Watching The Amazing Race Together Joy: Grant, when you get bigger do you want to go on the Amazing Race with Mom?
Grant:(shaking his head violently) No, no
I guess I'll have to find another partner.
Playing Outside Grant was playing with a couple of saucer sleds at his aunt's house. He lined them up and called them "Mama" and "Dada." We asked, "Where's the baby?" He looked around for a second then said, "Work." I always tell him his dad and grandpa are at work when he asks, so I guess he figures that anyone who's not there is at work.
While we were giving thanks for our breakfast and lunch today, when we got to the part of helping Grant obey he burst out with "Yes!" both times. Is that like a toddler "Amen"?
Gymboree 8/25/09 As I was getting Grant ready this morning for Gymboree, I told him he was going to slide, climb, and play. He wasn't very excited. Then all of a sudden he asked, "Girls?" Apparently, climbing and sliding don't hold a candle to girls. Isn't it a little early to be excited about seeing girls??
Bible Story 10/11/09 We read the story about the birth of Jesus in Bethlehem before bed. I pointed to the picture of Jesus in the manger and asked who it was. Grant answered, "Bible Story Baby." We'll have to work on that.
Eating "Cow" 11/28/09 Grant ate some pastrami tonight for dinner and wanted to know if it was chicken. I told him, "No, it's cow." He looked at the piece in his hand and said, "Mooooo...bye, bye cow!" then stuck it in his mouth. Later he asked for "more cow, please." I think I should've just said "beef..."
Prayer 12/11/09 Grant LOVES to pray. I think we're the only parents who tell their kid he has to take 3 bites before we can pray again. Otherwise, he would have us pray after every bite. He's now decided that HE wants to be the one to pray. He folds his hands, squeezes he eyes tightly shut, and whispers "Pray, pray, pray...AMEN!"
"Fragile" 04/22/10 Grant: Can I have that?
Me: No, it's fragile. Do you remember what "fragile" means?
Grant: "Don't touch"
