I hear a few phrases all the time lately. One is “Me Try!” I think that’s pretty self-explanatory, as I have a typical two year old who would really like to try to do everything independently.
I hear, “Mom, I understand baby.” I was fairly impressed by this, until this morning when I realized he says this only while standing in front of the baby. That’s when it occurred to me that Alex doesn’t understand understand. (Did you understand that? Ha!)
The best one (to me) is this…
He rides up to me on his tractor.
(Note the tractor shirt.)
He announces, “Mama, I home from work!”
He answers, “Farm work.”
“Alex a farmer. Drive a tractor.”
It won’t be long before the tractors are back in the fields, and I know he’s going to be THRILLED!
(The other variation of this is that he’s a banker. But apparently, bankers drive tricycles or fire trucks. Perhaps we should take a little field trip to visit Grandma at the bank…and then stop at the dollar store for some play money.)
