I have no idea where this came from:

Anders: "Dad--when poor people and rich people meet, and poor people go where rich people roam, then if the poor people pick a dandelion, the rich people get mad at them. It's just a dandelion! Or a cool rock."


I've missed Anders and his non-sequitors.

All I get from Louis is: "Cheese", "Tea" and "Birds", but it gets him where he's going, for now.

And I've missed you...nice to see you've landed here.

I think I'll sit back in a nice quiet corner under a shade tree and talk like Louis for a while.  :) Some cheese, tea, and birds (no comments please) and I'll be all set.

On Saturday I had to have a filling.

Upon returning from the dentist I am sat at the table eating lunch with Mrs t and TLD.

ME: I can't feel my nose
TLD (looking all concerned): Daddy do this (touches index finger to nose)
I touch my nose with my index finger, and with comic timing on par with the best she say:
"There it is Daddy!"

Cycling round Roundhay lake, enjoying the warm evening sun, towing Fizz (4) on her trailer bike :

Fizz: Daddy do ducks eat humans?
Me: No!

I think I must have sounded so surprised by her question that she doubted the validity of my answer.

James' (5)  sat in the back of the car waiting for his sister to decide wether to go to karate or not.
I was standing by the car door. She decides not to go.

Me: "do you want to go on your own"
J: silence whilst thinking
Me: "do you want to go to karate on your own"
J: holds both hands out and says "but I can't drive"
Me:  ;D PMSL

Gabrielle now sounds like one of these aliens that Solo meets in the bar in Star War... A very interesting, albeit one-way, conversation!

Took my son (aged nearly 4) to Decathlon in Canada Water yesterday and home by the DLR. For those that don't know the DLR, it's mostly flat until after Shadwell station it descends steeply via a series of S-bends.

Of course he decides to start singing 'The Runaway Train' at this point  :demon:

Anders had been babbling about going on a bike ride. Then:

Anders: "Dad! Who's your imaginary friend?"
Scott: "Um...."
A: "You need to get one! You have to have one to go on the bike ride!" <thinks> "Hawker! That's its name. It's a bird!" <thinks> "Actually, it makes birds! With its tongue. With two flicks of its tongue, a hawk comes out. And flies high into the sky!" <pictures it, and laughs>

When commuting by bike yesterday...

"Daddy, why has your bike got pedals?"
"Daddy, why has your bike not got stabalisers?"
"Daddy, why has your bike got brakes?"

Spoilt kids of today.

We don't fly much (we're too poor) but snuck out to Italy over Easter for a few days by Easyjet. The avatar's (3.5 years) first time on a plane so help keep him amused we bought him a drink and his favourite snack

This week he sees a plane in the sky.

"Daddy , there's a plane."
"Daddy, we've been on that plane."
"I didn't like the olives"

Anders was in the bath. As I went by, I heard him whispering to himself, "goooold...preeeeeecious...."

I swear I haven't read the Hobbit to him yet!  ???

I love hearing about Anders and the things he says.  They always make me smile.

Heading out to the funfair this evening, Mrs Noodley told the Noodley Jnrs that they would have to "take something for your arms" (as it could get cold - sensible adult logic).

Younger Noodley Jnr exclaimed "I know, I'll take my arm bands"

I've trained him well.

As an icecream van went past with it's bell going he said "that means it's run out of ice cream"

Speech day at big sister's school  - as we arrive the Lord Mayor of London walks past  us in full regalia; red coat, lots of gold and a tricorne hat.

The avatar grabs my hand and shouts

"Look Daddy - a Pirate"   ;D
