The things this child says...

At her soccer game on Saturday, she spied a candy bar wrapper on the ground and picked it up.

Me:  Ashley, put that down, it's trash.

Ashley:  NO, Mommy.  I have to pick it up if I want to save the world.

Me:  Don't worry about it, the world will be fine.

Ashley:  NO, Mommy.  If I don't pick it up, the world will esplote.

Then, at dinner the other night:

Scott:  Ash, do you want more pasta?

Ashley:  Daddy. You know I'm not a pasta girl.  I'm a pizza girl.

And after soccer today:

Me:  Did you have fun?

Ashley:  Yes, but there was this one boy who said I touched the ball with my hand and I didn't touch the ball with my hand and he kept saying "You touched it! You touched it!" and I didn't.

Me:  Well, he doesn't sound very nice.

Ashley:  Yes, I think he was a spoiled rat.

I could go on and on.  I think 5 years old is my favorite age so far.  :-)

My 4 year old keeps picking up random trash and when I tell her "EW that's gross put it down!" she gives me a guilt trip about how littering is bad for the earth. Then I let her throw it away. It's really quite cute.

Hayden when thought a phase where he was all about saving the earth. I will spare you the details of how much dirty trash I found hidden in his room.

5 is a great age. I need to write down all the things my boy said when he was 5. They were much nicer than the things he is saying now that he is almost 9.
