Conversations with LJ
Oct 15, 2010
LJ is 3 1/2 years old and I love our conversations. I thought I should make a record of some of them to read when I need to smile. (Imagine them spoken in preschooler dialect with complete sincerity.)
LJ: "There's a eating dog outside."
Me: "An eating dog? Are you afraid it will eat you?"
Me: "Did someone tell you that?"
LJ: "Yea, IB." (7yo brother)
LJ: "I love you, Momma."
Me: "I love you more."
LJ: "Thank you."
To the random woman at WalMart who tried to touch M2 while he was sleeping in my sling: "Don't touch my baby!"
While admiring the above picture of his new haircut today: "I like getting rid of my hair."
His current affirmative response: "Of course I do."
To the father of a playmate, who he had never met before, when the man gave him an instruction:
"I don't have to listen to you cuz my Dad's a cop."
Later, at home (after a discussion about the difference between good/bad strangers and obeying authority and being respectful):
Me: "Just because Daddy is a police officer doesn't make you any better than other people."
LJ: "Yes it does." (Followed by more discussion. *sigh*)
