Overheard Recently

Taken by Brian at Warner Lake during my week in Chicago
Aidan, explaining to me who Takeshi, the final ninja, is: "Take Spiderman, combine him with Iron Man, and now make him Japanese."

A great thing about nine year old boys: you don’t have to understand what they’re talking about to enjoy listening to them.

Sean, with great incredulity, to Nolan (age 3): “What?! You don’t know who Babe Ruth was?!”

Nolan at dinner almost every night, after anyone else has said more than a few sentences: “Now my turn! Onceuponatime…um…” and then continues a tale of good witches and bad witches, pirates and monkeys, and all kinds of things we can’t quite make out. Lots of “they come and they go”---one of his favorite plot turns.

Aidan, at a recent BBQ with friends after a crying baby had been handed to me and fell asleep: “You sure have mama-charms, Mom.”

One of the best compliments I’ve ever received.
