Oh the things we say to our children....

So we all have those things we say to our kids.. the things that we say again and again and again... and don't realize we say.. till they say it back to us!

I am making a cake for a baby shower for Gigi's sister this weekend. I was looking to see what size cake pans i needed.. and knew that i had one bigger.. but could not find it. So I'm going about in the cabinets looking... I open a cabinet and some of the Tupperware and a pitcher fall out. Which falls into the cat food bowl and spills it. I'm thinking whew at least it missed the water bowl! As this was all happening Fred was sitting at the end of the kitchen doing something and saw it all.... And this was the conversation that followed:

Fred: Oh mommy (sigh)..
Me: It's okay
Fred: Mommy we really need to try to be more careful and pay attention.

I looked at him while trying to not bust out laughing and said.. Okay Fred. I'll try.
But you know I figured.. he didn't say it mean at all.. just a little like.. oh my.. what will we do now... sigh... lol... it was really cute.

When Gage would hit his head, or bump into something....you know how kids are..anyway---I would say, "ooooh, buddy."

Now, when he hits his head or bumbs into something, or just feels sorry for himself when he's told "no"...he rubs his head & says, "oh, buddy." His own little self-soothing. It's funny to me.

I'm now officially in love with your kid! My 3 yo is starting to do that kind of thing now, and my 2 yo just looks at me all the time and says, "Uh oh!" Hmmm, wonder where she gets it from?!
