You’ve heard it before, “kids say the darnedest things.” But, you really don’t live it until you actual have children of your own. Lately, I’ve had a laundry list of things my three year-old is just busting out with. Sometimes they are funny, sometimes embarrassing, and other times they are just downright rude to the point that I wish she was still in utero.
Just this morning, she told me she was going to have a birthday party for her doll fully equipped with cake, party hats, and wine. I almost spit out my coffee! I asked wine, you’re going to have wine at your party? She looked at me as if I was the one who said something crazy. She simply said yes and then went on to ask if I like wine. Well, duh! That’s like asking a squirrel if he likes nuts. Then there’s the conversation about show and tell where she told me she wanted to bring her sister as her toy. As cute as that would be, I had to say no. After going through a few things in her playroom, she settled on her “Furr Real” pet dog. We’ll see how that goes.
As far as embarrassing goes, well, kids are always saying something that could fall under that category. My daughter will talk about her poop and boogers like any other child. And as I’ve told you all before, she enjoys calling people farm animals. Yes, I am still “Mommy Cow.”
Her latest phrase falls under embarrassing, as well as downright rude. With her little Minnie Mouse voice and angelic eyes she’ll say goodbye to you in one breath and then in the next she’ll tell you she doesn’t like you and to go away…still in her sweet and innocent voice…and then laugh. I don’t know where on earth she picked that up, but it’s getting annoying. She even said it to the priest! After saying goodbye to him, we walked away and she said it! Luckily we were far enough away that he didn’t hear. Granted there are times when I want to tell people to go away because I don’t like them, but I don’t do it. At least not so they can hear it! I’m really hoping this is a phase. I really want to tell her to say bye bye to this little saying because mommy doesn’t like it and wishes it would go away! Stay tuned!
