Kidisms, Part 1

BILL: Tomorrow is Mother’s Day – Mommy’s day!

CAELAN: No, it’s MY day.

BILL: Everyday is your day.

Caelan crumples up his paper kids’ menu at a restaurant, then looks at it with concern.

CAELAN: Uh oh, what happened??

BILL: You happened, dude.

— — — — — — —

CAELAN [pointing in excitement]: It’s a dinosaur!

SARAH [looking at the corner of the kitchen where he’s pointing and no dinosaurs are present]: Where??

CAELAN [pointing again, in a low voice]: Right there. It’s looking at Mommy.

Caelan is eating green beans at dinner.

BILL: Did you chew and swallow?

SARAH: You look like you’re working on it.

[Bill stares at Caelan who continues to chew.]

CAELAN [loudly and seriously]: I working on it!!

— — — — — — —

Bill hands Caelan a pancake at breakfast. Caelan gazes lovingly at it…

CAELAN: It’s beautiful!

— — — — — — —

Listening to music on Bill’s  phone…

BILL: Do you like it?

CAELAN: Beautiful. It’s beautiful music.

Caelan is studying the freckle on my forehead with his concerned eyebrows.

CAELAN: I want to take it off. [He tries to pinch the freckle.] Want to throw it in the trash. It’s trash.

(After much conversation about why my freckle isn’t trash, he now says “It’s part of Mommy.”)


One Response to Kidisms, Part 1

    Sarah – many, many years ago there was a TV program called “kids say the darndest things”. It originally was hosted by Art Linkletter and then years later Bill Cosby revived it for a while. In light of your most recent post, if you haven’t ever seen it you should look around – maybe on youtube and take a look.

    Listening to kids learning to talk and going through their thought process is fascinating and hysterical! Thanks for sharing – Love, Mom
