Hellooooooo Tuesday! Last week was blissfully spent with very little social media and very much sunshine and sand… and now that I’m back, I didn’t write quite everything down. But I’ve got a few little nuggets of Toddler Truth for you. Enjoy!
Talking about the dentist… and changing minds…
J: I don’t really want to go.
EK: Well the last time I was there I got a new toothbrush and could pick my toothpaste!
J: Well I guess I could do that.
EK: Mom! J just changed his mind about he dentist! He said he didn’t want to go but now he’s kind of incited! He changed his mind! You know, the whole world can change sometimes.
Me: That got serious quickly.
My mom: Listen! It’s so cute the way he says this! J, what color is this?
J: Toyquoise. It’s light blue.
J, as we passed a bread truck, covered in pictures of different sweet breads: Is that a special treat truck? Can we go where it’s going?
Our babysitter: While you were at the beach, did you eat some seafood?
EK: Yeah, but I didn’t like the seafood. But they had hush puppies, and I was like, “Oh my gosh, they’re dying me!” And then I said, “I’m going to eat all that stuff!”
And me, overhearing it from the other room, dying laughing.
I’ve listened to EK say mermaid incorrectly for a long time now, and I finally realized what she was saying: mername.
J, watching the first 30 seconds of A Bug’s Life: This is my bothest part! My favoritest! I’m gonna die about this part!
D, asking for more noodles: Doddles! Doddles, peez! Mo’ doddles peez, mama!
J in his car seat: Ugh a bug! Shoo shoo shoo! You’re making me stupid, bug!
J and D’s new favorite song: “Trust In Me” from (the old cartoon movie) The Jungle Book. You know, the song that Kaa the snake sings? So J is into slithering around, singing, “Trusssssssssst in meeeeeee….”
J, when he knows he’s in trouble: When we get home, could I play for just a little bit tad?
Well what are your kids saying? Do they have songs they sing or things they quote that are funny?
