No Bias, No Bull

August 30th, 2009

Kenny is very observant.   He is also very chatty.   And he asks a lot of questions.   Example:

“Mommy, why aren’t you turning right on red?   You know you can if you want to.”

He is a tenacious negotiator:

Kenny: “Mommy, can I have a cookie for breakfast?”   Me: “No.”  Kenny: “A half?”   Me: “Nope.”   Kenny:   “Maybe one bite?”   Me:  “No, Kenny.”   Kenny:  “Then can I watch a TV show instead?”

He says whatever he’s thinking, lacking that social filter of what is  appropriate conversation:

Kenny: “Mommy?   How did your boobies get so small?”   Me: “There isn’t any milk for Cooper in them anymore.”   Kenny: “You should really get some more milk in there.”

And he definitely has an opinion:

(after a guy in a pickup truck honks and waves at me in the Home Depot parking lot) Kenny: “Why did that guy honk at you?”   Me: “Maybe he thinks I’m pretty.”   Kenny: “You’re not pretty, Mama!   You’re not wearing any lipstick!”   Me, putting some lipstick on: “How ’bout now?”   Kenny: “Yeah.   That’s better.”

    I was digging through pictures a couple weeks ago and found ones from about 5 years ago when I was a good 40 lbs thinner….

    My daughter asked who that was in the picture.
    I said, “That’s ME!”

    She said, “Mom, you have NEVER looked like that!”

    I wallowed in a tub of Ben & Jerry’s!

    How funny! I love reading the dialogue of children. When I taught elementary, students would notice every little thing. (e.g. “Why do you have a band-aid on your toe?”)

    Oh dear! I see what I have in store for me – I’ll enjoy my son’s limited vocabulary while it lasts – I’m sure I’m in for it!
