Okie Dokie?

Dad: "Jack, get your shoes on, we're going to go real soon!"
Jack: "Doughy cookie!"

That made me stop and figure...

This just keeps getting better

After being woken up by Maggie, Jack informs me; "I want Maggie to be back in your tummy."

Maggie has said: "Pooh Bear", "My duy!" (my guy - referring to the toys she was playing with that Jack had just taken from her), "Line" (lion), "meewmeew" (oatmeal), "I hudee" (I'm hungry), "I peew" (I spilled, when in fact it was Jack who spilled)

She warmed her Daddy's heart with: "Doctor Who"

Maggie has replaced some "F's" with the "SH" sound. So, she'll point to her foot and say; "shoot". Jack was "tying" (crying) and we told her he was having a fit. Oops.

Jack: "Can I have some tomato juice?"
Mom: "Yes."
(Mom gets instructions to open it and remove the tab.)
Dad: "Do you like tomato juice?"
Jack: "Yeah! It's really slurpy."

Jack: "If a train broke our car, I can say; 'God! Help us!' And Maggie can say; 'Dee dee dee ahh!'"

Jack: "You're right mom. Sometimes we eat food we don't like."

Jack: "Do we have much time?" (I assume this comes from the frequent comments of; "Hurry Jack, we don't have much time.")

"Dad, the guys with the swords and shields are called Cheeweeds."


"Because they have swords."

"Some cats are for growling at" - Jack

Out of the mouths of babes

"tute" (cute)

After microwaving a bowl of oatmeal for Maggie, she totters over saying; "Pee hot" (please, hot - she must know that things coming out of the microwave are hot)
Moments later, I'm telling her that she can't eat the oatmeal in her room because I don't want her to get oatmeal on the rug. Jack tells me; "Don't worry mom. Don't worry, I can clean it up."

Bringing out one of the sweaters Grandma Darlene made for her, she says; "A tute." (I want cute.) Later, she's wearing one of the sweaters. I take her to the mirror to see what she looks like. "Maddie tute." (Maddie = Maggie)

Maggie ha sbreached the lofted bed again. This time without the ladder. An ideal response from Jack would be; "Is nothing sacred any more?"

"Whatchoo do?" (what'd you do?)

"batap" (backpack)

"toe-eee" (story)

"un'ies" (undies)

"no tit, no ti" (no kick, no kick)

[Maggie points to the moon]
Mom: "Do you see the moon Maggie?"
[Jack looks up] "I see it too Mom. It's not quite finished yet."

"Mom, do you need to watch the road?"
"Yes, I do."
"I needa watch the cars."

One for the'Uh Oh" Files

From the Uh Oh File:
"Dad, look, this [key] fits in here [outlet]." Followed by stern; "NO's" from both parents, a cry of startled bewilderment from Jack, and lots of hugs and attempts at explaining why that is not a good idea.

"I'm lucky, but I haven't thanked God."

Jack made a spaceship with his bristle blocks and announces; "It's my second grade spaceship!"

Maggie's new phrase:
"Mommy toot"
and other words:
"shoot" (foot)
"watch" (watch)
"Opee Do." (Open door)
Jack coughed one morning while they were still in bed. Maggie said; "Bassyooo" (bless you)
"A none" (all done)
On our way out the door, Maggie found their cups milk. She took hers, then got Jack's, taking it to him saying; "Hees a moow" (here's your milk)

The boys are downstairs watching a movie. I'm working on dinner, Maggie is having a snack. Maggie stands at the top of the stairs saying; "Daddee, tum up." Then she turns to me and says; "'A daddee ta tum up." (I want Daddy to come up.)

Jack put a cd in his cd player. Maggie heard the music, went running into their room
and started twirling around "dancing".

Jack: "Maggie, do you want to go to Trader Joe's?"
"No." (which can mean yes, or no.)
"Maggie, please would you go to Trader Joe's?"

Maggie pulled the craisins out of the cupboard and brought them to me. When I asked if she wanted some, she indicated she did (nodding and saying "See"), then she indicated the bench by the door where I often put her food.
