Valentines day cookies obviously made a big impression on our child

Posted in Baby Babble at 10:11 pm by supertinyguy

Tonight we were laying in bed reading stories when Beckett looked over at my I Heart NYC shirt and said,” hey mommy are you wearing your heart shirt because it’s heart shape time” Oh the cute that comes out of that kids mouth.

“Daddy dry me off!”

I pulled Beck out of the tub and toweled him off.

He then bent over a bit and reached behind him with both hands, looking up “Daddy, is my tuchus wet?”

Random Cuteness

Posted in Baby Babble, Caught In The Act, Dad..., Frickin' Cute at 4:52 pm by supertinyguy

We were having lunch at the Garden Cafe when nature called for Beck.

We went into the bathroom and as usual Beck told me to leave. Appearently, 3 year olds want to gather their thoughts and meditate when pooing.

Soon I heard , “Daddy?”

I walked in and heard, “Daddy!! I went poo-poo!! Yea!!! I love you!!”

“Manners, Clarice…

…must be kept.” Unless you’re a toddler.

Up until last night, when Beck would crawl into bed with us he’d crawl over me to get to mommy with an incredibly cute, “S’cuse me daddy! Need pass by!”. Although it’s the wee hours of the damn morning, it always makes us smile and laugh.

This morning, Boo came a-calling with a new greeting.

“Daddy!? Move yo’ butt!”

I kid you not. To be fair, there was much smiling and laughing

Riding in my car…

Most of you know I’m an IT guy…also known as a Jedi. Other than Beck’s constant desire to play in daddy’s office, we never really mention what I do. The following conversation occurred @ 5:33pm:

Boo: Daddy?

Me: Yeah, Boo?

B: Finish work?

M: Yep!

B: Daddy fix compooter?

M: [astonished] What?

B: Daddy fix compooter?

M: [Big smile] Yeah, I fixed the computer!

B: Compooter broke? Daddy fix?

M: Daddy fixed it.

B: All finished!

From the mouths of babes…

Posted in Baby Babble at 3:00 pm by supertinyguy

We used to be hip.

Pop culture references and the latest slang flowed from our lizz-ips. We were so hip we couldn’t see over our belts.

Now, our hip references consist of whatever Boo has been spilling lately.

I already told you about “Dere doo doh” (Here you go)

Now our speech and random exclaimations include Boo-isms, such as:

“Fuh-nee!!” used to acknowledge the humor in a situation

“Huggies” not the diaper, but an actual hug.

“Move!!” as in “Excuse me, kind sir/madam. I require access to the area you occupy, please”

“Happy Cakes” Used by Beck to describe a birthday cake, used by us to discribe pretty much any dessert.

The list is growing daily. Some are one-offs, others seem to be sticking around as he adds words at a dizzying pace. Often he’s just repeating the last couple of words we say, cute non-sequitors echoing from the back seat.

Keep ’em coming, bright boy…

are sticking around.

Art imitates life….

When Beck hands you something, sometimes you get a polite “there you go”. This of course goes through the cute-o-matic and comes out as, “Dere do doh…”.

Mommy and I say it to each other, jokingly.

Saturday, I was teaching class and after adjusting a block or stance I realized I was saying, “Dere do doh…”. Lucky all my students are parents, huh?

Words, words and more words…and “huggies”!

Hey Hey, we’re the Monkey-ahs…

Posted in Baby Babble, Frickin' Cute, Puzzling at 10:03 pm by supertinyguy

Over the last few weeks, Beck has been adding words at an alarming and charming pace. Sometimes, there is a clash of terms. “Monkey” is currently “Monkey-ahs”.

For example, his growing obsession with Monsters, Inc. For a bit it was “Monsties”, but it has crossed over to “Monkey-ahs” for the most part.

This Sunday morning, Boo excitedly asked me, “Monkey-ahs! Monkey-ahs!…” I located the DVD. Then is was “Ho’d! Ho’d!” He wanted to carry the disc and then put it in the player. He gets so excited, he hits the buttons too many times, making him get more excited because nothing is happening. I love watching the wee hands…no doubt the hands of a surgeon…working to put the DVD in and pushing the tray to make it retract.

The DVD in, he runs over to the couch. “Sit! Sit” He climbs up and pats the cushion next to him, so I sit down and we start to watch the flick. I grabbed the blanket and covered our legs and Beck leaned up against me and rested his head on my chest. He does this little thing where he puts a hand on you and kind of pats you with his fingers. It kills me, every time. I got, like, 15 minutes of that.

Sunday morning, piled up on the couch with my son, coffee and “monkey-ahs”. Sucked to be anyone else…

As if hearing it wasn’t enough…

Posted in Baby Babble at 8:23 pm by supertinyguy

Mommy is a crafty mom. Even though we hear “NO!” a thousand times a day, we want to make sire he remembers the script, each morning.
