Mr. Chatterbox

Conversations with Luke this week:

I was sitting in the den, while Luke was in the kitchen doing something...all of the sudden I hear a big crash and followed by a thousand little crashes. (I was sure he'd gotten into his Daddy's Nerds stash and spilled them all over the floor.)

As soon as the crashes cease, he comes running into the den, jumps into the chair and grins from ear to ear.

I turn to him and say, "Luke Sparks, WHAT was that?!?"

He looks around for a second and replies, "A dream".

Trying desperately to hold back the giggles, I reply,
"that huge crash was just a dream?".

Luke simply responds, "yes".

Well, what do you say to that?

After inspecting the kitchen, I find that he'd tried to sneak a few skittles and spilled the whole container full of them on the floor.


Sunday morning Ryan was dressing Luke for church, and I hear Ryan telling Luke that he's going to be wearing a "wife beater" undershirt.

Luke then comes into our room with a big smile on his face, opens part of his button down shirt to reveal the undershirt and exclaims, "Look Mommy, I have a beef...
a beef whiter on today!"

I think I much prefer the term "beef whiter" to "wife beater", who came up with such a name anyways?


One of the local radio stations starting playing Christmas music today!

On the way to lunch, the Grinch song came on the radio and as he often does, Luke asks me,
"What's this song about?".

I told him it was a song about the Grinch
that's from the Grinch movie.

He asks, "Is he the green man?".

I tell him yes, the Grinch is the green man.

To which he responds, "he looks just like a lobster...
and a frog".

It's true-he does look like a big lobster and a frog. I have never put that together, but he is so right.

And the dream thing-sounds like you might have some trouble with a capital T on your hands!!!!!
