the boys are learning new words

yesterday it was Miles....

Miles was trying on his new school uniform. The shorts were a little big. He kept saying, "They're HUGE! I need to get on the staircase so I can fit them." After he said this a few times, I asked, "What do you mean you need to get on the staircase???" He said, "You know! That thing that makes you bigger?" HUH? "You know, like baseball players use them, but they shouldn't?!!" ooohhhhh...steroids!!!

Yep. back story: We happened to pass this huge Target the other day and he heard me say, "That Target is on steroids!" And then, for some reason, I defined steroids.

and here's Avery's story...

About a month ago...

We're piling into the van when Avery says, "Hey Mom, dudes have turd." Totally caught off guard, I asked, "What are you talking about??"
"Mom, it's like you said, 'dudes have turd'."
"I'm quite sure I did NOT say 'dudes have turd.'"
"Yeah...remember this morning? Dudes have turd!"
"Oooohh...you mean Dudes with 'tudes! Yeee-ah, 'turd' means something else altogether."
