Jared says...

With my camera currently BROKEN, you'll have to suffer through photoless posts, unless I go through the photo archives and dig up some favorites (a definate possibility in the very near future). If my camera weren't BROKEN, I'd have taken a picture to share with you of Connor's knees, with three seperate scrapes on each knee (he looks like we beat him!). Or I might have taken a picture of Connor with his head stuck through the potty seat (the one that sits on the big toilet). Or I might have taken a picture of Connor sitting in my basket of folded laundry, happily tossing it out all over the floor. But my camera is BROKEN (have I mentioned yet that the camera is BROKEN??? Because it is.). Or I might have taken pictures of Emily in her recital outfit that we just got Friday night. If my camera weren't BROKEN, I'd have been set for a few days with good blog posts.

That being said, I've been keeping some notes on more funny things Jared has said. I'd intended to gather a few more before posting, but I'm in need of something to post. So here's what I have:

1)
Jared: "We're hanging out, right dad?"
Dan: "Are we HANGING out, or hanging OUT?" (ever the comedian)
Jared: "We're hanging out. Like monkies. But not."

2)
while getting ready to watch Bambi with the kids the other night, Jared pipes up, "This is about a deer that talks." I'm sure that's exactly what the creators of Bambi were hoping people get out of the movie...

3)
While out running errands with his grandpa (my FIL), Jared was being really well-behaved and helpful, and my FIL told him, "Jared, you are such a good boy, I'd take you anywhere with me." Jared was quick to reply, "How about McDonalds?"

4)
While preparing some french toast (following a recipe from the cookbook Deceptively Delicious where you use some carrot puree in the egg mixture), Jared spotted me and said, "I don't like those ones." I informed him that he'd eaten THREE the last time I made them and he liked them then. He said, "I didn't see what they were last time!" (but wait, there's MORE!). So then as he's eating them, complaining about them tasting bad, I say, "Jared, you can't even taste the carrot in there, if you hadn't seen me add them in, you'd never even know!" Jared said, "Yes I would, I have really sensitive eyes."

Ha! That's cute. It is sometimes soooo hard not to laugh at them when they say those funny things.

Also, Olivia loves to throw all my folded laundry all over the floor, too. I think she believes that folding laundry is my favorite thing to do and wants to make me happy by giving me a second opportunity to do it. Isn't that nice of her?

Leah said...

LOL Kaci, you can't even taste the carrots, it's only 2Tbsp of puree in four eggs...

okay I need that book. I've thought about getting it a million times.

I love that he has sensitive eyes.

I've got some mileage out of the Jared and Grandpa Dan "McDonald" story.
TOO FUNNY!

Just a thought...I'm ALWAYS forgetting to take my camera with me (like when I go to Jodi's & catch the kids doing something goofy, or when I babysit my friend's baby & "Psycho Kitty"), so I got this "bright" idea--doesn't happen very often. If I have to, I take pictures with my cell phone & e-mail them to myself for downloading when I get back home. Not sure if this would work for you, but just a thought...

Sooo funny, I love the things that kids come up with. I was laughing really hard when I read that. I read it to my mom as well and we laughed (for me the second time).
