Jay shared this one with me. It happened last night while I was working.

We let Ethan watch some bedtime TV before it's lights out. So Ethan was in his room watching cartoons and Jay was downstairs watching his own shows. He hears Ethan running around upstairs and yells up to him "Ethan! Get back in bed!" The running around stops for about 15 minutes, then he hears it again. This time Jay is mad. He storms up the stairs, turns off the TV and tells Ethan that he is only allowed out of bed if he has to pee.

As Jay is walking away, Ethan says, "what about if I have to poop?" Jay doesn't answer him, because this is typical Ethan. Ethan is one of those kids that just doesn't know when to keep quiet.

So that's last night. This afternoon, Jay picks Ethan up from my sisters house and Ethan said "Daddy? You never answered me yesterday. I asked you what I was supposed to do if I had to poop." Now mind you, Jay is sick with a really bad cold (swine flu?) so he just wasn't in the mood so he says to Ethan "Sorry, I forgot." Ethan's response? "You forgot what? That I had a butt?"

The Downriver cruise is today. Just for fun, Ethan and I drove the route in our car. Here's the conversation that followed:

Ethan: What is going on?

Me: It's called a cruise. People come to sit and watch old cars.

Ethan: That's silly.

Me: I think so, too. Old cars are boring, but it's fun to people-watch.

Ethan: You mean you can sit and watch old people, too?

You really have to be cartoon savvy to get this post, so I'll include pictures to help you out. Here's the latest Ethan-ism.

Me: Ethan, what should we name the baby if it's a boy?

Ethan: Tyler!

Me: How about if it's a girl?

Ethan: Pinky Dinky Doo!

Ethan: And if the baby comes out brown, we can name him Little Bill!

(At this point I had to pick Ethan's daddy up off the floor from laughing so hard)

This is Tyler:

This is Pinky Dinky Doo:

And this would be Little Bill:
