No time for my usual book-length post; just a few funnies today.

Bugga took a shower by himself today and yelled at the top of his lungs:

Buddha in the car:
"I know why there are so many people that live here. Because God wants them to live on Earth so they don't float in outer space and to Hell if they make a bad choice."

Bugga ran down the hallway the other day and I heard telltale grunting.
Me: "Bugs, are ya poopin'?"

Bugga: "Yeah. I need ta poop in the closet . . . because I do that."

I told Buddha yesterday that I wouldn't be able to make it to his soccer game today. His response?
Buddha: "I don't care if it's you . . . I just want SOMEBODY there!"

A while back, I was advancing on a squealing Bugga with fingers outstretched and eyes gleaming, ready to hoist him over my shoulder when . . .
Bugga: "If you carry me, I'm gonna spank your little bottom."

Oy! (But he does win points for such a flattering description of my rear end, eh?) :D

Teaching Bugga about the value of good hygiene . . . .
Me: "If you don't brush your teeth every day, they are going to fall out."

Bugga: "I know, I'll close my mouth - like this . . . . Mm mmm hmmm."

(Maybe I ought to have clarified that they would fall out of his gums, not his mouth.)

Buddha wrote down his chore on a sticky note so he wouldn't forget what he needed to do:

*Looooove it!* :D

Here's another one for you. When your boys were at my house yesterday I said to Nathan "I don't like it when I am trying to clean up and you are going around making messes" and your little Buddha piped up and said "hey-my mom always says that!" I thought it was funny.
