There are always emails going around that have cute quotes from little kids. I think I got one today about “butt dust” or something. Anyway… you know what I’m talking about. Just like Bill Cosby’s “Kids Say the Darndest Things,” we get such joy out of a child’s misunderstanding of the world.
We’ve been trying hard to teach Mason how to tell time. Well, that might be a little lofty. Mostly we’ve been trying to teach her that she cannot get out of bed in the morning until she sees a 6 in the first spot on her clock. I thought that she would try to get around this rule by saying she saw a 6 at 5:56 or getting other numbers confused. But she quickly learned this rule, and like clockwork, she has been coming up to our room at 6:01 on the dot for the past few days.
I was really proud of her this morning because I was up with Cooper at 5am, and she still did not get out of bed. She finally came out of her room after 6am. When I told her how proud I was, she said “The 6 took a long time today, Mommy.” It cracked me up. I can just imagine her lying in bed watching the clock and waiting for the 6. So that’s my “kid-ism” for the day.
On a similar note, Cooper has learned a new phrase. “Uh oh.” He loves to say this so much, he has started the dropping game just so he can say “Uh oh” every time. Drop a sippy cup – “Uh oh.” Drop a piece of waffle – “Uh oh.” Drop a princess – “Uh oh.” It’s pretty darn cute. (Except for the fact that my back is aching with all the picking up I’ve been doing!)
