So ever since I got pregnant with Gabe and then started this blog, I've dreamed of the day I would get to blog about my kids' funnies. You know what I'm talking about right? All the crazy things that kids say and do, how clever they are (albeit unintentionally)... all the good stuff that makes the day to day drone just... BEAUTIFUL.
When Matt was little and was in line at the grocery store, his mom had bought some sanitary napkins. Matt saw them going down the belt, gasped, and said (very loudly), "MOM, do you have bladder control problems???"
Or the time I stuck my tongue out at my mom (I was probably three years old), so she popped me. And then, through my tears (don't you feel so sorry for me?), I said, "My mind wants to say you're a mean mommy, but I won't."
And I know Jonah can't talk yet or anything, but man, oh man, I think we're gonna get some good ones.
So here is my first Jonah Funny.
On Friday, Kathryn had come over and we put Jonah in his little chair in front of Little Bear so that we could eat some lunch (because Heaven Forbid the child actually take a nap). Anyway, he wasn't acting at all interested, and was looking around everywhere but the television, so I said, "Okay, Jonah, if you're not going to watch your show, we're going to turn it to something we want to watch." And I turned it to Everybody Loves Raymond. Then he started looking at the remote and grunting (such a man), so I handed him the remote control to play with. And within just a minute or so, Kathryn and I looked up and Little Bear was back on the TV and Jonah was just staring at it, completely enthralled. He had apparently hit the Previous button on the remote to get it back to his show.
I guess he told us.
