About 80 percent of what comes out of Zachary’s mouth these days (not including the chewed and discarded green vegetables) makes the “Days Highlights” event that occurs between my husband and I once the kids are asleep for the night. I decided I MUST start writing these little snippets down for posterity, and what better place keep them but here?
My hope is that it will inspire some of my readers to share little nuggets from their own babe’s mouths in the comment section below. They can be from today, yesterday, last year or decades ago. I’m sure we all have something to share! If I get enough of a response, perhaps this will be a regular segment. We shall see.
This could be fun!
And with that, I bring you three quotes from this week:
1.)”Mommy! Stop putting my toys away! It’s not sanitary!!!”
2.) “Mommy, I think you’re being dramatic.”
3.) (This one requires very specific stage directions)
Zachary faces me head on, grabs my face in his little hands, looks into my eyes and says
“Mommy, I love you”
(long enough for my eyes to well up with tears, give a little sigh, hold him close and say “I love you too, Zachary…so much” in the most tender of ways)
After moments of this emotional embrace he pulls away, looks once again into my eyes and finishes,
“But I don’t like cucumbers or zucchini”
He has tricked us with this brilliant piece of acting, having us believing he is truly overcome with the overwhelming need to express his love for one or both of us, at least three times this week.
