As I said yesterday, Subvet had a little wreck in our only car. We had it towed home and it now sits looking very sad and crumpled in our driveway awaiting the ins adjuster. Sonshine saw the van and said he wanted to go in the car. I said we couldn't because it was broken. He replies, "Daddy fix the batteries. I want to go in car!" AAH, if only it were as simple as changing the batteries! This got me to thinking about other things this 3 1/2 year old says that makes me smile. As a part of his delay issues he will get a phrase or word he's heard stuck in his head and it will be repeated at odd times throughout his day. Remember the saying that little pitchers have big ears?? Well, they forgot to mention the enormous mouth that's attached!! So, here are a few things we've heard at precisely the wrong moment.
"Oh, for crying out loud."
"Stupid is as stupid does."
"Good Rip, Daddy, Good rip." (after Daddy passes gas)
"Baby Sister eating passy." (pacifier)
"Kitty spanking my hand."
"Jesus, Mary and Joseph!!"
"I can not believe it!"
"Daddy sleeping." followed by loud snoring sounds
And the funniest of all (to me) is that now every morning Sonshine puts in his breakfast order. When Subvet or I open the door to the boys' room every morning, Sonshine starts by saying "We have pancakes for breakfast." or "We have donut holes for breakfast" or "We have chocolate cookies for breakfast."
For some reason, he never asks for eggs and milk.
