What are you eating?

I was on the computer last night when Ethan came walking in. He's chewing/sucking on something, and it's hard and clacking against his teeth.
That sounds like he's sucking on a water bottle lid...

Me: What are you eating?
Ethan: CAN- (suck/clack/suck)-DY
Me: Oh. Good.
Ethan: NOT a dead rat!
Me: Mmmm-hmm. (Not paying attention now that it's not a danger issue...)
Me: WAIT! What did you just say? Did you just say you weren't eating a dead rat?
Ethan: Yeah, because that would be disgusting, right? Yuck.

Where does this come from? I have no idea. Truly.

Today, as it's pouring rain, Ethan says: I knowed that it was going to rain today.
Me: You did?
Ethan: Yep. I knowed it yesterday, even before it started to rain!
Me: Really? (We had like a less than 20% chance for tomorrow, none for today, and it was 105 and sunny all day.) How did you know?
Ethan: My brain just knowed it. Sometimes brains do that.


Nicholas is now working hard to keep me laughing too. Besides counting all day long, and pointing out numbers and letters everywhere we go, he's into colors. So I pointed to his yellow striped shirt yesterday and asked, "What color is this?"
Nick: Dis is BOO!
Me:, this is YELLOW!
Nick: Dis is BOO!

We did this all day. I'd ask,"What color is this?"
Nick: Dis is BOO!
Me:, this is YELLOW!
Nick: Dis is BOO!

Over and over, always the same answer. (And very proud of it he was!)

Today, pointing to a BLUE shirt, I ask,
What color is this?
Nick: Big grin.....Dis is yeyow!!

I LOVE THESE BOYS! Life is never boring!

"NOT a dead rat" is going to be my answer now every time someone asks me what I'm eating or what I'm going to eat. I like it. It's simple and it's so true.
