Remember that old saying, "Kid's say the darnedest things."? Well, it rings true in my house just about every single day. Some of the conversations that I have with Joey just crack me up. Here's one from last night:
Joey and I went over to Walmart to pick up his new bed. He was excited, and loved that it came in a BIG BOX! We got home at about 5:30. Ron had already fed the babies and had a sandwich waiting for Joey. Ron had to go out to do an errand with my mom, so it was just me and the kiddos hanging out before the much-anticipated bath/bedtime hour. At about 5:45 Joey came in from playing with bubbles on the patio and held this conversation with me:
Joey: "I all done playin' Mom. I go nigh-night now."
Me: "You're ready to go nigh-night already?"
Joey: "Yes, I all done playin'. I very tired."
Me: "Well, OK. Do you want to eat your sandwich first?"
Joey: "Um... No thank you. I go nigh-night." (starts heading down the hallway.)
Me: (perplexed, but kinda excited at the idea of a 5:45 bedtime, I started following him.)
Joey: (really excited, headed towards his room) "I go nigh-night my new big boy bed!"
Me: "Oooooh.... no, it's not ready yet Joey. Mommy has to put it together so you can sleep in it tomorrow."
Joey: "My new bed not in my room?"
Me: "No. It's not in your room yet. It will be tomorrow."
Joey: (walks into his room to make sure I'm not lying, then turns around when he sees his crib is still there.)
Me: "Do you still want to go nigh-night?"
Joey: "Um. No thank you. I eat now. I not tired more."
