Not one day goes by where I am not corrected by one of my kids. Sometimes, they just suck the fun out of using lame puns or singing silly rhymes.
Me: "Hey, Sam the Man!"
Sam: "I am NOT Sam the Man! Just Sam!"
Me: "Hey, Sam-I-Am, want some green eggs and ham?"
Sam: "No. And I am just SAM!"
Me: "Nephi look! It's a fire truck!!"
Nephi: "No mom, that's the paramedics."
Me: "Why don't we take the bus today?"
Nephi: "It's called a shuttle, Mom."
Nephi: "Thomas is NOT a train! He is a tank engine!"
Me: "Sammy, you are such a good boy!"
Sam: "No, Mom. I'm just Sam."
The other day I was tickling the baby and giving him loves. I was talking nonsense to him, you know how you do, say anything in the sing-song voice and baby loves it! I was saying something like "Are you bunny? I think you might be a bunny! Or maybe your a turtle. Are you a turtle?" Baby coos. Sam hears me from the other room and comes in.
"Mommy, Jacob is a baby. Not a bunny. Not a turtle. He is a baby." Thanks, Sam for clearing that up, I was really confused, but now I am not.
-We got Nephi a toy gun for his birthday. He begged me to let him take it in to the grocery store with us. I told him he could but he couldn't fire it or point it at people. When we were checking out, the lady asked: "Wow! You sure have a big gun there!" Nephi replies: "No, it's not a gun, it's my M-16." (Apparently there's a difference...)
-A few months ago I took Nephi to an Air Force Base to pick up a few things. He was decked out in his Army camo gear and we stopped at the gas station to fuel up and get a treat. While checking out, the lady at the cash register said: "Well look at you!! What a handsome little Air Force guy!!" I thought Nephi was going to explode by the look on his face! He yelled out: "I am NOT Air Force guy!! I am ARMY guy!!!" Touche.
Kids are so much fun aren't they.
