A scene from dinner last night

James: Hey, Mom. You know that food that astronauts eat where you just add water and it turns into spaghetti or something?

Me: Uh huh.

James: They should make houses out of that. Then you would just pay like $600 for a drop of water and then it would expand and make a whole house.

Me: I think that's a great idea.

James: Well, I guess if it rained, it could be a problem. The house would get too big.

Kenny: Maybe they could engineer it so that it had a dehydration feature and you could just shrink it back down really small. Then you could move it somewhere else where it fits better.

James: Now that's what I call a mobile home.

I "thumbs up" this post.

my WV: weepent. When your toddler is sobbing, saying their sorry for hitting their baby sister, but really, they're just sorry they're in trouble.

I too love this age. My son is around the same age as James and he comes up with some very crazy-cool stuff sometimes. Life is never boring when you have kids. That's for sure!

That boy of yours is a genius. I can't wait to have a mobile home, astronaut food style.

I wish I could sprinkle a little water on my house...it could use some extra square footage for sure.

Not just funny but decidedly clever too. He takes after his mom, for sure.
