I'm Cracking Myself Up, Part 1


No one ever finds three year old hilarity as funny as the parents of said three year old, but in case you actually do find it humorous, here's hoping your funny bone is tickled...



Yesterday, Herb stayed home from work with flu-like symptoms - fever, congestion, fatigue, etc.  He spent most of the day in bed and requested a Shamrock Shake.  As Levi and I were in the line for the drive-through, he was talking on the phone to Grandma Me-Maw (my mom).

Levi:  My daddy is sick!
Grandma Me-Maw:  Oh no, what's wrong?
Levi:  He ate too much food and he might die, so we're getting him more ice cream.

My best guess is that he overheard the conversation where we were discussing Herb's high blood pressure and the affect that salty ham balls at dinner the night before were having on him...

One night looking out the car window, he says, "That moon is lovely in my heart."

In the car the other day, Charlotte (the baby I watch), was wailing in the backseat.  I couldn't get her pacifier at the time, so Levi looked over and tried to comfort her.

Levi: It's okay Charlotte, you don't have to cry because God loves you!

Speaking of theology, he's currently fixated on the concept of heaven - and he does NOT like the idea of it.  I'm sure it's mostly because he's perfectly content here on Earth, which is not a bad thing.  Recently he asked me if there would be soccer in heaven, to which I replied, "Probably..."  Although, I'm not sure?

Later that week he said, "Mom, I love God, I just don't like heaven."

Mom:  Levi, you're hilarious, you're cracking me up.
Levi: No mom, I'm cracking myself up.

Finally, a little potty talk.  We declared potty training a day time success a few weeks ago and celebrated with the purchase of three cars from the movie, "Cars!"

Imagine our panic one day when we heard Levi exclaim, "I have to pee, and I AM!"

Only to realize that "I am" didn't mean "I am going in my pants right now," but rather "I am walking to the bathroom to do my business at this moment."

It sure is fun to the see the faces of friends and family members when they hear Levi shout the same thing, announcing each trip to the lavatory.
