I’ve collected my 2009 Facebook “status messages” about my two youngest children, in order to inflict them all on you at once. My son is now 8 and my daughter nearly six.

Here they are, starting in January.

Daughter: “What color do white and white make? Light white?”

Daughter kept asking whether we were going to lick the liqueur at the Purim seudah.

Daughter: “Don’t touch my socks. I’ve worn them for a few days.”

Son wondered whether you have to make a bracha (blessing) on lightning when you see Harry Potter’s scar.

Me to son: It looks like you got up on the wrong side of bed. Daughter: He did. I saw him.

Son said the list of animals in the parsha (Leviticus 8) is like the class, Care of Magical Creatures, in Harry Potter

Son: Are you going to have another baby? Me: I don’t think so, I’m pretty old. Son: That’s what Sarah said too.


  1. love the last one especially!

  2. They are so cute and smart! May they grow up to fulfill all their potential!

    Thanks for posting!

  3. Fun! Thanks for sharing.

  4. Cute :).

  5. I am DYING at the last one–so cute!

  6. Last one was really good!

  7. Looks like I’m not the only one charmed by the last one – education is a dangerous thing, ah?

  8. The last one was indeed hilarious, and a very good reason for why no woman should give away her maternity clothes until she is at least past social security age–giving them away is definitely a segulah for having another baby, regardless of age.

  9. Very funny.

  10. thanks for sharing. The perspective of a child can be a breath of fresh air.

  11. Brilliant children, of course!
    As long as they don’t ask you to teach them kaddish “to be prepared”. My brother asked my father to teach him, for that reason, when he was a little boy. LOL
