Happy Tuesday! I’ve had a nice, relaxing week or two of not writing much, and not writing down every single funny thing that happens at our house, but here are a few good ones! Hope you have a lovely, funny Tuesday!
After an afternoon of pulling D off the stairs…
J: No no, rascal. You gotta come down. You can’t go up the stairs.
EK, unprompted: Can we let J wear panties now?
Me: Not yet, babe. But we’re trying.
While this was happening:
I hand J a small apple…
J: Is this a peach, mom?
Me: No, it’s just a small apple.
J: Is it a peach apple?
Me: No, just an apple.
J: I like peach apples, mom!
Me: Okay, bud.
Me: I love you a lot.
EK: I love you way more than a balloon string.
Driving on a road near some train tracks, and I hear EK really crying from the backseat…
Me: What’s wrong?
EK: I wanted to look at the train tracks but J said I can’t! (More wailing.)
Me: He can’t make you not look out the window, babe.
EK: I see them! I see the train tracks!
J, very thoughtfully: Mama, sometimes is a long time.
EK: I just pooped, and I didn’t wipe so well. Some poopy got on my leg.
J, in the same breath: You’re a sweet little mommy. You’re a sweet little rabbit.
Side section: Words that J now uses correctly, even if he can’t pronounce them:
Well, that’s what’s getting shouted and said around our house. What are the kids in your life talking about?
