Blizzard 2011 is upon us so I’m doing a little draft post housekeeping.
“Kids say the darndest things.” Has there been a truer saying…at least one pertaining to parents?
I’ve saved some of these up for a while now and finally need to share them before I lose the crumpled piece of paper they’re scribbled on.
Oldest to my youngest during Christmas decorating:
“And these are the socks that we hang on the mantle” – Stockings
My oldest, while watching the Biggest Loser Car Giveaway challenge:
“I wish I could win a car. You know, one of those ones without a top. Those are sweet rides!”
My youngest during potty training while marveling his latest “creation”:
“Look, Mommy! I made a ship!”
“Hey, don’t say that word!”
“Look, Mommy! I made a BOAT!”
Before heading to meet up with Braden’s lifetime “girlfriend” for a library reading date:
Me: “Braden, why do you smell like mint?”
Braden: “Cuz I put my Moose-stash on to go see Maddie.”
He thinks putting chap stick around your mouth is giving yourself a mustache. Apparently this is a requirement for toddler “dates”.
Teaching Parents A Lesson
Boys dancing around the house singing, “Pimp My Ride! Pimp My Ride!”
Husband and wife look at each other in horror? HUH?
Lanham: Well, YOU were the one that left the teenager show on the in the basement.
Even thought Braden’s 3 yr. old vocab is pretty extensive at this point, he still uses some of these quirky ways to describe common objects.
Boo Boo Tattoo – Band-Aid
Koo Koos – cookies
Mulk – Milk given when he wakes up and right before bed, said with as little sleepy boy effort as possible
Gurt with straw – drinkable yogurt with a straw
Mater the Ho Twuck – Mater from the Cars movie
Meow Meow – cat
Meat – Oscar Meyer salami…period Please note that he does eat other meat, but he calls them by their own proper names, like steak, chicken, etc.
That’s all I got tonight…hope you’re all staying toasty warm…wherever you may be. We’ll be enjoying our first Snow Day tomorrow!
