Quotable kids

Matthew's been paying attention in school. "I'm a Texan and an American." Personally I think he's got those in the right order. I like the streak of individualism here. "You may all go to hell, and I will go to Texas." (My mother and mother-in-law both said that if Texas were ever to secede they would move here. Hey, I'll take grandparents near us any way I can get 'em.)

Nothing embarasses Melissa. I went in to help her clean up after a number two (she does a ... less than adequate job on her own) and she informed me, "Toilet paper you can blow your nose. Toilet paper you wipe your bottom. You can blow your nose and wipe your bottom!"

"Stick to doing one at a time, Melissa," I told her.
