I used to do a "toddler quotes" post once in a while in my old blog and it was so fun. I love writing down all the things B says. I love when he mispronounces words and I love seeing him make a big effort to get his point across when his little mind is ahead of his vocabulary. He has BIG imagination and it is great taking a peek inside his world.
We've had some pretty random and interesting conversations recently.
Me: Please don't kick that chair.
B: I'm not kicking! I am dribbling.
Me: No running inside the house, please.
B: I can't stop!! My legs are dizzy! (looks at his legs) Stop making me hyper, legs!!
B: "Mommy, cows lay milk and yogurt".
B: Where are my sunny glasses?
Me: Sunny glasses? Do you mean sunglasses?
B: No, I mean sunny glasses. You don't wear them when it is sun, you wear them when it is sunny!
B: Mommy, I speak a new language.
Me: Really? Is it Spanish?
B: No, it is called Christmas. Christmas language.
Me: Oh, really? What is it like?
B: Hm. Almost like French. Similar, but not the same.
Me: Ok, can you tell me some words?
B: Sure! Tred is tree, sompa is Santa, and shemah is reindeer.
Me: Oh, nice. Do you think I can learn your language?
B: It is not my language. I didn't buy it yet. You can learn it, but it is difficult for mommies to learn it. You will need to pretend you are little like me. Not baby. I am not a baby. I am just little, but big.
Me: Um, ok. Can you teach me your language?
B: No. Sorry. You will need to go to Antarctica to learn it there and spend some time with the penguins. Penguins speak antarctic language, but maybe that is easier for you since you are big.
B: Mommy, I opened a new shop.
Me: Really? What kind of shop?
B: A pee shop.
Me: A pee shop?! You sell pee?
B: Noooo! I don't sell pee. I just show little kids how to use the bathroom and tell them to wash their hands.
Me: Oh, so you are a potty trainer?
B (thinking): No, I don't sell trainers.
Me: I mean, you teach people how to use the potty.
B: No, I am not a teacher, I am a shopper.
Me: You mean a shopkeeper?
B: Hm. Ok, you can keep my shop. I can share it with you, but just for a little while and then you give it back, ok?
Needless to say, we have tons of communication issues.
