There was a man stocking shelves at the grocery store. He had a duster in his back pocket. Reed saw him and shouted, "Dad, that man has a chicken tail!"
In trying to convince me to let him have some more outside time one afternoon: "The kids might need me. They always need my help scooping sand."
Using logic to convince me to let him play at a playground near a huge gaping hole complete with a ten-feet mound of dirt (though fenced off with flimsy plastic): "Well, I know you don't want us to get muddy, but it gots a gate."
When I said, "I love you" while putting him to bed: "I too."
When Reed accidentally bumped him and didn't notice: "Sorry. Okay? Yes."
After seeing how much my belly button pokes out when I took off my shirt: "Baby! Baby! Baby!" (while poking my belly button)
And every time we drive to Lily's house, he can't help but say her name in gleeful tones the entire way there: "Yee-yee! Yee-yee!"
