Here's my little silly man. He's growing up so fast. I can't believe it! It's been a while since I've done one of these, so here it goes. I hope you enjoy!
Cuz I Want To/Cuz I Don't Want To
Both of these are common phrases around our house. I guess just plain "NO" wasn't good enough anymore. Either of these two responses come at various times of the day during various activities.
Oh, Me! That's Funny!
This is a phrase he uses if something makes him laugh, or if something occurs that he THINKS should make him laugh, but he's not quite certain. If it's the latter, he does a big fake laugh sometimes as he says this phrase.
Who's That Man?
He thinks we should know everyone that we ever see, anytime, anywhere, and although he can use the pronouns "she" and "her" in correct context, he has never, to my knowledge said, "Who's That Woman?".
What's That Man Doing?
Not only does he think we should know everyone we see, but we should also know exactly what they are doing. On the same lines as above, I don't recall ever hearing him say, "What's That Woman Doing?", although he occasionally says, "What's She Doing?" when referring to a woman that he sees somewhere.
Okay, so if you are or ever have been the parent of a 3-year-old, you know that we hear this one all the time. We strive to answer these the best we can so that he can learn about the world around him, but sometimes there is just no good answer, and sometimes that's not good enough for him.
This is what it sounds like when he tries to say "money". He'll find a coin or someone will give him a dollar, and he'll get super excited over the "muddy" and want to put it in his penny bank, or better yet, the real bank.
I've Gotta Go Pay the Bills!
He LOVES going to the mailbox...whether it be our own at the end of the driveway, the one at Nana's house, the one at Grandmama's house, or the big blue one in town, and he loves paying his bills (aka- junk mail or magazine inserts).
We are trying to teach him to pray. We bless our meals and we pray before bedtime. Sometimes it's short and sweet like, "Dear God, thank you for this food. Amen." Other times he will list off all the people that he loves and is thankful for, as well as the things he got to do that particular day such as play outside, see his friends, or even eat one of his favorite foods. (The other night at bedtime he thanked God for the hotdog he had for dinner.)
So there you have it! He's certainly a mess!
