Delish of the Day
One afternoon, while suspending colorful, home-made planets from the ceiling, my son turned to me and said: “Mom, make sure you put the sun in the middle because the planets move around the sun…and also Mom, where is Fresno?” The word Fresno coming out of my four year old’s mouth made me laugh. He has never even been to California. I shared it on my facebook page and recieved so many comments from my friends and family, that from time to time I posted my Delish quote of the day. Every day he makes me smile. Here are a few Delish quotes that have made me happy. For more Delish read Hiding in a Purple Basket
The Value of Money
Delish of the Day: Playing with his pal from school. They run around the house with swords fighting crime.
Friend: "Hey lets pretend your dogs are Zombie bad guys who rob banks!"
Delish: "No, they are crime fighting dogs. Besides, they value knowledge not money."
The Big Kid Now
Now that he is a big first grader, Delish was invited to read a book for the Pre-K children .
Mama: " Hey, how did the reading go today?"
Delish: "Oh Mom, the Pre-K kids are a bunch of little monsters."
He mastered tying his shoe laces this weekend.
Dad: "Good job Bud. Does it feel good to accomplish that?"
Dad: " Are there other kids in your grade that can tie their shoes that well?"
Delish: "Well, Mikey is spreading rumors that he can."
(names have been changed to protect the innocent)
What's Out There
Delish: "Hey Mom, I know what is on the far side of the universe."
Delish: "The future."
Mama: "Oh, I like that thought."
Delish: "And on the other side is the past. It's like one giant time machine up there."
Whatever My Name Is
We laying in bed talking about the day and life. I ask him if he can remember anything from when he was inside my belly:
"I remember two things. First, I knew when it was night time because it would get even darker than usual in there, then your heart would light up like a big night light.
Second, I remember when I had to come out. I knew I had to try hard so i I said 'come on whatever my name is', because I didn't know my name yet..'come on whatever my name is, Be A Man!"
The Big Picture
"Honestly Mom, what is one little desert in the the scheme of things?
A Horror Movie
Our lovely dog rolled in something disgusting.
"Oh God, It's like a horror movie for your nose!"
At school pick up.
Mama: "Hey Bud, how was your day?"
Delish: "Pretty good. Want to know what I learned?"
Mama: "Sure I do."
Delish: "I learned; If you want something done right, you have to do it yourself."
"There are some things that only God knows. Well, God and Santa
We are playing a video game together:
Mom: "Hey, have you been in this portal yet? It's really cool."
Delish: "Yeah I have been here. I have been lots of places and know lots of things that you don't. I will show you when you are ready but you need more time Mom."
Suddenly, I am unsure if we are talking about the video game anymore
Something to Remember
We were watching a television show together and one of the characters said;
"You cannot change the past."
Delish: "It's true Mom, You can't change the past, but you can influence the future."
I am sure he heard it somewhere before, but I still love that he remembered and repeated it.
"Mom, when do I get to drive a car?"
"When you are 16. It's not so far away."
"I could do it now but imagine if I did it when I was three? It would have had disasterous consequences."
"Hey Dad, how old are you?"
"I'm 53 bud."
"So, does that mean you were born before time had a name?"
Morning walk in the woods, holding hands, chatting away.
Delish: "Mom, is it true that teenagers are difficult ?"
Mama: "Well, yes it can be true. Sometimes, people go through a phase of thinking they know best. They don't listen to advice because they think they know everything already."
Delish: "Oh, well. I already do that. I've been doing that for a while now. So, just so you know, I will definitely be doing that when I am a teenager.
Mama: Laughs hysterically
Delish: "I don't know why you are laughing. I am totally serious."
Hiking in the woods on a Sunday morning.
"Hey Dad, want to plan ninjago?"
"No thanks pal, I want to enjoy my walk and the sunshine and just relax."
"Ya, good luck with that, and when you get bored let me know and we will play ninjago."
Thoughts on ET
"I think they have really lowered the bar for aliens."
Talking about a big kid in the eighth grade.
Mom : You will in eighth grade before you know it. It's only eight years away and look you are already six.
Delish: You have to be kidding me. It took me 52 years to get from five to six!
Playing at the beach together.
"Mom, remember how I used to always chase the seagulls at the beach?"
"Well, I think that I am not going to do that anymore."
"Because it just realized that they have feeling too and they might not like it much."
What a Day
"Is it me or is this day amazing?"
What's His Name
"Mama, Do you remember name of that little doggie we met today?"
"Um, I think it was bruno or butchy or something like that"
"Ya, OK. I will take that as a no"
Trying to get him dressed in warm hiking clothes.
Mama: "Please put it on and stop arguing."
Delish: "Well, if you stopped arguing with me, I wouldn't be able to argue."

I Choose You
We were talking about his name and why we chose it. It was his father's favorite name and he always wanted to name his son Sebastian.
"So Daddy already knew my name even before I chose him?"
Mama "I love summer."
Delish: "Me too. But, I kinda like winter too. Don't forget Mom, winter needs love too"
Asking his Dad questions about his watch:
Dad: "Would you like to have my watch one day when you grow up?"
Delish: "No thanks dad, I don't even believe in time."
"Mama, sometimes you just don't do grown up stuff"
I cannot argue with this.

The Shellacked House.
"Mama, you are very talented at house making."
We made this house together one afternoon. I loved it so much I shellacked it. Every spring we repaint and shellack again.. Its going on three summers now! But, you have to be careful in the rain.. that baby is slippery!
"Mama, look at you, you grew up to be a teacher and a Mom. It makes me so proud of you"
The Funniest Girl
Just started Pre-school, which was not easy for me. This little chat didn't help at all. And it begins.....
"Mama, you are still funny but not the funniest. Grace (pretty girl at school) is now the funniest."
Mama: "Hey, why are you so smart? Do you think its because your Mama and Dad are so smart?"
Delish: "Definitely not"
Wolds Greatest Superhero
"Mama, if I were the superhero of all the kids, and you were the superhero of all moms, and Meisha (our dog) was the superhero of all dogs, then no one could ever hurt or kill an animal ever again."
