Kids say the funniest things.....

My kid is no exception. I really should be writing it all down but he just hits me with zingers all the time.

Look, he's 2 1/2 and he says things 2 1/2 year olds shouldn't be saying. No, I'm not teaching him bad habits. An occasional bad word slips out but thankfully, he hasn't repeated those yet. I'm getting better about catching myself.

Life has ways of throwing you curveballs all the time and my life is no exception. I was handed a wonderful opportunity at the end of January that I couldn't pass up. It might even lead to something better but my lips are sealed for now. No, it has nothing to do with the business but it will only make it better, I promise.

With this recent change, I needed more time during the day so I sent my son back to daycare. He's been home with me for most of the 2 1/2 years with the exception of a 6 month period where he went to daycare.

He's reached the point in his life where he needs other kids to interact with and a 'school' setting. I didn't want to be the parent who dropped their kid off at kindergarten and said 'have fun!' I wanted to ease him into this.

Well, 4 weeks later, he pretty much runs the place. They don't know what to do with him in his room. He's a handful which is pretty much what I told them when I registered him but they poo-poo'd me. Anyway....

So in these 4 weeks, the kid has managed to take over Tutor Time and the Twaddler room. He's ready for the 3 year old room but he isn't potty trained yet and shows no signs of ever wanting too. I've been warned that boys are tough so I'm prepared for the long road ahead. His teachers, however, are not.

Just the other day, he tells me he has a girlfriend. But he pronounces it 'gawrlfred'.

Nick: Mama, I hab gawrlfred.
Me: What?!?
My Mom: What did he say?
Me: I think he said he has a girlfriend.
Nick: Mama, I hab gawrlfred.
Me: Really? Whats her name?
Nick: Gigi
My Mom: Is GiGi pretty?
Nick: Yeah!
My Mom: What color hair does she have?
Nick: Red
My Mom: Red? Is she prettier than grandma?
Nick: Yeah!

So the next morning, I drop him off and inquire about GiGi. Her real name in Genevieve and she's there on Tuesdays and Thursdays. She has curly brown hair and really big brown eyes. She's cute. I guess she's in Nicks Circle Time group and they sit next to each other. How sweet.

Now I get twice a week reports when I pick him up about the fun things he and GiGi do together. I guess she's the only one he lets cut in front of him on the slide and he holds her hand on the playground.

Watch your daughter! My son is on the lose!
