As most of you know, I'm a full-time Nanny. My job can be super challenging-but the rewards are amazing. (And I'm not just saying that...promise!)
One of my favorite rewards? The things that come out of their mouths! ( Meaning, words. :) )They can literally turn a rough day into a thing of the past.
I thought it would be entertaining and bring a smile if I shared some of my favorite things that they've said. I'm thinking I may share a few of their quotes from time to time. It feels like I'm withholding valuable gushes and giggles. :)
Me: "Lets not get mud on my shirt, okay?"
G (age 2.5) : "Why not?"
Me: "Because it's a new shirt."
G: "I'm soooo proud of you, Manda!"
G: "Because you got a new shirt!"
Thanks, G. I'm pretty proud of myself too. :)
G: "One time, I made a toot and a poop came out. And it was green."
Me: "G, what would you like to drink?"
G: " Juice "
Me: "I couldn't find any. How about some ice water?"
G: " Let ME check."
Me: "But, I just looked and there wasn't any. Why do you want to check?"
G: "Because, *I'm* smart!"
Hm. I wasn't sure if I should be insulted or not...ha! And for the record, he discovered some orange juice. BUT, in my defense. I was searching for his juice boxes. :)
Me: "G, who's your girlfriend at School?"
Me: "Oh yeah? Is she pretty?"
G while nodding, "Yes. She's a pot-pie!"
This one was hilarious to me. I've heard "cutie pie"...but "pot pie?" No.
Me: "J, who should we build a lego house for?"
J (age 1.5) : "Chick." (As he holds up a plastic chicken leg)
He walks over to the toilet and taps it proudly, "Mama", he says. :)
Me: "Who is mowing their grass right now?"
J: "MiMi!" (Which is what he calls me.)
J: "Noooo, see-y. see-y." (silly)
Apparently the thought of me mowing is ridiculous! :)
J's parents refer to the dog, Britney, as "Brit-doggy-dog" on occasion. So instead of learning simply "Dog", J calls her "Doggy-Dog". :)
Hope this brought a smile. Pay attention to what those little people say! It can change the whole day for ya.
