Kid Quotes

Charlie announced the other day,"I've got some balls in my purse." This wouldn't have been so funny, except that she says purse like puss.

Seeing me pulling out the art supplies box, Oliver asks, "Are we doing arts and craps?"

We went to eat at a salad place. Oliver had some banana chips with his dinner. "Daddy, these are the best banana croutons I've ever had!"

While getting ready to go out and play Charlie confides to me, "Mommy, I've got a big plan. I'm going to catch Ollie as fast fast as I can."

While looking at 7's new computer screens and the changing screen savers, Oliver asked, "Where'd you collect those? Were they on eBay or something?"

Charlie was spellbound by a screensaver of stars and said, "How'd outer space get in there?"

7's computer has glowing dials on the front. Oliver was trying to point them out to a friend. "Look! Lookit Maria! Daddy's blue balls."

By the way, I have been blogging on my myspace site for a while now. You can read it at http://blog.myspace.com/girlusrandomness
Re-entering society via the purchase of a prepaid Visa debit card today had me feeling weird. I have been operating on a cash/ money order only basis for so long, that it really bothers me to have money on a card and not physically in my possession. We had some hard times a few years back and ended up filing bankruptcy because we had to pay for everything with credit for a while. So now I feel weird getting another card, even though it's a prepaid debit card. I literally can't spend money I don't have, however, the temptation to spend money I shouldn't is still there. The world of eBay is open to me now. It was always harder to buy things since I had to send a money order, now I can do it all online. Tempting. I shall have to exercise caution and remind 7 to do so as well.
