My favourite quotes from my Aupair-kids Judy (6) and Rick (8) in 2008/09
(Starring: Mina as the mother, Joey as the father and Sparky as the dog – all names changed)

Mina: „The Bank in America collapsed…“
Rick (worried): „Oh, did anybody got hurt?“

Talking to his cousin Bob, Rick tried to brag with her babysitter
Rick: „You know Corinna’s from Germany?“
Bob (unimpressed): „Is she.“
Rick: „Yeah, she’s Michael Ballack’s girlfriend!“

While watching soccer on TV
Judy (dramatically): „Oh Ronaldo, I broke up with him!“

Judy rans into the house to her mother because her friend fell on the ground.
Mina: „Oh my God, is she alive?“
Judy (very serious): „No, she is crying!“

Joey is annoyed that kids keep running in and out during the football match.
Judy (teaching): „They are just children, dad.“

Rick (about my soccer skills): „You’re good, but you’re bad at shooting.“

Suddenly while doing his Gaelic homework into his copybook:
Rick: „Huh, where’s my Gaelic book?“
Me: „You’re writing in it…“
Rick: „Oh, yeah.“

Joey: „You’ll have a shower now, before the match.“
Rick: „Oh yeah, good point… Can Sparky come?“

Me: „And don’t forget to brush your teeth… and your mouth!“
Rick (laughs): “Why should I brush my mouth?“
Me (not giving up): „Well, could be good for your lips…“
Rick: „But I’m not kissing a girl!“

Me (mobile alarm rings): „I have to go downstairs, the cake is calling me“
Judy (interested): „How come the cake has its own phone?“

Rick is holding a bottle of coke close to Sparky.
Me: „No, don’t…“
Rick: „Will the dog get hyper?“

Rick: “I scored a girl…” [goal]

I tell Rick I showed some of the quotes to a girl I know.
Rick: “What age is she?”
Me: “21 or 22 I don’t know…”
Rick: “Is she single?”

I am singing while Rick is watching soccer.
Me: “I saw her face, it was a face I loved”…
Rick: “Ronaldo?!”
