The stuff Calder says . . .

After Hugh gave Calder a stern talking to after a timeout, Calder quips, 

"Something smells."

It was Hugh's garlic breath.

When we were driving home from the Meewasin Valley Authority after making our mask on Wednesday Calder says to me, "We need a baby." My mind was racing. Seriously - does this kid need a sibling or what? He is obsessed! 

I asked him why he wanted a baby and he told me, "We need a baby and a stroller. . . because then we woulda got to use the elevator."

As we were leaving the Meewasin Valley Authority the moms with strollers headed up the elevator. Calder wanted to go, but I told him only moms with strollers got to take it. 

Apparently Calder isn't obsessed with getting a baby - he just has excellent reasoning (and what math teacher wouldn't like that!).

On our Monster and Gargoyle tour, we saw a man with long dark hair running on the trail down by the river. He was not wearing a shirt and his skin looked like leather. I am not exaggerating one bit. Ask ANY of the other moms. I wanted to run a bit to catch up to him so I could "accidentally" brush my hand on his back to see if it was actually leather. Crazy!

As we drove home I asked Calder if he had fun at on our outing. He responded, "yes." Wanting a bit more feedback I asked him what he liked. He said, "Everything . . . but not that lady without any shirt."

Bahahahahaha! I guess Calder was so traumatized by the leather skin, that he failed to realize that the long hair was on a man! I sniffled my laughs and Calder and I had a quick chat about the importance of wearing sunscreen.


  1. Haha... kids say the darnest things! They don't have a filter. They will make you laugh and they will make you cry! These were funny!

  2. "Was that a bag of leather that just ran by?" Bahahahaha!
