3 year-old wisdom
"People with mustaches on their heads and sound-makers don't have names."
"The gymnastics place is made of brick so that dragons can't burn it down."
"Baby L's bones are moving."
"Will you miss me? My brain doesn't think so but I do."
"I wanted you to read when it was dark over in Australia!"
"I want to do no fun stuff (said upon waking up from a nap grumpy)."
"Mommy, my tongue is not like yours. Because mine has milk spots (he'd just taken a drink)."
I said something to Baby L and ended with, "eh?" Dude: "She's not A! I'm A. I have two A's in my name, but one belongs to the ABC's. The other belongs to me!"
"Mommy, [Baby G] put a BOBCAT in this little thing and now it's stuck in there!"
"Mommy, changing Ferbys into boys? That really happens!"
"[Baby L] has a big fat tongue."
Sitting next to me on the couch, he very abruptly leaned forward and grabbed his foot with a look of pure horror. "MOM! What is that (pointing at his ankle)?!?!" Me: "It's your ankle bud." Dude: "Do you have one too?!"
Dude: "[Baby G], you have to stomp and roar like this to be a T-Rex." G: "Banana?" Dude: "No, [Baby G]. Monkeys eat bananas. Not T-Rexes ... You can be the banana monster?" Me: "[Dude], please come put on your pants." Dude: "But Moooommm, dinosaurs don't put on ANY clothes. People do! And I'm pretending I'm Stegosaurus Rex!"
Dude(sadly): "I don't have a trunk." Me: "Me neither." Dude: "You could wear an elephant hat! Then you'd have extra eyes too!!!"
Me: "I is for Ice Cream!" Dude: "Ice Cream that chameleons lick!" Me: "What?" Dude: "Yes. They have tongues. But not goats. Goats don't. They like me. Goats do. They kind of like me because they licked me at the zoo." Me: "Well, if they licked you, then don't they have tongues too?" Dude: "No. They just licked me with their mouths. No tongues. Chameleons have tongues."
Me (quizzing J for her science test): "What are 3 types of fossil fuels?" J: "Oil, and coal, and, um.... Dude: "PIZZA!!!"
