Kid Quotes

Today's quotes are brought to you by Lily, age 6, and Esther, age 2:

Lily, distressed to see mom cutting broccoli for a dinner dish:
"Mom, don't you know that adding broccoli to that unimproves the flavor?"

And my favorite, from this morning's family devotional--
Dad (reading about the baptism of Jesus): "The Holy Ghost descended in the form of a ___" (pauses for the children to respond)
Esther: "Octopus!"

Needless to say, it took us awhile to return to some semblance of reverence and continue the scripture reading...

Hehehe I like Lily's approach :) And Esther's comment had me laughing for a while. I told Marat about it and I guess it put octopi on his mind because when he had his hand on my belly later that evening, feeling our baby's usual enthusiastic kicking, he said: "hmmm, maybe he's really an octopus? That would explain so many kicks..."

LOL! That's hilarious! I especially like Esther's comment. There's something about humor and the spirit. Do you remember the time when we were having apartment prayer, and someone tooted quite loudly? I think the spirit slammed the door on the way out that night. :)

Lily was very diplomatic in her approach. :)

Hahahahaha!!!! Just love it! Oh my gosh, the octopus thing. So wonderful.

When my daughter was about 5 we were sitting in church during the sacrament and I asked her if she was thinking about Jesus.
"Yes", she replied.
After a pause I thought to ask "What are you thinking about Jesus?"
She said, "I'm thinking about Jesus in the Garden of Yosemite."

Marat's comment about his sibling maybe being an octopus is brilliant. =D
