Baxter (from the back seat): "Mommy, does Superman have all the super-powers?"
Me: "No, honey, none of the Superheroes can have all the super-powers."
Baxter: "No, Mommy...SUPERMAN, I'm talking about."
[Oh, well then, I guess I gave the wrong answer. Again.]
Lyle: "Mommy, why did the rubber chicken cross the road?"
Me: "Hmmm, I don't know..."
Lyle: "To get to the apple pie!"
Baxter: "I want to wear my cape with the "B" on it for Halloween. Then I can be Earth Boy and use all my new super powers!"
Me: "Oooh, that sounds great! And Lyle, you said you want to be a pumpkin, right?"
Lyle: "Noooo...I want to be a baby instead."
[Insert visual of Lyle in a big onesie with a pacifier in his mouth, carrying a bottle, and saying (as he did for me tonight) "Trick or treat, pell my feet, give me somefin' good to eat!"]
