The rest of my Hawaii trip will have to wait. And it will all be summed up in one more magnificent post. Later.
But for now, it's the moment you've all been waiting for (or not):
K: Mom, why don't you like mustard?
M: Because I don't like how it tastes.
K: I don't like mustard, either. That means we're best friends.
She runs up to me, just sobbing
M: What's wrong, honey??
K: *sob* Kaden said he was going to [*sniff**sniff*] tattle-tale on me!!! *sob*
M: ... hmmm... well, do you know that you are actually tattle-telling on him?
K: B-b-b-but he was going to tell on me!!!
Dad: I feel like a big fat loser because I can't lose any weight.
K: Dad, you're a winner. Not a loser.
M: Eew. I'm all sweaty from running.
K: I think I still love you even if you're all gross and sweaty.
K: When you and dad love each other, do you have big hearts in your eyes?
M: Wow, Kennedy. You are so smart. You must get it from your mom, right?
K: No, I don't.
M: Oh. [trying not to feel insulted] Well where do you get it from?
K: Nowhere. I just think. So that makes me smart.
K: When I grow up, I want to be a camper.
M: What does a camper do?
K: She camps, you silly!!
K: I'm so big! I'm 5, now!
D: Did you know that every year you get older, I get older??
D: I don't want to get older.
K: [caressing his face] It's ok, dad. When I'm as old as you, you'll be a grandpa. And when you die you'll go to heaven. And then when I die, I'll go to heaven, too. So we'll see each other again. It will be ok.
