Fly on the Wall

When told that today he was going to get shots at the doctor's office Moses starts jumping up and down:
"See how high I can jump? I'm a big boy and so now I can hit the doctor."

As we walk out the door to visit some neighbors.
Moses: I don't want the people to borrow this hat.
Me (glancing at his hat with a mesh back and bold letters that read, "Poop Happens"): Yeah. I don't think you'll have any trouble with that.

Me: Moses! What are you doing?!
Moses: I don't want to tell you. (still too young for outright lying but a little evasion is right up his ally)

Moses is up in a "Quiet Time" but for some reason seems to think that it is fine to be shouting at the top of his lungs. When told to quiet down for the quiet time he quickly responds with what he thinks is a sure-fire explanation:
"But I'm singing songs to Jesus."
Sorry buster, not this time.

We enjoyed our first Corn Maze with friends of ours who also have a good showing in the "rather-fertile-young-Catholics" standings. As we adults waddled/moseyed down the paths with the little girls Moses would run way ahead. When he came to a dead-end he'd run back to us and and warn us off of the "blockup". And then he'd confidently announce that he'd found the "family way." Needless to say, both couples were rather nervous to be walking down the "family-way" again so quickly.
