Folks, I have quotes from Christmas I still haven’t shared. Yep, I’m that far behind. Getting the house ready for the market, buying a house, and working through job relocation (going on 7 months now in this process) is kicking our butts. Oh, and planning a vacation. Because why not throw one more thing in there to do? In other news, the moving company is here today, and it’s going swimmingly. Many people have told us this is the most stressful day ever, but alas, I’m sipping a hot tea and finding time to blog, so whatev. Anyway, on to the good stuff:
Watching Barney, who sings some song about a black and white cow…
Matty: Whatchoo talkin’ about Barney? Cows not white, a sheep is white!
Matty: Me a cat! (licks foot and rubs his face with it)
On a side note, I had a girl in my class while teaching who used to do this with her hand. I thought she was strangest girl ever. Lesson learned, Karma. Lesson learned.
Me: Are you a boy or girl?
Matty: A boy!
Me: What about me?
Matty: You’re a girl.
Me: What about Daddy?
Me: What about Grandpa?
Matty: A man!
At Lowe’s getting a single piece of flexline pipe (like a 6″ item). We had an entire flatbed cart because, you know, shopping with a toddler and all…Eric turns down a different aisle:
Matty: (at the top of his flippin’ lungs) Way-a-minute! Way-a-minute! Daaaaad! No! Not go that way! Daaaad!
Matty was at the babysitter’s house, with another boy his age. The other boy started crying:
Matty: Stop that whining, Bear. Only baby’s cry. You cry like a baby. (gets in his face miming crying)
OMG, this kid has no social skills when it comes to other kids. He also told the parents he doesn’t like their new baby, so, yeah…
Sitting in the living room, and a robin lands in the yard:
Matty: (jumps off the couch and runs out the door–pushing it open so hard I was afraid the glass was going to break) A parrot! A parrot bird in my own yard!!
At the park, playing in the ampitheatre (because heaven forbid he play on the playground with other kids).
Matty: (runs up on stage) The show must go on!
Smells a flower
Matty: Mmmm, it smells good!
Me: What’s it smell like?
Matty: (thinks hard) It smells like lettuce. And cake!
