Happy Tuesday, y’all! I hope your last bit of summer is relaxing, as ours will hopefully be over the next two weeks. We are all done traveling for a while, thank goodness. Here are the week’s funnies!
EK: When we get inside, do you want me to tell you about the helmet of the armor of God?
J: No, I don’t wear helmets.
EK: When I get to kindergarten, I gotta stop doing baby things, do my ABCs (she’s ticking these items off on her fingers as she lists), be nice to my brothers, do what I’m supposed to do… then I’ll be doing the kindergarten thing.
Me: You sure will!
D, about five times in a row, holding his hand out: Too so! Too so! Too so!
Me, finally figuring it out: Too slow! Oh!
He wanted to play the high five game: up high, down low, in the middle, too slow!
Watching Star Wars Episode II, and I’m reading the beginning aloud…
Me: …mysterious Count Dooku…
Me: …to help the overwhelmed Jedi…
J: Well that was a lot of words.
EK, trying to tell me about Amidala: I love Queen Mazilla.
EK: I shared my blueberries with J!
J: Yeah! I asked her for some and she thinked about it, and den she said yes!
D runs up in a hat…
J: Looks like pirate D is here.
EK: Can we stay up till bednight?
Me: Do you mean midnight?
J: There’s many scary creatures at the midnight in the darkness… like the uglyfish. And a stinky sock! And like a shrimp!
The other night, D spent five minutes holding up different colors blocks and shouting: “Mooooom! Mooooom! Blue? Mooooom! Mooooom! Geen?” (And so on.)
Then earlier today, he spent 5 minutes sitting still on his tricycle as I tried to read my book, screaming, “Moooooom!” until I looked at him. I’ve come to the conclusion he needs a lot of affirmation right now.
Well, what are you kids saying these days??
