The South

Where tea is sweet and accents are sweeter; summer starts in April; front porches are wide and words are long; macaroni and cheese is a vegetable; pecan pie is a staple; Y’all is the only proper pronoun; chicken is fried and biscuits come with gravy; everything is darling and someone is always getting their heart blessed. -unknown

Mom decided to make a list the other day of the funny things that Reese said in one morning. She stopped her list after breakfast:

1. "I have chicken eggs on my feet." (Who knows what that means?)

2. "I don't want to burn up." (when told not to touch the stove) then again louder... "I don't want to burn up! I would cry about it."

3. R: "Is this juice or milk in my cup?"
Me: "It's apple juice."
R: "No, it's green juice. That's kinda like apple juice."

4. After dropping his cup on the floor, he hollered at Chou Chou (the dog) to not bother it. Then he said, "I am very upset with you, Chou Chou."

5. "Gammie, Shrek pulls boogers out of his ears."

(I stopped writing for a while after that one)

6. At lunch, he looks at me and grins and says "Pooty".
Me: "Don't say that, it doesn't sound very nice."
R: "But I just said it."
(we have a lot of who's on first conversations)
R: "Daddy will give me a spanking and I have to stand in the corner. I will say "standing
on the promises"--that sounds sweet."

We will see what tomorrow brings.

I used to do Lilyisms. I keep forgeting them though with my busy self. She asked me if she could eat some blooms (flowers) the other day but then told me she would have to wait until spring since that is when they all come out....

Kids say the funniest things!

I love your post about sticks by the way and the pictures are so beautiful;-)
