Muhver Day: My Kid Just Said… #4

Posted by on May 14th, 2012, under "MY KID JUST SAID..."

“Say Happy Muhver Day!”
-Lucas
(2012, almost 3 years old)
 

Being literal is not the same as being literate, but it’s funny.

Facepalm. He repeated exactly what I just whispered to him. His smile was sooooo big tho! So was hers. Precious.

Even though he chewed it up a bit, I was proud he got out the word “Mother’s” because he calls her Mommy. And his inclusion of my instruction to “Say” was quite simply hilarious and reminded me of all the amazing verbatim FAILs I’ve seen on the interwebs.

Happy day after Mother’s Day, folks!

    Lol I know the feeling. Though he’s really good with sentiments like the above, his repeating after me the rule he broke after a time out can get a little fuzzy…

    My husband spent two days cutting off my 3-year-old who kept trying to tell me what she was giving me for Mother’s Day. :)

      Ha ha ha! YES!!! We put a ban on telling the boys about any surprises or gifts. The secret is just too irresistible to contain. I’ve done the loud interruptions, the coughs, the sudden singing, all to cut off a gift-giving security leak.

    Not sure how much more cuteness I can handle from that kid..He is too much!

  4. “I can’t tell you what we got you, but I’ll give you a hint: it goes on your wrist, and it tells time!” – my sister when she was… sixish (before I was born) on Father’s Day :)

    I was awoken by my 2 year old daughter on Mother’s Day telling me “Happy Birthday!” repeatedly. That’s what it sounded like anyway. She was so proud. =)

  6. My 1 1/2 year old son has been told to say “bye-bye” so often he has started leaving the room with, “Say bye-bye!” and waving.

    • Andy says:

      LOL! I love it! So cute. Video it and 30 years from now you’ll search the Internet for me just to thank me for telling you to do so, if you haven’t already. ;)

    Awww I love it. My tot just turned 2 in May and she’s finally talking! I knew I should’ve been careful about wanting it to happen because I’m afraid what’s going to come out next, but it’s always followed by a beaming smile of shock and pride.

    • Andy says:

      I know EXACTLY what you mean! ESPECIALLY in public, because I can hear pretty much anything without a wince, but other people? I get conscientious for their feelings. Your stomach drops faster than a bullet flies out of a gun when you hear your toddler shout, “Wook at da giant wady in da motor chair!” Ugh.

    I tried to get my 2 year old son to say Happy Father’s day to my husband. He said “Pee Fart Day”. Eh, close enough. :)

  9. The recent comment popped into my inbox just the day after my toddler bedded me for just one more block of chocolate…..or as he says…

    “More cock? Mommy? Cock? Mommy? Cock please??”

    I only giggle a little.

    Someone had farted. My 21 month old daughter responds with “Ewwwwww!” My 4.5 year old son laughs and tells his sister, “Say Ewwwwww again!”. So she blurts out, “ewwwwww again!”
