Conversations with a chid



Mother and Child By Kadir Nelson

The conversations with CJ are getting to be funnier day by day. He's such a character that this is definitely going to be a weekly installment, so here are a few we've had over the last week:


On Silence

Me: CJ please get off the bed, I'm trying to make it up.
CJ: Ok Mommy but I'm not talking to you anymore.
Me: Ok, I'll finally get some peace and quiet
CJ: I don't say I'm going to be quiet, I'm just not talking to you.

Its wrong to spank a kid for being smart right? I just turned away from him.

Music is the Message

CJ: Mommy I'm a Hip Hop boy
Me: what? you like all kinds of music, who told you that you were a Hip Hop boy?
CJ: Myself
Me: ok. Sing me a song then
CJ: No Hip Hop boys rap &dance *starts break dancing*
Me: I can't
CJ: Can't is not a word

*Yet another example of my words biting me in the butt.

Christmas needs to make its way to NY, screw that town

CJ has all of a sudden decided in order to go to sleep I have to sing Christmas carols. I do it even thoug Christmas songs make me want to jump off the nearest ledge. His favorite is "santa claus is coming to town" and he picked up all the words after one of my renditions that included tap dancing and jazz hands what? It was fabulous thank you
. Anyway last night I did the regular songs but all of a sudden CJ had questions.

Me(and CJ) singing: you betta not cry I'm telling you why Santa Claus is coming to town
CJ: Mommy is New Yawk (yes that's how he says it) a town?
Me No its a city, *continues singing*
CJ: hmm so Santa is not coming *cue tears NOW*
Me: No he's coming to cities too. Town just sounds better in the song.
CJ: I want to say "Santa Claus is coming to NY" ok?
Me: ok that's fine but it won't sound the same
*why do I get myself into these crazy conversations, if I was thinking I would have just said YES*
CJ *singing* you better not cry I'm telling you why Santa Clause is coming to town and NY too
Me: Boy go to bed!

OMG!!! CJ NEEDS a reality show! I'm dead serious. No, scratch that, he needs his own channel, CJ-NN. That dude is hilarious!
Consider my day made. Thanks, CJ (and Mommy)!

I see CJ and Tyra have the same writers. I wish I knew where they get the "I'm not talking to you" nonsense from. Sometimes we let her get away with stuff cause she is so damn hilarious.

OMG...I swear the funniest kids are those of bloggers. We could have a whole blog just based off of our kid-isms. LOL. CJ is to cute!

that "I'm not talking to you anymore" and it's equally annoying cousins, "I'm not you friend" and "I don't like you" are the bane of my maternal existence.

Still it's funny as hell when it happens to someone else *points and laughs*

CJ will make the PERFECT son-in-law!
