Mason has ALWAYS been a fun kid. He's dramatic, expressive and started talking early with a large vocabulary. People have giggled at his "big words" coming out of a teeny person (i.e. using words like explosive and compartment at age 3 and using phrases such as "FIRE IN THE HOLE!!!" while popping Kix cereal into his mouth).
I've been compiling a list of "Mason Says" phrases for a couple of months now and thought I'd share some of my favorites.
While we're getting ready for movie night and pulling pillows and blankets off of their beds and dragging them into the family room.
Mason: "Mommy, I need you to please get down that one blanket."
Me: "Which one, baby?"
Mason : "You know... the ziploc blanket!"
Me: "I'm sorry, what?!?!?!"
Mason: "The ZIPLOC BLANKET!!! The one that I lay inside and it zips up???"
Me: "Ohhhhhhhhhhhhh. Your sleeping bag???? Sure!"
We were sitting down at the table eating dinner, when Dave asked me if I wanted some avocado. I'm not sure WHAT was wrong with me, but I told him no thank you, that I didn't want any avocado at the moment and almost instantaneously Mason broke down into inconsolable sobs....
Mason: "But, Mommy!!! I want you to come with us! You have to come with us! I'll miss you too much if you don't come!!!"
Me: "What on earth are you talking about??? I'm not going anywhere! You're not going anywhere! We're all sitting right here eating dinner!"
Mason: "You said you didn't want any avocado! And when we go to avocado and stay in the house with bunk beds I want you to come!!!"
Me: "Baby, that's COLORADO, not AVOCADO" ;)
This weekend my dad was over at our house hanging out and he asked Mason how old he thought I was. Mason's response??? Old and a half. Yes. He said old and a half. #sigh
There's a student in his class this year who has allergies, and apparently they were at lunch talking about being allergic to things and how we can help our friends who have allergies and such and the teachers were asking the kids what they were allergic to. Mason's response had me ROLLING... Broccoli and bedtime.
Whenever Mason wants to take a shortcut he'll let you know, but he doesn't say SHORT cut, he says SHIRT cut. It's seriously the cutest.
Anytime Mason has to quantify something, he uses fifty thousand to do so. For example, "Last night I had 50,000 dreams about praying mantises and there were 50,000 donuts that they were climbing on and it was 50,000 times awesome"
As we were getting ready for church on Sunday Mason complimented me and told me how pretty I looked. I crouched down and teasingly asked him, "So who's the prettiest girl you know???"
I was waiting for him to reply with MOMMY and plant a big kiss on my, but instead he squinted his eyes a bit, thought about it and goes, "Well, probably Anna Grace. Or maybe Miss Shay."
I can't blame him... they're pretty girls :) hahaha
Boom Goes the Cannon
I think he picked this up on an episode of Sofia The First, but he will shout, "Boom Goes The Cannon!!!" at the funniest moments. Like if his brother is getting in trouble, or during an awkward silence or after he successfully zips up his backpack on his own. The kid has some GREAT timing :)
This age is so fun and I just want to bottle him up! What funny things have your kids said lately?
