This past week Noah has had several conversations that have just struck me so funny...that I wanted to be sure to write them down.
The other night, I took Jonah and Noah with me per their request to the grocery store...which ended up being Carters, Orshlens, Walmart, and then Dillons. They were having a good time, and we took our time (helllooo Lego aisle at Walmart). Anyway, when we got to Dillons, I put them in the cart and Noah told Jonah something about getting a lifesaver. I didn't pay much attention to what he was saying. And then after the first aisle we went down, he asked me something about getting "those lifesavers". I honestly didn't know what he was talking about. I turned to go to the produce area, and then he lite up and said, "ahhh, this is where those lifesavers are." And that's when it hit me; SEVERAL weeks ago, I had taken him with me to the grocery store, and ran into someone I knew after we had stopped at the free produce for small children display. I love this about Dillons, they let you give your child a banana, cutie, or apple, which makes shopping WAY more enjoyable for everyone...."a lifesaver" I had told the woman I was talking to. I never thought about Noah listening to what I was saying, nor would I have EVER imagined he would refer to these free produce items as only "livesavers"! So after I realized that was what he was referring to. I went to the display, and Noah gives his excited sigh, and asks Jonah, "Which lifesaver do you want? A banana or cutie?" And as he had remembered from the last time the cutie we had gotten had a bad spot, so he said, "I'll take a banana because we know that the cuties are bad." The child has a mind like a steel trap!!! YIKES!
When he was getting ready for bed, I asked him to go to the bathroom. So he goes to the bathroom, then comes back in the bedroom and looks at me. "What?" "I think I need to go poop." "Ok, then go." He takes a couple steps, and then turns around and looks at me. "Go poop, Noah." "Well, I don't need to. It was just my underwear in my crack. It made me feel like I had to go poop, but I really don't need to." If I could somehow input the way in which he said this, so matter-of-fact, yet with a slight smile...it was hilarious.
In the morning, I was getting everyone dressed in the same room. I was trying to get a diaper on Jonah. Noah starts a conversations all about diapers. "Jonah you wear a diaper because you don't go poop or pee on the potty. Isaac you are just a baby so you wear diapers. And I do not wear diapers, I wear underwear. Wellll...at night I wear pull-ups, which are a type of diapers. And I also wear pull-ups when I sneeze poop and have diarrhea. That is definitely when I need to wear pull-ups. But most of the time I just wear underwear, because I am big." (I could not refrain from laughing, it was so funny.)
We went to see Grandpa in the hospital with his knee replacement. The nurses were very intrigued with the face that "all four boys were mine". So, as we stepped out to go to the bathroom, one of the nurses asked me if "I wanted a girl" and then went a step further to say, "Well don't you want to try for a girl.". This is definitely not the first person to say this. So I responded with something that satisfies this type of comment. "I think we're just fine with the four boys we have, they are pretty special." But as we are walking away Noah says to me, "Well, we ARE going to have a girl...but just not for a long time from now." Bahahahahaha.
