Some days, I wonder what makes Isaac’s world tick,a nd how he categorizes things. It really makes me laugh sometimes. Over the past few days, he’s made some “corrections” of sorts when I say something. It’s actually quite funny.

My favorite two are these:

When Doug came home from the hospital, Princess Pretendtocare sent him a stuffed dog and some flowers. Isaac promptly claimed the dog. Doug didn’t mind. Well, Isaac carried that sucker around for 2 days, and at one point, we had to go out. He brought it with him, and when we got to the store (I think it was target…) I asked him if he wanted to bring his dog with him. He said to me:

“It not a dog, Mommy. It a PUPPY.  No, no bring puppy into the store.”

I stand corrected.

The second was today. We were driving over to the ‘rents house, and I offered Isaac a pack of the Lilo and Stitch soy crisps. They come in flavors, and one is Banana. I said to him “Isaac- do you want Banana, strawberry or french toast?”

He thought about this, and was very confused. I repeated the request, dropping out the strawberry, for fear that I overloaded him….

He thought for a few more minutes, and said:
“That not a banana! Those LILO COOKIES! I want some Lilo cookies!”

I stand corrected again.

    Hey your layout looks vaguely familiar . . . I just can’t place it . . . LOL

    Kids are great like that. My son takes many opportunities to point out when I say something incorrectly, especially when I am upset with him. My fav is when he pretends to not understand me because I said ONE word wrong. UHG! Too cute to wring his neck.

    You’re lucky – he is still in the way too cute to think annoying phase.

    Whoops, did that sound bitter?

    OH, I can sooo relate! My boys are 9 and 12 and I STILL get that from them. But I think my all time favorite was the time I was arguing with the older one (he was maybe 4 or so) about getting his shoes on, because we were in a hurry. At first, I was gently, then urgently, asking him to get his shoes on so that we could get going. Finally, totally exasperated, I asked him why he didn’t yet have his shoes on. HE very sweetly said to me, “Mommy, they’re not SHOES, they’re SNEAKERS”. And, yes, I did lose it, I’m sorry to report. Throwing my hands in the air in total frustration, I hollered at him, “Fine! Then get your G-D sneakers on and let’s go!!”. To which he ever-so-innocently replied, “Mommy, they’re not G-D. They’re JUST sneakers”.

    Oh, and I forgot to add…

    Now, we just call all sorts of things you wear on your feet “footwear”. That saves us time and arguing…LOL.

    Oh yea, we’ve gotten to this stage too with our little cookie monster.
    “Calm down! You’re such a little monkey”
    “I not monkey. I running!”
