Oh, the things this kid says

I was driving the other day, and had accelerated so I could change lanes without cutting another driver off. From the backseat I hear, “Mama! Slow DOWN!”


I’m getting a new bicycle! This weekend we were at one bike shop looking at them, and left to go to another bike shop that was across the parking lot. I decided to walk with O, and told him we were going to go look at more bikes across the parking lot. So as we’re walking through the parking lot he’s jabbering, “Mo’ bike! Cars backing up!” Suddenly he stops and tries to pull me back in the direction we came from, “Bikes THIS way!” “No, dude, bikes are this way, through the parking lot. Come on, we have to go, daddy drove the car, we have to go find him.” He stands still for a minute and says, “(something I couldn’t make out but will assume it was “are you”) kidding me mama?” I looked at him and said, “No, I’m not kidding you. Let’s get moving!”


He cracks me up. Every.single.day.

He’ll be two on Sunday, and to be perfectly honest, I’m amazed. He amazes me. All the time.

  1. I cannot believe he is going to be TWO! “Are you kidding me?” is cracking me up. Evan has started going “Awwww MAN!” when he’s disappointed, complete with a shoulder slump. I

    If it weren’t for the tantrums, I’d take this age forever.

    • I had someone tell me, when O was about 3 months old, that their favorite kid age was 18mo-3yrs. I heard that and thought, “Whatever. 3 months is pretty awesome.” I TOTALLY get what that guy was telling me now.

    Yeah, there’s a lot to like about 2, in spite of its bad reputation. What a talkative little guy!

    I recently found your site (I think via MamaFesto) and i really enjoy reading it. Funnily enough, our kids are like 2 days apart in age – mine was born 9/13/09 🙂

    Thanks for blogging and providing a resource and a place to share and laugh.

    • I’m glad you enjoyed reading! I hope you’ll continue reading, and offer some insight into all these age appropriate challenges my kid is throwing at me.
