Children think they know.. but they have noooo idea!

What I learned from my kid..

There are a few things that I have learned from Dylan in 4 1/2 years..

  • If you change their diaper, they will poop as soon as you walk away
  • If you clean up the toys, there will be twice as many toys on the floor the next time you come into the room
  • As soon as they take a bath, they will want to eat spaghetti
  • As soon as they are in bed, they want a snack

My mom is probably laughing right now and chanting “I told you so!

     Here are a few things my mom learned from me.. in 18 years..

  • If you buy something new; whether it be a car or a couch, I will puke on it (ha ha)
  • Put sunscreen on the kid! 😉
  • Lipstick does not come out off couch cushions
  • When adult says “NO”, wild teenager hears “YES” (ha ha ha)

In the end, valuable lessons are learned, tears are shed, probably by both mom and child, and hugs are given.

Dylan has taught me some of the most important lessons in my life (He is a pretty smart 4-year-old)

  • Love is unconditional I still get hugs and kisses and cuddled after his timeout
  • Dinosaurs buried themselves in the dirt
  • Love comes in all forms “Mom, I got something for you cause I love you. It was in my nose”
  • Sometimes sleeping with a stuffed animal makes you feel better
  • Saying sorry takes a lot of effort, but has a huge effect
  • No one is going to love you more than your child does

Pretty good so far..  I am looking forwards to the many more years of lessons (or should I be worried?)

 I’d like to end by saying “Sorry for my teenage years, mom! I love you!” 🙂

If you leave the water running..

If you give a mouse a cookie, he’s going to ask for a glass of milk. When you give him the milk, he’ll probably ask for a straw..

I think that most everyone knows this story. Or a similar one.. If you give a moose a muffin, he’ll want jam to go with it.

Dylan requsted a bubble bath last night. I proceeded to fill the tub, and when i turned off the faucet Dylan insisted there wasn’t enough water. When I told him we didn’t want the tub to overflow, I immediatly saw the wheels turning in his head…

"Mom.. if the bath tub overflows, then the bathroom will flood"
Yes it will
"And  if the bathroom floods, our house with flood"
Thats right
"And if the house floods, we can't live in it anymore"
Sure can't
"Then we will be cavemen.. and have to live in our car."
Er...welll...
"And if we live in our car, we can drive our house"
uhh.. I guess
"But then we might get lost!"
ookkaaayy...
"So we don't want the bathtub to overflow. I don't wanna get lost."
Good thinking.
"Im always right mom."

Huh.. I just nodded and smiled.

4 year olds really do say some interesting things! And they don’t realize that sometimes we just want to start cracking up. But you don’t want it to seem like you are laughing at your child.. so you just have to nod and smile.

I really do enjoy listening to Dylan’s silly stories. I find myself asking the following, in order to keep the story going and to see what Dylan comes up with next:

"And then what happens?" 
"Is that possible?!"
"What did you do next?" 
And one of our favorites is: "Did he explode?"

 

I really should do a better job of writting down all the silly stories and phrases he says.. It would get a good laugh in a few years!

 

Hope everyone is having a good Friday the 13th 🙂
