From the mouth of Miles

Posted on Wednesday~March 10, 2009

The helpful brother:
Miles was trying to keep Asher out of a room and went to slam the door closed.

I said, "Watch out for his fingers!"

His reply? "I'm just trying to help you cause I'm a capable kid!"

----------
Potty training continues to go really well (or not):
I know he has to use the bathroom, but he's stalling so I say, "You realize if you pee in your Spiderman costume I'll have to wash it so you won't be able to wear it."

"That's OK BY ME! If I pee in it, I don't mind."

----------
On baking:
We made cookies together and I have no idea what happened to them, but they turned out awful. Flat wafers that tasted more like flour than sugar. I'm guessing some ingredients were added when my back was turned. Upon trying the nasty cookies Miles said,

"These cookies are not very tasty...it's like they're not very...sugary. I guess we'll have to call them healthy cookies."

----------
In the buff:
He has taken off his clothes and is walking around bare, carrying different clothes. Ryan asks him if he thinks he's going to take a bath.

"I'm not naked for THAT...I'm about to get UN-naked."
----------

I'm over at the Mama Manifesto today, thinking about the inevitable teen years and how a person goes about handling them. Will I be footloose? Or fancy free? You can check that out here. See you there. If you want.

The cookies sound a whole lot like the actual healthy ones Mom tried to make all the time when we were kids. I didn't realize just how much like hockey pucks they were until I was older.

Sabrina said...

I love that miles! And I miss him too! Can I come over soon?

Jillene said...

Miles is a hoot!!

Lara said...

Miles is indeed a capable kid. Not least, capable of giving me a huge smile when you do these posts.

Keyona said...

If he thinks that bad of health food at this age you are in trouble. Just sayin'. :o)

Kristina P. said...

So, did the cookies get eaten?

Jami said...

I love kids!

Melanie J said...

Yeah, we're working on debunking the healthy=tasteless myth around here. So far...not so good!

Evolving Mommy Catherine said...

Funny that he think not so tasty = healthy.

LisAway said...

What a cutie. He's so smart. I love "I'm not naked for THAT. . .I'm about to get UN-naked." the best. What a cute kid. I would burst because of the cuteness if I were you.

Kimberly said...

He is such a clever boy!

Debbie said...

I just love that Miles. I'm still torn about what career I see in his future - but he'll be great at it, I have no doubt about that.

Kate Coveny Hood said...

I love kids like that. I'm just waiting for one of mine to pick up the "kids say the darndest things" one liners.

Lee of MWOB said...

Kid lines are the best. Plain and simple. I love the whole peeing in the Superman costume. Hilarious. Now I'm heading over to the other place...

Izzy 'N Emmy said...

lol!! He is such a funny kiddo! And so smart! I like the "un-naked"!

Jen said...

Oh I just love the stuff that comes from the mouth of babes!

Mylestones said...

"That's ok by me!" A classic potty training quote! So funny!

Muthering Heights said...

Oh my...he is just hilarious!

Becky said...

What a kid! He does sound very capable.

LexiconLuvr said...

I love "out of the mouth of Miles" days! He's seriously one of the smartest kids. Capable, sugary, un-naked...

Angie said...

So, so funny. What a quick little mind he has.

Abra said...

Too funny! The things that come flying out of their mouths!?!

sara said...

I have said many times that I wish I'd had a blog when my kids were little.....those are the precious things said that you would normally forget over the years...now you have them to remember!!!

Francesca said...

RosyRose said...

And he's spot on....non tasty often=healthy:)

Beck said...

He sounds like just such a GREAT kid. The unnaked bit made me laugh out loud, REALLY loudly. HAW!

Kazzy said...

I love the capable kid thing!

Eudae-Mamia said...

Brilliant, that one!!

"Un-naked" - kid's reasoning makes so much better sense than adult's.

Lisa @ Crazy Adventures in Parenting said...

We are so similar it is downright criminal. Did you see my flat cookies post the other day!? LOL

I swear you are my astral twin, my sistah-from-anutha-mutha ;)

Tooj said...

I am soooooo eye and eye with him on the healthy cookies being not very tasty. It's why I will never have any in my house. :) Gooooo Oreos!

Peanut said...

Un-naked... that's a good one. I'm going to use that!

Motherboard said...

You kid sounds simply delicious!

MoziEsmé said...

Healthy cookies, huh? Yep - everything that doesn't taste good is healthy...
