Levitical Sayings

Mom, come this way! (We were exploring paths on a hike) I promise I'm not Flatterer. (Which will probably only make sense if you've read Pilgrim's Progress.)

May I please watch a quiet movie? (He looks at me with pleading eyes during a long pause.) I lack a yes....

Mom, do you know what cumbersome means? (I ask him to tell me.) Heavy. Hard to handle.

The rain is striking in different directions!

The frog is pleading for some food.

(In the middle of the night I hear his voice calling. I go in. He says in his sweetest voice...) Mom, could you help me with my covers, please? I only say those words when I need assistance. (I cover him up. He doesn't move or open his eyes.) Thanks, mom.

I'm going to pounce. That means to spring on someone suddenly.

(He gets out of the bathtub... His swimming trunks are dripping wet, but he doesn't seem very clean.) Only the south half of me is wet. The north half is still dry. (He puts his hands around his waist.) This is the equator.

(I ask him if he likes Tae Kwon Do.) Yeah! (Slight pause.) Except for the pushups. They give me the arm aches.

I despise you, Diego! (Said one Zorro to Diego from Go, Diego!)

Oh my gosh! I am laughing so hard. Levi sounds like such a wonderful, delightful little man.

I always get excited when I see a "Levitical Sayings" post and this one did not disappoint! :)

I can't believe your boy is only 5! He so sophisticated and seems to be quite the gentleman. I love seeing strong character and personality in one so young. He is one to watch!
