Every word he says

Yes, I'm becoming the sterotypical "mommy blogger" . . . posting, seemingly, every word that comes out of my child's mouth. But it's my blog. And someday, I'll want to look back and remember this stuff. Either that, or someday I'll look back and make fun of myself . . . that's a distinct possibility.


Jack's favorite expressions:

"Ai yai yai"

"So escited!"


"Oh, buddy."

"Oh my gosh" and "Oh my goodness" Though, we're trying to keep him from saying these things. I don't know why, but they just don't sound great coming from a 22 month old.

"Sorry, obey . . . sorry, obey!" He's usually saying this as we walk him to time out.


Kyle: What time did you wake up from your nap, buddy?

Jack: Midnight

Um, no, but how does he even know what midnight is? Where is he picking up this stuff?!


The typical conversation between us and Jack goes something like this:

Jack: Jack have hertithith?

Me: What did you say?

Jack: Yeah. Have it

Me: No, I don't know what you're saying. What do you want?

Jack: Yeah.

It's so frustrating for both of us.


Here's another conversation we had from yesterday in which I was totally busted.

Jack: More hot dog, please.

Me: No more hot dog, but you can have more broccoli.

Jack: More hot dog, please.

Me: Jack, the hot dog is all gone. We don't have any more. But you can have more broccoli.

Jack: (Scanning the room and then pointing toward the 1/2 hot dog that I had forgotten to put away) There hot dog! Found it, mommy!

That's what I deserve for lying to my child, I suppose.

blogging ensures you'll always have a record of those precious moments... for when they become teenagers. ugg!
