Wisdom from the mouth of babes..well, Lex.

I haven't posted any of these in a while, but I think it's long overdue. I would like to share some of Lex's greatest hits and misses for the fam. To my new friends, this is where I share some of Lex's interesting comments. Some of this is too good to keep to myself. My responses are italicized in the midst of an exchange, so you can see why I think she's been here before.

*After a loud crash at Walmart. Ooh, what the hell was that?!?

*Mommy, your toilet is dead. Call the partment people so they won't fix it.

*I can't go to sleep right now, mommy.
Why not?
Because it's going to be morning in a minute anyway.
Well, if you go to sleep, it's going to come here faster!
No it won't. You just saying that to make me go to sleep. You tryna to set me up.

*Call Granny so she can put me out.

*THE DEVIL IS A LIE! (Yes, my child says that now).

*Ma, I want to listen to Bohannon.
I left the Bohannon CD at home, baby.
LORD why did you do that, mommy?

*Tell Christian that RJ stole my sheets.
What sheets?
The one on my bed. I can't find it.
You're laying on it.
Well. Don't call Christian then. Wait til he do something wrong.

Just pray and tell Jesus to make it go away
Jesus KILL IT! Amen

*I told my sister to quit signifying.

*You were in the newspaper. My daddy said he was going to keep it forever.

He gon' miss the service. Oh well, we take his seat.

Well, that's all for this month. Yeap, all of this was January. I'll leave you with a Christmas gem though:

*Ma! Look what I got! I got a box! Thank you Jesus!
You gon' open the box?
