nicknames and Lucyisms


The other day I was telling my mom something cute
that Lucy said.
She totally cracked up then said,
"I don't recall reading that on your blog."

Apparently I'm supposed to report everything to you all!

So that really got me thinking that since I have yet to
start Lucy's scrapbook (guilt flooding down),
I guess I should try to record these cute things

Like the time my boys were itty bitty (maybe 3 & 5).
We were driving down the road...with the normal boy to
mom conversations (i.e., "Do frogs taste good? Why can't we
drive as fast as we want to worms yawn?

Yeah, those kinds of conversations.
Then Brenden asked me something out of the blue,

"Mom, do I have a nick-name?"

"Hmmm," I thought, "well, I guess Bren would be your nickname."

"No. How about Jefferson?"


Sure, Jefferson is a perfect nick name.
I can't imagine why I didn't think of that myself.

See, this kid has been getting to me from very early on.
Wait til I tell you one day about the time he tried
to tape the ceiling fan to his head so he could fly.

Anyway, back to Lucy.

We were sitting on the swing with my mom,
swaying in the cool summer breeze.
I asked Lucy,
"Are you my sweet girl?"

"No Mom, I'm Chinese!"


Another time on the swing set....
I had been trying to teach Lucy how to pump her
legs so she could swing all by herself.

After a couple of weeks...
she just about had it mastered.
She couldn't quite pronounce the word "pumping"...
and it came out more like...


And since I already told you she keeps all L's silent,
here was what she told me as she
so independently was going back and forth
on the swing...

"Look Mama, I'm cookin' my 'eggs!"


Ok, that's all for now.
Funny, huh?

Oh, and look who has discovered lipstick.

I so wish I had kept notes on the funn "isms" my kids came up with.

I do remember my oldest asking, "do flies have ears?"

Sounds like that swingset is going to be the meeting place for many meaningful conversations with your girl/girls!
Something my grandson said the other day that I though was kinda cute. My daughter went for a school interview with him because he is starting KG this yr. The principle asked him what it was he wanted to learn in school and he said "Well, I would like to learn about cars AND I would really like to learn how to spell the word Playdoh". lol, how cute is that!

Cookin' eggs - that is good! Unfortunately, Chick-a-Dee has a loud voice and doesn't pronounce all of her r's. When we are eating in public, I try to prepare for her naming or asking for a fork. Yes, it comes out sounding like a vulgar word. Heads DO turn.

Kids are so entertaining! I remember when my daughter was 2 years old. We were eating dinner and she told me to give her another piece of bread. I told her she had to finish her chicken first. She pouted for a minute and then said, "I'm going to eat my chicken now so you can obey me." Another time my dear husband had spilled some coffee on the floor. She proceeded to explain to him, "The kitchen floor is special, Daddy. We don't drop coffee on it!"

Tony and Rett said...

HAHAHAHAH. LOVE every single one of them!

I've documented them to make them blush when they're older some way...why not via the blog!

Haha, that's so cute! Brenden's a crack-up, that's for sure! haha. Lucy is so cute, that must've been funny to hear her talking about how she was "cooking her eggs"! :)

Karin said...

Too cute!! Keep writing them down! :) When they are older they get all bugged when you laugh at something they did and say, 'Are you going to put that on your blog?' When they are little, they love seeing themselves on the blog. :))

Good thing you are recording these "isms" because they are so easily forgotten in everyday life happening but are so precious to remember.
