Phrases of the week

Imagine these repeated over and over within a single "conversation":

"Mommy? A Dragonfly has strong jaws."
"Mommy! No Dogs! Say 'No dogs', Mommy!"
"Mommy, dogs can bited me."
"Duck... duck... goose!"
"I love you." (especially if he knows he just did something wrong or inappropriate.)
"Mommy, I have fun."
"My school at the farm!" (It isn't. Andy's school is a farm.)
"Where my school go?"
"Mommy? Mommy? MOMMY?... I'm being quiet!"
"No Mr. Shelby today. We stopped that."
"Mommy, we don't talk to wolves."
"Where's Grandma, Mommy?"
"Mommy? Mommy, it says WAAAAAh-Waaaaaah." (Andy: "No, Joey! Wa-wa!")

And for the sound-only phrases (see if you can figure out what words they come from):

And it beats the silence by a long shot.

"And it beats the silence by a long shot."

AMEN to that! :-)

Joanne said...

Amen, indeed. I was just telling a fellow mom today that someday - someday! - my son is going to call me Mommy and I am going to fall out of my seat. I can't wait!

It totally beats the silence, but the next time someone tells me, "Mommy, say XXXX..." I may lose it entirely. :)
