From the mouths of babes

More little funnies from the boy...

"Iss my song! Iss my song!" proudly triumphed from the backseat on more than one separate occasion when the little trumpet fanfare comes on to signal the start of "All Things Considered" on NPR. I have yet to figure this one out, how he has latched on to this little seconds-long fanfare out of everything on the radio.

"Day doo, Gah, for my Mama, Papa, TV, be a dood boy (be a good boy), no hitting, no Tung Fu Panda, no be mean, AYYYYY-men!" Hmmm. Can you tell that we've really been talking it up about no more naughtiness at school, please? Although I am rather thankful that we now have a little extra prayer for good behavior being said. We can, er, sometimes use all the help we can get on making it a full day at school without an altercation with one of our little friends. Ah yes, I use the term "we" very lightly here...

While passing a semi truck, or rather, being passed by a semi-truck on the highway, the following little conversation was struck up:
Boy: "Mama, who made dat tuck?" (Who made that truck? -- right now, he is all into who made something, where did it come from, etc. type questions)
Me: "Baby, I don't know. That's a good question!"
Boy: (very matter-of-factly) "God. God diddit."
I love how if it is impressive to my boy in any way, shape or form, he is automatically sure of himself that God must have done it. Too cute.

And on Sunday at lunch, we were asking him about his Sunday School class and what Bible story he heard that day:
Me: "Did you hear a Bible story today in class?"
Him: "Yes. 'Bout Jesus." (Jesus. Always the right answer in Sunday School if you don't really know the answer, haha.)
Me: "And what did Jesus do in the story?"
Him: "Fight the bad duys. Said don't be afaid."
Of course, in his little world, Jesus' favorite pasttime is the same as his -- "fighting the bad guys". And the "don't be afraid" part? He is still quoting the only phrase he latched on to from the Nativity story (when the angels told the shepherds to not be afraid) and inserting it into every single Biblical-related question we ask. Ha.

Sounds like you are going to have your hands full with that guy - isnt it funny, the things that come out of their little brains?

Although I've never met you or your son, I embrace the fact that he is sure that Jesus is fighting the bad guys and says don't be afraid. He's got the truth of the matter down pat.

I love it! What a sweet and funny collection of kid quotes. Makes me miss that baby talk. Oh, and if your son needs a behavior chart, your teacher will probably let you know! :) It's basically evaluating behavior at certain junctures throughout the day (and then letting mom know how the day went!) We have an awesome teacher who is always on top of everything. :)
