I love hearing and telling funny things kids say. We’ve all heard this line a million times- they grow up so fast- well, nothing could be more true. Like it or not- that’s the way it is. So, let’s remember the goods times, baby pictures and clever lines that come out of the mouths of our babes (because let’s face it my memory is like that of a goldfish) and make sure the words get preserved forever.
Here’s a good one from this week at our house. C was walking around without his shirt on, carrying Pierre the cat.
Rubbing Pierre back and forth across his chest he asked the cat, “Pierre- do you like my body??”
Fast forward a few years and after the release of the newest Star Wars movie, The Force Awakens, this very same cat and boy combo were found to be cuddling on the floor. I happily watched and listening I overheard C say, “Pierre, you’re my Chewbacca.”
I was making lunches for the kids to take to school today when I asked my 8 year old daughter which kind of cookies she would like in her lunch.
She pointed to the Rainbow Chip bag and replied enthusiastically, “Oh, this kind please, I had them in my lunch yesterday and they were delightful… -pause-… they changed my life!”
