Funny Zay Quotes

Zaya told me yesterday:

"I had a thought. Happiness is better than the thing that made you happy."

When Art asked him what he meant by that he said, "The happiness is better to God than the actual thing that makes you happy. Like me and video games."

I told him that was his first proverb, which made him very excited.

In a less philosophical realm:

Today the kids had their first gymnastics class, which they loved. Mommies were not allowed to stay, but Mim handled it amazingly well, despite her initial tears.

As we walked in, Zaya said, "I think I like karate better than gymnastics." (Except he pronounces it 'carry-ah-tee')

I told him, "Zaya, you've never been to a karate class. You don't actually know anything about karate."

He said, "Yes I do. I know - Hai-Ya!"

And that sort of proved my point.

He was thrilled with his gymnastics class by the end, even though he's the only boy there.

Better tell him to save that original proverb for seventh grade Bible...they have to write three original proverbs, remember, and it's hard to come up with them when commanded to do so. He'll just be able to scroll back through your old blog entries. lol.
