-The other night Payne popped bright eyed into the office, long after he had been in bed.
It went something like this:
Payne: "Mommy! Daddy! Supping woke me up!"
Me: "What, Payne?"
Payne: "Supping runned up inside my eyyyyeeees."
Dan: (picks Payne up) "What is in your eyes?"
Payne: "Buuut it was full of pepper, and full of strings, but it wasn't full of poop."
Dan: (suppressing a laugh) "You have a lot of energy don't you son."
Payne: (blink, blink)
Dan: "Lots of energy"
Payne: (Heavy sigh)
(I'm laughing silently in the corner)
Dan: "It's time to go back to bed."
Payne: "I need supping to make my eyes OPEN (un-pinches his thumb and index finger) and CWOSE (closes thumb and index finger in dramatic fashion).
(I escort Payne to bed)
Payne: "Seeee? My wady bug helps me to see, and..."
(I shut the door on him mid-sentence)
- This morning Genevieve ran up to Dan and fiercely hugged his knees while chanting "Miiiine. Miiiiine. Miiiiine."
- Also, there's this commercial on right now that shows some antelope. Payne asked us once what they were called, and now when he sees the commercial he shouts "HEY! There's the cantaloupes!"
