Max Power, south of the border.

So, we're playing out back on the slip-n-slide. Ade's giving it his best run and slide, but not quite sliding as far as he wants.

Me: "Gotta run faster pal."

Ade: Yelling, "I'm going for max power!" Running, slipping, sliding, splashing, etc.

Ade: "What does max mean?"

Me: "It means maximum, like the most of something. The highest amount."

Ade: "Oh, okay." Off he goes running again and yelling more loudly, "MEXICAN power."

Adding insult...

So after that last zinger, he brought this while I was pushing him on the swing today.

Ade: "How long is tabby going to live?"

Me: "I don't know, maybe 15 years or more. Little dogs can live a while."

Ade: "Will she be really old, just like you?"

Young at heart.

Ade: "How long am I going to be alive?"

Dad: "Hopefully a long, long time. Long enough to see me become an old man."

Ade: "You already are old."

Ade: "We made a puzzle of a fire-hydrant at school today, and there was a donation."

Me: "The puzzle was donated?"

Ade: "No, there was a donation on the fire hydrant. You know, the fire men stay at the fire station and play with the donation, and play basketball all day."

Me: "You mean a dalmation?"

Ade: "Yeah, a donation."

Away in a Manger

Ade, singing the second verse of Away in a Manger: "The cattle are glowing..."

Going for a ride

Ade, jumping on my back: "Dad, give me a penny bank ride."

Last night/ Yesterday night

Ade: "Remember what we did yesternight?"
