1. Well Meaning Lady at the Grocery: Is he yours, or is he adopted?
Me: He's mine because he's adopted.
2. Trooper, when he thought his dad had been in the bathroom for too long: Dad? Do you need help?
3. Trooper: Mom, can I listen to songs?
Trooper: But not yet. I need to pick up my toys, I gotta concentrate.
4. Trooper: I bumped my head!
Me: Here, I'll rub your leg. Does that feel better?
Trooper: No, rub my head.
I rub his head.
Trooper: Thanks, Mom, I feel fresh.
5. Trooper has two new Trooperisms, the first being an extremely annoying 'Minion' laugh that sounds more like a goat than a Minion, and the second being 'Aye, aye, Captain!'. He'd been saying 'Aye, aye, Captain' appropriately for a couple of days before he asked me what it meant. It was funny to me because I knew he understood what the phrase meant, but he didn't know what 'Aye' meant. He often asks me to define words, and sometimes it's a real challenge because like him, I know how to use them in language, but I might not be able to give a good definition. Of course now it's past my bedtime and I can't think of a good example, but I'm sure as soon as I crawl into bed I'll think of several. Anyway, you all have a good week. Stay warm!
