(I was asked to pick T up early from school as teachers thought he felt feverish, and these were some of his yakkings when I bought him out for lunch …)
T: I am not sick.
T: I am a little sick (and asked to be carried).
T: I think I love you a little.
T: The card (he was holding my ez link card at the bus stop) is waiting for the bus, mama.

(Boys were rattling off about some superheros)
T: Superman (blah blah blah) idleman!
(I had to explain that idleman is not a superhero because that’s actually nothing man. Boys were so amused that now they constantly refer to idleman at home!)
