samson walked out of the nursery into the living room early one morning where we were all gathered and said, “wow. i was asleep for like 3 years.”
“that building is as tall as a dragon dinosaur!”
me: “hey samson!” samson: “just call me boy.”
“what my heck.”
“i’m doing hanitizer.” referring to hand sanitizer....
“i want some open meal.”
“what is open meal?”
“you know, OPEN MEAL!!!! it sounds like an S.”
(we later realized he was saying “oatmeal” which of course, sounds exactly like the letter S. lol!)
“mama, do pigs fly in planes?”
before i can even answer he smacks his leg, “haha, no!...
(i hear eleanor talking in the other room.) me: who are you talking to?
eleanor: heavenly father. i’m telling him about my balloon.
me: oh, are you saying a prayer?
eleanor: no. i’m just chit chatting with him.
eleanor walks out of her bedroom and into ours at 1AM one night, rubs her eyes, and excitedly announces, “GOOOOOD MORNINGGGGG!” with a mischievous smile....
happy new year! i figured there is no better way to kick off 2015 on this blog than with a few of the fantastic things eleanor and samson have been saying lately. (i’ve shared several eleanorisms here before, but at 2 1/2, samson has been cracking us up lately as well.) i just can’t get enough to these two right now (except around 5pm everyday, which is the most cursed hour around this place.) but there is never a dull moment around here and i’m constantly jotting down several silly things they say throughout the day to look back on and share with them someday. ...
at 3 1/2, eleanor has proven she is my most favorite person to talk to. each conversation is nothing short of entertaining and full of thought and wit. i love being her mama.
“i was a little girl once. i was two.”
“maybe he left his listening ears at home…” referring to samson when he wasn’t listening to mama....
