Playing Super Mario with Jake

Rhett: Maybe we could name him Scooter!
Julia: So any other names tickle your fancy?
Rhett: Hmmm...
Rhett: How about the name, "Captain America?" That's a responsible name huh?

While getting myself dressed for church

Julia: OK Rhett should I wear these shoes or these shoes?
Rhett: (as he plucks my leopard print heels out of the closet) Well, I just really think Jesus would like these nice ones better.

Eating a bedtime snack

Walking up a highly populated playground

Rhett: Mom I have a secret to tell you.

Julia: I think they might.
Rhett: (deep sigh) I knew it.

An impromptu bathtub lesson in appropriate word choice

Rhett: Rad, we don't say "holy crabs" (crap) because it's really rude to all the crabs.

Rad: No.
Rhett: I know what I'm talking about Rad.
