Calvin barely said three words before his second birthday. But the week of his birthday (March 14), he just exploded with speech. It's a delight to hear his thoughts, even if they get jumbled sometimes. Here are some of his latest funny sayings:
Dad said to Cal, "You're being disobedient. Do you know what happens when you disobey?"
Cal: "No milk and no eggs!"
Cal pushed Ken's lips up into a smile and said, "I make you happy."
(This was in May) Uncle Glen said to Calvin, "You need to come to my house soon and see my fish tanks." Calvin looked at him, got a grin on his face, and said, "I eat fish!"
Daddy said to Calvin, "Is Mommy hot or what?"
Calvin: "Or what."
When Dad gunned the engine on the van to pull out into traffic, Cal called out from his carseat, "You did it, Daddy!"
Calvin was putting his shirt on by himself. It got stuck on his head and he couldn't see. He said, "Where is me?"
Cal pulled his shirt off almost all the way, but the collar was still stuck around the crown of his head. The shirt was hanging inside out over his hair like a bandana. He said, "I a pirate!"
Dad asked Cal, "What happens when you are disobedient?"
Cal: "Ladybugs will eat me."
Calvin is not the only funny bone in our family. Ken provides tons of laughter to our home as well. He is having fun working at Macaroni Grill and comes home daily with new funny stories. If you know Ken at all, you know he is full of stories. Every time I think I've heard all his stories and jokes, he comes up with another one. This job will be good for his "Story Repertoire," as I call it. I am delighted that he is so jazzed up about his new job. It's fun to see.
