Another Xanderism

This morning Alexander woke up and Hannah threw a toy and it hit him in the chin.  He started crying and said, "My fortune cookie was right!"  Me: "Your fortune cookie?"  Xander: "Yes, I got a fortune cookie at lunch yesterday."  Me: "What did your fortune cookie say?"  Xander: "Your little sister is going to hit you!" I said there is no way your fortune cookie said that.  He said, "No it didn't say that, but it did say I was going to live a happy life and this is NOT a happy life!"

Yesterday Alexander said, "Mom, why do girls care so much about their fingernails? Boys don't care about anything.  Well, except for how they live.  Boys don't care about anything on their body.  Well, except for their hair."

Later, Alexander was riding his bike and John complimented him on his awesome riding ability.  Xander said, "It's all about the aerodynamics, dad."

Our Serbian Fish

In honor of fellow Serbian athlete extraordinaire Novak Djokovic, I have posted a couple of videos of our own little Serbian athlete.  Keep in mind that the first time she ever went swimming was June 20th and she has never had a lesson.  Enjoy!

When we were in New York, John's mother gave Xander Pappap's walkman.  It was the greatest gift ever.  On Monday we went to my mom's and she gave him some of her old cassette tapes, including Elvis. Xander has not stopped listening to it - during breakfast, after school, playing with friends....So yesterday at breakfast, Xander is listening to Elvis and he says, "Mom, I'm pretty sure this was recorded when Elvis was alive."  You're pretty sure, huh?

Also yesterday, Xander's legs were hurting him and he said, "I think somebody has a Doo Doo Doll that looks like me because different parts of my body hurt all the time."  Do you mean "Voo Doo Doll"?  Yep.
