I've been trying to get a Tiny Talk Tuesday post up for awhile. Seems like there have been tons lately where Jeff and I have said, "That needs to go on the blog!" Unfortunately, I just haven't stayed on top of it and I know there are some cute little sayings that will be gone forever. :(
Nathan, almost 4, comes shaking his index at me, "You no talk backwards to me!" (Don't back-talk me)
Another day I had a bandage on my finger and he asked, "Mama, you got band-aid?"
Me: Yes, I cut my finger with a knife.
Nathan, paused and then shook that finger at me: "You tell you-self you sorry!"
Will (age 7), has had some laugh-out-loud misinterpretations lately, but for the life of me can't think of any! :(
However, I could easily sum up most of his brain activity with, "Can I tell a story?" He asks this at least once every day!
Witt, 2 years old, is now talking up a storm and has some cute ways of saying things:
T? for "Can I watch tv?"
He confuses "put it in the trash" and "put it in the sink" - so I've found utensils in my trash and banana peels in my sink! Bleck.
He does not refer to me as mama, mom, mother, or mommy. I am now just "Ma".
"Tanx, Ma." "Help, Ma." "No, Ma." or the really adamant, "No, Ma, No." I hear that last one a lot because:
"Me doo-et" - "I want to do it"
After Halloween, he started adding the "dy" to the end of "Can-dy" and "Dad-dy".
He's also picked up the phrase, "Awwww.... Man!"
The best from him, came a few nights ago while we were praying before bed. He likes to have his turn, too. Jeff will start the prayer and Witt copies him:
Jeff: Dear God,
Jeff: Thank you for the trees
Jeff: Thank you for my family
Jeff: Thank you for our house
Jeff: Please keep us safe
Jeff: Please help the boys to be quiet
Jeff repeats: Please help the boys to be quiet
Witt looks at Jeff: -
Jeff looks at Witt and repeats: Quiet
Witt continues to look at Jeff.
Jeff, still looking at Witt and me starting to giggle: Quiet
Jeff, holding in laughter: In Jesus name, Amen.
(**I'm still laughing as I type this. I equated it to a bride getting married and not expecting the word "obey" to show up in the wedding vows! LOL!**)
