I'm a mom too! I haven't really spent much of my blogging time really talking about the beautiful bits of sunshine that grace my days with new language and funny stories. I usually have at least one kid story every single day. Sometimes, they're short and just silly. Other times, there's so much context in the stories, they're almost impossible to share unless you know all the back story. I can't be alone in this.
The mini-mann has a way with words. Seriously! Sometimes, I'm sure he's kidding. His newest saying is, "One uponce a time..." Without hesitating, he drops this phrase at the beginning of an imaginary story of his design. Other times, he'll say things like, "Which color would you prefer?" A couple of days ago, he told me he NEEDED Dad's combustible pants. Um, combustible pants? I had to think about it for a bit, but in the end it was camoflauge. Silly!
Middle Mann is silly too! He doesn't really talk 'out loud' about what he's thinking. Instead, he does this funny little thing where he puts in hand over his face and reacts in a high pitched quiet voice. Sometimes, he's having conversations with other people in the room, but he does all the voices. He always does all the voices. Other times, he'll just narrate races with the amazing Wesley Gordon (that's him) behind the wheel of the winning car. He does after race interviews this way. He is both the interviewer and the interviewee. When he's in trouble, he'll go into his high pitched place and tell me what he really thinks about what he's just been told. It's really funny unless you actually listen to some of it. When you really listen, it's very heart telling.
My sweetie? She's been really struggling with word finding lately. Words are coming out with all different kinds of consanants in all different kinds of orders. Arfidicial? Oh, you mean artificial!
Needless to say, there are so many little -ism's in this house, it's a wonder we can communicate at all! Good thing we all love each other so much. It keeps life interesting.
