The Things They Say
Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds was on the radio in my van. I didn’t tell the kids it was the Beatle’s, yet Reagan pipes up with, “ But in Grammy’s car, the Beatles say HELP! I need somebody.”
Nolan requests the Foo Fighters, because he likes when Dave Grohl, “sings fast.” Nolan really is great about picking out a tune and humming along even if he doesn’t know the words. I plan to foster that ability in the future.
While walking at the zoo and looking elsewhere, Reagan ran into a plant. She said, “Oops, I ran into the koala’s bears food; bamboo!”
Reagan counting: 12, 12 14, 15, twelve-teen, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 17, 18, 19, 17, 18, 19…. Bill: 20!!!!
For Christmas this year Reagan wants, “a dozen donuts and a bag of candy.”
While reading a Dora book, I asked Nolan a question and he answered, “I don’t know. I’m not the map.”
Mommy: Nolan, say eggs in Polish. Nolan: “eggs in Polish.”
Nolan calls construction cones “pinecones.”
Nolan, “Mommy apply your brakes! There is a red light ahead.”
Reagan peering in a case at the West Side Market, “Mommy, I see a piggy made out of meat!”
Mommy to Nolan: stay in your own yard. Nolan: “that sounds like a plan, Mom.”
While driving, Nolan came out with, “Damnit! These people need to learn how to drive!”
Reagan (in a very proud manner): "Guess what Nolan and I were doing while you were in the bathroom? Jumping over the couch, like the cow jumping over the moon!!!"
While Nolan was hugging me one morning he said, "I love you, you little furball!" Thanks, I think.
Nolan's new favorite word: Mischiegous. Used in a sentence, "In the movie Cars, the cars that push Mac off the road are very mischiegous and naughty!"
Driving by a construction site in the rain, Nolan said, “Since it is raining, the workers are not doing foundations today.”
Nolan: where’s Mailman Tom.
Me: at home having dinner with is family.
Nolan: Yeah, with mailman mommy.
Mommy: You make my heart proud.
