Sometimes I love the things that come out of my four year old’s mouth.
He can be so sweet. And loving. I always tell people he will be my child that NEVER leaves me! He will go to college locally, find a wonderful woman and move down the block from us. This is all in my dreams of course. Doesn’t that sweet smile just scream “I will never leave you mom”!
Deep down he is a mama’s boy at heart. He loves to be my cuddle buddy and every night he says, “Momma, can we cuddle on the couch?” If that doesn’t make your heart skip a beat I don’t know what will.
He’s funny. Always has been. Since the time he was wee-big he has been cracking us up with his funny faces and hilarious personality. He seems to constantly be doing humorous things and then he will say, “Was that funny mom?”Such a people pleaser he is!
He is also my most challenging child. Not sure if it’s just his age or the fact that he is the first born, but he definitely has the stubborn personality inherited by yours truly. He’s defiant. Hard headed. And has a very hard time listening lately.
He’s the “baby” of the family and when he doesn’t get his way. Watch out. He is not exactly understanding.
Over Christmas break we watched one of my favorite holiday movies of all time – “Christmas Vacation”. Little did I remember it having so much profanity. Luckily the boys were too busy playing with all their new great gifts & I assumed they weren’t paying much attention.
That is until 2 nights ago. When my loving, sweet, funny, stubborn, hard-headed mommy’s boy yelled, “Hey mom, the sh*tters full!”
And this would be one of those times that I was thankful we weren’t in public because the ONLY thing worse than him reciting that line from the movie would have been him reciting that line from the movie in public. At church. Or Pre-k.
Like any good mom, I laughed so hard I almost peed my pants (I couldn’t help myself). Then I politely (or not so politely) explained to him that we do not use that kind of language in this house.
