While I would love to do a photo montage of 2010, let’s face it:  I am just not that organized.  So, I thought the best way to sum up our year would be a recap of some of the things I have overheard, and some conversations of which I have been a part.  Here is our year in review with a list of Things Heard Around the Mainiero Home:

“Are you through with your mashed potatoes?”

“Mabel licked ‘em.”

“So, that’s a ‘yes?’”

—-

“Mommy, what do we have to buy at Ham Hock Fabrics?”

“It’s ‘Hancock Fabrics,’ sweetie.”

“Whatever.”

—-

“I need a new [iPod] screen protector.  This one has Cheeto on it.”

—-

“Mabel has something!!!!!”

{This quote is always followed by a stampede of people chasing Mabel to retrieve whatever she has absconded with.}

(Aaron)

“I had to sleep on the cold, hard floor last night.”

“You did not.”

“I did, too!  I was laying on the floor.  In the kitchen.  With the freezer door open.”

—-

(Vic)

“Can you help me get Marsha (the bunny rabbit) back in her cage…again?”

—-

“Mommy, you are an organic freak!!”

—-

“If you grow a garden of all that stuff, are we gonna have to eat it?”

—-

Vic: “There’s a man standing over there with a cane.”

Aaron: “I see him.”

Vic: “That cane shoots lasers out the bottom.”

Aaron: “His cane does NOT shoot lasers out the bottom of it.”

Vic: “You don’t know that.”

—-

“Why do people have to pop firecrackers?  Don’t they know I don’t like them?”

—-

Aaron: “Why does Mason have to go to the doctor again?”

Me: “You want the long story or the short story?”

Aaron: “The short story.”

Me: “He has tumors in his butt.”

Aaron: “I am soooooo sorry I asked!”
