Oh My Darlin', Oh My Darlin'...

One weekend morning, as I was in the kitchen doing dishes scrubbing the floor playing on my laptop, Baby (age 4) entered and started asking me for something to eat.  (Is it like this in your Trenches?  If I happen to be anywhere near the vicinity of the kitchen, then it's a free-for-all:  "Can I have this?"  "Will you make me this?"  "I'm huuuuungry!"  "I'm soooooo thirsty." etc etc etc.  Thus my pathological avoidance of the kitchen.)

So he wanted a brownie (at 10 a.m.)  The answer was no.  Then he wanted a Christmas cookie.  The answer, again, was no. 

Then he wanted a "valentime". 

Huh?

"Mom, so can I have one?  Can I?  They gots nutrition, right?  You said they did."

"Bud, what do you mean, silly?  It's not Valentine's Day.  It's Christmas."

"You know - a valentime!  I want one."

(Somewhat kinda paying attention; but mostly not) "Honey, Valentine's Day is in February.  Besides, you can't EAT a Valentine.  I have no idea what you're talking about."

"One of 'dose 'fings!  You know, dat you peel that skin off?"

Awwwwww!

The grocery store closest to my house carries "Cuties" Clementines this time of year and we devour at least sack a week.

I firmly believe Baby gets a Cutie just for being so gosh darn cute!

Huge hit in our house, too. And fabulously on sale this year - for some reason I remember going broke last year buying them.

Eat up!!!!

OH I love it - too cute. I love speech blunders - my daughter told me the other day that she slipped on our "hardworking" floors instead of "hardwood floors." Love it, love it...

HA! Because we have the exact same conversation in this house on a daily basis, I thought he was saying "vitamin." I just bought a box of Clementines today because they finally went on sale this week. My son insists that they are peaches. What in the world? I tried to correct him, but he just got angry. He's so confused....

I'm taking your advice and staying out of the kitchen. Smart.
