As challenging as 3-years-old has been for us, it has been one of my favorite ages because of all the funny things Brody says on a daily basis! I've been trying to do a better job of writing down some of the funny things he says so that I can remember them years from now.
We were in a hurry at bath time a few weeks ago, so we put both kids in the shower. Brody loves to take a shower, but Jillian hated it. I'm not even sure hate is a strong enough word. She was hysterical! Josh made a comment about how Brody was a big fan of the shower and Brody quickly replied with, "Yeah, and Jillian is a small fan of the shower!"
We were leaving the house a couple of weeks ago and I told Brody he needed to change out of his play shorts into some nice shorts. By nice shorts, I meant a pair of his khaki or plaid shorts. He looked at me really confused and said, "Are these play shorts my mean shorts?" :)
We were in the car one day recently and he randomly said, "God gave me Jillian. She was a gift from Him. Remember when I opened up that birthday present and there she was? It was when God gave her to me for my birthday." She was born just a couple of weeks before his 2nd birthday, so maybe he thinks she was a birthday present! Ha!
Josh and I were on the couch the the other night watching TV after the kids went to bed. Brody got up to use the bathroom and came into the living room to see what we were doing. The conversation went like this:
Brody: Hey, what are y'all doing?
Me: We are about to watch a TV show. You need to go back to bed.
Brody: I want to be a part of the "we" and watch with y'all!
Brody really loves mail right now! He loves to check the mail each day and he gets really excited when he receives mail. One thing he likes to do is "read" the mail that we get each day. He "reads" it, then at the end, he always says, "Glacias, Brave Warrior." I love hearing him say, glacias instead of gracias, and I love that he thinks everyone signs their letters with, "Gracias, Brave Warrior."
We love our funny boy so very, very much!!
