Xanderism: step aside, Jane Fonda

Driving home from making a D.I. donation:

X: "Mommy, do you want to see my new exercise?! It's really great! Do you want to see it?"

M: "Sure, babe."

X: "Are you looking?! Watch!"

M: "Ok, I'm watching!"

X: (curling his two pointer fingers up in front of his face) "Here it is! Watch!...."(SHOVES his fingers into his nostrils).

M: (dumbfounded) "THAT's your exercise?"

X: "Yeah!"

M: "Are you getting a good work-out?"

X: "Oh yeah, Momma!"

Xanderism: smart

X: "Mom, I wrote my name. See?!"

M: "Oh honey! That's wonderful! Who's a smart boy?"

X: "Grandpa."

Ariaism: weighty matters

M: "Aria! It says on this Mothers' Day form card you made me that you think I weigh thirty pounds!"

A: "I didn't know for sure how much you weigh so I just made my best guess. Am I close?!"

M: "Yes! You're VERY close!"

Xanderism: bread

Riding home from Great Harvest Breads, eating our complimentary slices; mine with honey, his with butter.

X: "Mommy, yours has honey and mine has butter! I like honey:)!"

M: "I like honey too. I also like butter! But do you know why I like honey? It's because you're my honey!"

X: "Yeah, and Mommy?! You're my butter!"
