Hey y’all! Happy Tuesday – before Thanksgiving! I hope you all get a few days respite and time with your family this week!
I’ve noticed that what I’m writing each week is getting a little more conversational. Even J is getting to be a big boy (and did you see he’s in his big boy bed now?!) with the way he talks. It’s getting good, folks. Enjoy!
Me: It’s raining today, so let’s put your boots on.
J: No, I don’t wan’ wear ma boops!
Me: Okay, well let’s just get dressed.
(Puts all the other clothes on.)
J: Mom! I wan’ wear ma boops!
Just act like it was his idea.
For J, when he gets in trouble, he sits in time out. And apparently I’ve been speaking too harshly, or else he knows just how to dramatize it. Sometimes, randomly, he’ll shout, “Time out!” and point to the hallway (where our time out spot is) and not crack a single smile. I don’t necessarily feel like I shout it, or say it without explanation, but he gets the point.
Overheard from the other room…
EK: Hop in there, Joe Joe!
EK: We’ve got to get to home!
EK: Come on, Bing Bong!
Hubby, coming into the room: Do you know what they’re doing? It took me a while to figure out… They’re playing “Inside Out”.
Me: And of course, J is Bing Bong (the imaginary cotton candy-elephant-cat).
Instead of asking for eggs like he normally does, J has started calling them eggies. A little throwback, perhaps?
Hartley: They have really good collard greens here.
Me: Are they spicy?
J: Are you spicy?
Annie, upon giving EK a Lindor truffle: Did that taste really good?
Annie: What did it taste like?
EK: A bird in my mouth!
J: Mom! Look!
Me: What is it?
J: A that!
Me: A what?
J: A fire truck!
It was a yellow car.
Driving home from the store, we had a case of wine in the back seat…
EK: Be quiet, wines!
Are your kids funny, too? I want to hear what they say!
