Out of the mouths of babes

SillyBilly’s vocabulary list

1) Cilantula (trying to say cilantro): A hairy green spider, good in salsa.

2) A hassle of kids: What you get when all the neighbors get together to play.

3) Microscopity teeny tiny eeny weeny bite: describing his last bite of dinner (SillyBilly subscribes to the Zeno’s dichotomy paradox method of eating his last bite).


SillyBilly: Mama, I’m the strongest person in the world.
Mama: Why’s that?
SillyBilly: I can do things no one else can do.
Mama: Like what?
SillyBilly: I can crack stones. I can crack blocks. I can crack the world.

Napoleona’s story, told to us after dinner tonight:

Once upon a time, there was a lion, an elephant and a tiger. They were walking through a deep, dark forest, and they found a cave. There was a light in the cave, and a monster came out. The monster bounced up and down. So the animals said “RRRAAAHHH” and the monster went back in the cave. Then the animals went to their own Africa and climbed up a tree, and they lived happily ever after.

    Good stories, although I think that I might want to oversee the making of the salsa, just to see what goes into it.
