Bentrup Babblings

Me:  I can't believe you don't like blueberries, they're so yummy.
John: Mom, let me teach you a lesson.  God made everyone different.
Guess he told me

Greta: (after sleeping in later than normal).  I was having a dream and forgot to wake-up.
Well..that's an interesting excuse...I forgot to wake up.

Me: Greta, do you know what gravity is
Greta: yes, gravity is that thing that keeps you from floating all over the place and if it were't for gravity I would probably be floating over there...no, over there, I'd be floating up there...no, I think I'd be floating up there, no, I'd be floating over there.  Anyway, sometimes, I wish there was no gravity, so that I could fly like a bird.

John: (After taking a teeny, teeny, tiny, tiny scrap of paper out of Elsa's mouth). I saved Elsa's life.
We're just a wee bit dramatic, aren't we?

Yes, her dress is on backwards...it's the new fad, don't ya know?

 Greta: John if you come upstairs with me, I'll play with you tomorrow.
John:  How long?
Greta:  A half-hour
John:  How about one minute extra of a half-hour
Greta: Fine, I'll play with you for 31 minutes.
John: Is that one minute more than a half-hour?
Greta: yes it is. a half-hour is 30 minutes and one minute extra is 31 minutes, so I'll play with you for 31 minutes tomorrow
John: ok, it's a deal
Pint-sized negotiators they are.

Yes, his shirt is on inside out too.  We are just inside-out- backwards people.

Greta: John, let me read you a bible story.  Do you know about the Garden of Eden..
John: No, I don't know about the Garden of Eating. 

So, right now, we have our old TV which actually has a VHS player and we have A TON of old VHS tapes
Greta: (when deciding what movie to watch): I'm just going to watch on the Kindle Fire because it takes SO LONG to rewind those dumb old tapes and I hate waiting for them to rewind.
They make me feel so old.

  4. These are all priceless. But I really love "Mom, let me teach you a lesson. God made everyone different." Out of the mouths of babes!
