Virgil: (After picking up a foam letter B) Mommy, what’s this letter?
Me: You tell me. What letter is it?
Virgil: It’s a B!
Me: That’s right! What sound does a B make?
Virgil: ‘buh’ ‘buh’ B!
Me: And what words start with the ‘buh’ sound?
Virgil: What word?
Me: ‘buh’ buh’ Ball?
Virgil: ‘buh’ Ball!
Me: And ‘buh’ ‘buh’ Banana?
Virgil: And ‘buh’ buh’ Monster Truck!
Random Kid at Chick-fil-A Playground to Virgil: Stop following me around.
Virgil: I can’t stop following you around.
My son is a zany little fellow, always coming up with something crazy to say. I’ve been told over and over again that I need to be writing these things down. But some of them are just too funny not to share. So I decided to start a new feature on my blog: Things My Kids Say. I say “my kids” because I know that in the not too distant future, one precocious little eight month old will be joining her brother in witty toddler banter. I’m thinking long-term here, folks.
So without further adieu, I bring you Things My Kids Say, Issue no. 001.
Virgil: (After screaming out randomly with a look of sheer terror on his face) Mommy! Addie is coming to bite me!
Really, Virgil? Your not-quite-eight-month-old sister, who still crawls on her belly and has no teeth is coming to bite you? At what, .00005 miles per hour? Run, son. You should definitely be afraid…
