Pirate says, “Good job Mommy!” when I buckle everyone in their seats. Makes my day go just that much better. Or he’ll say, “I lub Mommy.” and throw his arms around my neck. This kid gives the BEST hugs ever.
In the car with Daddy, eating fruit snacks.
Butterfly: There’s a bear in here!
Daddy: Look out bear! There are sharp teeth in Butterfly’s mouth!
Butterfly: I’m not biting it. I’m sucking on it.
Daddy: Look out bear! There’s a tongue in there!
Butterfly: Daaaa-ad, it’s just a fruit snack. It’s not real.
Daddy: As a fruit snack, I’d be more worried about your teeth than I would be worried about a real bear as a human.
Butterfly: It’s a fruit snack. It doesn’t get scared.
Daddy: Why not?
Butterfly: *huff* I’ll have Mommy explain it to you when we get home.
Professor: Ride bike?
Mommy: No, Mommy’s legs hurt. (Horseback riding.) No bike today.
Professor: Mommy leg hurt?
Mommy: Yes. My legs hurt.
Professor: I kiss better! *kisses both my legs* All better!
Mommy: Thank you kiddo.
*pause* He stood there looking at me like he wanted something else.
Professor: Now ride bike?
