Manning Kids

A sample of recent sayings and conversations from the Manning kids:
Andrew and Elizabeth (5), pretending to be superheroes:
Andrew: My guy is kinda like Iron Man, but he shoots lava out of his hands, like this: WHOOSH! BAM!
Elizabeth: My superhero is like Iron Man too, but her helmet covers up her hair so bad guys can't tell she's a girl. And she wears a skirt that comes down to here, and boots that come up to here.

Peter (6), warning his siblings against entering his fort: Avandish hope, all he who enter here!

Caleb (7), watching cool reflected lights: Wow! It's so exciting! It's like one of those dinko parties!
Me: Like what?
Caleb: You know, with the ball with mirrors on it.
Me: You mean a disco ball?


  1. Gary Manning/Mr. Manning:

    Those are some great quotes!! They had me smiling from ear to ear. I love the minds of little children. So creative and innocent.

    By the way, this is your former conceptual physics student, Scott Edgar (1992). It has been a while, but I think about you at times and wonder how you are. Things appear to be well and happy.

    Great blog, by the way.

  2. Hey Scott! Great to hear from you! I see you are in law. Good for you! Life is going well for us. I'll shoot you an email.

  3. Aloha Gary & Ohana

    OMG - I just love it! Especially the one about the "Dinko Party". Kids are so much fun! I believe I went to some "Dinko Parties" in my day - ooops I guess that dates me.

    Aloha & Blessings My Friend!
