Kids say funny stuff. Sometimes funny enough to become permanent family dialog. Other times kids come up with a saying or two that, in a parents memory, sums up the child’s life accurately and succinctly.
These have become legend in my house and, so far, describe each of my kid’s character almost perfectly:
(In order of birth, because listing them by most to least favorite would be rude.)
Child # 1: (speaking in the third person) “Leave her alone! Get away fer her!”
Child # 2: “Watch I can do!” always followed by, “I OK.”
Child #3: Top 2 (so far)… “I broke it.” or “I be naked.”
And so we stopped at three.
