Name That Quote

Bitty's newest achievement is memorizing lines from books and movies then repeating them at the oddest times. Which makes for a fun game for Mama and Daddy as we try and guess where he's learned the latest little gem.

On the way to Mass this morning: (Hint, it's from a book.) "Don't ever, EVER dig holes under this fence!"

At dinner last night: "I never thought I'd see the day when an ant put himself ahead of the colony."

And when it's not lines from a movie or a book, he's repeating what he's learned from his relatives:
"Grandpa says, 'Righty-tighty, lefty-loosey!'"
"Aunt Mary says, 'Uh-oh, SpaghettiOs!'"

So watch what you say around Bitty. It may be repeated time and time again. (As Mama learned the hard way when she dropped a glass bottle of salad dressing on her foot -- her broken while dancing thus ending her dancing career arthritic left foot -- thankfully it was only the 'bad darn-it' word and not something much worse!)
