As I put the Easter ham in the oven, the Peanut stood next to me and said, “See ya later, ham!”
The Peanut poached a stuffed teddy bear from Ms. B’s room. When we asked the Peanut what her ‘new’ bear’s name was, she said, without hesitation, “Bobby Joo Joo.” Alright, then. Bobby Joo Joo it is. The other day I heard her singing a song about “Me and Bobby Joo Joo.” No joke. It lacked some of Janis’ flair, but not her enthusiasm.
Me: I don’t like that cough.
Peanut: Why? (Is this the first ‘why?’ Surely not. But as I write this, I’m wondering…)
Me: It makes me sad. I want you to be healthy.
Peanut: Okay, then. I won’t cough. I’ll just cry.
Peanut: Where’s Daddy?
Me: He’s at work.
Peanut: You go to work, too?
Me: Yep. Mommy and Daddy go to work during the day.
Peanut: (As we pull into the daycare parking lot). I go to work in the day, too.
Me: You’re pretty smart!
Peanut: I’m not pretty smart!
Me: Oh? What are you, then?
Peanut: I’m a little bit funny!
