3 Year Old Wisdom

Some wisdom & insight this morning from Tristan:

~ I tell him he need to go poop on the potty, and he replies "No, I go poop IN the potty"
~ I tell him the toilet paper comes from recycled products, he tells me "No, it comes from the closet" (where we keep our toilet paper)

~ His idea of a phone conversation? "Mommy's fixing us cereal, we're going to Grandpa's, bye I love you, bye I love you." - Short, simple, to the point. Said within 5 seconds by the way.

*This one I've added on from this afternoon:
~I was cleaning out their ears with cotton swabs. Tristan's are notoriously the worst, though luckily not infected. It is something that the boys make a big production over, though it seems to tickled them more than anything. I got Shannon first. Tristan, giggling, ran out of the room. When he came back he announced "I don't have ears anymore!" --- he had run into his bedroom and gotten out his knit Hokie beanie/hat. He was quite proud of himself. (Even if it didn't keep his ears from getting cleaned)

*And this one is from a recent shopping trip to the Co-Op in Roanoke:
~I was looking for some organic cocoa powder (once you switch, there is no going back!), and spotted some organic, live cocoa powder for a good deal. Instead of the usual cannister however, this cocoa was in a bag. When I put it in the cart Tristan announced "Look! A bag of dirt!!" No amount of reasoning could convince him it was anything else.
