For a blog entitled “Life With A Little One and More,” there has been remarkably few posts about the Little One…and whole lot about the more! Well, today I’m going to write about my little one and some of the amusing things he’s been coming out with lately. They’ve cracked us up and I hope you get a chuckle out of them too!
Exchange #1: How Mommy Is Messing Up The Little One
The other day, apropos of nothing, we had this little exchange, which goes to show you that they listen to everything you say and file it away as the gospel truth.
Little One: “I know a word that starts with E.”
Mommy: What is it, sweetie?
Little One: Angel.
Mommy: Well, honey. Angel doesn’t start with E. It starts with A. But those A and E sounds can be confusing.
Little One: Oh.
Mommy: Do you know what an angel is?
Note: We hadn’t talked much about angels that I could remember so I wasn’t sure exactly where this was coming from. Always fun to follow these non sequiturs to see where they lead.
Little One: Yeah…they roll balls around.
Mommy (confused): They roll balls around?
Little One: Yeah..up in the clouds. That is why there is thunder. Remember, Mommy?
Indeed Mommy does. It all came back to me. A while back during a thunderstorm that was scaring the bejeezus out of the Little One, I told him the old classic about how you don’t need to be scared of thunder because it is just angels bowling up in the clouds. (I remember being told this myself as a child.) Apparently he remembered that. It is just too cute to correct him for the time being…and how would I explain angels to a 4-year-old anyway?
Exchange #2: Thanks for Nothing, Kiddo!
The other day, my husband was building cool Lego things for my son. (I’ll post some of them sometime…they are really quite creative and interesting.) Anyway, the following exchange went down.
Little One: You are amazing, Daddy!
Daddy (blushing): Why thank you! I appreciate it. Why don’t you go tell Mommy what you just told me? (Meaning “go tell Mommy how great you think Daddy is.”)
Little One (misunderstanding): But Mommy isn’t amazing.
Little One: She is cute though.
Insert Daddy’s loud laughter here.
Exchange #3: That’s Not Why Daddy Likes Them…
This one came a few days after he watched a football game with his dad and saw cheerleaders.
Little One: Mommy, I like cheerleaders.
Mommy: Oh really. Why, honey?
Little One: Because they have those fluffy hands.
Have any cute kid exchanges to share? Please do so! I love stuff like this!
