What is the most interesting conversation you’ve had with your kid recently?
As a mummy, I often find myself amused, bemused, amazed (or all three at the same time) at what my two little boys say.
On patience & taking turns
After a short tussle with Xav over a toy that they both want to play, Jay eventually gives in. He walks up to me and tells me solemnly.
Jay: “Mummy, I am learning patience. See? I let Xavier play with the toy even though I want to play with it too. I am learning to be patient. But it is difficult, you know.”
Jay: “Mummy, is it Xavier’s turn to learn patience now?”
On becoming a superhero (some day)
Statements Jay has made recently…
“Daddy! Do you know I now have 2 muscles? Soon it will be 3!” (as he flexes his arms proudly)
“Look at me! I’m like Incredible Hulk!” (When he changes and is just in pants)
“You look like Incredible Hulk! Haha… Like Fat Incredible Hulk!” (Seeing someone, who-shall-remain-unnamed-for fear-of-reprisals :P)
On IT and other stuff
“Mummy, can I play with your iPhone?”
“It isn’t an iPhone.”
“It’s called a Samsung Note.”
Sigh. “Never mind.” Passes him the darn phone.
It doesn’t matter what the question or statement is.
Let’s go sleep now. Do you want ice-cream? Do you want sliced fish noodles? Do you want a lollipop? Can you share that biscuit with Mummy? Say “goodbye” to your grandmother. Give Mummy a kiss! Where’s my kiss? I want my kiss NOW!
My 18 month old will tell me emphatically… “No!” Followed by a shake of the head.
The fun thing about having kids… is the funny things they say! Come and link up your Talkative Thursday posts, I’d love to read them!
