Overheard: A sampling from the weekend

Owen, immediately upon waking Saturday morning: “I need milk. I need a bowl of cereal.”

Olivia, to me: “Why do you always wear shoes? Shoes steal joy.”

Bryan, to the girls: “It’s not okay to fight, let alone draw blood.” 

Owen, as he’s trying to remove Katie’s iPhone case: “I need that.” (Points to a hammer.)

Ava: “Mom, Owen’s doing something dangerous! Look, Dad!”

Bryan: “Owen, get down!”

Ava: “It gets worse, Dad. Watch.” (Owen tosses himself off the back of the sofa, from a standing position.) 

Owen, gleefully, a moment later: “I fall down!” 

Ava, after I asked her to check on her brother shortly after he showered: “Owen was just watching the neighbor mow his lawn.” 

Rebecca: “On the deck? He’s naked.”

Ava: “Yes, I know. He was on the deck butt naked, watching the neighbor mow his lawn. Naked.”

    I love your family. Owen is such a sweet, mischievous, daredevil little boy! Ava is hilarious, and Olivia sounds just like me at that age with her love of sleep, hatred of shoes, and tangled hair.
