Bella: Who's that?

Mom: Pastor Dave from church.

Bella: Who?

Mom: You know, the guy who stands in the front of the church, talks and tells stories.

Bella: Oh, I thought that guy was Jesus.

Rules? Who needs 'em?

Mom: So what?"
Evan: "He's mocking the rock star world!"

Mom's fresh, but not sharp

Dad: Sophia*, you didn't drink your Propel.

7 yr old Daughter, going on 13: [eyes rolling] When is mommy going to get it through her thick head that I don't like Propel?

Tolerance: what makes a marriage work

Wifey on cell: ...forgot to tell you, I filled the propane tank, it's in the back of my jeep. In this heat I'm worried the thing will explode and shear off my head!

Hubby: That would be awesome!
