Ben is my sweet, quirky, imaginative child. He says things that make me laugh all the time. I'm sharing these because I'm his Mom and that's what us Moms do. This blog is also my journal to my kids, so sometimes you will have to deal with silly sappy posts like this one.
The other day he came up to me very frustrated holding his superman cape and said, "My cape won't sit still." Obviously, meaning that it kept falling off. He has a way with words.
He will often say to me, "Mom, mom, mom, I have something important to say." When I ask what, he will say "um, um, um". Well, the other day he added a phrase and said, "I may be quiet, but I have something important to say." The poor kid has already learned between his sister and myself, he can't get a word in edge wise.
We were watching Olivia a few days ago. We like this cartoon. It's based off of the books which are some of our favorites(thanks aunt Pam for buying them for us). Olivia is a pig who is many things. In the episode we watched, she was an artist. She finished her painting and said, "I think I'm done with my blue period."
Obviously, an adult joke as a 3 year old doesn't know about a painters blue period.
Today, Emily insisted on painting when she got home from school. So, I got the kids set up at the island and off they went. Ben finished his and I asked him if he wanted another piece of paper. To which he replied: "No, I think I'm done with my yellow period."
