He just can't help himself...

Some recent Calvinisms from our Middlest son:

Mr. Brown Eyes.

(Reading the Book "Abuelo and the Three Bears" with Auntie Renee, in which Papa bear is feeling grumpy about his frijoles being too hot.)

Aunt Renee:  Papa bear is feeling Grumpy.  Do you think your Papa ever feels grumpy?
Calvin:  Yep.  Sometimes.
Aunt Renee:  What about you?  Do you ever feel grumpy?
Calvin:  Yep.  Every day!

His little art studio in the garage.  He specializes in "vehicles".

Calvin:  Are you a girl?
Mommy: Yes.
Calvin:  Are you a wife girl?
Mommy:  Yes, I am.
Calvin:  All mixed up?
Mommy:  Probably so.

Mom, quick!  Bring the camera!  I made a really long train!

Calvin, examining the picture on the Caesar Salad Dressing label, declared the girl on the label (Caesar) had spinach in her hair (a laurel crown).  Using his 3 year old skills of deduction, he then told us he had figured out what the writting on the label said:

"It says, 'We don't put spinach in our hair, we put it in our mouth.  This is the truth!'"

He wants to be a train engineer when he grows up.

Calvin is at his first ever Vacation Bible School today.  I dropped him off this morning at Calvary Chapel, and he is so excited.  Anxiety about doing a new thing?  Nope.  Not if there are friends to be made, crafts to be done, huge tunnels meant to imitate the belly of a whale to be explored.  He's the full package, that Calvin.  Outgoing, sensitive, witty, decisive, industrious.  We call him our "Middlest", because plain old Middle just does not do him justice.
