4-year-old sense of humor

4YO: "Mom, do you remember when we got a flat tire and you called triple-A?"

Me: (hmm let me think - full load of stuff from Target plus four kids ages five and under -all hungry for dinner) "yes, I remember."

4YO: "You thought triple-A was going to come to change your tire, but double-A came instead." (snickers heard in the background)

Can I get that in writing?

On the way home from swim last week our 5 1/2-year-old said from the backseat, "Mom, I'm not going to drive until I'm 30."

My response after laughing for several minutes, "Can I get that in writing?"

(I may actually ask him to write it out for me and date it, just so I can kid him about it when he's getting close to 16).

Who wants to be a shoe?

A playful conversation between our almost 4-year-old and our 2-year-old:

4YO: "Who wants to be a shoe?!"
2YO: "Not me!"
4YO: "But you can step on people and make them flat!"
