Will was quiet for a minute and replied just as straight-faced and serious with, "Was that... a joke?"
I busted out laughing because it was such an innocent question and yet hilarious at the same time... maybe you just had to be there. :) Will is really trying to figure out jokes and some of the ones he comes up with are doozies that just don't make sense at all, but he laughs and laughs.
He replied with, "Caa fu cup"
I thought he was saying, "Can't find cup," while he was digging through the cupboard looking for one. He said, "No! Caa fu cup."
I repeated, "You can't find your cup?"
Again, "NO! Caa fu cup."
This time I really listened and I repeated, "Careful cup?"
Nathan, "Uh huh huh." ... always a second huh. :)
So then I asked, "What is a careful cup?"
He reached further in the cupboard and pulled out a non-sippy topped cup!
Yes, Nathan, that is a careful cup... be careful while you drink from it!
Another from Nathan that has been going on for a while: When he sees a tractor or a large truck, he says, "Papaw woo like." (Papaw would like!) Sometimes kids do know what they are talking about! :)
"how" - house
"mou" - mouse
"kaa" - cat
"baa" - box
"tuh" - truck
His most common words, however, are still "No!" and "Mine!" :) Bless his heart, with two older brothers he's learning to stick up for himself rather quickly!
