Like most kids mastering language skills, Sarah said some really cute things between the ages of 3-5. The funny sayings faded away for a few years, but this summer we have been delighted by more "Sarahisms". These gems had me rolling....

Sarah and Ella were playing with blocks one afternoon. Ella believes her job is to knock down any and all construction and Sarah was getting frustrated. Mitch explained that this is how Ella plays blocks and that Sarah would have to be the more mature one and deal with it. Sarah mutters under her breath, "But I don't want to be the mature one."

One evening Mitch was going over Sarah's final school grades with her. His concern is the inconsistency in her grades -- one assignment she'll score a 97 and the next one will be a 65. His point was that she obviously can score high grades and wondered what happened with the low grades. Her response: "Well, those final grades aren't TERRIBLE." His response: the goal is much higher than terrible!

We were teaching Sarah to play UNO Hearts and I commented how much fun it will be when Sarah is about 16-17 and the other 2 kids will be old enough so we can all play cards together. Sarah said, "Well I'm almost 13. Kinda. You know... 13... ish...." (She's 8!)

2 Thoughts From Others:
