during my birthday dinner out at Red Robin, Xander: "Why is he waiting on THAT table? He is our waiter!!!!"
M: "I was SO close to being an only child. OR, I could have had a sweet sister like you Preslie."
Mommy: Xander, Next weekend we are getting your new bunk beds. Aren't you excited?" Xander: "Yeah, man - that is going to be cool." Mommy: "Now you can sleep in your own bed all night - in your big boy bunk beds." Xander: "Mommy - I was thinking we could get two bunk beds - then we would have four beds - and we could all sleep in my room." Mommy: "Xander, you are going to sleep in your bunk beds all by yourself - because you are so big now!" Xander: "That wasn't what I was thinking."
As we exited the "Kickin Christmas" show at Stone Mountain, I commented to Tommy that I was really surprised to see a religious reference in the show (they talked about the true meaning of Christmas being the birth of Jesus and sang "Let there be Peace"). Xander said "Mommy - Stone Mountain probably read it in the bible - it is a good book. It's in there."
Mikaela: Today at school in the lunchroom, I swallowed a cherry seed. Jacob said "Oh no you swallowed a cherry seed. You're going to die in one second." and I said "1 - AHHHHH - I'm still breathing." Xander: Did you die Sissy? (very concerned) Mikaela: HELLO (in the snottiest voice) Xander: Oh.
Xander (when speaking to Santa answering the "what do you want for Christmas question): I want a woman to clean my room.
Mikaela: I'm smarter than you. Xander: I'm smarter than you because I know all about dog bones and dinosaur bones. Mikaela: I'm smarter than you because I can read 2.3 to 3.0 books. Xander: (Silence)
