Lil Sis: I’m scared!!
Me: Of what?
LS: Of the dragon! In the living room!
Little Man: Don’t worry, Mei-Mei, I’ll get it! I’m Ironman!! P-shew! P-shew!
Lately, to Little Man’s I-want-I- want chorus, I’ve been telling him, “LM, all my life, my mama, your Mimi, told me, ‘Wantin’ ain’t gettin’.” So the other day he made me eat my words:
Me: LM, it’s bathtime.
LM: I’m after Mei-Mei.
Me: I still want you to go upstairs and start getting ready.
LM: Well, what your mommy always told you, “Wantin’ ain’t gettin’!”
In case you’re wondering, I still got what I wanted
About 2 1/2 weeks before Christmas (and yes this is a repeat, but I want to have it here for posterity):
Little Man: Mommy, I got you a present! It’s slippers! Do you want to open it today?
Little Man: Where is the sun?
Me: It’s over there, it’s going down.
LM: Where does the sun go when it touches the ground?
Me: It goes to Japan.
LM: Is that where the sun lives?
Little Man: Mommy, what was that stuff with the blueberries on the bag?
LM: Mommy, that oatmeal was way better put in these cookies.
