One of the things I love most about having children is the funny things they say. I have enjoyed many "kid"-isms over the past 7 years, and now that Mackenzie is 2 and talking up a storm, I am sure there will be many more!
Recently, Logan had a project for school. He had to pick a historical black figure and write 5 interview questions/answers and create a poster and timeline of this figure's life. Many of his friends chose Michael Jackson, Michael Jordan and other popular sports and entertainment icons (although strangely no one chose Tiger Woods, hmmmm....). But Logan chose Colin Powell....LOVE THAT KID! Here is how the conversation went...
Logan: Mom, did you know that he is a 4-Star General in the Army! That is so cool!
Me: you know what is even COOLER than that? He was the Secretary of State!
Logan: Mom, being a general is way cooler than being a secretary, duh!
I stand corrected.
So, since Logan did such a super job on his Black History Project, he gets to go out to dinner with Dad at the restaurant of his choice. Logan's choice for dinner tonight is Vito's Italian Restaurant...not because he loves Italian (because usually he would rather steak or ribs), but because he is in love with the owner's daughter, Francesca. Francesca is in his class at school and is full-blooded Italian. She has had a crush on Logan since the beginning of the year, but he has recently started referring to her as his "girlfriend"....seriously, my kid has a girlfriend? I am waaaay to young for this!
We have recently purchased an iTouch, because we needed one more electronic mobile device in our home (we are now up to 3 cell phones and 3 computers and now the iTouch). So Logan and I have had fun uploading and listening to music including the song "Tik Tok" by Kesha (no, I have not yet turned into the stereotypical mom who listens to easy-listening music all day!). In the song there is a reference to Mick Jagger of the Rolling Stones...so here is the conversation I had with Logan...
Logan: what's a "Mick Jagger"...do you get it at McDonald's like a mcnugget?
Me: He's a singer in a band
Logan: what band?
Me: The Rolling Stones
Logan: who are they?
So a few more funnies from my sweet baby, Mackenzie...
Whenever we turn the TV off, she clearly asks "what happened?" then proceeds to find the "mote" (Kenzie for "remote") and tell me to "fix it"!
My personal favorite is when she comes to tell me that either Logan or Emma "farted". Farting is big in our house....and we are all very well-informed when anyone has farted (not that the smell wouldn't alert us...and the entire neighborhood!).
I love kids and the funny, sweet things they say. Enjoy your kids and all of the wonder and joy they bring to life!
