“Mamma, Mamma! Can you believe it? I made a “Y” poop! Come see!” I go into the bathroom and sure enough, he had pooped in the shape of a Y. I’m so proud (dead-pan).

I told Josiah that the ocean was salty. He said he wanted to taste it. I proceeded to tell him about all the icky stuff that gets in the ocean and why that wouldn’t be a good idea. So he says to me, “What about crab slobber?”

5-year-old Josiah sayings:

Funny things:

Josiah was telling me about Lot and his wife as they fled the burning city of Sodom and Gomorrah. He said, “Lot’s wife looked back and turned into a pillow of salt”.

“You know why I slept in so long this morning, Mamma? So I can have lots and lots of energy.”

I told Josiah, “Man you’ve got good ears”. He replies, “That’s cause I’m young.”

After playing in the snow, Josiah came in with a bunch of snow packed around his face. Grandma Kricket asked him what happened. He put on a sad face and said, “Nobody would have a snowball fight with me, so I had one by myself and got snow in my face.”

“If I eat an artichoke with the “arta” that’s inside choke me?”
Hailey got a hold of one of my fish oil capsules. He was worried about it until I told him it was good for her. He said, “Yeah, because of all the new trees (aka nutrients) in it.”
