Its been awhile since I did one of these, but I thought it would be good to put up some of the most recent musings from my pre-schooler...
Conversing with a 3 yr old is so Wonderland-ish. It starts off well enough “Momma, look at the moon!” But then things get all wonky, “WAIT!! That’s not our moon! That’s Grandma’s moon! It followed us home! It should go back to Grandma’s so we can have our moon back!”
Daddy to Jay: Each State has a special city called a "Capital."
Jay to Daddy: NO!! Its called a LOWERCASE!!!
Telling him Jesus would protect him didn't work. Telling him Daddy and I would protect him didn't work. Telling him that he could dream of anything he chose to didn't work. Putting the LCD star in his room to light it up didn't work. What worked to get rid of the nightmares was to tell him that Aunt Kellie packed up all the monsters in her suitcase and took them back to Colorado to set them free in the woods.
I was awakened at 3:40 am by a small boy at the side of my bed. When I asked him what he was doing out of bed, he said, "I'm jus wooking for some one to give me attention."
From the back seat: "Hey Mom, dis toy is wike David's swing shot when he fought Gowiaff! And Shrek and Grinch kind of wook awike...can I haff a Chhetoh, pwease??"
Mom! I scratched my butt and now my hand is stinky!!! Smell it!!! (uh….no thanks!)
Jayden: Mom! Cookie is pretending to be Quincy. And Quincy is pretending to be a SHARK! Mommy will you rock Quincy to sleep? He wanted to go to Monkey Joes but he can’t. He has to take a nap.
Mommy: Why does Quincy have to take a nap?
Jay: He was bad.
Mommy: What did he do that was bad?
Jayden: Mom! He’s a SHAAAAAARRRRRK!
