Josh is quite possibly the funniest kid I've ever met, and he just happens to be mine. I think the perfect word for him is delightful. He says things all the time that make me laugh, as well as question how his little mind works. Usually he is thinking about wild animals. As we speak he is in the other room watching "Big Cat Diary" after begging me to let him. Anyway, here are some latest quotables from Joshy.

In the car listening to the radio:
"Mom, this girl sounds hot! You know, like kind of spicy. She sounds good to me. A little sassy. But Mom did you know that you are hot? I promise that's a good thing. Not like you are on fire, just really spicy." (Heaven help me. Where did he get any of this?)

Josh: "Hey Mom, is an avacado a fruit?"
Me: "I don't know. I think so."
Josh: "I knew it! I knew a fruit bat would like one!"

Me: "Ok Josh you can watch some cartoons now. What do you want to watch?"
Josh: "Hmmm. I don't know mom. Got anything violent?" (Great.)

After a dentist visit:
"Hey Dad! I get to get another silver tooth! And I didn't have any cavities!"

After overhearing me say to Chad, "I'm just losing my patience."
Josh: "Hey Mom, if you want to lose your patience more, just eat vegetables. They have no calories."

Everything ends with "lemon squeezy."
"Hey Josh, how are ya?"
"Great, great lemon squeezy!"
"How is your dinner?"
"Yummy, yummy lemon squeezy."
Really it goes with everything. Try it sometime.

After I keep finding him while playing hide and go seek,
"Hey Mom, how do you keep finding me? Is Jesus telling you? Cause that's cheating."

"Mom, I think the Holy Ghost would be friends with Casper. He's nice. Not too spooky."

While I'm sweeping off our front porch,
"Hey Mom, watcha doin? Is the Holy Ghost gonna live on our front porch now?" (after an FHE lesson on the spirit being in our home.)

"Mom you better look out or I'm gonna poke you like a narwhale. Really mom. I'm serious."

About 20 times a day,
"Mommy, I love you. You are the besties."

Love that kid.

Jessie and Taylor Miller said...

p.s. you are definitely spicy!

Sarah said...

What a cute boy! And you are hot and spicy! I'm glad to see you're blogging more. Very funny.

Amy and Clark said...

What would we do without the hilarious things that come out of that boy's mouth. You better keep him away from all hot and spicy girls when he's a teen!

PS--I think we should TOTALLY plan a girls getaway. Maybe this summer? Even an overnighter would be fun...a night in SLC or Park City.

Marg, Joshy quotes are my absolute favorite. He really is delightful. And if you are wondering where he gets might want to read your previous post about the spicy sausage. We read these out loud and were cracking up. I even went back and read some of the old ones because I didn't want the fun to end. How I love that boy!!!
