Cuteness, Related to a Relation

I do love all the assorted nieces, nephews, both blood and fostered, who each bring their own brand of awesomeness to the table. But on my most recent visit to Puddletown, the quotable quotes came from the newly eight year-old Mr. B:

Example 1, while he was reading:

Me: So, do understand what's going on in the story so far?

Mr. B.: I think so...

Me: A "looking glass" is an old-fashioned word for a mirror. And Alice fell through the mirror, and found out there was another world on the other side.

Mr. B.: Yeah, that happens sometimes.

Example 2, after handing him his stuffed animals, which he proceeded to arrange around his freshly-made bed as he saw fit:

Mr. B.: Do you like how it looks?

Me: Yeah, it looks good.

Mr. B.: I watch a lot of design shows.

The Unsinkable Mr. B.

Heh. The little one looks like he's up and running already!

Are you sure the 8-Y.O. wasn't being snarky when he said, "yeah, that happens sometimes?" The second quotation is pretty darn adorable.

Well, when I replied, "It does?", he said (somewhat exasperated), "In imagination."

Ooh, he's already noticing conventions in literature! Awesome!
