I am often amused by the quirky antics and larger than life personality of my 4 year old. Though his "more is better" philosophy of life frequently gets him in trouble (as in "more" noise, "more" bugging his sister, "more" of whatever he shouldn't be doing), he is always good for a laugh. Here are a few of his latest...

Today, while running around the living room:
"Mom, look at me! I'm a Olympics! I'm Olympicsing!".

A few days ago I found him working on an elaborate set of line drawings paired with pretend writing. When I asked him what it was he condescendingly replied,
"It's a video game instruction manual, of course".

While we were test driving a car, he said quite seriously,
"This is a sweet ride guys! This baby can really go!"
I honestly have no idea where he heard either of those expressions! I could not stop laughing.

Wow, that Zach kid of yours is certainly all boy! Thanks for sharing his funny quips. I think my favorite was the "sweet ride" quote... It gave me a funny start to my day. :o)

I agree with Jen, the sweet ride comment is awesomely funny.

It was truly funny! I think I figured out where he got the word "sweet". I caught myself saying it today, a lot! I had no idea.
One more funny moment today while playing a computer game with him he says, "Mom, you're a maniac!".
Cracks me up!

He is so very funny and clever and also so thoughtful and deep...for a four year old! He really surprises me all the time.
