August, looking at a cookbook: Look at this picture! It's chocolate pretzals on a coordinating candy plate.
Me: coordinating? [man, my kid is bright]
August: No, I said 'hardin-ating'.
August: 'Hardin-ating'. Like, it's hard and getting harder. Like your skin is hardinating. And that brownie in this picture is hardinating. And hardinating is when things are hard.
[And, back to normal]
