The AWESOME-NESS of a 5-year-old boy names Rob:
ROB: "Mama, can you fix the TV?"
ME: "What wrong with it?"
ROB: "It's all fire dogs."
ROB: "Mom. It. Is. All. Fire. Dogs." (he says in his uber condescending 5 year old voice)
I walk in & see this:
ROB: "I wish we were rich, mom."
ME: "Why is that, buddy?"
ROB: "So all the robbers would look at us & go, 'WHAT?!?'."
ROB: "Yeah, & then they would write 'S's on their eyes."
ME: ***stares blankly***
ROB: ***stares back at me***
ME: "Oh, like $ on their eyes."
ROB: "Hey, mom do you see this?"

ME: "Rob, please go brush your teeth."
ROB: "But I don't wanna."
ME: "What? Why?"
ROB: "Because I want them to get yellow so I can look like a pirate."
Here's from his "All About Me" notebook:
