I figured it was time for a post dedicated to my silly boy. He makes me laugh daily with the things he says–his perspective on the world is so funny. I want to be able to remember what he says at the stage of life he’s in now.
Whenever T Swift’s “Shake it Off” comes on the radio, Joshua says, “That’s ‘Sick Beats’ song!” And when she gets to the part where she says, “You could have been getting down to this. Sick. Beat!” Joshua yells, “SICK BEAT!” at the top of his lungs.
Anytime I say stub my toe, gasp in pain, etc. “You do mommy? Bonk you toe? That is too bad.”
If I tell him he can’t do something he wants to do, like watch a show or have a treat he says, “Yeah, mommy. You tell me yes.”
Joshua points to my wedding ring. “That’s like belt. For finger.”
When Dustin puts him to bed, he usually sings “I am a Child of God” to him along with “Rock-a-bye Joshua.” If Joshua isn’t ready for Dustin to leave yet he’ll say, “No, no, no!” Then count on his fingers, “I need one…two…three more Rock-a-bye Joshuas.”
Often, Joshua will take his socks off and put them on his hands and very proudly tell me, “Look, mommy, look! I made mittens!”
He likes to quote Go Dog, Go. “Hello! Hello! Wike hat? Do not wike it! Good-bye! Good-bye!”
He has a plastic Easter egg that he pretends a duck hatches out of all the time. “Wook, mommy! Wittle baby duckwing! It’s so cute! You hold it? I put it here?”
