My Kid Just Said… #15

Posted by , under "MY KID JUST SAID..."

“You’re the best mama ever.”
(2012, 2.5 years old)

Gentleman Baby tries on shoes.

He was looking right at me. I guess he’s right. I’m great at breastfeeding…

About 2 minutes later he said “Dada” and that was nice while it lasted.

    My 2.5 year old does that too. So does my 4 year old when he gets really excited about something. lol

  2. Lilly (also 2.5) does this to my husband a lot. But his pride takes over and he responds with “I’m not Mommy”. He just likes to hear his name.

    Also, that photo is f’ing adorable. Seriously, hand him juice in a brandy glass and you have one of the most epic toddler boy photos ever.

    Get used to it. My boy is 8 and I officially answer to: “Mama, I mean, Dada…”

    You can retaliate later in life by naming every other family member before you land on his name…

      My dad was infamous for this. Between me and my two brothers, it almost always took him three tries to get the right name for who he wanted to call, regardless of which of us it was.

      The worst was when I was visiting (years after I moved out, youngest brother was still at home), and he tried to get me via “Brother1…Brother2…George…Chris!”

      I looked at him stunned. “Dad….George is the *dog*!”

    My kids are homeschooled by their Grandma so they spend most of the day with her. When they’re at home my boys (ages 6 & 7) say “Grandma, actually Mama” or “Grandma, actually Dada” all the time…it makes for a good laugh!

    For some reason my son (1-1/2) says “mama” all sweet and innocent-like, which I love, but when he says “dada” he says it with such force and determination. Says it like that every time too. Cracks us up.

    Since we’re on the topic of talking….wh do kids say certain things w/ accents or is this just my son? He sounds english when he says “ball” and southern when he says “bye-bye”.

    My husband Edmond picked our kids’ names, and one of them is a variation on his name (Raymond). So I get confused….

    Mommy: Edmond, come here I need to change your diaper!

    Raymond high tails it out of sigh.

    Edmond: Hm, I didn’t know you were into that…
