Banksisms, Part 10

I love using this blog as a keepsake, in part as a way to make sure I remember all the wonderfully funny things that come out of my babes' mouths. So. Here it is. The latest round of Banksisms:

Daddy: "Banks, you're one of a kind." 
Banks: "Don't call me that, please."
Because clearly it's an insult??

Daddy: "You have to behave on the golf course today, okay buddy?"
Banks: "Okay, daddy, but if a bee's following me, I'll need to yell out for you."
Golf Course: Beware of Bees.

Banks: "Mommy, how do you call a firefighter?"
Momma: "You call 9-1-1."
Banks, shouting: "9-1-1!!!"
Ha! So literal.

Banks: "How old are you?
Momma: "32."
Banks: "When will I be 32?"
Momma: "In 28 years."
Banks: "How many days is that?"
Momma: "I don't even know, buddy. A lot."
Banks: "A whole tank full of days?"
Momma: "Yes. A whole tank full of days."
Love his measurement system.

(While watching a model walk down the runway on Project Runway):
Banks: "Is that her Halloween costume?" 
One person's fashion do is another's fashion don't.

Banks: "Mommy, can I watch Sponge Bob?"
Momma: "No. I don't like Sponge Bob."
Banks: "Can I watch it when I'm 20? And can I stay up as late as I want and watch any shows I want with you and Daddy?"
Momma: "Absolutely."
I would be SO happy if he still wants to hang out with ol' Mom and Dad when he's 20.

(After seeing an overly tanned woman on tv):
Banks: "Her face looks like a carrot."
I can't disagree. 

Man, I love my funny little fella. 


  1. Great post, Lindsay :-) My name is Heather and I was wondering if you would be able to answer my question I have about your blog! Please email me at Lifesabanquet1(at)gmail(dot)com :-)

  2. UGH. no sponge bob. ever.
    This is such a fun age.
    And honest... very.

    1. Research has actually shown that watching Sponge Bob, as opposed to other, more age-appropriate cartoons, is known to have a negative impact on executive functioning (i.e., impulse control, planning and problem-solving, etc.). Not to mention, I think it's just stupid. :) So, it will never be allowed in our house-mean ol' momma. :) And yes, I am LOVING age 4!! Much better than the tough year that was 3...
