My Kid Just Said… #36

“Wisten wisten. Okay. I have an agweement wiv you. Wisten. If I eat one two bites and you build all my toys den we can wets pway and I get a cookie. Okay? Okay!” [Walks away]
(2013, 4.5 years old)

He sounded like a big league negotiator. There was no room for argument or comment or really even to voice agreement; my youngest son was already walking away to go eat his one two bites, thusly sealing the “agweement.”

It was Christmas morning, so I knew my place. I’m a dad. I’m there to tear through jungles of cardboard with my bare hands, wrestle twisty ties, endlessly assemble and install batteries and then play until I drop. And I love it. Do what you love and you’ll never work a day in your life, as they say.

That doesn’t mean I didn’t take one friggin seriously merry nap later.

    My hubby is learning that very thing….he is the cardboard, twisty tie wrestler and he too played until he passed out before dinner. I love Christmas!

    I love this story. I raised four sons an then adopted another son. I wouldn’t have missed these days for anything in the world. Including the year we had to put the Christmas tree in the playpen to keep my very active 9 month old twins away from it. 🙂

    Our 3.5 year old son received a nerf gun for christmas and my husband and his brother (our sons uncle) spent as much time playing with it and setting up targets as our child did. And so little boys grow into big boys.

    Speaking of Nerg guns….my mom is amazing and knows my husband is my big kid right now (we are working on little ones), so she got ALL the men in my life tiny Nerf guns for stocking stuffers!!! We had an all out mini Nerf war!!
    So fun on Christmas night!!
