#1: We’re all in the car running errands.Myles: “Something smells funny in here.”
John: ” Yeah?”
Myles: ” Yeah, it smells like tablet. That’s all.”
*By tablet, he’s referring to his little mini iPad that has all his educational game loaded onto it. Really?
#2: Hey there, worms.
Me: “Finding anything good?”
Myles: “Ugh..I keep calling these worms to come out and they won’t listen. I’m mad.”
Me: “Maybe they’re sleeping?”
Myles: “WORMS! Hey there,worms! WAKE UP!” – This is as he’s yelling at the ground at the top of his lungs.
#3: Broken underwear is tragic.
We go to the mall and while there, I wanted to go get my wedding ring cleaned. Fredrick’s of Hollywood Lingerie store is along the way.
Myles running up to the window of the store: “Oh NO!”
Me: “What’s wrong?”
Myles: “All the underwears in the store is broken!”
Me: “Myles, I don’t know what to tell you about that.”
John the entire time: “Megan. MEGAN! Stop taking pictures!”
Ha ha ha.
#4: Another window in the mall, another day.
Again, we’re at the mall and Myles sees this window of a wig store and runs over to it before I could even catch up with him.
Myles: “Mommy. What happened to the bodies?”
Me: “They’re like lady statues (what he calls mannequins), but without bodies.”
Myles: “This is just too sad.”
#5: Myles goes to the gym with me today. We’re in the car.
Myles: “Mommy, where are we going now? This isn’t the way home…”
Me: “Oh, I wanted to stop by the gym for an hour or so. Ok? You can play while I work out.”
Myles: “Are you going to exer-sauce?”
Me: “I need to stay in shape. I don’t want a buda belly.”
Myles: “Oh, so they fix it at the gym?”
Me: “Not quite, I have to work out and exercise!”
In the meantime Myles goes to the Kid’s Club and I go work out for an hour. I go in to pick him up.
Myles: “Mommy! Mommy! Did you get your big ‘ol buda belly fixed?”
Me (turning red): “Honey, it takes more than one trip to the gym. Don’t worry about it.”
Myles: “I’m sorry. Maybe there’s a doctor for it like the cough doctor.”
*Side note: I am exactly the same size I’ve been for years. He’s just obsessed with telling everyone he meets they have a big belly. Again, that could be partially because the lady who watches Myles being pregnant. Kids….. they say ANYTHING.
