What tha?

Where did she... how did she learn how to do this? Emma... sneaky little booger! *A-nna!* (said ala Jerry Seinfeld "New-man!")

"Oh good , honey... you did great! You ate half of your sandwich, good job buddy!" *wonders to self how she ate that quickly, but ooooo-k, she must have been hungry*

*As I go to put the rest of her lunch in a baggie, I found the turkey and provolone the little stinker had meticulously placed under the other part of her sandwich* "Ohhhhh, you're good kid... you're good!"

Two years old and already hiding food. the force is strong with this one.
Recent Emma-isms and their translations:

"Keep yo pans on!"
- Keep your pants on!, she said to me when I told her to stop making a mess at the dinner table

"I did no!"
- I said no

"Do till la me, momma?"
- You still love me , momma?, out of the blue during lunch :D Haha, I guess it never hurts to ask, especially after telling your mom to keep her pants on.

" Peeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeease?" - *sigh* Pleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeease?, at snack time

"Do tink tha's bunny?"
- You think that's funny? , she said to Anna who was smirking at her after Emma yelled at her for something. Anna starting laughing and giggling, and while pointing at moi she yelled, "She got that FROM YOU!"

Anna-ism, while we are eating at the Pizza Ranch... which is a pizza place that is decorated all in Western things like lanterns and horseshoes:

"Mom, I think because this place is decorated in old cowboy stuff we don't have to worry about talking with our mouths full."

Here is another hard lesson learned... be very careful what you say around your kids. One little slip up, one bad word...

One day I was calling a member of John's family a jerk- but used a different word. Yup a baaaaad one.

Anna said, "Oooooh, mom said a bad word! She said A-$-$-H-@-L-E!"

John stopped dead in his tracks, but neither of us could help but try to hide our laughter after about a second of shock.

I told John at least she spelled it right. I wasn't going to share this, but you guys already know that there isn't much I won't share... even if it makes me look REALLY bad.

I know, I'm a horrible parent. I get it. ;)

Hehehe, I love it! :) These are great Emma-isms and Anna-isms! Our Emma surprised me last night rocking in the chair singing way more of Rock A Bye Baby than what I thought she knew, kids are so amazing! :)

You guys have two very smart little cookies on your hands. Way to go, could they be chips off the old blocks, or apple(s) doesn't fall far from the trees. Intelligent life forms, live here? Hey what more could you ask for.
There's gonna be lots of laughs in your home. I take that back, the laughter must be non stop.
Love you,

Just dropping by and thought I would tell you that I enjoyed reading about the things your kids say. I have two that always surprise by saying one thing or another!

The Mommy Translation must kick in right after giving birth, huh? :) I had lunch with my cousin and godson yesterday (he's 3) and every time he said something I was like, "Huh?!" She had to translate...and it's always hysterical! I'm like, "Oh, I get it!" Hee...always love reading the -isms! :)

Maybe I should be glad that Baby Bug isn't really talking yet! LOL!

Oh those are some fun shares! You know it's just nice to know you're not the only one out there who deals with these parenting realities. ;)


maggie said...

LOL. Those are great. Nice thing about a blog is it's like a memory book. I wish I remember some of the cute stuff the kids use to say.

I had to ask my sister if when Ivy goes to school she will be in trouble for saying "crap" because I let her say it all of the time. My sis first looked at me like I was crazy and then said, "Um, crap is a bad word and you won't let her say butt? I guess that is kind of funny.

Dude, I've got you beat on worst Mother, Leila's third word was the f-bomb and she said it right in front of my Jewish grandmother from Long Island. You've never seen someone written out of the will that quickly.

Kids are so smart. I don't know how they do it.

Jenny Ryan said...

And see, this is why I was such a bad classroom teacher.

When my students would respond to me with their equivalents of "Hey, keep your pants on, Mrs. Ryan," I thought it was awesomely hysterical, and would burst out laughing.

The Administrative Powers That Be took a dim view of my being amused by my students rather than being a strict disciplinarian-but what 5'2" female middle school teacher is actually capable of scaring their students enough into behaving? Not I.

However, this very same characteristic is what makes me such an awesome one-on-one tutor, so it all worked out in the end.

Hiding the food. I hated steak when I was five or so, I would chew it up and stuff it in my cheeks behind my teeth. Then I would excuse myself to go "to the bathroom".

They never caught on. I love steak now, maybe it was the cooking back then LOL. said...

Very cute kidisms, as I call them. "Do you still love me?" Awww! The cowboy comment is too funny. I could see how she'd think that.

Daddy Forever said...

Kids can be sneaky. My little one doesn't even bother hiding her unfinish food. She just gets out of her high chair and leave. We get no respect.
