cooper: momma! momma! (in the quietest voice) i have bones in my hands. bones! and muscles in my eyes! and tongue!..... do you?

cooper: nope i don't think you do. only men do!
riding in the car
cooper: momma what's a woman?
me: a grown-up girl?
cooper: oh, i'm not a woman.
cooper: but Poppy is!
me: (trying not to break the seriousness of this conversation) no poppy is a man. i am a woman though.
cooper: but no momma, you're actually just a girl.
after cooper passes gas over and over again
me: cooper do you need to go to the bathroom?
cooper: no i just farted! sometimes when you fart just a wittle bit of poop comes out. but that's okay!
while mastering the art of persuasion
cooper: well maybe if we just go to dunkin donuts to get a christmas donut real quick then i won't be mean to reid today!
cooper: and i'll eat my whole donut too!
playing outside at work waiting for the boss lady to get home
me: (turn around to see a) boss lady pulling up the driveway and b) cooper with his pants down peeing in the bushes) COOPER PULL UP YOUR PANTS RIGHTTHISMINUTE
cooper: when you gotta go, you gotta go, mom. (waddles away with his pants around his ankles)
in the middle of the night last night
cooper: (crying) it hurts, its hurts. owww momma it hurts.
me: cooper wake up, what hurts?
