Last month was confession time with the post Say What?! This week, following a conversation with my son, I knew it was time to write Say What?! Part 2. The words that come out of that kid's mouth leaves me shaking my head, bewildered, smiling and sometimes doubled over in laughter. Here are just a few of his gems.
"Mommy, today at school was really, really good! I actually paid attention to my teacher and the day went fast. Tomorrow I'm probably going try to pay attention again."
Finally! The secret to school revealed! It involves paying attention to the teacher when she talks.
"Night is boring. All you do is sleep."
Boring sounds so nice right about now.
"When I grow up I'm going to be a nice parent. And if my kid wants to go to the zoo and touch something that says "Do Not Touch" I'm going to let him. Unlike some people." (hostile glare in my direction)
Many years from now I plan on taking my son and grandchild to the zoo just to see what happens. (No Manatee skeletons were harmed in this trip to the zoo)
"Can I go to the store with you? I promise, I might behave."
On that note, maybe he should just stay home with Daddy.
"When I grow up I want to be the President of the United States. That way I can have a house with a bowling alley and movie theater."
I'm sure that's why all the Presidents signed on for the job.
"I think Echo (the dog) is mad at me. All I did was try to dress him in some of your clothes."
How bad of a dresser am I, when even the dog turns up his nose at my outfits?
And finally, upon hearing that what he wanted for Christmas was more than his dad and I spend on him,
"That's o.k. I'll just ask Santa!"
Now, what do I say to that?
