Aaron is giving Jona a hug; “Don’t squeeze me daddy, I’m not squeezy applesauce!”
I have no idea why, but when Jona meets someone new he likes to announce his footwear. He’ll say “Sandals today!” or “New shoes again!” (even if they’re not new shoes). I can appreciate the enthusiasm, I'm quite a shoe gal myself.
Lately when Jona wants to do something, he’ll say “Hey, I have a really good idea…”
We had a conversation about strangers after having a bizarre encounter with an overly-friendly neighbor.
- Jona: “I’m not going to talk to strangers.”
- Me: “Yes, that’s good.”
- Jona: “Just girls". And, it begins.
I bought Jona a new toothbrush and when he noticed, he said “New toothbrush?” I said it was. Excitedly, he goes, “That’s what I’m talking about!!”
Jona has been obsessed with baseball, running the bases, and “sliding” lately. He had a blister on his foot and after running “the bases” (our living room) and sliding, he cried “ow!” in pain. I told him to maybe take a break from sliding for a while so his blister can heal. He goes, “Well, Salvy [his favorite Royals player, Salvador Perez] still slides if he’s hurt.” Baffled, I tell him, “Um, Salvy gets paid a lot of money to do that buddy.”
Me: “Jona, would you put your laundry in the basket?” Jona: “Sure! I’d love to!” (If only that enthusiasm would last…)
“It sure is cold in here,” says Jona after coming in from outside.
Me: “Jona, do you want to help daddy with the yard work when we get home?” Jona: “Yes! Things are looking up!”
I'd love to hear the funny things your kids (or the kids in your life) are saying. Share with me in the comments!
