In honor of Linus' 8th birthday, I thought I'd compile a few of my favorite quotes from him.
Linus, who apparently never picked up the word urinal: "I don't get why boys have to use a urine-hole and girls don't."
Linus, pointing at his nipples: "Miles, did you know that these are my nibbles and that they don't do anything? Girls have nibbles too but they are private. Mine aren't private because I'm a boy."
"Don't worry grandma, I can hold my hungries."
"Greta, sometimes you are so ig-noying!"
"Mom, don't you wish that God made it so that we didn't have to poop or pee?"
"Mom, how come when you or dad get frustrated with us you sometimes lose your temperature?"
Linus, when he caught Greta using some of his stickers: "Greta, you are such a cotton-headed-ninny-muggins!"
"Mom, I don't think I can eat my broccoli. I think I read somewhere that it has too much sugar in it." I can't remember if he was 3 or 4 but I DO remember that he couldn't read yet.
On his 5th birthday:
Me: "Linus, I can't believe that 5 years ago today I got to see and hold you for the very first time!"
Linus: "On my birthday!??!" (Like it was the biggest coincidence in the world.)
