 Catching up on some great ones...

Jan. 29, 2014
Hyrum came running in this morning to tell me, "Jacob made me throw shoes at Gracie!!"
Gracie is our cat and Jacob is 2.

Hyrum asked me to play doctor with him, so I sat in his designated chair...
First he puts a Gymnast Barbie apparatus around my wrist and another on my foot. Then he puts a Lego between my legs and a whistle between my knees. Next is a bucket on my head, quickly swapped out for a box. A pencil goes up my sleeve, then Ant Man's helmet gets popped in my mouth. Finally, he grabs a comb and starts furiously sawing away on my arm and exclaims, "I took your bone out! HAHAHAHAHA!"
I'm a little concerned about his idea of health care...

It's nighttime. Hyrum just got up to use the bathroom. He is standing in front of the toilet, door open, pants around his ankles, and calls out:
"Dad? I need to talk to you... What happens if you get frozen into an ice cube by an ice dragon?"

It's a question I think we'd all wonder in that

I was using the bathroom. Hyrum started pounding on the door saying he "needed to GO!!"
I guess I wasn't fast enough, because the next thing I heard was,
"Do I need to get a chainsaw and cut the door down?!"

Mar. 10, 2014:
Hyrum just came up to me with a "plate" of "beverages" (aka a box of blocks) and told me to "pick one."
My first choice he said, "No, that's my favorite."
My second choice he said, "No, that's Jacob's."
My third choice he just said flat out, "You can't have that one."
Choice after choice I was denied until he finally sighed and just handed me one - the one I was supposed to have chosen, apparently.
