My little guy Ike is a bit of a character. Sometimes he says weird things, as kids tend to do. My friends and family get a laugh out of it when I post quotes from him on Facebook, so today is his day on the blog. Enjoy. (For reference, Ike was five years old for most of these. I don’t have time to search farther back on Facebook. Simon was seven or eight)
Ike: “Mom, I’m goin’ upstairs, you stay here.”
Me: “Why, what are you doing?”
Ike: “NUFFIN’ YOU NEED TO WORRY ABOUT.”
(I was VERY worried.)
Ike: “Simon! I can’t sleep with you crying!”
Me: “You could show some sympathy…”
Ike: “Simon, you’re wearin’ socks and you feet are gonna get stinky.”
Ike: “Well, I don’t know what symmafee is.”
Ike: “I got celery juice in my eye! It’s ok, it feels good… No, wait. Nope, it feels bad.”
Ike: “Mommy? Mommy? Mommy-mommy.”
Me: “Stop saying mommy, please.”
Ike: “Mommy mommy.”
Me: “Hey, what did I say?”
Ike: “I meant the ones with the toilet paper wrapped around them. Mummies. I just say that now. You can’t be mad.”
Actual conversation re: summer camp:
Me: So you think you might want to go to camp?
Simon: How long would it be?
Me: Looks like it would be–
Ike: I want to go on a train!
Me: Yes, later. Four nights.
Simon: I’d miss you.
Ike: Where’s the train?
Me: There IS no train.
Simon: *looks at pamphlet* How old do kids have to be? When is it?
Ike: I’ll go!
Me: You’re too young, baby.
Ike: *slams head into table* I’M TOO YOUNG TO GO ON THE TRAIN?!
Me: No! You can go on the train when we go to Ontario. That’s not what we’re talking about. We’re talking about Simon and camp.
Simon: Sounds like fun. I want to go. But I don’t want to go in a canoe, because the Titanic made me scared of boats.
Ike: But not TRAINS!
Ike: “Mommy, you are NOT the boss! You’re the queen.”
I can live with that. 🙂

Hilarious and cute. What is it with 4 and 5 year olds hitting their heads on tables?

Ike always makes me think he should be living in 100 Acre Wood with all those other sweet and wonderful characters.

This makes me wish I could go back and snuggle my boy when he was tiny. Now he’s a head taller than me (but at least he still says funny things to make me laugh).

It’s frightening how fast mine are growing. My husband is 6’3″ and they’re built the same, so I’m going to feel really short soon!

Oh my god, you have the most amazing kid IN THE WORLD – the mummy technicality is total genius!
I don’t have kids yet, but it’s stuff like this that I’m looking forward to experiencing 🙂

The fun/funny/heartwarming moments do make the bad days easier to handle!

I bet! I’m sure there are days when the “mummy” technicality is the last thing you need!
