Some cute conversations with a very funny little man

September 29, 2010 at 12:10 am (Uncategorized)

Me: Do you like the chili Andikpeme?

A: It is awesome!

Me (shocked that he knows that word): I’m glad you like it

A: It is the bestest soup ever! You did a really good job mommy!

(Andikpeme takes “breaks” at the bottom of our main staircase when he is upset or overstimulated)

A: (In a very quiet, respectful voice) Excuse me, excuse me?

Daddy: Yes A.?

A: I think I farted

(Daddy and the kids were reading a book and labeling some of the animals)

Daddy: Touch the wooly lamb

A: Touch the wooly man

4) Shortly after we came home I decided to watch the TV show, “A Baby Story” with A. to explain the role/relationship of his first family and our family. I knew that he remembered lots from his past, but wasn’t sure how he was processing it all because of the communication difficulties. Here is a conversation between A. and daddy months later….

Daddy: “Mommy will go to the hospital to have the baby and you and Ekaete will stay at grandma and grandpa’s until the baby is here.”

A: “Oh! I want to watch her on the TVs daddy!”

5) Both kids were sitting on daddy’s lap and Ekaete was staring at Andikpeme

A: (In a Brooklyn accent) “What? Ekaete, I love you! What?? You don’t love me anymore???”

Ekaete continues to stare blankly at her brother 🙂 Sometimes he says the strangest things!

6) Sitting down for dinner….

Me to Brendan: “Is there more milk downstairs?”

Brendan: “Yeah, I can go it for you in a minute”

Me: “No, that’s fine…I’ll get it.”

Andikpeme: “No mommy! Let daddy do it.”

(I start thinking about how sweet it is that little boy wants to take care of me and let me sit down)

Andikpeme: “You have to share, mom. It’s nice to share with daddy.”

(Nope, he is looking out for daddy’s best interest here. Apparently I am a really selfish person!)


Andikpeme: Why does daddy give me many sweets?

Me: I don’t know. Because you are a good boy and he loves you.

Andikpeme: That’s silly. (Chuckles to himself). That’s a goose!

(We must have called him a silly goose at some point and he’s taken the saying to another level!)

In case you didn’t notice, most of these conversations took place during meal times. I am so sad for others when I find out that they do not sit down at the table and share daily meals together with their family. Honestly, we have so many great conversations around the table (many that leave us crying of laughter), I cannot imagine our family without them.

This picture was just thrown in because it's cute and funny like our little man!

    What great stories! These are the kind of stories your kids will love to hear again and again when they a little older. Speaking of growing up, I can’t believe how big A is getting!! Thanks for sharing the picture.

    What a card! If we ever get Eden and C together again, I can’t imagine what they’ll come up with together, LOL!

    We are also a sit-down for dinner family and I love the exchanges during that time.

    Your kids are hilarious…why do ALL boys think farting is so funny??
