Jake's Jabberings/ Mal's Musings

Jake: (as I was getting him dressed in a plaid button-down shirt for school) "This is my superhero shirt."
Mommy: "Oh, really? Does it make you run really, really fast?"
Jake: "Yes."
Mommy: "Does it make you jump really, really high?"
Jake: "Yes. My superhero shirt is HUNGRY!!"
Mommy: "It is? What does it eat?"
Jake: "Um, donuts and toast and cheeseburger buns."
Apparently, superhero shirts need lots of carbs to sustain them.
Mommy: "We're having poppyseed chicken for dinner tonight."
Jake: (pausing to think) "No, poppyseed RICE!"
Mommy: "Hmm, I'm not sure how to make that."I overheard this conversation of theirs while they were playing with their kitchen upstairs & I was down in the real kitchen.
Mal: "I want a cracker. I want a cracker. I want a cracker." (repeated more times than I care to type)
Jake: "Just a minute!"
Mal: "I want a CRACKER!"
Jake: "Just a minute, Mal Mal!"
Apparently, I'm not the only one with whom she loses her patience!

OK, how did Jake ever get old enough to say "superhero" or to pretend that he has a superhero shirt?
