Today is Coder's 8th birthday and what better way to celebrate than to share the latest batch of Cody Quotes? Enjoy!
After being given a biscuit at breakfast, Cody shouted:
I'm not moist!
(yeah, I don't know either)
When asked if he wanted to do go karts with the rest of the group he declared:
I'm not doing them. I've got neck pain.
We had a garage sale a few weeks ago, and didn't have much luck with traffic. When the first car finally pulled up in front of the house, Cody went to the end of the driveway and said:
Welcome to our sale. Do you need anything?
One morning, he was running around without a shirt and I noticed something blue on his back. Our conversation went like this:
Me: Cody what's on your back?
C: (matter of factly) toothpaste.
Me: How did you get toothpaste on your back?
brushed my teeth and it got on my hand so i went like this (swings right arm behind back up to his left shoulder blade)
Here's another one I'm not quite sure how to contextualize:
TV terrorists put on a scary logo and voodoo music.
(Cody has since informed me that this is the THX logo at the beginning of movies. He really, really, REALLY does not like THX. He will run out of the room)
When he was having a rough time at school:
Education ruined my life. It's my punishment.
We did the Autism Awareness walk back in April. His school put together a team and we were to meet at the East end of the mall. Cody insisted we had to meet in front of the department store on the completely opposite side of the mall saying:
I have a little shopping to do.
I had to shake things up a bit
We passed a laundromat with a sign reading "Coin Laundry". Cody asked:
Is that where you wash and dry your coins?
Cody's first attempt at a poem:
the sun is up
the birds are singing
and the moon has traveled to the other side
One more gem from my daughter, then the grand finale from Coders.
We pulled up to her piano teacher's house.
Me: Oh! What beautiful flowers!
Her: Old people garden a lot.
Me: Hey! I'm going to be old...
Her: And you'll have a lovely garden
And finally, I don't know for sure what he's talking about, but it's hysterical:
That's it! I'm buying a new one! One that doesn't rub, never wears out, and has a good pencil hanging system!
(Cody loves reading his quotes on the blog and he has told me this is referring to a Magna Doodle. Makes sense now.)
Happy Birthday, Coders!
