In a toddler nutshell

September 17, 2010

My son has been listening to his parents. The assessment:

“Mama talks and talks and talks,
and my daddy, he just whistles.”

I’m linking up to Making Things Up for six word friday, where the word of the day is listen.

    Love it! No better character assessor (or should that read assassinator?? than your own child 🙂

    Mommy says, “We’ll see.” Daddy says,
    “Go for it!” Such is life.

    And that, my dear, is why
    Mama and Daddy get along fine. 😉

    Kids say the darnedest things. But they are usually right.

    I agree with 2bdancing – kids say the darnedest things – with an acute accuracy!

    Funny. I used to talk and talk, until I had a blog! My son said tonight that he thinks I should be a lion for Halloween. My husband asked what he should be. Mr. B said, “The little boy who’s afraid of the lion.” WTF?

      Now THAT is hysterical, Jana.

      And I agree with Melissa…that is why you get along fine, I’m sure.

      Loved this!

    LOL. This cracked me up. They are such delightful souls aren’t they? Love the honesty and innocence in their remarks.
