This boy makes us much.
A few of my favorite recent Lincoln-isms:

-Last week we were at the library. Lincoln was talking to a little boy and brought him over to see Maxwell. "This is Maxwell," he told him with a completely straight face. "I named him that. When I was at Texas, I used to call him 'Shum-Pum.' But then one day, I had the idea to call him Maxwell. So we did!"

-His teachers at Church helped him fill out a Mother's Day survey. It said, "My mom is funny when..." His written response? "Mommy isn't funny! Maxwell is!"

-The boys were playing with a set of dominoes we gave Sam's brother, and Lincoln wanted to open the package that had 4 little trains in it. I told him that we weren't going to open them because I didn't want them to get lost in the building we were in. A few minutes later he came over to me, holding the lid of the dominoes tin, and, running his finger carefully along a line of words, said, "It says, 'The trains won't get lost.' So we can play with them!" Unfortunately for him, I actually know how to read, so his ploy didn't work.

-Today at the park a little boy asked what his name was and without skipping a beat he said, "I'm Enos! He's a scripture hero!"

-Speaking of scripture heroes, on Sunday Lincoln was insistent that Nephi wore a cape. His brothers were discussing whether or not it was true and I tried to settle the matter by saying, "Maybe it was a cloak." Lincoln replied, "NO, he wears a cape! Because my teacher said Nephi is one of her heroes, so I know he has a cape!" Obviously. Sheesh, Mom.


  1. I love all the little antics! It amazes me the things that go through their brain. We've liked listening to Bensen talk on his pretend phone lately. He has all sorts of fun conversations that crack us up and give us insight into what we say a lot.

    1. Ahh, fake phone conversations always crack me up! I love it!!
