Henry: Engines don't wear scarves! Percy: Engines with proper funnels do. You've only got a small one!
Seg, upon seeing Mimi's new scarf: "Mama! She doesn't even need to be under the blankets anymore because she'll be so warm!"
My mother-in-law, upon being told I was saying the scarf was "for Mimi," not "for me": "I am not knitting another stitch on that thing!"
Primo, upon hearing I'd finished Mimi's scarf: "Will you knit one for Pooh now?"
H, watching the boys jump on the couch: "Boys, don't jump on the couch while your mother is knitting."
Me, thought-bubbles all round:
1) "Now perhaps I could knit her a butt scarf! To keep the rest of her warm!"
2) "Old bat! Get your ears checked!"
3) "Oh, sure, for Pooh and Snowy and Jason Bear and all of the other eleventy gazillion stuffed animals roaming this house!"
4) "You'll shoot your eye out, you'll shoot your eye out!"
