Here's Some Mommybloggin' For Ya

Since I have a blog, this seems to be the place to record my sons' milestones, right?  Okay, so here you go then. Because, it's official. We've arrived at this one:


Plus One (age 4): [SHOUTING.] BabyBabyBaby!

T9 (age 2): Huh?

Plus One: [Now whispering.] Say pee-pee! Say pee-pee to Mommy!

T9: Ohh, yeahhh. Peepee. Peepee Mahhhmeee?

Plus One: [Laughing so hard he turns blue, and--let's face it--probably wets himself.] HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

T9: [Mildly confused, but suddenly amused by his brother's flailing.] Heeheeeee. Peepee Mahhhmeee.


And then, just today at lunch, there was this exchange:


T9: [Sitting at dining room table.] Brah-buh? Brah-buh gone, Mahhmee?

Me: No, he's just going potty, kiddo. He'll be right back.

T9: Oh, yeahhh, potty.

Plus One: [Entering room, hearing his brother, and climbing into his chair.] I was just going potty, Baby. It's for big boys.

Me: Well, you're both old enough for potty now, boys. T9 goes potty, too, Plus One.

T9: Bay-bee! Potty! YAYYYY!

Plus One: [LIGHT BULB. And again, sudden whispering across the table] Baby! Baby!

T9: Huh?

Plus One: Say toilet! Say toilet to Mommy!

T9: Oh, yeeaahh, toy-ett. Toy-ett, Mahhmeee.

Plus One: [Spitting juice, exploding brain synapses, and falling from chair dramatically.] HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

T9: Heehee. Bru-bah! Bruh-bah faaah down! Hah hah.

Me: IT DOESN'T SOUND LIKE YOU'RE EATING YOUR GREEN BEANS, CHILDREN.

  1. First!

    And with a 10 year old and an 8 year old, let me tell you, big bro always tries to get his little sis to say things that crack him up.

    Although she's a bit more wise to his games now. But if I don't get her to stop calling it a "cock"ulator before she hits junior high, we're in trouble...

  2. Excellent conversion of baby talk to text. I envy you. Your talent, not your kids.

  3. Haha, they sound like a fun handful :) I never understood how parents can keep a straight face when their kids come up with this priceless dialog. I'm pretty sure I would just laugh at them. Going to be a great mom one day, lol

  4. Oh how I would give everything to go back to those times and be entirely, wholly amused by such shenanigans. Ahhh.

  5. Is it me, or is the blogosphere awash in potty talk lately? I'm probably just more tuned into it right now because we just broke out the potties and the potty books in preparation to start training the girls to stop crapping their pants. In any case, this is just one more thing I've got to look forward to. Sigh.

  6. It never stops. The 11 yr old still does it to the 6 yr old, and they both do it to the 2 yr old.

    I recommend muzzles.

  7. Muzzles is an excellent idea. My three year old is just starting to really talk (he had temporary hearing loss after some badly ruptured ear drums, all better now) and his sisters are getting a kick out of finally getting him to say things.

    Only problem now is he's kind of too old to by manipulated. So he's punching them instead. Bad. bad. bad.

  8. I'm sorry, but toilet humor is hilarious no matter what age you are. According to my husband and every other man I've ever known.

  9. Now ask him to look under there, and then he'll say "under where" and it will be hilarious.

  10. Comedy writers in the making right there.

  11. I'm a humor writer, but I have yet to write about potty training. Right now, it is just not funny to me . . . maybe a little. My son does his business next to the potty, but has yet to go in the potty, and we've been working on it for months. Months, I tell you! Arg. Help! Thanks for giving me some perspective.

  12. My girls have now reached the age where they disdain toilet talk...but they secretly laugh if they think no one's looking. :D

  13. When my nephew was about five my sister took him into a pet store at the mall. She wandered over to look at aquarium fish while he eyed the birds, and that's when he shouted across the store to her, "Mom! Look at this bird with the big pecker!"
    She didn't move, hoping he'd find something else to talk about, but he repeated it, only louder.
    After she dashed over and took him aside to keep him from saying it again, he said,
    "Well? He pecks with it, doesn't he?"

    sigh...

  14. Oh for the toddler days, when youngsters mispronounce words like clock radio and proceed to joyfully announce to all those in Best Buy that we are there looking for "Papa's c*ck radio." Couldn't get him to use his quiet voice for the life of me. Now he is 17 and won't shop with me much less discuss electronic purchases. Enjoy your little ones these 6 footers are killing me.
