Some cute Zach-isms:

- "I love ice cream! I love ice cream! I love it. I mean real love." Another time: "I like ice cream! I sure do."

- "Why did you say 'Oops,' Mommy?" "Why did you say 'Grr,' Mommy?" "Why did you say (sigh), Mommy?" :=D

- Zach's imagination knows no bounds. We sometimes tell made-up stories (called "Michelin Man stories," dating back to the first made-up story based on an ad for Michelin tires in Daddy's Car & Driver magazine...), and his can be QUITE elaborate!! (-and usually not having anything to do with the Michelin Man, anymore, although they still carry his name!)

- Mommy to Zach: "Thanks for putting the chairs around the table without even being told to, Zach! That was very thoughtful and helpful." Zach: "I just want to be a good Samaritan . I want to grow up to be a good Samaritan ." :=) (No-one can fight that !)
