Age 3 (plus getting a new baby sister, giving up naps, and half heartedly potty training) is proving to be a bit challenging around here. But it is also bringing many cute quotable moments. Here are a few from this past week.
While sitting in his little potty, he leaned forward, placed his forehead on the ground and exclaimed: "this is yoga on the potty!"
While building a Lego replica of his sister, "I bet it will be pretty because she is pretty!"
"I think you have two bosses. [Me] sometimes and [his baby sister] always." When I said "aren't I a boss too?" he said "I think you aren't. I think you are more like the doctor."
After recovering from a particularly bad meltdown, "I guess I just wanted a snuggle."
While (successfully!) trying to get a happy photograph of both kids together),
Me: "Stop looking at your computer. You'll have computers your whole life, and your sister will only be a baby for a little while. I want a photo."
"But Mama, Herman Toothrot might come soon to talk about the banana picker and the cannibals."*
* Uh, yes, our three year old is playing a game with cannibals in it. But they are vegetarian cannibals.
And I forgot to include this in our nursery rhymes post last week. He dictated this to me for his story journal. I helped with sentence 2, to give him the hang of it, and he wrote the rest. I love how it shows his focus break down.
"New mother goose
New mother goose in a tree
Saw a bumble bee
The bumble bee went in the tree
To get a package for me
And [I] opened the package to see what was in it and mama looked to see if it was for [me] and if it was then I will play with it!"
I am linking this post up with Tiny Talk Tuesday.
