Tiny Talk Tuesday
I was taking a bath, and he wanted me to open the front door for him (so he could get outside to see Daddy). I told him that I couldn't open the door from the bath. He said: "We will move the tub out there!" I said, laughing, "how do you think we could move the tub?" He said: "Umm, we could...we could...we could...[wheels clearly turning] use a special screwdriver to move the tub!"
I was taking him on a kids helicopter ride at the State Fair, after he had already ridden it earlier with his Dad. So I asked him how it worked. He said: "You steer and you have a handle you pull to go up and down and also sometimes you say 'you are doing very well!'"
After hugging me in the supermarket, "because I love you sooooo much. This much!" (hands spread wide).
Helping me mop the kitchen floor: "I will get this black spot. Yes, I got it all. It was hard, but I got it all, because I am a hard worker." (I don't remember ever using that phrase with him, but I guess I must have!).
Mumbling and running into the art supply room with his stool (I've learned to be very afraid when I see him running around with his stool lately).
Me: "What are you getting in there?"
Him: "I am getting some glue, because see, this [paper plate] mask falls right off my face" (demonstrates).
Me: "Well, wait, what are you going to do, glue the mask to your face?"
Him: [long pause] "Umm, no, I will get some pretend glue."
"Oh, I just remembered something!" ("remembered" often seems to mean "realized."). . . "I remembered that Lemons Are Not Red and lemons are yellow, and this book is yellow!"
I am linking this post up with Tiny Talk Tuesday.
