To my amazement, my mild road rage has rubbed off on my eldest or is it that his verbal skills are improving without me noticing? (I believe it's the latter) I mean, I am noticing his talking a lot more but just didn't take into account ability to repeat me!
The story goes: As I was driving down 17, I realized I needed to be one lane to the left at the last minute. I said "oh cr*p" (not too bad, hopefully - it could have been a lot worse) Well, to my surprise from the backseat comes the sweetest sounding "oh cr*p" you've ever heard! I knew what he was saying but I don't think anybody else would have understood him. If he had not just repeated it and said it at another time then I don't think I would have understood him but that's not the case here. Bottom line: Momma needs to watch her mouth around the boys!
Okay, okay - I don't always use bad language. There are some things that Hughes has said that are really cute. His latest phrases are:
"that was a close one" - getting into the car as it is starting to rain
"I can't hear you" - to David while David was trying to get him in the bathtub
"think, think, think" - says this while pointing to his head anytime he's trying to make a
"c'mon Banks, chase me" - always wants Banks to chase him
And, of course, I can't leave Banks out of this post. His latest sayings are:
"I do" - when asked if he wants something
"nooooooooo" - (drawn out like that) anytime he says the word no
He's big into naming our bedrooms - "my room, Hughes' room, mama dada room"
"Hi Hughes" - every morning when he sees Hughes
