Overheard at G2 . . .


I am so happy it’s Wednesday

I missed you

Me too

Want to see what I can do?

Actually this project is for you!

Would you like to help with that?

Maybe next time.

Will you teach me how?



These are not blocks… they’re pets

OK, this is for the championship

See this button? It makes the car fly.

Looking good!

I think that is wonderful

Here is your cupcake, (whispering) but don’t really eat it

Here, you be this guy

Look what you did all by yourself!

I’ll follow your lead

I like that even better

In this game, I actually get two turns

Whoa! How did you do that?

I’m listening

I bet you that’s enough scotch tape

Wait you play this when you were little?

We have time to play one more thing

Let’s clean up together


I love you

See you next time

I can’t wait

I have a mustache just like yours
