The Darnedst Things, pt.1

Jay has been talking up a storm the last few months which as you can imagine has lent itself to some comical moments in our house. While he isn't rattling off full blown paragraphs of hilarity just yet, I'm sure it's only right around the corner. I've been keeping a running list of the funny things he says, mostly for my own memory, but some things are meant to be shared. 

A few weeks ago Derek was getting Jay ready for bed. Upon noticing he had nipples for the first time in his entire life, he looked up at him with all seriousness pointing to both of his nipples, and asked, "What are these?" Derek just died laughing and never answered. 

I was getting Jay a snack at the table one afternoon when we were having the tell-mom-I-need-every-snack-from-the-pantry moment. As I'm scurrying around trying to juggle veggie straws, goldfish, and pretzels, Jay spills his milk all over the table. He then laughs a fully belly chuckle and says, "Why am I so funny?!"

One morning Jay randomly hurt his bum doing who knows what... He then comes into the room crying saying, "I hurt my bum! Kiss it to make it feel better?" And because I'm a sucker I did... With a barrier of 100% cotton sweatpants of course. 

At some point during the three months where it felt like Em never slept there was a particularly rough 4:45pm where I just had to let Jay play downstairs with his toys (which he's usually always fine with), put Em in her crib to let her cry, and I went and cowered in my bedroom under the covers for 15 minutes before Derek got home. When he arrived he was carrying a pizza and as he walked through the door Jay exclaimed, "Mommy LOVES pizza!" It was in fact one of the brighter spots in my day. 

Wednesday of this week I was having a moment of frustration trying to get Em to eat her lunch which ended in her getting super upset. I felt myself getting frustrated so once she was calm I put her in her room for a few minutes while I sat on the stairs for a five minute breather. Jay came up next to me and I said, "Mommy's sorry she's not very fun today...", and then Jay replied, "No, I'm sorry." Then I replied, "No, I'm apologizing to you, you don't need to be sorry, I'm sorry." He replied again with, "No, I'm sorry!" and then we got in a back and forth giggle argument over who was supposed to be sorry. And then he kissed me on the cheek and all was right with the world. 

We love this guy, I think we'll keep him round for another few months. 


  1. Oh goodness, too funny! My little one says the craziest things too; I never know what's going to come out of this mouth next. And the littlest just follows suit and copies everything which makes it that much better!

  2. You are a very sweet momma! I love that you can talk with him and apologize over things. My Dad always had a hard time apologizing and it took me until much older to realize he did, but usually not with words.
