We love this silly boy and are so thankful for him and for all the joy he brings to our lives. He loves to laugh and he sure makes us laugh! Sometimes he does it on purpose by telling jokes or repeating things he noticed we found funny in the past. Sometimes it’s just the combination of his sweet face, his little voice, and the way his mind works that has us in stitches. Here are a few of our recent conversations. We hope they make you laugh too!
B: Who is going to go first?
L: I know! “Eenie, meanie, miney, mo, kitchen tiger by its toe.”
B: Kitchen tiger?
L: Yeah. You go first Mommy.
L: Mommy, can we have quesadillas for dinner?
B: Well, it’s Father’s Day so we’ll let Daddy pick what he wants for dinner.
L: Okay. But when is it Kid’s Day?
L: Mommy, when is Daddy going to be home?
B: He’s on his way.
L: I want him to be home now!
B: Okay, well, if you count to 100, then he will be home.
L: Okay! 10, 20, 30…
L: Mommy, will you make my lunch now?
B: Sure, but let me lay down for two minutes, I’m tired.
L: But I’m not tired!
B: That’s because you’re a strong, young boy and I’m an old lady.
L: You’re a mom, not a lady.
L: Mommy! Come see my farm! But you have to call first to see if it’s open.
B: Okay…ring ring…
B: Hi, I was wondering if the farm was open so I could come and see the animals?
L: I’m sorry, you have the wrong number. This is the doctor’s office.
[At lunch time…]
B: Hey, there’s a family of lions on my chair, I can’t sit down!
L: It’s okay, Mommy.
B: It’s okay to move them?
L: No, you can eat somewhere else. Or you can stand.
L: I don’t want to!
B: I know you don’t, but sometimes you just have to obey Mommy and Daddy. It’s hard when it’s something you don’t like, but Mommy and Daddy have to obey too. We have to obey God.
L: But who has to obey kids?
L: Mommy, soccer players fall a lot.
B: That’s true, sometimes they trip or bonk into each other.
L: Yeah, you fall a lot in soccer but you don’t fall in golf. Only if you’re wearing the wrong pants.
L: Daddy, Mommy and I have been talking.
L: Yeah. You are really forgetful, but we love you anyway.
