Kids Unscripted; Chapter 14

Talia: (to Ben with her play food set) "Would you like a big tonk of icecream on a cone?"
Ben: "What's a 'tonk?'"
Talia: "A big 'ole scoop!"
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Talia: "Why don't they make high-toed shoes instead of just high heeled shoes?
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Me: (to Ben as we are driving back from Dubai) "I wonder if Elias is hungry..."
Elias: "BIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIITE!" 
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
 Talia: "I'm an 'iguala!"
Me: "What's an 'iguala'?'"
Talia: "It's like an iguana and a koala at the same time!"
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Ben: (to Talia) "I wonder what you'll look like when you're 25..."
Talia: "I guess you'll just have to wait and find out because I don't know either."
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Me: (to Talia) "Do you want some spicy pasta?"
Talia: "No, because it might make me catch on fire!"
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
 Me: (to Elias) "Do you want to sit up here?"
Elias: "DOWN!"
Me: (later) "Do you want to go up stairs?"
Elias: "DOWN!"
Me: "What's the opposite of 'up,' Elias?"
Elias: "DOWN!"
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
 Talia: "I want to use all of the colors of the alphabet!"
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Talia: "When I was little, I had surgery and the doctor took out the bad chimney so it wouldn't mess up the good one."
Ben: "Chimney!? Do you mean 'kidney'?"
 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Talia: "I'm going to draw this with 'pork dots.'"
Me: "What are 'pork dots'?"
Talia: "Like polka dots, but with little pigs everywhere!"
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
 Me: "What are you drawing, Talia?"
Talia: "Something fuzzy-armed and toady-eyed!"
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Ben: "Talia, are you made out of questions?"
Talia: "No, I'm made out of a little piece of my Mommy, a little piece of my Papi and dirt."
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Talia: "Why doesn't a toad have a neck?"
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Talia: "Mommy, do we have some sort of telescope bone, like behind our eyes or something?"
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
 Talia: "This lotion smells yummy! But I guess I won't eat it since it's not a food like mashed potatoes or something..."
 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
 Talia: "Do a lot of people have straight hair?"
Me: "Yes."
Talia: "Do a lot of people have curly hair?"
Me: "Yes."
Talia: "Well, I guess that just means there are a lot of people..."
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Me: "Talia, how much soup do you want?"
Talia: "Enough so that I don't have too much..."

  1. She cracks me up. I love these so much. Sorry I have been such a terrible blogger and commenter. Hope you guys are doing great. I still picture Elias as a baby but I guess he's not anymore. Benjamin will be 2 the end of the month, how time flies by.
