Say what?!

Tonight at dinner -

Corban: Mommy, you have to eat veggies so that you won't be steamy
Joshua: So you won't be stinky?!
Corban: No, so you don't steam.
Me: Hmmm...What is Steam?
Corban: Mom, listen. You know the Polar Express and Thomas.
Me: Yeah.
Corban: Well, they have steam.
Me: Yes, they do.
Corban: So, they put coal in them and it makes them go super fast and then they steam.
Joshua: What does that have to do with vegetables?
Me: Do you steam if you don't eat your veggies?
Corban: No, it hurts. But, I don't hurt right now.

We also sat and told ridiculous jokes at the dinner table too. Here is a brilliant one:

Corban: How did the chicken cross the road, Daddy?
Joshua: I don't know.
Corban: He got ran over by the train.

Several more of Corban's jokes also ended in the animal not making it across the road in time. So we asked him why they don't make it. He said, "Because they just aren't fast enough and they get sqooshed like a pea!"

We asked Landice if she had any jokes. Here is her reply:

Landice: Ask me if I have a joke.
Joshua: Okay, do you have a joke.
Landice: ****nothing***

She was in her own world of self inspection. We then had to explain to the kid's that tomatoes don't go in your underwear/panties.

Hayden insisted on stealing all the tomatoes after he heard their plans.

Stay tuned for more "steamy" & "fruity" stories from the Mullins' kid's...

Maybe Corban and David can get together and tell jokes because David's are along the same lines.
