Blueberry Pancakes

I just finished talking to my son about what to have for dinner.  Blueberry pancakes are really sounding yummy but he doesn't care for blueberries and wasn't too thrilled about that idea.  While trying to sell the idea, I let him know it would be very easy to make him regular pancakes.  (And thinking, he's made pancakes several times, he should know this... )  He tells me, "Ya I know.  You add the toppings after pouring the batter.  I learned about it from a computer game I use to play."

Overheard Piece of Conversation

While at the store, I hear a mom kindly telling her child: 

"No - buying stuff SPENDS our money, 
NOT buying stuff SAVES our money."

There's a certain 6 year old boy that my daughter considers her little brother.  Today that little guy was helping her collect the chickens eggs.  Now it's very normal for him to ask me if he can bring this or that to his house so it took me a little by surprise when he came in today, carrying an egg in each hand, and asked me:  "Can I have these to egg my house?"

Me:  "Do you know what that means, to egg your house?"

Him:  "Ya, it means to throw eggs at my house."

Me:  "I don't think your mom would like that very much."

Him:  "No, she's okay with it."

Thanks for Hulk!

My nephew, 2 years old, slammed his finger in the bedroom door.  It ripped his fingernail off completely.

My brother-in-law was there and had an army military issued first aid kit and after taking care of the finger, wrapped up his hand in the green wrap to make sure he didn't pick at the finger.  My 2 year old nephew's response?  After staring at it for a minute he replies:

"Hulk!  Smash!"

And proceeded to walk around punching everything he saw repeating very excitedly, "Hulk!  Smash!"
