Overheard ...

My kids say some silly stuff. Okay, mostly Mitchell says silly stuff because Noah's vocabulary is very limited right now. But, Noah apparently knows more than we think!

Here are some things Mitchell has said lately:

  • This store is damn cool, Mommy. (While at Hancock Fabrics. I squatted down and quietly explained that we don't say that word.)
  • I'll never eat as much or as fast as Noah. (Said through tears as he was totally upset after I said that no one is perfect. He was upset that he's not perfect - and he equates Noah's affinity for food as perfection.)
  • This butterfly is bigger when compared to that one. (Wow! Compared to - and he used it right!)
  • Gosh darnnit. (Overhead while he was playing "Mario Kart" on the Wii.)
  • Z. likes to collect the money. He must be Mormon. (Z. is a child in his Sunday school class who must always ask to pass the collection plate. How the love of money equates to being Mormon I just don't know!)

Also, Mitchell's favorite songs lately are "Say" by John Mayer and "Ice Ice Baby." He instructs me not to sing along with Vanilla Ice because he wants to "hear the pound of bacon part."

Noah's verbal abilities are growing everyday. Some of my favorites are:

  • Yum (See comment above re: food.)
  • Baby (He even says this to the lady at preschool who covers her baby with a blanket while in the Bjorn. How does he remember there's a baby under there?!)
  • Bobby (His doll - and he says it distinctly from Baby.)
  • Two (When he hears us say "one," he loudly says "two." We're so in trouble!)

This morning at Mitchell's preschool, Noah noticed a picture of pigs. He pointed to them and woofed. I felt silly saying, "No sweetie - those are pigs, not dogs" in front of the other parents.

Those are great! I'm envious that Noah is talking so much ... Graham is STILL just doing sound effects!

That's too cute. And really interesting that he equates his brother's stellar appetite with perfection. Right now we are stuck on "bus" and "truck." I mean obsessed! Aggh!!

Wow, Mitchell has quite the vocab! Aidan likes to memorize and quote TV shows and movies. And pretend to be different animals. Last night we saw a bunch of predatory birds from Auburn University. She apparently liked the little owl because that's what she's being today. ;)

Oh, those are great! I think I'd die if I heard my (as yet imaginary) child saying that in a store!
