A Few (cute/hilarious) Moments in Time

Okay, these are long overdue, but I have been writing them down so I wouldn't forget because I seriously have the funniest kid ever. I laugh all day long! Enjoy!
  • Since Judah has been "talking", his favorite "word" is "ah-goo". (That's a lot of quotation marks). :) Roman will say "want to talk to Judah" and proceeds to get right in his face and shout "ah-goo".
  • I asked Roman if he wanted yogurt, toast or fruit for breakfast. "Yogurt", he responded. Then he added "I should probably get a spoon".
  • Roman has been singing "twinkle, twinkle little star" while sitting on the toilet. (This started because Grandma told him to "tinkle tinkle"...apparently tinkle and twinkle are one in the same). Anyway, Roman's version goes like this:
Twinkle, twinkle, little star
how I wonder what you are
Up above the world so high
like a triangle in the sky...

  • Roman trying to tell Mary to close her eyes comes out "Mary's eyes off"
  • Roman counts to 10...then I have to prompt him with 11 but he will continue 12, 13, usually skips 14, 15...I have been trying to work on getting him to 20. The other day I continued "15, 16, 17, 18, 19..." I paused waiting to see if he would remember "20"...instead he enthusiastically yelled "JELLYFISH!"
  • While riding in the car with Joe's parents, their GPS said "turn left 2 miles". Roman piped up "Miles and Kim and Andrew".
  • At the end of reading On the Night You Were Born it says "Heaven blew every trumpet and played every horn on the wonderful, marvelous night you were born". The picture shows a french horn and a saxophone, so I have been pointing them out to Roman and talking about the instruments...only now he always points and says "french trumpet!"
  • Since Judah got baptized, Roman often prays "thank you for baptism".
  • Trying to explain retirement to a two year old is a very difficult task. The librarian in Boone retired recently. Roman still says "go see Judi" every time we go to the library. So, I tried to explain, "Judi doesn't work at the library anymore. She moved to South Dakota because she is retired. That means she doesn't go to work now. We won't see Judi at the library anymore". Roman seemed to take it all in and then asked "Is she sleeping?"
  • The other night Mary and Tony watched Roman so that Joe and I could go out for dinner. The next morning, Roman told me he "ate french fries...at Old McDonald's".


  1. Love it! He is just too much fun.

  2. My sister's neice calls it Old McDonald's too!
