Ben and I have been saving up for this post, but I thought it was time to write it. My mom and dad have words or phrases that they say slightly incorrectly. They call those words or phrases "Ellaisms", "Isaacisms", "Lindsayisms", etc. according to which kid said them that way. (You can add a few other one's in the comments if you want!:)) My mom has always said that 4 years old was her favorite, probably because of this. Here are some things Isaac has said in the last few months that has had us cracking up!

Isaac: "Why you lookin' at me like that? Sup, sup!"

Isaac: "When you eat babies, you get smaller and smaller..."

Mom: "What does a duck say, Jude?"
Jude: "Duk"
Mom: "A duck says quack, quack!"
Isaac: "No. A duck says 'wak, wak.' Most of the time. How does a worm move?"

(Ben found $18 in a random place.)
Isaac: "Oh. You can get me bubble gum with those dollars!"

(Music playing.)
Isaac: "1, 2, 3, 4, I'm gon' count to 5 and you start shakin' your booty."

And last, but not least, today he said: "When is it gon' be Halloween?"
Mom: "In October."
Isaac: "In October? There's gon' be candy. And toilet paper."

I like 4 years old, too.
