Are You a Genius?

The boys just had this hilarious conversation while they sitting in the tub:

Eóin: You're a genius!
Aidan: No I'm not!
Me: Eóin do you know what a genius is?
Eóin: um - no
Me: A genius is someone who is very smart.
Eóin: Ooooh - Mommy, you are a genius!
Me: Aw - thanks :)
Aidan: Eóin, you are a genius
Eóin: Aidan, only girls can be geniuses!

I had a good laugh at that one!

What did you say?

Just some funny quotes and conversations from the boys the last few weeks. Most I have posted on facebook, but I wanted to write them down somewhere I could find them later.

This one was IN FRONT of the church when the boys went up to the front to listen to the children's story.
Pastor Troy: Have you guys ever been on a boat?
Aidan: No, not a boat, but we go in our van all the time.
Eóin: Aidan, they know we have a van.
Aidan: No they don't!!!

This one was on a walk through the park the other day when we walked under an oak tree. Eóin noticed all the acorns on the ground and asked "hmmm do you think a squirrel dropped his lunch?"

Aidan: "Mommy - the floor hit me" (he fell)

One day, I looked at Aidan and his mouth was blue...
Me: Aidan, is that paint on your mouth?
Aidan: Yeah it's so tasty!

Tonight the boys were playing pretending to be animals...
Eóin: I'm a Tapier, I eat grass
Aidan: I'm a frog, I eat chocolate :-)

Book Review: Deadly Pusuit by Irene Hannon

Alison Taylor is a social worker who tirelessly works to give families a better life. Even pushing past her own pain and exhaustion from a car accident, she fights for the children she cares so much about. That doesn't give her much time for a social life, but it seems there might even be hope for that on the horizon in her brother's partner on the police force. Mitch Morgan is handsome, charming and caring and as an ex- Navy seal, he is definitely someone you want on your side in a dangerous situation. And that is just what Alison finds herself in.
Alison starts to get some unwanted attention from a secret admirer - or maybe not so much of an admirer. When things start to get creepy, the people who care about Alison need to fight as hard as Alison to keep her safe!

This is the second book in the Guardians of Justice series and I enjoyed this book as much as the first.  It's funny to think that someone who looks as innocent as Hannon does in the picture on the book can write such twisted characters :-) It was definitely a page turner, especially as the action heightened and there was lots of action. Just don't start it too late at night :-)

Thanks to Revell Publishers for a free copy of this book to review.
