It’s funny when they say what goes around comes around and that’s been happening with me and Re. My mother always used to say that I talked too much for my own good and “you just wait till you have kids of your own,” etc, etc. Now Re is totally upstaging me in the vocabulary department with his comebacks and witticisms and the result is a series of wtf moments. Some nuggets:
Me: Here, drink this milkshake. You will be stronger.
Re: I can be stronger with water also.
Don’t shout mamma. Othewise I will cancel you.
What happened here, I point to a red bump on his skin.
Yesssturday when I was going in the snow no, a purple rabbit bit me here.
Me (at spa): I will have a pedicure.
Boy: And I will have nail polish.
I really don’t want to take a bath.
It’s holiday time.

But you will distract me, I said.
No, I will not distruck you.
Boy and I went up a mall.
Boy hugged a mannequin.
Mannequin had a great fall.
Boy and I not going to mall again.

Me: what a mess!
Boy: don’t chubble me now. I’m just cleanupping everything.
Boy: I’m a good boy no?
Me: Yes. And I’m a good girl no?
Boy: No you are a good boy also.
Re: Mamma, boys don’t know. Ony girls know.
Me(saying): Of course not, you know too.
Me (thinking): That’s a great pick-up line.
