We got new sidewalk chalk, since the box I bought when I was at CMU is finally used up. (:  Jonathan likes to paint his tricycle tires, and he calls it "Never Proof Tire Chalk."

Quotes: "I misunderheard the rules."


J: "Were you one of Auntie E's bridesmaids?"

Me: "Nope."

J: "But you got your hair crinkled!"


"Daddy isn't a sinful man."  (This was after looking at his Bible Rhyme book that says Jesus died for sinful men. It had nothing to do with anything I said...)


Ok, here's Name That Movie.  Jonathan's description follows but I'll leave the answer for the comments after people have guessed.


"Those black ladies who sing, with those things on their heads.  It had those puppets.  And the girls say, "lay, lay, lay..."

Before I try too hard, is it a movie you think I've seen? Jonathan has seen many that I have not.

Sound of Music. :-)

Only because Erica used to call the lifeguard who wore a black bathing suit, "that black girl".

Of course! And I have seen that one. I was picturing the Supremes....

Boy, Mom Daley is good! I was going to give some hints:
Hint #1: Jonathan labels people by the color of their clothes, not their skin.
When he describes skin color he says "faces." So African-Americans are "black
face guys" and Robin Hood is a "green guy."

Hint #2: It's a musical.

Also, the "lay" part was easier for me to understand because it did sound rather like yodeling.

So when I figured out what he meant, I told him those "black ladies" were called nuns, and he thought that was hilarious, because it sounded like "none" to him. "Those nuns were nothing!"
