John David Pate

So it has been far too long since I have added some sweet talk to this blog. I MUST do a better job. For now though, I am going to focus on one kid at a time. Today is John David. He has definitely coined a few phrases lately. One that comes to mind is...."Don't say that to me out of your mouth!" If he is told to do something that he doesn't want to do (like "pick up your toys" or "no you can't have 2 honey buns")....But in the same aspect he also shares words of pure sweetness too. Here is a couple from this week.

Driving home from school soon after we traded the van for the Pilot:
John David, "Look Mommy, it is a our van, somebody got it, hurry go stop them"
Mommy, "No buddy, that is not our van. Remember Mommy gave the van back to Mr.John at the car store."
John David, "Nooooo, (crying now), don't say that Mommy, that is hateful" (Everything is hateful if you say something he doesn't agree with)
Mommy, "John David, I thought you liked our new car, the Pilot"
John David, "You not pay attention to me, I said, Noooo, (crying more now) I don't want you to say that to me again"
Mommy, "I think somebody needs a nap!"
John David, "Wahhhhhh, You keep saying that to me, Nooooooo Mommy!"
Mommy, "John David, I sure do love you buddy. I am sorry you feel so distraught over the trading of our van"
John David, (with a calm and sweet voice) "Huh, I don't know that Mommy, I love you, You are my sweet and precious Mommy!"

Last night tucking into bed John David says, "Mommy, I love to smell you, you don't smell like hummos tonight, you smell like my Mommy" and then he asked me, "Mommy, how does your throw up get into your mouth?"....(he recently had a stomach virus and puked all night....very disturbing and he hated it, of course, so now the question is posed, "HOW does that throw up get in your mouth!?" Lol!

This kid never ceases to amaze me. Keeps me laughing daily! So thankful for him.
