Kids say the most darn things.
It’s true- If you have kids you know exactly what I’m talking about. I can write a humor book about all the things my kids have said.
(Well, what Miles has said. Bennett isn’t quite two yet and his most comprehensible sentence is “I wan dow.- Which I translate to mean: I want down.)
I love my kids- And turning them into GEEKS is a lifelong mission of mine. But for the time being- I’m cherishing the craziness of raising two toddlers. So here are a collection of my favorite child sayings… Or, toddler sayings…
“I have bones in my belly, so I need milk…”
“You flushed the toilet, I needed to say goodbye to my poop…”
“You need a hug, you mad at Miles. Hug make you happy…” (Always his way of avoiding a spanking)
“Why, daddy? Why, daddy? Why, daddy? Why, daddy? Why…”
“Twinkle, spider, up the water spout…” (Itsy Bitsy Spider remixed w/ Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star)
“Bennett pulled me into his crib, I not climb…” (As he & Bennett are in the crib asleep together)
“I need to turn the dark on…” (As he flips all the lights off in the house.)
Miles Reprimands mommy…
MOMMY: “Bennett Lucas Johnson”
MILES: No mommy, I don’t like that. It’s just Bennett.”
“Aunt Jess, you go at Red Lights and Stop at Green ones…”
Trying to get him to nap…
Aunt Jess: “Miles lay down and take a nap…”
Miles: “Yes, Jess, Yes… (As he continues to roll around and not nap)
“Aunt Nelle, we need to find a beetle with a missing leg…”
“Water breaks my bones…”
I’m certain if I thought about it longer, I could come up with about twenty more. But the truth is, with all the bruises, crying, sibling fighting, head bumps, messes they make (My God the messes) and no matter how many times I crash on my pillow at night after I have pulled what little hair I have left out- This is one of the greatest ages.
It’s the age of small dinosaurs that you step on barefoot, crayon on the walls, the age where they desire to be hugged when they’ve gotten hurt, the time when they actually get excited when you walk in the door, and the time they realize what light sabers are and how to use them.
It is the age of Toddlers- Cherish them- Always.
