The Boy Child asserts some authority

He's feeling his oats, got a bit of a swagger to his step, is taking charge and is not afraid to let you know it. He's also about 6 weeks away from being three years old.

This weekend, he says to his mother:

"Mamma, go sit couch. You in time out. You trouble!"

Last night, getting ready for bed, it was my turn:

BC: Pappa, you no drink my milk. You drink my milk, police come, take you away put you in jail.

Me: Why would they put me in jail?

BC: You drink me milk, you get sick. [Looks defiantly at me and says with emphasis] That is mine reason.

Me: Got it. Don't drink your milk. Check.

Also, two nights ago, we had the following exchange:

Me: Boy Child, do not push your sister off that stool! You could hurt her!

BC: [Outrage written all over his face; shaking his finger at me for emphasis] NO. SAY. THAT. WORD. ME!!!!

Me: What word, honey? What word are you objecting to?

BC: [Intense concentration, pause] Me no know what word. Me no ha'member.

Me: Well, if you can't tell me the word, how can I not say it?

BC: [sighs dejectedly] Me know.

I think its gonna be a long ride. Fun, but long.

That's hilarious, RP I love the 3 year old speak, well done. I knew I was in trouble when my little guy started telling me to clean up our room. "Daddy your room messy, clean up! Clean up!".

Just the other day he wanted me to go squash a bug, and I apparently was not moving fast enough. He said "Come squish bug.... Daddy, bug not going away".

I'm laughing cause my 8-weeks from 3 year old sounds much the same. He has begun the audible grunt/sigh when something doesn't go his way and points and wags his finger at me when mama has been bad! I love it. I absolutely love it.

"If you drink my milk you'll get sick." Gee, I wonder how he got that idea! LOL

I miss that little boy speak. Burger turns 4 in a couple of weeks and he progressed past that adorable speach half a year ago.


Good times. Good times...

Oh he is such a sweetheart! Did you ever figure out what word he didn't like?

Awww! Love it! This just cracked me up:

"Me: Well, if you can't tell me the word, how can I not say it?

BC: [sighs dejectedly] Me know."
