❤ENTRY FROM APRIL 17, 2010:
My Son says the darndest things!! LOL!!
Christopher is 5, he’ll be 6 on July 9, 2010. He’s been saying such “hootful” comments (quotes) lately that I started writing them down in a notebook and sharing them on Facebook. I thought it was a sweet idea to record all of his quotes on 43 for every year of his age. Kind of getting a late start on this one since he’s almost 6 but nonetheless, I want to add them until then. And then add another goal for his 6th year and so on…
One day, I’ll print them all out and have him read his childhood thoughts and comments that mommy has kept record of so he can have a couple good laughs :) :D <3
❤ QUOTE FROM APRIL 2, 2010:
Christopher: “Mommy, I really like Allison V.”
Mommy: “Awe, is she nice to you?”
Christopher: “Mmhm. I think I love her. I didn’t want to tell you because you would’ve told me, “You can’t be in love, you’re too young!” but I love her.”
Mommy: “That’s very cool, buddy.”
I was all smiles, as I was having this little conversation with my boy about his first love…this sweet little girl from his class C=
Awe, so sweet <3 My baby's in love...and he tells Allison V, everyday...he even got her phone number later in the week...and she "a little bit" loves him, too. He even drew her out a card and she reciprocated with her own :) TOO FREAKIN' ADORABLE!!!
❤ QUOTE FROM APRIL 3, 2010:
“You know what you can’t do, Mommy? You can’t rewind life.”
This one made me giggle! He said he came up with it all by himself-he’ll tell me if someone said it or if he heard it on tv or something. I told him that was very true and had a funny little moment with my 5 (going on 30) year-old Son C;
❤ QUOTES FROM APRIL 4, 2010:
“I want to go to school forever!!”
This was during Spring Break, wanting to go back to class. Wowzaa!! That comment was certainly a shocker as his school experience so far in Kindergarten has been a trial, to say the least, already. I transferred his school and he’s been having a bit of an easier time the last month or so. At his other school it was, “I hate my school.” So, fortunately, his feeling towards school have made a very grateful U-Turn. YAY!!!
Mommy: “Do you love her?
Christopher: “No. She just thinks I’m cute.”
~C.J. & Mommy
This lovely comment was said at Old Country Buffet Restaurant. There is a girl that works there that always comes up and says him to him and listens to his multiple stories he tells her-she’s such a Saint! Anyways, she’s always telling him how cute he is and as she was walking away, I asked him if he loved her like he does Allison V and he came back with the comment that she just thinks he’s cute. What a flirt my kiddo is…already!
“Kazinga!! Kazinga!! Kazinga!!”
If anyone has ever watched the CBS Comedy, Big Bang Theory and has witnessed the character, “Sheldon,” state his hysterical “Bazinga” as a comment after he plays a joke on one of his science buddies or thinks he says something tricky or fools one of them…this quote came from that show. My Son happened to be watching an episode where “Sheldon” jumped into a ball pit, while his friend was trying to catch him but “Sheldon” kept going under the balls and popping up, saying “bazinga” over and over. Sounds lame but very comical! So while we were eating at OCB (with the girl who thinks he’s cute) he kept going under the table and popping up with a “KAZINGA!!” It was so cute =D
“It’s my Fireman Star background music. There’s lots!”
Christopher has this group of imaginary friends called, “The Fireman Star Friends” (he’d be so mad for telling you this) that help save people and he talks to about this at that-especially before bed which bugs me as he’ll do it for a couple hours. Anyways, he chatters/whispers to them throughout the day at times and mumbles this and that. Well, he was in the kitchen, playing with a game, while he was making some kind of humming song. I asked him what he was singing and that was his response. Teeheehee C;
Christopher: “I wanna swing around the brown thing up there!”
Mommy: “But then you’ll die.”
Christopher: “I’ll try not to.”
~C.J. & Mommy
This was while we were at the park and he wanted me to push him so hard he’d swing over the bar above him. He wouldn’t stop yelling it, even after I gave him several under doggies, so I said what I said and his response was so serious and calm sounding that it made me giggle :]
❤ QUOTE FROM APRIL 20, 2010:
Mommy: “Where’d you get that scrape from?”
Christopher: “From recess. It’s rough out there.”
And he was so straight-face serious about it! Lol.
❤ QUOTE FROM APRIL 27. 2010:
“No, mommy, I don’t like your new hair. You look pretty with long hair, and gramma looks pretty with dark hair.”
This was right after I got my hair cut…he obviously liked my old hair. My mom (his gramma) has recently stopped coloring her hair and is now fully grey…he’s not too happy with either one of us =D Kids are always brutally honest =X
❤ QUOTES FROM MAY 1. 2010:
“My old friend wasn’t nice, he hit me and was mean but he moved to another state so I’m really happy now!”
He was telling this to a couple ladies at the local indoor park as we were paying to get in. They got a kick outta his brand of honesty. The weird thing is, he hung out with said boy maybe twice…he was a nasty little boy, much like his mother. But my son seemed to think they were the absolute best of friends…kids are funny that way =P
“I like fighting…fighting my bad behavior!! Oh, yeah!! I have the power to fight my bad decisions!! I’m strong! See!”
...as he flexes his muscles lol. He said this after we got home from playing with his friend at this indoor park and over the last year or so, this boy has gotten pretty rough in play and was choking my little guy and throwing him up against the play equipment (so not cool)! And my son kept saying “make good choices! Be nice to me!” I was so proud of my son for wanting to fight his own bad behavior and for trying to help his friend make good decisions. My son has made so many positive strides over the last year socially, emotionally and educationally! I’m so very proud of him and the accomplishments yet to come!!! I’m a very happy mommy :) <3
❤ QUOTES FROM MAY 2. 2010:
“I wish I was a dad. I would play with my kids more often. I would say ‘go to the park’ and they would have so much fun. That’s why I wish I was a dad. I’m imagining I’m a dad right now.”
Sad but true. I don’t play outside with my kiddo as much as I should. It’s usually, “later, in a little while, tomorrow, this weekend, when you’re able to behave for the day” etc. I don’t know what happened to my “child-like, fun, playful spirit” (???). Kinda sad. I want that back and want to be able to enjoy playing outdoors and having fun. I really need to keep this particular quote in mind throughout the day since the weather is just finally getting better for outside play and summer break is coming up! I will make this the best summer, ever!!! hopefully fingers crossed for some hefty doses of motivation/energy/creativeness/and so on…
“Here. Let a man handle this.”
...My little man said this after his gramma and I couldn’t get the darn kite to stay in the air. He thought he could do better than us lol =D He said this quote as he had his hands on his sides, with a smirk on his face-it was priceless!!
❤ QUOTES FROM JUNE 9, 2010:
“I’m a First Grader now, Mommy! Did you see me?!“
After his Graduation/Music Program from Kindergarten! It was such an adorable show the kids put on for all of us. I laughed and smiled as my kiddo sang and danced and teared-up as he was handed his diploma in his little red, hand-made cap :) I’ll never forget it! I’m so proud of my son for making it through Kindergarten…seems easy enough but my son has had such difficulties in the social areas and paying attention, sitting still etc. I’m just so happy it’s done…at least until September and 1ST GRADE! oh my! Not sure if I’m ready.
“A book? A book’s not a gift! It’s not a toy of candy or anything!”
After his teacher gave all the kid’s books as their Graduation presents. Christopher was given a Clifford book about Graduation and thought that wasn’t good enough. Shame on my little guy. He read it straight through though and enjoyed it so that’s all that matters. His teacher was incredible! She’s gonna be hard to top, indefinitely!
❤ QUOTE FROM JUNE 11, 2010:
“SpongeBob wears underwear to bed, so I can wear underwear to bed.”
After me telling him to get his jammies on for the night. He refused to and wanted to sleep in his undies, which was fine but I just thought it was funny that he had to mention SpongeBob and his underwear. Dang cartoons and their sponges-bad influences lol =P
❤ QUOTE FROM JULY, 1, 2010 (but written on his 6th Birthday, July, 9th):
“I’m going into my room, with the sign that says ‘don’t come in!’ to talk to God about how to make mommies disappear.”
He was having an anti-mom day and I wasn’t sure to be hurt a little or tickled-pink by this comment! It was funny after the moment…after he had stomped up the stairs and slammed his door…with the ‘don’t coem in!’ sign…even cuter by the fact he spelled it ‘coem.’ LOL.
There were a few more but I’m having good ol’ Mommy Brain at this time and can’t think of them…I may post more later but for the time being…IT’S HIS 6TH BIRTHDAY TODAY AND I AM MARKING THIS OFF AND MAKING A NEW GOAL FOR MORE QUOTES AS A BIG BOY 6 YEAR-OLD!!! :)
❤ QUOTES FROM JULY 7, 2010:
I slept over at my boyfriend’s house…had put my son down to bed and my mom watched him overnight so I could go over to his apartment child-free (which is such an amazing thing! Lol). My mom told my son in the morning when he realized I wasn’t home that I went out to breakfast with “M.” My son called me while I was over at my bf’s place in the a.m. and I said I was eating…my son asked if I was on a date…I said we were just eating. When I got home my son was asking about what I did. I said I was taken out to breakfast…and he got a ‘ah ha’ face and said,
“I knew you were on a date, mommy!”
I asked,“Is it okay with you if I date “M”?”
He replied,“No, you can’t date “M” but you CAN MARRY HIM! He’d be the best grandpa, ever!”^
Kids say the damndest things, I swear. No filters on their they-know-it-all minds. “M” and I have a good deal of age between us and he seems to think he’s ‘grandpa age’ HELL NO! But it was funny to hear a kid say that. I had to explain to him he’s not a grandpa by any means :D I won’t dare tell “M” what he said but it tickled me, in a weird way. As long as my little guy is cool with me marrying him, we’re all good j/k. Haha.^
My son’s quotes are so gonna come in handy as blackmail later on, LOL. Just joking…kinda :P
