Noah says...

Inspired by a series from my muppet-giveaway-winner's blog (here), I am "series-lifting" and starting one on my 6-year-old son's quotable quotes.

Noah is a very sweet, affectionate boy. At bedtime, I always find myself in a tangled cuddle with him. While his arms and legs are wrapped around me and my arm around him, it is common for him to ask me to hug him with my other arm too. He will even pull my arm past his body so my hug is even tighter. A few months ago, while hugging me at bedtime, he said, "Mommy, I wish I could Mighty Bond myself to you so I can hug you forever."

My husband handled the Mighty Bond brand of adhesives for years so Noah knows it so well. So well, that he's used it a couple of times in the past year...

One of Noah's front teeth fell off prematurely because of an accident on a slide. He's been bungi (missing a tooth) for 2 years now and on his last trip to the dentist, he asked her when his tooth would come out. "I need 2 more birthdays to get my tooth back?!" A pause, as he goes deep in thought. "Can they use Mighty Bond and put back my other tooth?"

And just last month, when he took a bath in my bathroom after I had just taken my bath, he asked why I left hair on the floor. I told him they fell off. He replied, "Why don't you Mighty Bond your hair to your head?" 

Ah yes, Mighty Bond. The solution to all our glue-ing needs.
