minivan moments

the things you hear in transit:


the scene::the boys are digging in their backpacks for their "good day treats" after picking them up from MMO.

seth: mama, i had a great day! i got smarties.
luke: i had a good day too. i got a sucker.
me: seth, smarties mean you are smart.
seth: yep, they sure do!
luke: suckers mean you suck.
me: (stifling a laugh/snort combo) luke, it doesn't mean you suck. don't say that.
luke: people do suck mama. you know, like babies. they suck their "fumbs"...like ally claire sucks hers.
me: well, i guess. but sissy doesn't suck her thumb anymore. she likes a paci now.
luke: well, people still suck.

how do you argue that??
