13 Things Said By My 4-year-old

Also known as 13 Eli-isms! Eli says so many funny things that I decided to start writing them down. These are a few gems he came up with over the past couple of weeks.

1. When I served him dinner – “Get that off the table! It’s slimy and smelly.”

2. When I hugged him – “MOMMY! You are popping my personal space bubble!”

3. When he saw the sign at the entrance to the library that said no weapons, he shouted, “Well it sure is a good thing we didn’t bring our gun!”

4. When we were at a standstill in bumper-to-bumper traffic – “Mommy? Are we stuck in the doldrums?”

5. After watching my husband shave – “I am not EVER going to have hair on my face like daddy!”

6. When eating lunch – “Mommy, look! When I chew up green beans, it makes green lettuce.” Then, he proceeded to spit it out and show me.

7. To his 19-month-old sister – “No, Georgia! You can NOT have mommy’s beer!” Always good advice. . .

8. In regards to his little sister – “Mommy, how old does Georgia have to be before she grows a penis?”

9. Whenever we pass a deer crossing sign – “Shhhh! You have to be very quiet. We’re going through a moose forest!”

10. To the librarian at preschool – “Actually, I don’t like books anymore. I prefer DVDs!”

11. On his way to the bathroom – “I need to go to the bathroom REALLY bad! My tummy is doing the cha-cha!”

12. When we went into a public restroom, he shouted, “Mommy, do you have a quarter? I REALLY need a tampon!”

13. When I held his hand going into the grocery store – “Mommy, let go! You’re going to rip my arm off!”

Those are so funny. And he's right, it's always a good idea not to bring your gun to the mall.

oh my goodness - that had me laughing out loud in the middle of the facutly lounge at school. "moose forest" is just about the funniest thing i've ever heard. and the next time i feel sick, i will definitely be telling everyone that "my tummy is doing the cha-cha." thanks for that.

happy thursday! :)
