Tiny Talk Back Track

Tiny Talk Tuesday celebrates our children and their view of the world. They continually make us laugh and by recording their Tiny Talk we can focus on one of the many JOYS of parenting!

If your kiddos made you laugh this week (don't they always), then feel free to share the humor!

Check out more Tiny Talks with Mary

My Tiny Talks this week will concentrate on the amusing things that my now 17, almost 18 year old said when he was just a little tyke! Now keep in mind that he said these things "eons" ago....and he may or may not have any recollection of them and would probably be embarrassed to know they are out there for the world to see, but ya know, I want them to be recorded someway and to record them in his baby book seems a little ridiculous, don'tcha think?

So let the remembering begin!

As a baby he would stand in his crib and call out "FOOD" in the most whiny, pathetic sounding cry he could come up with in the middle of the night. If someone had heard him they would think he was starving to death. I would come into his room and he would eat a small bowl of cheerios and all would be well again.

He would give us kisses as a baby and every time he would say "Wa, wa, wa" with every smack! From that time on a kiss has always been a "wa". Now I ask him if I can give him a "wa" and he runs!

He was a big fan of Legos Kits from the age of 3...and of course we had to put these together for him. He would hold the "constructions" for the kits and find the pieces for us!

He's just as cute now as he was 16 years ago, but he doesn't say such cute things anymore! I still love him just as much, though!

The most recent thing he said was just last year or so....so I'm not sure it qualifies as a "Tiny Talk" but he is still a kid, soooo...DH and I were talking about That Kid and we said "well we must have done ok, he's turning out pretty good." He turned to us and said, "You call this OK???" It cracked us up!!!

Kids say the darnedest things, huh???

What fun memories. It love hearing that those cute moments as a kid have remained as a standard in the house - "wa".
