Brendan (age 6): You're the second best mom...ya know...after Mary.
Brendan's card that he made for Eamon's birthday:
Xander: Some kids in my class have only small roles in the Wizard of Oz.
Me: There's no such thing as a small role, only small actors!
Brendan: Yeah, like the Munchkins!
Xander (age 11): Mom, I think I should be able to get a phone early.
Me: No way, you're not responsible enough yet.
Xander: But you always tell me how responsible I am!
Me: When do I tell you that?
Xander: Whenever something bad happens, you say "Xander is responsible!"
Dad: That's good.
JP: Yeah, it's tough being the only guy and having to carry all the bags and open all the doors.
