back in the game! Thanks Zack!)

While at the pool, a couple of weeks ago, he really wanted to jump off the diving board for the first time ever. We went together and I jumped first, when I surfaced he was running to the towel in tears. He kept trying but just chickened out. We went back to swimming and after a while he said to me: "Mom, I am going to do it! I am going to jump off the diving board this time and I am NOT going to quit!" And he did, again and again. Way to go!

Don't you love how little boys want to marry their mommy's!?! The monkey comment was totally funny! Of course that's what a monkey would do, everyone knows that. We should try something like every Wednesday(or whatever day) is play date, one week at my house the next at yours and let the kids play for a couple hours. It will give you a break, me a break, and the kids some fun. Just an idea.

You will be so glad you recorded those! I find that if I don't write things down I forget them forever. It is hard for Dallin to understand that he can't marry me too! We are excited to see you guys in about a week! Have a great trip. Love, Ang

Hi I'm Mike's sister. I am glad that I got to see Alli's family. Your little boy is so cute! My little boy is 8 months younger than yours and I bet they would be great friends.
