Me: Why did you break my phone?

Me: I didn’t see him…

Ethan: He’s a ninja.

Me: When did he become a ninja?

Ethan: (playing Kirby) When I lose my ability, I can become stone again.

Me: Why would you want to be stone?

Ethan: Because it’s pretty much the greatest.

We’re spending the snow day listening to The Beatles.

Ethan: What song is this one?

Me: All Together Now.

Ethan: Okay.

(a few songs later)

Ethan: What’s this one called?

Me: Let it Be.

Ethan: Thanks!

He asked both these questions during the chorus of each song, which both consist of the title being repeated over and over. Not sure he gets how songs are titled just yet…

(Ethan is starting at me, just inches away from my head.)

It’s okay. I’m just looking at your hair.

Ethan-ism #7

We are in the process of reading a novelization of Disney’s Pocahontas, and we get to the point where Governor Ratcliffe puts a British flag on the shore.

Ethan: That’s supposed to be the American flag.

Me: Well, before we became America, we were part of England.

Ethan: Were you alive back when we were part of England?

Me: *glares* No.
