I swear both of my boys say the most hilarious (to me, at least) things almost every day. At the time, they crack me up. And I think to myself, "I have to tell their dad (or grandparents) about that, later." But I usually forget. And then I wish I'd written them down.
Do you ever do that?
So, I'm using the power of social media to preserve a few of these gems for posterity. And by "posterity", I mostly mean to torture them with when they are older.
Please to enjoy ...
Bam-Bam, picking up my umbrella: "Does it shoots? Like da Ping-wen?"
Me: "Nope, sorry."
Bam-Bam: "Aww, man. Dat wud be bedder."
The week before The Super Bowl:
Me: "We'll go to the library Sunday."
The Professor: "Mommy, Sunday is a Holiday!"
The Professor: "It's Feasting and Football Day!"
Husband: *Sheepish Grin*
The Professor: "I learned to French kiss today!"
The Professor: *plants air-kisses on each side of my face*
Me: "Oh!!! That's GREAT, Sweetie!"
On the way home from the Sitter's, driving by plant nursery:
Bam-Bam: "Plants! Plants turn into pizza!"
Me: "Watched Wall-E today, didja?"
Bam-Bam, getting out of tub, genuinely freaked out:
"Aaaaaahhhhh! Mommy, my hands are OLD!!"
The Professor: "Mom, Bam-Bam is adopted."
Me: "Um, no, he's not. What makes you think that?"
The Professor: He doesn't look anything like me! Except for our skin."
Me: "Honey, what do you think 'adopted' means?"
The Professor: It means 'different'.
Me: "No. That's not what it means. C'mere and let's talk about where some babies come from ..."
At the dinner table:
The Professor to Bam-Bam, the finicky-eater (In a bad British accent.):
"You can't have any pudding if you don't eat yer meat."
Bam-Bam: I have 5 arms and swim backwards! What am I?
Me: Um, a squid?
Bam-Bam: A michelinoceras!
(Yeah. I had to look it up, too. Thank you, DinosaurTrain.)
6yo: Know who I love best? You, Mommy ... And Gaga (Grandma) ...
6yo: Oh, and the Yo-Yo guy! (who performed at his school last week.) He's awesome!
