Dad: “Oh, so when you turn 10, then you will go on a date like mom and dad? Who will you go on a date with?
Son: “You and mom. And when I am 10, then [my little brother] will go on a date too.”
Dad: “So, when you are 10, [your brother] will be 8, and then both of you will go on dates?”

We've been keeping track of these funny little things on a Word Document all the while looking for a book to record them in. We thought about a generic notebook, but I wanted something special. I found a book by Amy K. Rosenthal, she's one of my favorite memory-keeper-authors, so I went with her book, Words to Remember, and I really love it. We'll have to remember to put the Who, When, Where (and Age) down but I like her style. Another great book that we checked out was, My Quotable Kid, another great way to record your child's funny thoughts, sayings, and ideas.

How do you record the funny things your children say?
