Conversations with a child

When I first found out I was pregnant I have to admit I wasn't all "Whoo Hoo" but as the pregnancy progressed I got excited about the fun I would have with this little person I was carrying and nurturing. Then came the big day and after a long walk and a few hours of pushing he was here (ok it was way more than that but whatever). My first thought when I  held CJ was "Oh shoot, I think he has my attitude" because his little teeny lips were screwed up and his eyebrow was raised like "What?".

Fast forward to one years old:

He was a chatterbox, but thankfully we really didn't know what he was talking about. He's sing songs and say I love Mommy. I'd read to him from his collection of books or just whatever I was reading including the NY Times. I could lay in the bed WAY Past 7am back then and he'd lay there with me... Aww Good times.

Then he turned 2:

Now he was yelling and screaming "No" and "I don't like him/her" and besides the few temper tantrums he was a rather pleasant child. I started to see more and more that he was my child though. Example when I was planning his birthday party and he wanted that Champagne fountain, and he wouldn't forget or let it go.  Oh and let's not forget how he use to love to say "Damn it" and "Jesus Christ" ALL MOMMY'S BOY!

Now he's 3:

and the best way to describe this age is RUN, RUN, JUMP, FLIP AND TALK TALK TALK!  HAHAHA But I love it. He's turning into such an amazing kid and I credit my spunky mommy attitude to it all (yeah yeah ya'll can say the Mr. played a part too ). Now what prompted me to write about CJ today (even though I own Ms. P that post) is a conversation we had this morning:

ME: CJ I have to get up now and get ready for work. You're staying with Grandma until Daddy gets home from work.
CJ: Your Grandma or Daddy's Grandma?
ME: My Mom
CJ: Mommy why do you call your Grandma, Mom she's your Grandma and you're the Mommy
Me: No Nana is my Grandma, and your Grandma is my mom
Me: ok, we'll talk about that later, I need to get up and get dressed.
CJ: Mommy can you read me "Where the wild things are"
ME: C.JJJJJJJJ you know I have to get dressed
CJ: Moose A Moose says you have to ready to me 20 (he says tenny) minutes a day.
*So I give in and read the book*
Then go and get in the shower, when I came back in the room he was laying on the bed watching "Imagination Movers". I continued to get dressed then asked him if he wanted to watch something else..... his response: "Mommy Imagination Movers was my favorite show back when I was little and you need to go to work you're going to be late"
All I could do was laugh. He's too much and he comes by it naturally ;P..

Thanks little bit for making a rather hum drum day more interesting :)
