Just Say It

He Said Goat June 29, 2008

Jeremy: “Mommy, Daddy said goat”

Me: “Goat?”

Jeremy: “Yes, goat, Mommy”

It took me about 4 days to figure out what this meant. Jeremy, our 2 year old, has been talking since he was 9 months old. Most days I have to remind myself that he’s only two. I expect him to understand more than he should at his age because he has spoiled me with his outstanding vocabulary. So he said goat.

Every morning the little squirt wakes me up at 6:30. I go get him, change his diaper, and then we cuddle in my bed for about a half hour waiting for his big sister to wake up and come into my room. That’s when he started telling me my husband said “goat”. After about the 4th day of this, I stopped chuckling at him and I said, “Jeremy, Daddy is sleeping. He isn’t talking. What do you mean he said goat?”. Jeremy pointed at his face, got really quiet, and I just looked at them both completely puzzled.

Then it happened.

Rich snored.

“See, Mommy, he said goat!” ROFL!!!! Then Jeremy made this snore sound while saying the word goat. It was the funniest thing I’ve seen him do in awhile. I cracked up. Goat. ROFL!!

Kids are so fun. People congratulate us all the time on our pregnancy — see I told you I’m showing already. Sometimes I just give the best fearful look I can and say, “thank you, we’re about to be outnumbered”. Ha!! So I’m a little nervous. But I am told it is easier to go from 2 to 3 than it was going from 1 to 2. This remains to be seen. I’ll believe it when I see it. All of our lovlies will be under 5 years old. That is just a little scary.


Changing subject…

I still hate American Airlines incase you were wondering. I will never fly in their planes again. Ever. I don’t care if they gave me a free trip every single month for the next 20 years. I flew Delta when I went to Ohio. I had no problems. None.

I like the feel of the thinner cotton shirts Old Navy makes. Only problem is they get pinholes in them after about 2 times through the washer and dryer — on the gentle cycles. Waste of money. You’re better off spending $3.00 more for a nicer make at a department store. And, actually, WalMart makes tougher kids clothes than Macy’s for about half the price. You just have to watch for shrinkage. Buy a size bigger, let them air dry after about 10 minutes in the dryer, and you’re good to go.

My son loves to pretend to cut the grass. I’ll bet when he’s 15 he won’t like that it will become his chore.

My daughter loves Spiderman still. Girl has good taste. What can I say?

Alright. They want to go outside. Guess I better get offline. Happy Sunday.
