More Funny Things Kids Say

Last week, Youngest came running up to me, clearly very excited.

"Mommy! Guess what? I can do numbers in my head. See?" He then stared intently at me for about thirty seconds, then said. "See? I can do it."

He was so proud of himself that I didn't have the heart to tell him I couldn't hear him. :) And after he left, I nearly busted a gut laughing so hard.

Funny Things Kids Say and Do

Last week, I took my kids on the subway to my husband's office. We had a great evening strolling down Michigan Avenue, then ate dinner and took the train back home. The boys loved it because, of course, trains are cool.

The Chicago buses and trains all have a recorded voice telling the passengers what stop is next, which Youngest thinks is just as cool as the train ride itself. The boys will get out their own toy trains and drive them around their room, announcing the next 'stop' in a voice similar to the one used on the subway system. It's really cute.

Yesterday, Youngest took it to a new level. We'd finished eating lunch, and I always make the boys take their plates and cups to the sink. Youngest is always the last one left at the table. Always. And, he's always talking or singing or making some kind of noise, so I didn't pay much attention to all the noises he was making as he was getting out of his chair.

He picked up his plate, held it in front of him and said "Next stop, Kitchen." Then he made train noises as he chugga-chugged his way to the sink.

I nearly died laughing. :)
