Some cute Zach-isms:

- Zach gives Mommy a Mary-and-baby-Lord sticker; "I was going to give you this (other Christmassy) one, but this (Mary & baby Lord) one reminds you of your baby who died." (..Wow?!) (Mommy miscarried @ 9wks during the summer.)

- Daddy & Zach playing in Mommy & Daddy's bedroom with Big Lambie; Zach takes Mommy's thermometer - "This is for Big Lambie, so he doesn't have a stroke." (?!)

- (Of his play school teacher, Mrs. Friesen) - "I think she's cold, because she's Mrs. FREEZE-en." :=D Good one, Zach!

- Zach lets us play cars (etc) with him from the other room - "Are you in?" "Yes!" "Ok - vroom..." :=D

- "Hey, Mommy, this (Brita water filter) gives intricity to this (electric kettle), and this (kettle) gives intricity to this (plastic container)!" :=D Sure thing, kiddo!

- (Zach pushing his big dump truck on the hardwood floor) - "If you're going too fast and you slip & fall, I call that 'You broke my toy, bump!' If you hear me do that, you can say that, ok, Mommy?" (Mommy obliges.) "You did it!"

- Zach loves to mangle words - e.g. 'lentils & couscous' became 'tentils & popcorn'! :=D

- Big Lambie (as narrated by Zach) to Zach: "Eat your vitamins." Z: "Ok." (eats some, leaves the table) BL: "Hey! Eat ALL your vitamins!" Z: "I'll eat them when I'm ready." BL: "Oh, ok." Z runs off to play. :=)

- "La la loo, la la lee, la la la la, doo doo dee, la la lee la la, la lo,... I know I can do the whole puzzle, I know, I know, I can, I can, I can do the whole puzzle... La la loo loo loo..." :=D

- Mommy to Zach, who's cutting stickers: "You like to cut things, don't you?" "Yep. ...That's what kids do!"

- Being 4 years old, he likes to have 4 of things. When Mommy was pouring his cereal and he realized that it was the 4th cereal and he still wanted a 5th (he - like his mother and maternal grand-parents before him - like to have 'cereal salads', i.e. a bit of many different cereals!), he said: "This is a silent cereal" (like a silent 'e' at the end of a word). :=D Clever!!

- "Daddy's made out of plastic, I'm made out of metal, the Grinch (stuffed toy) is made out of paint that's dried up, and Mommy's made out of fur." Ok, Zach, if you say so! :=)
